Construction of a new Residence Inn by Marriott is nearing completion, with an anticipated opening in the fall of 2020. The new hotel is adjacent to the Lincoln Mall off route Route 116 near the Route 146 interchange. Owners of the property, Brandt Hospitality Group, teamed with Icon Architecture, DiPrete Engineering, Mancini Carter P.C., and Pare Corporation to design and construct the hotel.
Prior to building the new Residence Inn, the town only had one operating hotel. The new 80,000 square foot, four-story building includes 107 rooms and sits on 8.8-acres. The hotel offers studio, as well as one- and two-bedroom suites which have separate living and sleeping areas. It also includes a business center, market, fitness center, indoor pool, barbecue area, and firepit.
“The new Residence Inn provides an extended-stay model for both business and leisure travelers, as well as has proximity to major businesses with easy highway access,” said Jared Schillinger, Vice President of Business Development for Brandt Hospitality Group. “It is also located near a number of colleges in the area, business demand such as Amica & CVS, as well as leisure components which include Twin River Casino, Gillette Stadium, Patriot Place, and Xfinity Center.”
Traffic traveling to the new hotel will be directed through the existing Sunoco/Courtyard entrance from Route 116. There is also a secondary driveway connection to an existing intersection along Lincoln Mall roadway for vehicles leaving the property.
DiPrete Engineering provided the site’s engineering and received permits from the Town of Lincoln, RI Department of Environmental Management, Narragansett Bay Commission, and RI Department of Transportation.
