Dominick Ranieri Architect, Glen & Co. renovate historic Adelphi Hotel

Historic Adelphi Hotel enters final phase of renovation; eyes 2017 opening.

Adelphi Hospitality Group entered the final phase of renovations of The Adelphi Hotel, its namesake hotel in Saratoga Springs, New York. Dominick Ranieri Architect P.C. of Schenectady, New York is the architect on the 19th-century building’s transformation, while New York-based Glen & Co. is revamping the 32-room hotel’s interiors. The property, which was originally built in 1877 and is the last surviving hotel of Saratoga’s Golden Age, is slated to reopen next spring.

Crews have already replaced deteriorated columns, installed load-bearing steel beams, and poured concrete to replace uneven wood floors that had worn out over the years.The building’s updated exterior—including courtyard areas designed by Ranieri—will have influences of the Victorian era, complete with stone patios, fountains and landscaped garden walls. The front of the hotel will be updated with a streamlined look. French doors will open to a patio and a 1,200-square-foot glass-walled conservatory that overlooks the property’s courtyard and gardens. The interiors will be finished as part of the project’s final phase.

Glen & Co. is redesigning the guestrooms and public spaces, including the lobby bar, restaurant, second-floor piazza and conservatory café. The property’s 11-foot ceilings and grand staircase in the lobby are also being restored. Existing furnishings were removed, photographed and catalogued, and some will be returned to their original place following the renovation.
