Formerly the Providence Biltmore hotel, Graduate Providence is located in the center of downtown, close to the campuses of Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence College, Johnson & Wales University and Rhode Island College. A local landmark, the hotel is bursting with old-school charm. Throughout, layers of plaid, tweed and leather provide a healthy dose of post-grad bachelor pad. Mix in some laughs from locals and alums (there’s something about those Farrelly brothers) and you get a hotel with as much humor as history.
