The Hotel Providence

Provident property: The Hotel Providence

This Rhode Island city once again is abuzz with construction in and around the historic buildings that were presciently preserved during Providence’s renaissance over the past quarter century. Counting the 80 rooms at The Hotel Providence, a boutique of understated elegance that opened last year, the number of guest rooms within walking distance of the Rhode Island Convention Center will increase more than 20 percent by the end of 2008.
    The convention center itself is being reinvented. Construction to connect it to the neighboring Dunkin’ Donuts Center will start next month.
    Also underway are at least five new condominium buildings rising across the city.
