8/10 Very good

Providence stay at the Graduate.
An older property, it has an elegant lobby. Our suite was interesting, with an eclectic decor of modern furnishings against the vintage architecture.. There was a photo montage of famous people who had graduated from Providence colleges, and a fun mural depicting a library of books whose titles were spoofs of Providence. The bathroom was small, especially the shower, but serviceable. Our only complaint was that the room was a cold 64°, we fiddled with the thermostat to no avail. After informing the desk, the hotel provided us with a space heater as apparently there was some issue with the heating system. We were in the city for a concert, and the hotel is located within walking distance to the Performing Arts Center. I would stay there again.

Beautiful but not enjoyable
No hot water 2x. couldn't adjust the blinds in the windows, couldn't adjust the speed of the ceiling fan (only high) room was always cold and the shower head was loose and flopped around. The room was beautiful but not enjoyable. We left and went to a different location.
