The Omni Providence Hotel is the host hotel for PhysCon 2019 and is connected to the Rhode Island Convention Center. The Omni Providence Hotel is situated about 15-20 minutes from the airport and a 10-minute walk from the Providence Amtrak Station. PhysCon kicks off with tour sites on Thursday morning and concludes Saturday night, so expect to stay 3-4 nights.
SPS has negotiated special room rates at the Omni Providence Hotel especially for PhysCon 2019. Hotel accommodations are not part of the Congress registration fee and you must make your reservations separately. Sleeping rooms at past PhysCon hotels have filled up very quickly—we recommend that you make your reservation at the Omni Providence Hotel well in advance of the deadline. Otherwise, you may have to stay at another hotel in the area.
