Experience: The Dean Hotel
Every time our country comes out of a recession working class cities embrace a renaissance. Local artists and rising stars transform these cities into cultural mainstays; we saw it in Richmond, Alpine, and now Providence. The Dean Hotel in Providence seems to be at the forefront of this New England capital's rise to a cultural center.
The Dean Hotel is the epitome of a hip boutique hotel; Le Labo candles, neon signs lighting the hallways, a vintage elevator system, greenery in modern white pots.... the in-room amenities include boxed water, small batch tonic, and Harry's shave kits and the bathroom is decked out in Waterwork brass furnishings, black tiles, and soft white linens.
Located in the heart of the city, The Dean Hotel is walking distance to the largest mall in the region, the convention center, hockey stadium, local shops, public transportation, and a slew of other amenities that make it the perfect mainstay for your visit. Or, if you're more into the "never want to step outside" route, The Dean has a coffee shop (Bolt Coffee Co. - we recommend the passion fruit or the earl grey donuts!), Restaurant (Faust), bumping Karaoke Bar (The Boombox) and a speakeasy bar called the Magdalanea Room - perfect for an intimate cocktail with your lover of choice.
