Providence Biltmore Hotel Review

: This grand hotel is rich in cultural history. Designed by the architects responsible for Grand Central Station, it was glamorous from the day it opened in 1922. Over the years it has seen its dance floor transformed into an aquarium for Esther Williams and frozen over for Sonia Henie’s ice show. Today, it continues to wow guests, most recently with a $10-million-dollar upgrade. At the turn of the millennium, 44 key access Club Floor Rooms, including a Presidential Suite, were added to the third and fourth floors. These accommodations feature original artwork, French doors and their own doorbells. Over half of the standard rooms measure in at an average of 600 square-feet. D├ęcor is traditional, in a style often associated with classic upscale hotels---pale striped wallpaper, lots of potted palms, dark wood furnishings and richly colored fabrics. To get a feel for the hotel’s past, check out the beautiful Grand Ballroom. The onsite Starbucks is commendable, as well, with its deco fireplace and pressed metal ceiling.
