Procaccianti Group proposes extended-stay hotel for downtown Providence, R.I.

A vacant building in downtown Providence, R.I., may soon become an extended-stay hotel. The Procaccianti Group is expected to announce plans for the 170-room project, right across the street from the Rhode Island Convention Center and the Dunkin’ Donuts Center, reports the Providence Journal.

Paul Sacco, CDO for PGI Hospitality, said the project “represents a $40-million private investment in Providence.”

If the hotel comes to fruition, it will reportedly be the city’s first hotel since the Dean, a 65-room hotel, which opened earlier this year, the Journal reports.
