A Storied Sanctuary in The Adirondacks
Hotel Saranac has stood in downtown Saranac Lake for nearly a century. An Adirondack base camp, rich in heritage, is now reborn to accommodate modern travelers. In the heart of 6 million acres of pristine wilderness, even the most adventurous spirits can find asylum in this eminent fixture of the area. With preservation of paramount concern, the renaissance of one of the country’s most historic and celebrated hotels is well underway. Roedel Companies has assembled a team of hospitality professionals to restore every inch of The Hotel’s original architecture wherever possible. While preserving the original integrity of The Hotel is our focus, no modern amenity will be spared, including an Adirondack-themed dining experience, full-service spa, and a gift shop that will offer authentic goods sourced from those travelers who set up permanent camp in this ‘Forever Wild’ landscape.
The re-imagined Hotel Saranac is much more than a venue for lodging. It is an upscale, full-service campus with amenities as abounding as the wilderness that surrounds it. The Hotel includes 88 redesigned guest rooms, a fully restored Grand Hall, and ample guest parking whether you join us to stay, eat, play, or plan to do all three (certainly our recommendation).
Culinary excellence will once again be a fixture at Hotel Saranac with the addition of Campfire, Adirondack Grill & Bar, our ode to an authentic Adirondack palate with locally-sourced ingredients. Nothing compares to gathering around a roaring campfire after a long day of adventure to share your experiences with fellow explorers. Tell your stories in similar fashion to those of the Vanderbilt and Coolidge families, as our Campfire Grill & Bar draws inspiration from the fabled Adirondack Great Camps that these and other Gilded Age royalty called their summer homes.
An Adirondack stay shouldn’t be limited to adventure. We invite you to level yourself after a trek up Ampersand Mountain by relaxing in our spa of the same name. Revitalize, refresh, and renew your senses with Ampersand Spa’s full spectrum of spa treatments and services, including a relaxing massage in one of four private rooms.
Named for the bustling intersection of downtown Saranac Lake’s two busiest throughways, Academy & Main is your source for keepsakes and mementos. Visitors and natives alike will find something to love when perusing an array of eclectic items that line the shelves of the series of mini-stores within our gift shop.
Help Define Our History
We are committed to preserving the quality and history of the hotel and would love for you to join us in that endeavor. If you have old photos of events in the ballroom, or stories from the property, we invite you to share them with us on our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and Pinterest page. These are also the best places to track the progress of the project! Hotel Saranac may be getting a facelift, but its soul and character will remain intact – that is our promise to you. Join us for the adventure and witness the long-awaited reawakening of the crown jewel of the Adirondacks.
