New Williams Inn to Open in 2019
Olympia Hotel Management has announced that it has assumed management of The Williams Inn in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The property is owned by Williams College, one of the country’s top-rated liberal arts colleges. Williams College is Olympia Hotel Management’s newest client in a growing portfolio of campus hospitality properties. Olympia is also engaged to support development of a new Inn for the college and will manage that property once it is open.
“We are excited to have a strong partner for this project,” said Fred Puddester, Vice President for Finance & Administration and Treasurer at Williams College. “Olympia will bring the new Inn to life and operate it as not only a hotel, but as a community space.”
The new 64-room hotel, which is currently in the design development phase, will be reflective of the architecture of New England farms. Built of stone and wood, the new Williams Inn is meant to evoke a farmhouse, while the restaurant and bar will be housed in a barn-like structure, offering a true sense of place in the northern Berkshires. Cambridge Seven Associates are the architects for the project, with interior design by Bill Rooney Studio.
