Rated 1 out of 5 by NoHotWater123 Not a good stay
We've stayed at this hotel in past years.... has been fine.
While the staff is nice and friendly, we had several issues...
- no hot water on the first day, resolved on day two.
- ants in the bathroom
- no shower curtain hanging in shower, we had to request one.
- no maid service, at all, on our second day at the hotel. Room untouched by housekeeping.
Club room was nice, clean and breakfast was reasonable. But holy cow, not a good stay !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jay66 Good For Business Stays
This is my go to hotel when on business in Providence. While it's certainly your prototypical airport hotel, I can say that the service has always been good, rooms are clean, and the club lounge does the trick. This place meets my business needs.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Espeon Stay Somewhere Else
Hotel is extremely outdated. When arriving in my room it smelled stale and musty. Also rented a conference room for a series of meetings. The conference room had very little ventilation and smelled of mildew, like a stale locker room. I sent a complaint to the catering manager in charge of the room and he and the hotel manager met with me to discuss. When they entered the room they completely agreed with my complaint yet the best they could do was offer us some free beverages and snacks. Don't be swayed by the rates, you get what you pay for at this hotel. I will never stay here again and would recommend that anyone considering this hotel reconsider.

Rated 2 out of 5 by rmh6050 Needs a little updating...
The exterior and lobby are very nice but the rooms, at least on the first floor, leave a bit to be desired. Stains on walls and floors, amenities just pushed in corner of bathroom vanity, musty smell and the breakfast was not great. Many other nice hotels in the area I would consider before returning to this one. Does not live up to the "Sheraton" name. Sorry. (PS. the bed was great!!)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Adrian60 Awful hotel
Old, outdated, mattress very uncomfortable, could not regulate room temperature, no refrigerator in the room, shower head not working well, rusted toilette paper holders, poor choice for breakfast (breakfast at the club was awful, and the one in the restaurant had very few choices, plus nasty waiter).
When we came back to the room on Saturday around 6:00 p.m. room was not done.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Adrian60 Very bad hotel
Hotel needs renovations.
Mattress was awful (could not sleep well), there is no refrigerator in the room, room temperature could not be regulated (or it was too cold or too hot)
Toilette paper holders in the bathroom were rusted, paper came out in little pieces.
Shower head worked bad, top part was loose.
Breakfast in the club was very bad (frozen bagels, no fruit)
Had breakfast with coupon in restaurant, very poorly served, server was nasty, there was no fruit and very poor choice of food.
Very upset and disappointed. Worst Sheraton hotel ever!

Rated 2 out of 5 by matt224 Needs Updating
I recently stayed at this establishment. It was very interesting first walk in only because it was out dated. The front desk in the late afternoon was great. Getting to my room on the other hand, the place feels very old. The carpet, walls, and furniture needs a serious make over. Compared to other Sheraton stays, I did not get that "We want to welcome you to our establishment" feel. Fire alarm went off around 9:00PM the night before I had to work. I think what makes me really want to write this is I called recently to receive a receipt through email and I am still waiting for my email. A sense of "not so urgent" is coming to mind. I was told they were going to do renovations this year. Hope it builds up the quality of the establishment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WineAdvisoryGroup Good SPG Value Hotel
This place is a good choice for those, especially families, who are looking for a reasonably priced hotel in the Ft. Lauderdale area. Inland, but accessible to a lot of places. An older hotel but well maintained. Staff is efficient and aims to please. SPG benefits are nice. Our most recent stay was fine... all 3 rooms were located together and worked well for our family.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sidsyS Staff doesn't recognize SPG platinum Member
This is probably the first SPG property where staff fails to recognize SPG platinum members. To begin with, I ordered a breakfast omelet by dialing 140 and it never showed up in the morning. Then, there was no water in my room and when I was walking by the front desk, I thought to remind the young lady at the counter to get some bottles placed in my room. Not only she handed over the bottles to me right there and asked me to carry it myself but also, she told me that she would charge $8 for the water. I obliged and asked her to put the charge on my hotel bill but this has never happened at any Starwood property ever. I AM A PLATINUM MEMBER, I STAY AT SPG PROPERTY 3 NIGHTS EVERY WEEK AND THIS IS NO WAY TO TREAT A VALUED CUSTOMER. TRULY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by opolil Good location, poor facilities
Good location close to airport, but facilities look like they have not been updated in many years. Inconsistent housekeeping as well, like one bed missing a bedskirt. Bathroom was ok but lights had issues.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bobsreview Room Was Very Poor
Room 117: Carpet threadbare, stained & cigarette burns. Vinyl baseboard loose (water damage?) Bent electrical conduit by closet. Ancient alarm lock with wire hanging out. Furniture old and nicked up. Desk chair badly stained. Feedback card given to desk clerk on way out - no comment offered by staff. No contact from Sheraton office to this date.

