Glen & Company is revamping the interiors of the famed boutique hotel, The Adelphi Hotel, scheduled to reopen in Spring 2017. 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, Glen 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.
"The Adelphi Hospitality Group is excited to work with Glen & Company Architecture to redesign this grand and beautiful hotel," said Simon Mildé, AHG Partner. "Glen is a storyteller and has the ability to bring personality and energy to a space. His work at The Adelphi Hotel will pay homage to the past, while offering an atmosphere that is elegant and welcoming for all guests."
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 perfectly 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. "We are committed to respecting The Adelphi Hotel's historic charm while updating the spaces with a modern luxury look and amenities."
