All you need to know about Providence

The city of Providence is a prime destination for business travel. Located an hour from Boston and three hours from New York City, Providence offers a trendy and vibrant city brimming with business opportunities and corporations. Corporate housing and furnished apartments in Providence offer close proximity to business destinations and provide a home away from home for business travellers.

The area of Providence was settled in 1636. Following the American Revolution, the city was the ninth largest city in the USA with a population of 7,614 people. Between the 1600s and the 1900s, the economy of Providence was predominantly focused on the manufacturing of machinery and tools. Its location and trade routes led to population growth and by the early 1900s, the city was one of the wealthiest in the nation. During the latter half of the 20th century, the city was revitalised and large construction projects went underway to create Alex and Ani City Centre and the Providence Place Mall.

Over the years Providence has steered away from its roots as a manufacturing centre, however, the city is still home to one of the largest centres for jewellery, manufacturing, and silverware design.  Fortune 500 company Textron is located in Providence as well as Citizens Bank and United Natural Foods. The biggest employers of the city are Brown University, Rhode Island Hospital, and Life Span. Corporate housing in Providence situates guests close to these major headquarters and companies, making for the ideal accommodation options for your corporate stay in Providence.
