Providence was one of the country’s industrial powerhouses from the 1800s to the 1980s. Responsible for producing a quarter of the country’s production, Rhode Island became known for its jewelry manufacturing. Today, Providence is known as the “Creative Capital” for its educational resources and arts community.
For this renovation, designers were challenged with refreshing the property, while maintaining the original architecture of the building. They were tasked with incorporating both the history and culture of Providence with the Marriott brand. The design was primarily inspired by Providence’s Jewelry District and its location at the mouth of the Providence River. Neutral grays were paired with an array of jewel tones and mixed metal accents. Urban finishes give the space a sophisticated and classy look consistent with the Marriott brand.
