Construction on a new hotel in downtown Providence is underway.

A groundbreaking ceremoney was held Thursday morning for the $30 million Homewood Suites by Hilton.

The 120-room hotel will sit on a triangular plot of land on Exchange Street.

The project is a collaboration of First Bristol Corp. and Paolino Properties. They said it will create hundreds of permanent and construction jobs.
