After being closed for more than 16 months due to historic flooding, the NYLO Providence/Warwick hotel in Warwick, R.I., has officially re-opened, NYLO Hotels announced this month.
The hotel opened in September 2008 and closed less than two years later in March 2010, when heavy spring rains caused the Pawtuxet River to overflow its banks, sending over four feet of water into the hotel's first floor, all of which — including the front desk, lobby, lounge, bar, restaurant and meeting rooms — has since been replaced, having been ruined by the flood.
"We are thrilled to be able to officially announce our grand re-opening," said NYLO Hotels CEO Michael Mueller. "We're happy to officially put the flood behind us and we look forward to welcoming back our business and leisure travelers, community partners and local neighbors, and once again providing them with Rhode Island's most stylish and affordable accommodations and meetings destination."
The loft-style hotel, which has 163 guest rooms and 1,166 square feet of meeting space, also has hired an entirely new management team.
"This is an exciting time for us as we renew our presence in the marketplace," said NYLO Hotels' Executive Vice President Patrick O'Neil. "We have a strong team of hospitality professionals ready to get back to work and surpass our guests' expectations for high style at an affordable price that is fun and memorable. We're asking travelers to stay unique and book with us when coming to the Warwick/Providence area. We're no ordinary hotel, offering an eclectic vibe that's original with high-end extras and tech-friendly business lodging that's sociable and fun."
The NYLO Providence/Warwick officially re-opened on Aug. 15. For more information, visit www.nylohotels.com/warwick.
