A fun place for the fit and hip

Pros: Staff, location, unique decor and support of local artists.
Cons: When the elevator is working it will be great.
Location: Right in downtown Providence, walking distance from Trinity Rep, bars, cafes, shops and restaurants. A longer but reasonable walk to RISD.
I reserved a one-night stay at The Dean because I was curious. I looked like a nice change from the chain hotels and it did not disappoint in that respect. It is a genuine one-of-a-kind boutique hotel with a great vibe and a real commitment to local artists and producers. Although my stay did not allow time for sampling any of their eateries, they seemed to be attracting plenty of customers. The hotel's antique elevator is currently unavailable as its entire motor is out for repair. No one seems to know how much longer it will take, but it's been a month already. That said, they offered to carry my bags up to my room and offered me a "killer" room on the 4th floor or a modest upgrade on the 2nd. I took the lower floor and carried my own. The room was clean and crisp. The furnishings are interesting and well-designed. But this is NOT a place for big people. I am reasonably trim and I "fit" but a larger (wider) person would have been cramped for sure, especially in the tiny bathroom. (Well-designed but there is only so much you can do with a tiny space.) The staff was polite, friendly, professional and accommodating. One could not ask for more. I would return, but will check to make sure the lift is operational and then will request an upper floor for that killer view.
