Omni Providence Hotel
For a relaxing sleep, visit this luxurious hotel in your Warwick rental car. Formerly the Westin Providence, The Omni Providence Hotel is a Neo-Traditionalist skyscraper in downtown Providence. Standing at 328 feet, it became the fourth-tallest building in the city and the state on 15 February 2007.

A recent addition of a new tower, the Omni Hotel now has more than 500 rooms and remains the tallest and largest hotel in the city. The hotel is conveniently connected to the Providence Place shopping mall by the Providence Skybridge, making this a nice place to stay if you want to explore nearby shops and restaurants.

Built in 1928 by Rapp and Rapp, this theater was registered a Historic Place by the National Register in 1977 — known as Loew's State Theatre.

Roger Williams National Memorial
For some fresh air, visit the Roger Williams National Memorial in your Thrifty rental car. This four and a half-acre park is located near the east side of the Moshassuck River and is situated at the base of College Hill. Part of the National Historic Landmark District, the park is also the city's oldest and most historically significant area. The memorial features an open grassy area ringed by trees on the southern portion, while the northern portion is more landscaped.

There is a visitor center housed in the Antram-Gray House at the northeast corner and a parking area on the west side. Several of the memorial’s most interesting areas include the Bernon Grove in the northern section and the site of the spring, which prompted Roger Williams to select the site.
