Rated 4 out of 5 by BigBill Better than expected
In a smaller major city, at the airport one expects some let down. This hotel's staff more than makes up for the not yet upgraded rooms, furniture & fixtures that Sheraton is performing throughout the line. 5-8 years ago, most of the established Sheratons were showing their age, but the new renovations are jut great. This hotel is in process (Work area, restaurant/bar are upgraded), rooms are still a little in need of an update. The staff is one of the most cheerful I have encountered. I stayed multiple nights, so the staff was consistent.
Not only close to airport, off I-95 it is a generally convenient location, it is appreciated to have a more budget priced place to just "hang your hat " and sleep sometimes.
There were many obviously regular customers in the Club.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jodi52 fine for the night
The staff was very friendly and professional both at the main desk and restaurant. But the heating system was very loud. I can't stand 'white' noise!

i am a gold card member and they charged me 10 dollars to rent a fridge to cool my daughter's formula. Very disappointed. I had to wait 2 hours for a fridge.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mugebnil Terrible stay
Jessica at the front desk was amazing, however the rest of the staff was not. Breakfast attendants were terrible the two girls that work the morning shift I don't know their names were terrible. There were no bowls or plates and it was not at all busy . The girls were practically hiding in the back of the kitchen I had to almost walk in the back for plates. The dinner was terrible also there was one server for breakfast and he also doing room service. I waited more than an hour for my food and when it came his excuse was he the only one and there was a flight canceled so that's why he was so busy. There were only two other people in the restaurant besides me and they were also very upset. I have never seen such terrible service. If it weren't for Jessica I would never return to this property.

Barbara, Yolanda and Danielle went all out to make sure dining with 4 year old twins was a great experience. Yolanda even traveled all over to find us a decaf tea bag one morning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinky43 Location to Airport Rental Car Drop Off
This hotel is very close to gas station and the airport rental car drop off (only a few blocks away) without any hassle. BIG PLUS! However, other than a good restaurant inside the hotel, restaurants et al are not within the short walking distance. This clean hotel looks old and needs new facelift! Room is very good. However, for my wife's severe vision impairment and NIGHT blindness, there were several dark spots in room so maid provided several extra lamps which were VERY HELPFUL.
Food in inside hotel restaurant is excellent.

With the summer over and going to the beach is not an option. I wanted to do something fun with my best friend and our kids. I've stayed at this Sheraton in the past and my kids and I and had a ball. So I invited my friend and made sure we all had our bathing suits and we had the best time. The staff as always were friendly, informative and even though they were fully booked managed to get us connecting rooms. Thank you for bringing my girlfriend and I even closer...

Rated 1 out of 5 by jack110413 My nightmare at the Sheraton
A swingers club played loud music after 11PM in the room next to mine. When I complained twice to security, the security told the club members who complained. They began banging on my walls & door, yelling outside of the room. I finally escaped the hotel at 1AM. I slept in a chair at the airport for 5 hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loritep Hotel Great But Staff Surpassed All
We had a terrific stay at the hotel. It was very clean, our room was ready when we arrived and the food in the restaurant was great, but I have to say the best part of the stay was the outstanding staff at the hotel. From arrival we were warmly greeted and taken care of, staff members passing in the hallway had warm smiles and hellos, the maid service were wonderful and very accommodating. It was a really great stay and we would highly recommend the hotel and will definitely stay again. Thank you!!!

I took my family and it was wonderful, the front desk was great, they are very nice and friendly, the staff was great, everything you need in a hotel is there, you could see the planes, the pool was great, the gym was great, the food was great. My family and i had a real good time at this hotel and everything fun is couple minutes away. I will do it again soon. My daughter forgot her G-Shack watch and the next day i called and house keeping already had it at the front desk for us to pick up, honest people. Love it.

The hotel staff (front desk, shuttle drivers, manager) make staying at this hotel worth it. They are super nice and go above and beyond to make your stay as good as possible.
The rooms aren't the nicest or cleanest; but the friendly staff makes up for it. The rooms need renovating and the carpet is gross; but here are the good parts about the rooms: The beds are comfortable. The showers have good water pressure. The closets are big and have 2 luggage racks. The rooms are a nice size.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JOHNSPG Convenient locations and nice staff, but...
If you are flying in or out of Providence, this hotel is in a very convenient location - close to the airport with easy access to I-95 and downtown. The staff is very nice and helpful and they have a nice fitness facility.
But, the rooms are a bit dated, worn out, and not up to average SPG standards. Food in the restaurant is quite mediocre. If you do eat there, don't bother ordering a salad: I've tried three and always gotten wilted, warm lettuce that didn't look fresh even though the price was quite high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by pharmgrl Nice surprise
Checked-in around 6pm and extremely tired from driving up from NJ. Was upgraded to club level but we had to meet family for dinner at 6:30. Room was as expected, clean and quiet. Only thing I didn't like was the toilet; it had like a gray unsightly stain in the bowl. The manager at check-in is very sweet (don't remember her name but she's from California) and they had lemon water and fruit at check-in; very refreshing. The next a.m. we had breakfast and it was pretty good. Thanks for the upgrade.

