Paolino Properties has announced the grand opening of the Beatrice, a new 47-room boutique hotel located in the bustling historic district of downtown Providence, Rhode Island. Situated in the iconic 1887 Exchange Building, the Beatrice is the first boutique hotel to open in Providence in nearly a decade, as well as the debut of Bellini restaurant by Ignazio Cipriani and a private rooftop club for members and hotel guests.
“As a former mayor of this great city, I’ve been a champion of Providence for my entire career. It’s been my passion to create projects that enhance the city and welcome community members and travelers. The opening of the Beatrice marks a new chapter for our hospitality scene,” says Joseph R. Paolino, Jr., managing partner of Paolino Properties.
Beatrice Temkin, Paolino’s mother and the namesake of the property, was a life-long Rhode Island resident, community leader and philanthropist. The design of the hotel is inspired by her modern, elegant style. Designed by ZDS Architecture & Interiors, the hotel boasts a contemporary design that pays tribute to the 19th-century building’s storied past.
