Local officials, business people and members of the Adelphi Hospitality Group gathered in front of the Adelphi Hotel on Oct. 19 to formally open the historic hotel at a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Prior to the cutting of the ribbon, Mayor Joanne Yepsen; Samantha Bosshart, executive director of Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation; Toby Milde, a partner with Adelphi Hospitality Group; addressed the crowd that gathered for the event.
Yepsen noted the importance of keeping the history of the building and the city in mind during the renovation process. It was important, she said, to be patient during the process as all its pieces came together.
The new hotel will be an important factor in both tourism and economic development efforts in the city, she said.
The Adelphi, at 365 Broadway, has 32 rooms, suites, and grand common spaces. The first floor houses Morrisey’s, the hotel bar, and the Blue Hen, the hotel restaurant.
