Adelphi Hospitality Group Partners with Glen & Company Architecture to Reimagine the Adelphi Hotel

February 7, 2017

The Adelphi Hospitality Group (AHG)’s renovation of the historic Adelphi Hotel in Saratoga Springs is entering its final stages with architectural and interior design firm Glen & Company Architecture revamping the interiors of the famed boutique hotel. By creating a cohesive design narrative that focuses on a custom concept which pays homage to the original Adelphi Hotel and the mission of the Adelphi Hospitality Group, Coben and his team are helping to transform the 19th century building into one of splendor and luxury combined with 21st century modern comforts and amenities.

The Adelphi Hotel, originally built in 1877, represents one of America’s most historic and iconic hotels. The four-story building is currently undergoing a full multimillion-dollar renovation with reopening scheduled for Spring 2017.

Glen & Company Architecture is refurbishing the interiors of the hotel with a nod to the property’s history through its sophisticated redesign of the 32 guest rooms, the hotel’s public spaces including the lobby and its adjacent bar, restaurant, the ballroom and space that can accommodate a wide range of events for up to 250 persons among others. The team incorporated design elements of floriography, which speaks to the robust seasons of upstate New York, a place where many consider the market garden of the state.

Upon entering The Adelphi Hotel, guests will step on plush, custom-designed carpets inspired by symbols of hospitality and incorporating design details including local vegetables. The custom damask wallcovering is inspired by classic Victorian patterns and upgraded with floriography symbols and complements the custom light fixtures throughout the public spaces and guests rooms, which will speak to the fresh ingredients found on the restaurant’s menu.

“The Adelphi Hotel has been open for more than 150 years and has always been a gathering space in Saratoga Springs. It is an honor to be working with the Adelphi Hospitality Group to continue building the legacy of this hotel in Saratoga Springs,” said Coben.

Guests will also appreciate Coben’s team repurposing many of the The Adelphi Hotel’s original furniture pieces which were reupholstered with contemporary touches to create an ambiance of modern Victorian. Guest rooms will include custom-designed canopy beds in several suites. Bathrooms will showcase modern day amenities such as luxurious spa-like showers with rain heads, heated floors, heated towel bars and custom amenities.
