Best Hotels in Rhode Island
A stylish, welcoming blend of throwback style and modern features.
Artsy with a fresh retro edge, The Dean feels like stepping back in time to a simpler, stylish era. Distinctive details abound within this updated historic Downcity property (the building itself has formerly housed a church and a strip club), including craft work by local artisans, custom furnishings and a collection of unique European décor. The 52 cozy rooms and suites cover eight categories, all going by clever names like the intimate single-bunk Kin, the full-sized Patron and the two-queen-bed Gang. All accommodations boast a smart blend of vintage and custom furnishings, swanky Matouk linens and original art, as well as free Wi-Fi and signature black bathrooms with bespoke toiletries. There are plenty of opportunities to drink and dine on-site thanks to options like the Faust Hofbrauhaus beer hall, the swanky Magdalenae Room cocktail lounge and the fun and kitschy Boombox karaoke lounge. In the mornings, Bolt Coffee Company is on hand to brew up your caffeinated beverage of choice.
