Welcome Rhode Island School of Design – Business Visitors

Our landmark hotel in Providence, RI, is steeped in historic character dating back to the 19th century with European flair and New England charm. Step inside old-world elegance and let our seasoned staff impress you with our personalized service and meticulous attention to detail.

We are passionate about providing stellar hospitality, and our personality comes through in all we do. Located in the heart of downtown Providence’s vibrant theater district, our culture and passion for the arts are reflected in everything we offer. Vintage furnishing, art, and classic novels are sprinkled throughout the hotel. Retire to your sophisticated guestroom or suite fitted with oil paintings from world-renowned artists and sleep soundly amid the city. While the art you find throughout the hotel came from all over the world, we are particularly proud of the chine-collĂ© prints found in each room, commissioned for the hotel and created by local artist and RISD professor Nancy Friese.

We are a short walk to the RISD campus, and two blocks from the RISD student-run gallery on Westminster Street. Also in our neighborhood you will find the Providence Performing Arts Center, Trinity Repertory Company, and the Rhode Island Convention Center. Unique shops, independent restaurants, and art galleries are right outside our front door. Above all else, we invite you to experience our personalized service, not found in any other hotel in Providence. Come stay and see why RISD visitors have chosen Hotel Providence over the past century.
