The-Dean

Who amongst us hasn’t fantasised about the bookish glamour of elite American colleges and dorms characterised in Hollywood films and TV sitcoms? I know for me it’s the functional but homely interiors featured in these narratives that really set off my daydreaming – nestled in a quintessentially American university campus with green and sprawling lawns dotted with historic buildings designed to inspire learning – bliss!

If academic charm is your thing, then you will love the interiors of The Dean, a new boutique hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, home to renowned educational institutions such as Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design.

A 52-room hotel in the heart of the Providence’s Downcity historic district, room categories are named such - The Kin, The Classmates, The Patrons, The Mates, The Gang, The King, The Guardian Suite and The Heights - working their way up from dorm style bunk-beds, to elite connected rooms on the top floor of the hotel.

Each room is filled with custom furniture from the New England area – craftwork from local purveyors, bath products made with native plants and herbs and beds are dressed in luxurious, Massachusetts-based Matouk linens and blankets from Maine’s Brahms Mount. 

Not purely dedicated to academic study – the hotel has a number of stylish bars and eateries – German restaurant Faust’s Hofbrauhaus and hotel bar The Magdalenae Room are designed to keep guests sated and entertained, while local coffee roaster The Bolt has set up shop in the lobby. Here, you will also find Providence’s first and only karaoke lounge, The Boombox!
