NEW: Providence’s Dean Hotel Featured in Surface Magazine

Tuesday, April 15, 2014


New Providence boutique hotel, the Dean has been featured in the April 2014 edition of Surface Magazine.

The feature recognizes the accomplishments of the development and design firm ASH NYC, and the restoration work by Kite Architects for turning what was once a "flophouse and strip club" into an "affordable, tastefully designed hotel."

The Dean, which opened its doors this spring, is a 52-room hotel located in Downtown Providence on Fountain Street. In addition to the hotel, the site includes a German-style beer hall, a karaoke lounge, an artisanal coffee shop, and an intimate cocktail lounge.

Private tour and dinner

In honor of the recognition, the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA) Rhode Island will be hosting a private tour and dinner at the hotel on April 16th. The event will also feature a presentations by Owner and developer Ari Heckman of ASH NYC, and New York-based brand leader William Watson, who will discuss their brand approach – encompassing bold visuals, witty advertising, and the meeting of historic architecture, comfort, local experiences, and the hip.

The private tour is available for 10 exclusive spots, which will allow participants to talk first-hand with Heckman and Watson at an intimate dinner at newly-opened The Faust restaurant. The private tour and dinner includes admission to the presentation.
