Phinney Design Group was hired by Delaware North, the property management firm of the Gideon Putnam Hotel, to provide planning and interior design services for a major renovation to the 80 year old historic hotel. The Gideon Putnam Hotel was constructed in 1934 for health and wellness seekers “to take the healing waters” of Saratoga Springs. The current interior renovations to the Hotel are focusing on the main lobby, public restrooms, guest rooms, guest room corridors, banquet and meeting rooms.
The original interiors of the Gideon Putnam Hotel were created by Dorothy Draper, a famous designer with a modern baroque theme creating cinematic drama contrasted with oversized prints and patterns. Phinney Design Group will reinvent Dorothy Draper’s approach while incorporating a more contemporary palette. The resulting design will modernize the facility which will invigorate the once must stay destination resort.
