NYLO Hotels has cause to celebrate after it reopens NYLO Providence/Warwick on August 15 following more than 12 months of reconstruction to the property’s first floor due to Rhode Island's historic floods in March 2010. The newly restored areas of the loft lifestyle hotel include the front desk, lobby, meeting rooms and The Loft—NYLO’s signature social living area with state-of-the-art business center, library and bar and restaurant.
Stephane Dupoux of Dupoux Design handled both the architecture and design for the renovation and reconstruction.
The NYLO Providence/Warwick was forced to temporarily close it doors after heavy rains soaked Rhode Island for weeks in March 2010, causing the Pawtuxet River in Warwick to crest and dump more than four feet of water into the hotel’s first floor. As a result, the hotel experienced extensive damages to its entire first floor.
Today NYLO Providence/Warwick is back up and running as operations have been fully restored and the hotel has started accepting reservations. The property has also named a new leadership team and is expected to hire 20 new employees.
NYLO Providence/Warwick made its debut in September 2008. The hotel has 163 guestrooms and more than 1,166 square feet of meeting and event space. Each guest loft has 300 square feet of loft-like living space, with 10-foot-plus ceilings, exposed brick walls and floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel also overlooks the Pawtuxet River.
