  • Awesome spot, but were is all the Medical Bud's. All that's here is roses, flowers, shrubs, plants, I just don't get it, pretty place, clean, nice grounds, but where is da buds.. :-) WARM my service puppy approves of this review as she just loves to take her dump here..
  • Great way to escape the New England Winter. Bring a lunch and you will feel miles away in the warm weather!
  • Beautiful and amazing. Visit soon. Inexpensive admission price, too.
  • The botanical center is lovely, with a nice variety of flowers and other plants, and a koi pond. Some of the plants were turning yellow, though - it appeared as though they hadn't been watered in a few days.
  • Not the best collection of plants but a good getaway in the winter.

Where to stay in Providence

Most of the guest beds in Providence lie in and around downtown; this is the most convenient area to stay in during your visit. Right downtown you'll find a handful of large hotels from national chains. Rooms here can be pricey, but many offer sweeping views of Providence Harbor. Federal Hill features a few locally owned inns, bed and breakfasts, and small hotels in historical buildings. You'll find additional homey establishments around the State House just north of downtown and the College Hill area across the Providence River to the east. Avoid the South Providence area and East Providence across the Seekonk River.
