The Grand Hotels of Saratoga presented by Charlie Kuenzel
Friday, November 19 • 11 a.m.
In the 1800’s our city was the number one destination for summer travelers. The grand hotels would open for the summer season. Hotels with names like Grand Union, United States, Congress Hall and Grand Central to name a few. These enormous hotels were like the cruise ships of today, offering the very best in food, music and entertainment. Since Saratoga Springs was the spot to see and be seen, the large porches found at each hotel were lined with rocking chairs that provided the place to people watch on hot afternoons. Join Charlie and immerse yourself in the history of these “grand hotels.”
