The Radison was listed as a possible 3* match on Hotwire, and the list of amenties listed (shuttle, fitness center, pool, hi speed, breakfast) are also at the Radisson. Call it power of suggestion. :) In any case, add the Wingate to the list. :)
Amenities listed: Airport Shuttle Complimentary Breakfast Fitness Center Pool Hi Speed Internet Access. $70/night for 3 nights, 1/26/07 - 1/29/07. 1 room(s) @ $70.00 per night x 3 night(s) => $210.00 Taxes/fees => $29.64 Total => $239.64 I thought this would be the Radisson, but was surprised to get a hotel that I haven't seen mentioned on here at all yet: the Wingate Inn Coventry (http://www.winewengland.com/) Cheapest rate on the website was $84/night prepaid, so this wasn't the best deal but the hotel appears to have all the items that I need for this trip.
After bidding $80, $85, & $87, my $90 bid for a 4* hotel in downtown Providence was accepted by the Westin. We will be staying there from 9/8-9/11. Hotwire had what I believe was the same hotel for $117/night so I think I saved a few bucks, and the location looks to be fabulous.
