Providence Biltmore joins Curio collection

Iconic landmark hotel, the Providence Biltmore, today joined Curio - A Collection by Hilton.

Home to the city’s largest spa, the Biltmore boasts an eclectic array of cross-cultural therapies including massage, facials, hair styling and nail treatment at The Spa.

Located in the heart of downtown Providence, the historic hotel was built in 1922 by Warren and Wetmore, the same architects behind New York City’s Grand Central Station.

The stately building opened its doors with widespread acclaim and today is deeply woven into the city’s fabric and culture, beloved by generations of guests.

“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 - A Collection by Hilton.


“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 is the most architecturally significant hotel in Providence.

The iconic hotel offers 294 guestrooms and suites, all with cityscape views provided by the building’s striking v-shaped design.

Recently renovated in 2014, rooms boast sophisticated design and modern amenities that maintain the timeless elegance of the Biltmore.

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, creating a fresh look while paying great respect to the essence of the historic hotel.

Dining options include McCormick & Schmick’s Seafood & Steaks as well as one of the largest Starbucks in America.
