Providence Biltmore was built in 1922, during a period when lush, ornate style ruled the day. The property was designed by Warren and Wetmore, the same architectural team that created New York City’s famed Grand Central Station. Upon entering the hotel's lobby you are treated to the stunning architectural details authentic to its original era. There is a grand staircase, a striking double balcony overlooking the lobby and high, detailed ceilings. Dark woods, fine furnishings and warm lighting help maintain the original style of the building's interior. Meticulous historic preservation and contemporary touches keep the hotel's design style from looking worn. While the hotel's lobby and hallways maintain the old-world charm of the Roaring Twenties, the guestrooms are chic and sophisticated, updated to totally modern standards and style.
