Omni Hotels & Resorts Completes Acquisition and Rebranding
of the Former Westin Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island

IRVING, Texas--January 15, 2013--Omni Hotels & Resorts announces the acquisition of The Westin Hotel in Providence, R.I. The hotel has been rebranded today as the Omni Providence Hotel and is managed by Omni Hotels Management Corporation. Omni Hotels & Resorts acquired the hotel from The Procaccianti Group (TPG) in late 2012.

Located in historic downtown Providence, the 564-room hotel will be part of Omni’s expanding Convention Collection of hotels. The nearly 700,000-square-foot mixed-use development is connected to the Rhode Island Convention Center and the Providence Place Mall. The development includes three food and beverage outlets, including a Fleming’s Steak House.

“We are pleased to add this premier property to our Convention Collection hotel portfolio and enhance our offerings along the Eastern seaboard,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. “We look forward to working with the city and CVB, and serving as a leader in the marketplace for years to come.”

This acquisition aligns with Omni’s growth strategy for its Convention Collection. This distinct portfolio includes the Omni Nashville Hotel, set to open in 2013, the Omni Dallas Hotel, the Omni Fort Worth Hotel, the Omni San Diego Hotel, the Omni Hotel at CNN Center in Atlanta and the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The property will undergo renovations later this year to reflect the local flavor of Providence, with a special focus on the arrival experience, meetings space and guest rooms. Josh Heidenreich, the former general manager of the Omni New Haven Hotel in Connecticut, is relocating to Providence, as the new general manager of the hotel.
