The new meeting rooms feature 10-foot-tall doors, while glass walls look out on the Saratoga Springs streetscape and allow passers-by to see activity inside. Lounge furniture, LCD welcome screens, upscale carpet, and warmer colors create a more modern space. Recessed lighting, a staircase and a visual flow between the two levels adds an upscale element. The new conference spaces offer flexible arrangements that can be subdivided for breakout rooms – a common request from groups. Each room is supported by a pantry that serves as a staging area for catering groups.
Other nips and tucks include the installation of Saratoga’s only interior escalator, stunning glass windows and paneling, sparkling new washrooms and a number of environmentally friendly energy systems.
A more pronounced entry with a large canopy and heated sidewalks makes the four-season center more user-friendly. The facility has many Green features, including high efficiency boilers and rooftop units, as well as the glass windows, which help capture the natural light and have translucent shades designed to trap warmth in the winter and let heat out in the summer.
