As advertised

Reviewed 18 january, 2022

The hotel is packed with detail, creative nuances, quirky quality attributes. Strange (perhaps) to note this - but the hot water is extremely hot ... could do with some dialing back. Elevator is super small, old school "charming" - the stairs are an easy option. Was a little noisy over the weekend. Well situated. Staff are diverse, attentive, friendly and on point.

Do NOT be fooled by the style of the hotel

Reviewed 8 january, 2022

For years I have been wanting to stay at The Dean, even though I am from Providence and my family lives here. My boyfriend was visiting--long distance relationship--and I was so excited to take him here. I chose this experience over having a fully equipped Airbnb with free parking, a kitchen, privacy, and plenty of space for us to hang. The price was the same. The lobby was hip and chic, but the room was disappointing, small, and spare. The TV didn't have netflix or prime--even though most motels do have this nowadays. We could not get around one side of the bed because the room was so small. It was VERY similar to being in a dorm room. In addition, it was extremely noisy during our stay--the nosiest hotel experience I have ever had--drunken people running up and down the halls between 12-3 am. We did not sleep on either night. There is literally zero sound proofing, and you can hear everything going on in the hallway. I was so upset about this experience, but I couldn't even complain about it in front of my boyfriend because I didn't want to embarrass him or make it obvious that I felt his trip had been ruined. Parking is extremely expensive, and there is nothing complimentary offered--not even water. Again, I've had motels offer complimentary water. And usually there is a mini fridge with a kettle or a microwave so you can make a hot beverage yourself. Nothing like that was in the room. I wouldn't stay here unless you want to get drunk and stay up all night. I am pretty sure this hotel is for college students.

Stylized let down

Reviewed 3 january, 2022

We'd been eyeing The Dean for a year! But after trying it- many aspects were lacking. The room was practically empty with only a home-made wooden shelf, two chairs, a bench, a home-made plywood table, and the bed. The bed was very clean, but there was a stain on the rug and the toilet bowl was dirty. Our room was above the bar. The neighbors had sex all night and all morning and we could hear every single breath. All of this was discovered over the three days we stayed - by the time the cumulative effect became unacceptable we decided to just ride it out - we needed the room’s space to host nephews and exchange gifts. The ambiance was juvenile, and spartan at best with harsh lighting. The coffee was good and the barista was very nice. The front desk was very nice. In summary the room, privacy, and cleanliness were huge let-downs. We won’t be returning to the Dean but hope this note helps the hotel keep up with ever increasing competition.

Excellent stay in Providence

Reviewed 29 december, 2021

We had a fabulous stay in this cool and friendly hotel. The Dean has a great location downtown, in easy walking distance to some excellent restaurants and bars. The decor is modern, with antique touches and clean lines. The beds are comfortable and the shower was good too. The room was small but perfectly suited to our needs. Unfortunately the the restaurant and bar were not open during our stay but we hope to return. Providence is a gem of a city.

Nice clean, hotel with minimal vintage aesthetic. great location. great for 1-2 night stay max. room was clean but spartan. the lift is definitely from another era and smelled like pot for most of the morning. not great for a family stay but perfect if you are in town for a show.
