Saratoga Arms, built in 1870, is a newly
restored, award-winning Second Empire hotel located in the
heart of Saratoga's downtown district.
After overseeing many extensive and some
unexpected renovations, the Smith family reopened the
establishment as a luxury inn in June of 1998. The building
features restored plaster and tin ceilings, two grand
staircases, ornate moldings and ceiling medallions. Blending
historic charm with modern-day restoration, the inn now offers
guests authentic elegance and well-appointed amenities ideal
for travelers of business and leisure.
All 31 guest accommodations have private
baths, several with original clawfoot tubs and some with
double whirlpool tubs. Each shower has a hand-painted tile
with an interesting Saratoga quote or fact, often a topic of
conversation at the breakfast table. Unique decor in every
chamber gives each room its own personality. Period antiques,
family treasures, and custom accents make each accommodation
and a one-of-a-kind creation that carries an elegant Saratoga
style. High Speed Internet access is available.
The jewel of Saratoga Arms is the newly
constructed wrap-around porch, which serves as a gathering
place for guests and visitors. A collection of antique wicker
extends an invitation to leisurely enjoy the activities of
Broadway. The executive conference room offers meeting space
with fully integrated audio/visual equipment. The entire hotel
is WiFi and high speed Internet capable.
A full breakfast is available each morning
in one of the dining areas. After your morning fare, you will
want to visit the surrounding area, which gained early fame
for its medicinal mineral springs in the 1700's, earning
Saratoga the name "Queen of Spas". The town still
has free-flowing drinking springs throughout the city and
several hot spas for a bath, massage or sea wrap. Saratoga is
also synonymous with horse racing, as the city boasts the
oldest thoroughbred racetrack in America. The summer racing
season, as well as the harness track and summer world
championship polo, makes Saratoga the summer home to the who's
who of horseracing.
Ballet, jazz, orchestras, and contemporary
arts fill out the summer schedule of the Saratoga Performing
Arts Center, and the national and regional museums in the area
are in themselves a reason to visit.
As a turning point in the Revolutionary
War, The Battle of Saratoga is remembered at the Saratoga
Historical Park, Saratoga Monument, Ulysses S. Grant Cottage
and the Yaddo Estate.
Those who crave recreation will find golf,
swimming and skiing within ten miles of the inn as well.
As if that doesn't give you enough to do
and see, the Saratoga Arms is also within easy walking
distance of shopping and restaurants, making this concierge
hotel a memorable stay indeed.
