Just Opened Getaways: The Adelphi Hotel

The secret to surviving such a big and exhausting city is to escape it once in a while – swapping tiny apartments and constant noise for some well-earned luxury is absolutely necessary to stay sane.

The Adelphi hotel-Bedroom

Located just over three hours from New York City, The Adelphi Hotel in Saratoga Springs is special for many reasons. After originally opening its doors in 1877 – and closing for a five-year renovation – The Adelphi Hotel is the last surviving hotel of Saratoga’s Golden Age. Honoring its Victorian design while delivering modern luxury, the rooms are hugely spacious, fitted with hard wood floors, custom designed furnishings, and pieces of art from the building’s history. If you want the most grand experience, look no further than the “Owner’s Box” – a stunning suite with two master bedrooms, two living rooms, and a large terrace with views of Downtown Saratoga Springs. Oh, and forget about bringing your e-reader – this suite comes with your very own library.

As Saratago Springs is known for being the horse racing capital of New York State, your stay isn’t complete without a visit to the horse races, but there are many other ways to fill your days. Wander around the farmers markets and parks; pop into the beautiful boutiques or visit the mineral springs – just make sure you’re back at the hotel for dinner…

Yes, you might want to consider staying here longer than just a night or two…
