Johnson & Wales Inn: "Not what I expected!" Rhode Island Hotel Tip by apbeaches

Rhode Island Hotels: 13 reviews and 12 photos

I was looking forward to staying at the Inn run by students at the largest hospitality/culinary university in the country. The hotel was pleasant, staff/students interesting & professional. We requested a suite with a whirlpool; it was a large sort of ordinary room.

I was expecting a memorable breakfast. We entered Audrey's restaurant after a rush of incoming students & parents prior to their orientation. The fruit, toast, bagels, coffee, juices didn't get replenished. I asked staff twice for coffee & bagels. The kids were pleased but I wasn't impressed; I expected breakfast to be a Wow!

Unique Qualities: I was expecting a Wow, it was pleasant but nothing unique & memorable. I'm sorry we didn't stay in downtown Providence.
