Chain hotel with updates that help give it an edge over boring
After undergoing some renovations, Sheraton Providence Airport is a bit more hip than it used to be. The new lobby, Link@Sheraton, is decorated with lots of interesting woodwork, leather seating, and lots of yellows and browns. Guests can use the computer stations with free internet access, or just sit in one of comfy lounge chairs.
The restaurant and lounge, Bluefire, is also showing signs of the modern age with plenty of red hues in the leather furnishings and decor.
The guest rooms have been punched up with dark blues, both on the walls and with the duvet covers. It’s nice departure from typical chain hotel rooms, which are so often covered in that boring beige/white color everywhere you look.
During the week, the hotel is a popular spot for business folks, thanks in part to its location next to the airport. But on the weekends, wedding, reunions and other events take over, filling up the guest rooms and many function rooms.
Located next to the airport, a short distance from downtown
A mere quarter of a mile from T.F. Green Airport, Sheraton Providence Airport Hotel is located in Warwick, RI. Nearby, travelers will find the Warwick Mall, and plenty of restaurants along Route 1.
Providence is just a 15-minute drive away, where you'll find plenty of galleries, shops, restaurants, bars, and other sights downtown. Lupo’s Heartbreak Hotel and the Providence Performing Arts Center are a couple of notable spots. Every summer, don’t miss the spectacle of WaterFire -- 100 bonfires are lit just above the surface of the water on the three rivers that pass through downtown.
Contemporary, chain-like rooms with free Wi-Fi
A small step above what you'd expect to find in an airport hotel, the rooms are nicely (though plainly) decorated with a blue-and-beige color palette, wood furnishings, and white linens. There are flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi.
Limited amenities, but the Sheraton Club Lounge offers plenty of perks
Sheraton Providence Airport, located only a quarter mile from T.F. Green, is a convenient option for travelers who need to be by the airport. The guest rooms are comfortable and clean -- important for any business traveler -- and there's free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Bluefire Restaurant and Lounge, and the Link@Sheraton lobby featuring computer stations with free Internet, are nice additions. The on-site fitness center has modern equipment, and the hotel provides free shuttle to nearby spots (including the airport).
