The historic Adelphi Hotel in Saratoga Springs is set to open in late summer, early fall of 2017. Often called a masterpiece of functionality, the Adelphi has welcomed guests since 1877. The restoration of the hotel has reportedly been a labor of love with a focus on maintaining the character of the structure--which is something the project has in common with many historic church renovations. One of the most impressive aspects of the hotel is reportedly its 200-year-old spiral staircase that runs through the structure's all four floors.

The project took eight months and was led by David Bennett of Bennett Stair Co. Inc. in Ballston Lake, N.Y., spearheaded the restoration with an eye on managing preservation of the hotel's original craftsmanship.