Just wanted to say Tracy did a nice job at the club lounge while Alex was out. We all missed Alex but Tracy was attentive, funny and the guests seemed to really enjoy her company. Hope to see her around in the future

Rated 1 out of 5 by Campos64 I will not stay here again!!!!!!
I am an out of town businessman, who owns his own business, and travels at least 1 week of every month to RI. I've stayed at many of the other hotels in the area, based on special offers, but this hotel was one of the worst. My list of problems during my 1 week stay: TV channels did not work during the whole week, instead of having FOX news channel in the room, it was replaced with R TV, the Russian channel, however, FOX news does play in the lobby, on Tuesday, the maid never cleaned my room, my breakfast in the dining room, included toast that was as hard as a rock, the ice maker on the third floor does not work, just provides watery ice or none at all, the room door has a large space around the edge that you can see thru, to the hallway. This hotel, by no way, provides the comfort of home!!!!!

1, check in was okay. i never heard or never had the experience that spg guests (whom own time share 2 bedroom) are not allowed to use Club Lounge unless you pay 30.00. I have never heard of this and if you go onto to spg. com it does not say that. Alex in club lounge is the best, very professional and personable. Thanks Alex The bay was awesome!!!!The outside pool area should be kept up nicer so people can sit out there and enjoy the sun/shade it was dirty, no umbrellas and not relaxing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Princesa0214 This hotel has EXCELLENT features
I reserved at the Shearaton Providence Airport hotel somewhat skeptical, not knowing what to expect of the hotel facilities or surroundings. To my great surprise, the hotel is spectacular, the room was amazing, the staff was kind and helpful The frontdesk representative was able to prioritize in getting my room ready while she recommended an excellent restaurant for late lunch. All in all it was an unforgettable experience and I will return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Segh13 Hotel and staff need work
Older hotel right next to Providence airport. The hotel staff wasn't equipped to handle large crowds (a wedding party, a British sports team and regular guests like myself). Staff were barely able to get me into a room at check-in (3pm), which was extremely important because I had an event to go to in Foxboro. When I got to my toom, not only was the door opened but the room wasn't ready (no towels). Room also had an odor.

Five weeks into a three month stay the ENTIRE staff has been more than accommodating. From the very first meeting with Lisa, Director of Sales, to the daily interaction in the club lounge with Alex and the rest of the attendants, my stay has certainly been a comfortable one to say the least. I look forward to finishing out my stay and returning again in the near future.
Aside form the staff, another perk was being in such close proximity to the airport (property abuts) and not having any of the plane sounds in the room. Absolutely no noise even when I am looking at the runway from my window..
I have stayed in 8 other properties in the local area and this one is at the top of the list of places I will stay in the future.
This property was a pleasant surprise for me. Appreciate the effort and thanks for hospitality.

I was looking forward to staying at the Sheraton Providence Hotel. my husband and I had a great experience when we stayed for our honeymoon. When I arrived at the hotel, I had my reservation number, but they had no record of me in the computer. They were able to get a room, but we should have looked elsewhere. The other occupants in the hotel were loud and rude. Kids were running up and down the halls, laughing and shouting. If that was not enough, their parents were also loud and walking around with beers in their hand. This continued past 11 pm. We did not sleep well and had an early flight the next day. We did complain twice to the people in charge, but it wasn't until 11 pm that something was finally done. My children were frightened to fall asleep by then because they thought these people were going to come into the room. Poor service!

I purchase a AAA club rate, but was still roomed in the basement and had to bring the club status to the clerk's attention.
The fire alarm rang and we all evacuated, but no one from management spoke to anyone to update us. At 3am we got a note under the door.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MattD Right room for the price - good value
Good location and fitness center. Clean, comfortable rooms. And usually good rates.
We stayed here while touring the mansions in Newport. It's about a half hour away across the bridge, and a little bit out of Providence proper. There's a good Bertuccis right next door.
SPG recognition took a reminder for each thing (coding keys for club access, internet, etc), but there was no push-back. Staff was friendly at all levels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by atui170 Worst starwood experience
I stay in hotels across the US every week for business. This hotel was, by far and above, the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. It smelled, the rooms were just dirty (I didn't even feel clean taking off my shoes!), the front desk staff was unaccomodating and rude and far understaffed. I've stayed at hole-in-the-wall motels that had been service and cleanliness than this. It is in desparate need of a renovation.

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend getaway (we live in CT). We're pleasantly surprised by the hospitality and helpfulness of the staff - in particular the front desk people who gave us excellent recommendations on local dining and entertainment options. The room is spacious and clean. Housekeeping staff are nice and polite. We're impressed and are considering coming back in near future.
