“We are thrilled to promote Helen Watson to general manager here at The Adelphi Hotel,” Larry Roth, co-owner of Adelphi Hospitality Group, said in a statement. “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 sure Watson will uphold the hotel’s treasured values and relationships with our culturally vibrant community.”

Originally built in 1877, The Adelphi Hotel is a modern reimagining of a classic Victorian building, and recently completed a five-year renovation. The property is a cultural icon in Saratoga Springs, an upstate New York town known for its historic Victorian architecture, arts community, horse racing and more.
