The Residence Inn in Providence (Warwick), Rhode Island was looking to refresh the rooms and common areas of its distributed-campus property in mid-2018 to match its rebrand as Sonesta, and the hotel looked to Triple Crown Construction to get it done on-time, affordably, and in a way that met their exact needs—particularly, a way that would not interrupt the stay of guests during the construction period.
Along with the rebrand, the hotel sought to make its offerings more accessible to a wider clientele, so a major part of the bidding process involved seeking a construction and renovation partner with a track record of ADA compliance work and an understanding of how to make a property accessible, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing all at once. They found that partner in Triple Crown Construction.
Triple Crown upgraded seven guest rooms to meet ADA codes, as well as making changes to common areas to increase accessibility—for example, a new ramp entryway to the pool area and lobby restroom modifications.
96 New Rooms
The soon-to-be-Sonesta was composed of numerous buildings containing eight guest rooms apiece, and it was Triple Crown Construction’s job to make each one feel brand new. That meant a thorough refresh that entailed new fixtures and furniture, carpets, paint jobs, tub surrounds, vinyl wallcovering, and more. From removing the old materials and disposing of them to installing and putting the finishing, expert touches on the new ones, Triple Crown managed the entire process, always keeping the property executives informed at each step of the way.
