A great place to visit with my college kid
Perfectly located just off the James River in downtown. Very trendy but comfortable. Staff was lovely, extremely helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Overall great hotel, will stay again!
Location was perfect, valet parking was flawless, the room was very spacious and comfortable. My only complaint was the cleanliness of the shower. Surface clean? Yes. Deep clean? No. Lots of mildew build up that can be taken care of with a little bit of elbow grease and the right tools.

New and Clean!
New, clean, and modern. Very friendly and helpful staff. They even offered to freeze something in their freezer for me overnight. Lovely view.

8/10 Very good

Good basic hotel
Good basic hotel with valet parking and a rooftop restaurant. The room configuration is different where the bathroom is not a separate space. There are no doors/walls for the sink/shower area and a pocket door for the toilet. Would def be uncomfy if you were with someone other than your significant other. Bed was comfortable but no duvet used (just the folded sheet so the gross comforter comes out and touches you at night). Good streaming TV to connect Netflix/HBO.

Perfect in every way
We chose Aloft Providence Downtown because of its proximity to the Rhode Island Hospital. Although I chose to not walk to the hospital, I was still glad to have chosen Aloft because of its two onsite restaurants, its cleanliness and overall friendly and modern amenities. Blu Violet’s outdoor (and indoor) dining was an excellent place to end the evening. Next time I will check out the other restaurant and the nearby park. I want to ride one of those scooters!
