US: Linchris Hotel Corp, a Massachusetts-based hotel management company, has bought the Hotel Providence in Providence, RI, for an undisclosed sum.

The Hotel Providence is an 80-room luxury boutique hotel, originally built in 1882, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Linchris said it plans a new restaurant at the Mathewson Street location in January.

Christopher Gistis, CEO of Linchris, said: "While Hotel Providence has undergone several transitions, we are here for the long-term, bringing financial stability and ensuring the property a successful future."

Newly appointed general manager Kelly Lajoie said: "Hotel Providence is a beautiful hotel located in the heart of the city's vibrant arts and entertainment district. I look forward to joining the Providence community and raising service levels to the high standard befitting the sophisticated clientele that is drawn to the City of Providence and, in particular, this vital neighbourhood."

Lajoie has been with Linchris for over 10 years and has served as GM for hotels throughout New England and southern states.

The restaurant within the hotel will operate temporarily as The Restaurant at Hotel Providence. In late January, restaurateurs Alethia and Massimiliano Mariotta will transform the 96-seat restaurant into a chef-driven European brasserie concept. The Mariottas are the owners of Vinya, a Barcelona Tapas-style restaurant located just three blocks from the hotel.

Founded in 1985, Linchris Hotel Corp. owns and manages 36 hotels.
