Hotel Saranac wins top prize from NY Preservation LeagueMay 11, 2018
Hotel Saranac was one of seven projects recognized for excellence in historic preservation by the Preservation League of New York State at its annual awards ceremony in May. Freeman French Freeman served as the architect for the $25 million project, owned by Roedel Companies of Wilton, NH.
The six-story landmark hotel in downtown Saranac Lake, New York, opened in late 2017 after a multi-year, top-to-bottom renovation. The historic 1927 building, which sat vacant for nearly a decade, has been repositioned as an upscale, full-service hotel. The project restores original architectural details including terrazzo floors, bronze and plate glass storefronts, and decorative plaster walls and ceilings on the hotel’s two public floors. Upstairs, 82 guest rooms have been fully renovated to meet the needs of modern travelers.
Jesse Beck, President, attended the awards ceremony at the New York Yacht Club in Manhattan on behalf of Freeman French Freeman.Back
