The Westin Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island, US, has been re-branded as the Omni Providence Hotel following its acquisition by Omni Hotels & Resorts.

Omni Hotels & Resorts acquired the property from The Procaccianti Group in late 2012.

"We are pleased to add this premier property to our Convention Collection hotel portfolio and enhance our offerings along the Eastern seaboard."

The 564-room hotel will be part of Omni’s expanding Convention Collection of hotels. It will be managed by Omni Hotels Management Corporation.

The hotel will be renovated later in 2013 to mirror the local flavour of Providence, with a special focus on the arrival experience, meetings space and guest rooms.

The 700,000ft² mixed-use development includes three food and beverage stores, including a Fleming’s Steak House.

Omni New Haven Hotel former general manager Josh Heidenreich will take over as the new general manager of the hotel.

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

The transaction is in line with the company’s growth strategy for the Convention Collection, whose 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 DC.
