The historic Adelphi Hotel reopened on Oct. 1 after a five-year extensive renovation, both interior and exterior.
The Adelphi Hospitality Group (AHG), which owns the hotel, said the facility “honors the distinct style and simple elegance of Saratoga Springs, while delivering a vivid, modern re-imagining of classic Victorian luxury.”
The hotel originally opened in 1877 and is the last surviving hotel of Saratoga’s Golden Age.
The Adelphi Hospitality Group collaborated with designer and architect Glen Coben of New York-based Glen & Co. to re-do the interiors, focusing on a sophisticated modern Victorian design “that personifies with a modern twist, and eclectic revival of, timeless ideals,” the company said in a statement.
Dominick Ranieri Architect PC of Schenectady, was the architect leading extensive structural transformation and restoration.
“This is more than just a place to stay. It’s a gathering spot for all people who live in, or are visiting, Saratoga Springs,” said Simon Milde, managing partner of Adelphi Hospitality Group. “The Adelphi Hotel dates back to Saratoga Springs’ Victorian age when the town was known as America’s playground for the rich and famous, and we are grateful to be part of such a culturally vibrant community.”
Guests at the 365 Broadway hotel will be welcomed into the commanding structure by 11-foot ceilings and a grand staircase that climbs all four stories and is the heart of the Adelphi’s communal space. It has 32 rooms, suites, and grand common spaces.
Located on the main floor is the revival of the Adelphi’s hotel bar and social hub Morrisey’s, named after John Morrissey, one of Saratoga’s most famous residents who was a heavyweight boxer, congressman and co-founder of Saratoga’s race track.
Local beer, craft cocktails, and a list of fine wine are offered, along with an array of small plates, shareable dishes and a wide selection of options from the raw bar.
The Blue Hen, a 1,200-square-foot glass-walled conservatory housing, is the Adelphi’s new restaurant, offering a creative twist on classic dishes. Helmed by Executive Chef Braden Reardon, the locally-inspired eatery uses non-GMO ingredients from nearby farmers and will offer guests an artisan-market style experience with creatively delicious dining options for breakfast and dinner, hotel officials said.
The new 2,300-square-foot grand ballroom can accommodate up to 250 guests, when combined with The Blue Hen, for private meetings, conventions or weddings. The venue opens up to the Adelphi Gardens, a gathering spot for people to gather for a drink surrounded by the greenery of the serene landscaped gardens.
The original hotel featured approximately 74 rooms when it was built in the late 1800s. The previous owners modified the hotel to just over 40 rooms. Now guests will be able to retreat to one of 32 luxurious and oversized guest rooms and suites such as the Owner’s Box, a spacious suite combining the ultimate in luxury and design, featuring two master bedrooms, two living rooms and a 400-square-foot library.
The Owner’s Box suite also features an expansive 500-square-foot terrace offering a view of downtown Saratoga Springs. All rooms at feature hardwood floors, custom designed furnishings, selected pieces from the Adelphi’s history, radiant heated bathroom floors and more.
