The Adelphi Hotel
Exterior view of the Adephi Hotel which overlooks Broadway in downtown Saratoga Springs.
Sheila Parkert, owner of the Adephi Hotel, stands at the hotel's front counter.
The front lobby of the Adelphi, with its Victorian theme, attracts visitors throughout the day, not just hotel guests.
Wall stencils and period-styled lighting decorate the lounge area.
The grand staircase leading up to the guest rooms greets visitors to the hotel.
Adelphi Hotel owner Sheila Parkert sits in the hotel’s upstairs lounge area, which leads directly to its piazza. She and her late husband bought the then-dilapidated property in 1979, first renovating the bar that funded the refurbishing of the guest rooms.
Parkert stands at the Adelphi’s second-story piazza, a large upstairs porch that overlooks Broadway.
A typical Saratoga Trunk sits in one of the hallways at the Adelphi Hotel.
A typical guest room at the Adelphi includes a bedroom and sitting room.
For 13 years, friends, from left, Mary Grande, Patty Nestola and Julie Derkatch have made an annual summer trek from Long Island to Saratoga Springs to stay at the Adelphi Hotel and to visit the Saratoga Race Course. Here, after arriving for their 2008 visit, they relax in the hotel’s outdoor courtyard.
