MCLEAN, Va.—The Providence Biltmore has joined Curio – A Collection by Hilton. The hotel is owned and operated by Finard Properties.
Located in downtown Providence, the historic hotel was built in 1922 by Warren and Wetmore, the same architects behind New York City’s Grand Central Station.
“Historically significant, locally revered, and a leader in authentic hospitality, the Providence Biltmore exemplifies the core values behind our Curio collection,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head, Curio. “Without sacrificing the hotel’s independent approach that has proved successful for nearly a century, Curio will enhance the Providence Biltmore experience for both the hotel owners and guests through the assurance of the Hilton name, and the benefits of our invaluable HHonors loyalty program.”
A member of the Historic Hotels of America program under the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the Providence Biltmore offers 294 guestrooms and suites, all with cityscape views provided by the building’s V-shaped design. The rooms were renovated in 2014, and the final stage of the hotel’s $13 million renovation plan will take place in early 2015 with updates to the three-story atrium lobby and function rooms.
The property features 18,000 square feet of event space, a spa, McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks, and Starbucks.
