The Adelphi Hotel in Saratoga Is Once Again a Victorian Gem

For my recent road trip article for Chevrolet's New Roads Magazine on Revolutionary War sites, I spent a night in Saratoga and was fortunate to stay at the recently renovated Adelphi Hotel. Growing up in upstate New York, I spent many weekends in Saratoga dancing at the Rafters, seeing concerts at SPAC, and going to the track. It's a wonderful spot for a weekend retreat, especially now that the Adelphi Hotel has returned to its circa-1877 roots after a 5-year renovation. Walk into the lobby and you can't help but be impressed with the Victorian era grandeur. The lobby bar, Morrissey's, was busy, even on a Monday night and the restaurant, Blue Hen, is housed under a glass conservatory. But it's the spacious rooms that are really impressive, replete with freestanding tubs, heated floor tiles and towel racks, and sumptuous beds. After a good night's sleep, wake up in the morning and stroll to Sweet Mimi's, owned by friends. You can't go wrong with the lemon ricotta or toasted coconut pancakes.
