Paolino Properties has announced the upcoming opening of The Beatrice - a new boutique hotel located in Downtown Providence's bustling historic district, scheduled to open in late summer 2021. Set in the 1887 Exchange Building, the 47-room hotel will introduce a destination for sophisticated travelers within steps of the city's celebrated attractions, along with a world-class culinary hotspot with the debut of Ignazio Cipriani's first Bellini Restaurant and private rooftop Club in the New England region.
Developed by Joseph R. Paolino, Jr., Managing Partner of Paolino Properties and former Mayor of Providence, The Beatrice is inspired by his mother and lifelong Rhode Island resident, community leader, and philanthropist, Beatrice Temkin. Beatrice was known for her quick wit and attention to detail. As you walk through the hotel corridor and rooms, Beatrice's impeccable taste is hard to miss for those who knew her well. Even for perfect strangers, The Beatrice is built to feel like home (if only your home was outfitted with Mascioni sheets and a world-renowned restaurant downstairs).
Designed by ZDS Architecture & Interiors, The Beatrice's timeless interior showcases the rich character of the property's 19th century bones, complemented by sophisticated décor and tasteful accents. An eye-catching atrium centered around a grand chandelier welcomes guests when they arrive, flooding the lobby with natural light, contrasted by brick stone accents and warm neutral tones.
Accommodations provide a stylish city retreat for guests to truly unwind and relax. Rooms and suites range in size from 300-sq.ft. to 805-sq.ft. and are outfitted with deluxe amenities including Mascioni linens and towels crafted in Milan, Dyson hair dryers, organic BeeKind personal care amenities, heated towel racks, Nespresso coffee makers, and more.
The hotel features the latest innovations for guests' comfort including contactless check-in, keyless entry and on-demand text request concierge service. The hotel is also equipped with enhanced health and safety measures and offers services for guests including complimentary onsite COVID-19 rapid testing.
