Highly recommended, fantastic front desk (ask for Sam). Great advice on local (no chains) of great eats! Just finished one of three weeks on a project, but really if you need to stay at a Marriott property that would be my first choice.
11.00 on Airport Limo service from PVD to Courtyard first, then to Biltmore, Hilton, two other full service Marriotts.
2nd choice: Renaissance (right by the mall and very easy access to downtown-it is downtown!)
3rd choice: Marriott, behind the capital building.
And if you are ever up in Providence, please visit probably the BEST seafood locale I have ever had-Hemminways!!!!
WOW...great eats, great weather, great location for the Courtyard...SPOT ON MARRIOTT!!!
