Located in the heart of historic downtown Providence, The Dean is a 52‐room hotel housed in an early 20th century brick building that has been thoughtfully restored by Brooklyn‐based owner and designer ASH NYC. This picturesque 5-story hotel sits in the center of a vibrant culinary and cultural scene, and is located just a few blocks from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design. The property features unique interiors that give a fresh take on comfort and simplicity, while retaining many of the building’s handsome original features, including its mosaic tile flooring and brick façade.
