Ken's place is a very spacious, open-layout loft. The area is somewhat hip commercial/industrial, with a few restaurants within walking distance (Olga's Cup and Saucer great for breakfast) and not far at all from downtown. We were visiting our daughter at PC, which is about a 7-8 minute drive. There are no bedrooms per se, but more like 3 sleeping areas with long curtains for privacy. Would have rated a 5, but the 2 queen pullouts are not as comfortable (as expected) as the king bed, and for a larger group, the 1 bathroom can be challenging. Overall, a good value, especially if you're looking for something different in a somewhat quieter, non-residential neighborhood.

My friends/family had a great stay at Ken and Kathy's place! The artist loft has so many beautiful feature like a fireplace, pool table, balcony and amazing bathroom. Was a quick walk to most of what Providence has to offer. I'd love to visit again when we come back to town.

The Artist Loft was great. Very interesting space and decor. Comfortable to relax and sleep in, yet very functional with a kitchen, laundry, and bathroom. I would stay here again.

The decor and interiors design are accurate as per the images. This huge box is fully equipped with modern amenities. This wonderful industrial loft is located in an obscure location of town. It has many large windows that overlook into parking garage. It is intimidating at night, specially if you are just a couple staying. Surrounded by parking garage and freeway. And ongoing construction next to this box added the industrial ambiance. Great attempt to convert a warehouse into a living space. Wish it was located in a better neighborhood.

Response from Ken:
Vijay, I am sorry you felt insecure. Perhaps you were not aware that the neighboring hospital and garage have 24 hour roving security and the property and immediate surrounding area are quite safe. As to noise, the garage is closed to vehicle entry at night so I am not sure what "strange noises" you heard and we will look into it. No one of over 100 guests have ever mentioned that. The "freeway" you mention is below grade and far enough away to dampen any noise, especially at night. It certainly makes for easy access. You imply that the view is only of a parking garage. While it is true that one side with very adequate curtains does face the garage the other sides face streets, trees and buildings including an old stone historic horse "stable" that is now Brown University's fundraising headquarters. The Jewelry District is a vibrant mixed use area that perhaps might be too urban for some travellers and I apologize if it was not residential enough. Ken

Ken's place is great. The loft is spacious and has everything that you need. We stayed with our 2 kids and there was plenty of room for everyone. The pool table was a big hit. Great location and an overall really good experience!

The artists loft is a wonderful, open space. Clean and well-equipped. I most liked how easy it was to walk to so many amazing restaurants and to other parts of the city. Having close, on site parking was another bonus. Highly recommend!