Rated 1 out of 5 by TammyS Very Disappointing Stay
We checked in for a night prior to an early flight in the morning. We called the main desk to see if there was a function going on in the hotel because there was loud music playing. We were told that someone on the floor was having a party and that they usually went on until very late. We asked to have our room moved and were simply placed in another room on the same floor where the music was not as loud. We also now had to listen to the woman in the room next to us scream for most of the night. Needless to say, we were exhausted for our flight in the morning. I am extremely disappointed in the Sheraton. I have always thought that they were more of an upper scale hotel, but this stay was worst that of a roadside motel that books their rooms by the hour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovethesouth Pleasantly surprised
On my first visit to Providence I was welcomed by Barbara, a very friendly lady who made me feel at ease after a very rough trip. She told me how to find everything I needed while staying at the hotel. The room was great. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have slept in ever in all of my trips. Will definitely be back to stay when I return.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lamos34 A pleasant place to visit
We enjoyed our time at the Sheraton Providence. We stayed on a higher floor which appeared to be in the process of renovations. When leaving it appeared some other rooms on lower floors had yet to have renovations begin.
Our room had some old features (wallpaper for example) blended with modern furniture. Hopefully all the upgrades will be done soon.
The club lounge was adequate though it would have been nice to have alcoholic drinks available on the weekend, even if for a fee.
All in all a very pleasant stay. If in the area would not be opposed to returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DawnCahoonEdgar AMAZING STAFF
I'm in the process of relocating back to RI after living in CA for yrs. I'm trying to buy a house & I like my independence despite my family living here. A lot of house hunting w/ 3 small dogs. I am pleasantly surprised by just about everyone who works at the Sheraton (Only gave food/Bev a mid rate as I haven't used it- if I had to rate, by the employee Jessica:, it would be a 5 star rate). I have to specify that Jessica (who works at the bar/grill) is so friendly towards everyone staying, not just who she serves w/ room-service. She is a gem. I was checked in by a newer employee, Todd (he displayed great service, sweet guy). Alex (Club RM) is worth his weight in gold, Barbara (I love her sense of humor & she is always welcoming), Cindy is a sweetheart, & as for housekeeping, MaLand, has been very accommodating. As I'm w/ my dogs, I usually opt out of housekeeping, MaLand always asks if I need coffee/towels, dspite not using service. She always greets my dogs as if they're another guest. I've had good conversations with Joe (housekeeping supervisor).
I cannot list my favorite employee's here. So far, I love them all. How this hotel went to a Cat2 after my visit in Dec 2012, I don't know. I just want to add a thank you to every employee mentioned above. I apprecite your care/service that has made my situation easier.
I stayed for 10 days, then extended to another 9 days. I'd imgine, with house buying, I'll extend again!!!!! I've also stayed here throughout the past 4 years when visiting family.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 911pro Disappointed
Both my business and I stay exclusively at Starwood Hotels and this Sheraton was a little disappointing. The room was nice, the staff too. However the parking (or lack thereof) and food fell quite short.
Being the only Starwood property in Rhode Island you would think they'd want to impress a little more.
Good value for the price, however I'd be willing to pay more for more... Certainly not a flagship SPG hotel.

Staff , Staff, Staff!!!! As a regular guest I get a comfortable welcome home feeling and greeting everytime I walk through the doors. But I also see that same treatment to every guest. The staff makes all the difference.
Busy hotel, rooms are comfortable, mattresses are fantastic, 24/7 gym that provides earphones - nice touch.
It is a perfect place to stay for a business trip, , airport lay over, reasonably priced and close to the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Patrick99 Great Airport hotel, One of the Best Lounges
This is a very nice Airport area hotel. I have stayed in a few in Providence Airport area, and this is my favourite. It is modern, comfortable, easy to get into and out of. The staff are great and the Club Lounge is better than those in many of the big city Sheraton Hotels.
Only downside was that there really are no upgraded rooms for Platinum guests. A High floor for a view of a run down street or Airport Runway and parking lot isn't a big deal. The rooms don't get bigger or offer any special amenities. I also found Housekeeping to be a bit pushy trying to get my out of my room before my checkout time, constantly knocking on my door (despite the do not disturb sign) or stopping me in the hall.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SarahSaint This is a Sheraton???
This room was booked by my corp office for a business stay. The guy at the frontdesk was not very friendly. I got to my room to find the complimentary water bottle was open, used and had not been changed from the previous guest. The bathtub was peeling (looked like an old ceiling) and the shower curtain did not close to cover the entire space which left water on the floor. The room was either too hot or too cold. I had to keep getting up at night to adjust the temp. Upon checking out, the young man (same as day before) didn't ask how my room was, nor showed insterest in how my stay was. Once I got to work, I informed my Corp office about the terrible condition of this hotel. I'm sure they won't be using it again. Frankly, I would have had a better stay at a Motel 8. I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.

While an older hotel, they've done some nice refurbishment so it's very pleasant. What makes it is the great staff who'll do whatever it takes to serve. Parking is easy. Very enjoyable.

Outstanding service in the lounge and the morning and evening services were outstanding, hats off to Alesandro (Alex) I experienced his knowledge, and ability to converse with several guest in other languages treating each as he was there just to assist them. Outstanding service professional! I would definitely stay again the next time I am in Providence!

My wife and twin daughters made the trip for me and the hotel staff did everything to make it such as inviting stay! Danielle was excellent for our morning breakfast, Alex was awesome and engaging for our afternoon snacks. Freddie was great in getting us an upgrade that could accommodate our bed requirements given I had two children with us! Freddie, thank you for your generosity as well! Thanks you to the Sheraton staff!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Laurie5549 Very unpleasant
While bed was comfortable, I felt I was sleeping in a pool of bleach
There was a smell in the rest of the room of old and musty
Toilet was dirty
A lot of dust on the bathroom counter and the headboard of the bed
The bathroom sink was clogged - slow to drain
Parking was difficult to find and I had to walk quite a way to get into the hotel / back out to my car
When I told the front desk clerk that I wasn't too pleased about my stay, he simply said, "I'm sorry" and didn't even ask me why! If I were the manager looking to provide great customer service and return guests, I would have policies in place to get details of any complaints so they could be addressed...........poor housekeeping and management.
