Saratoga Springs, NY – Today, Consigli Construction joined casino executives and local officials for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand opening of a brand new, four-star Saratoga Casino Hotel. The 117-room facility includes an indoor pool, fitness center, Morton’s® The Steakhouse, lobby bar, outdoor terrace, meeting rooms and a grand ballroom that offers more than 3,000 square feet of meeting and event space. Additional guest amenities include a café, reception area, a vehicle circulation space and full valet services.
“This beautiful hotel will serve as a key building block for the area’s most exciting entertainment venue as it strives to be a premiere destination resort for the entire region,” said Greg Burns, President of New York Operations for Consigli. “This project is the result of an incredible joint venture and we thank our partner Tishman Construction as well as JCJ Architecture, all of the subcontractors and especially the community for their support.”
The hotel will also include a 5,000 square-foot signature Morton’s® The Steakhouse restaurant with a supportive 3,500 square-foot kitchen and 3,000 square-foot ballroom. The hotel is an exciting addition to the 75-year-old harness racetrack and casino that features more than 1,700 slot machines and electronic table games.
“Our new hotel will transform the entire guest experience at Saratoga Casino Hotel,” said Tom Wiedmayer, General Manager at Saratoga Casino Hotel. “We are now a dynamic entertainment destination offering something for everyone, and offering visitors yet another reason to visit Saratoga Springs all year long.”
The entire project scope included the expansion of infrastructure and electric services to support the increased volume of guests as well as all associated site work.
Construction took place on an active campus. To maintain access to the existing casino operations, Consigli was creative in logistics planning and reconfigured vehicle roads, pedestrian walkways and the development of handicapped parking spaces to minimize impact on operations.
