It’s good to be back in Providence. This time we spent two nights at the Hotel Providence, located in downtown and central to so many of my favorite shops. Charlie and I took over their Instagram since they are the only dog friendly hotel in Providence. They even have a doggie lounge with couches for them. Which Charlie clearly appreciated…
The hotel has 80 rooms of which, 16 are suites, 4 of which are King Suites. The hotel is arts and literature themed with the suites named after famous New England creatives. We stayed in the Dr. Seuss King Suite, which had his books all over the room. Very appropriately since Dr. Seuss and I are both originally from Massachusetts and I grew up reading all of his books.
The hotel has over $3.5 million worth of art and antiques. It’s pretty ridiculous and not bad for a hotel that originated in the late 1800s for $1.50/night. From the rugs in the lobby to the Vanity Fair covers from 1873 that hang in the conference room you have no idea how incredible every piece of furniture and art is. And it’s incredibly well preserved. So much history in what feels like you’re entering a vintage scene of your rich great, great, great aunts house (if you had an incredibly wealthy one). I didn’t but I assume it would look something like this and then the bathrooms have this serene, modern openness with white marble tiles. And if you’re lucky enough to stay in a King Suite includes a Jacuzzi bathtub. Taking a tour of the hotel and learning about the history gave me so much appreciate for every art piece around me.
