The Queensbury Hotel celebrates Grand Opening of Adirondack Ballroom Expansion project
We are thrilled to announce the Grand Opening of our Adirondack Ballroom expansion and newly renovated event spaces!
The $3.8-million renovation features 4,000 square feet of additional event space, combined with the transformation of over 4,000 square feet of our existing event spaces. The project included the expansion of the Adirondack Room, the renovation of the Warren Room and the addition of both an outdoor patio space and a brand-new banquet kitchen for our hard-working culinary team.
The Adirondack Ballroom was certainly the biggest undertaking of the project. The 5,200 square foot event space can now accommodate 300-500 people, depending on the style event and setup needs. It also features sleek and modern airwalls that we’ll use to divide the space into three parts – North, East, West – allowing for smaller events and versatile break-out spaces!
The new Ballroom features modern shades of grays and navy that compliment sleek light fixtures to give the space both a contemporary and classic feel all at once. Our motto is “Elegance Restored” and we think the new Ballroom represents just that!
“The Adirondack Ballroom addition not only continues our mission of returning our city’s Queen back to the top of our region’s hospitality offerings, but also gives us the ability to attract larger conferences, increase the size of social gatherings and continue to hold more and more community events,” said Tyler Herrick, our General Manager of The Queensbury and President of Spruce Hospitality Group.
The Queensbury was established in 1926 and as we approach our centennial celebration, the hotel is no stranger to renovations and restorations. Ed Moore purchased the historic hotel in March of 2016 and entrusted Spruce Hospitality Group to manage the property.
Since then, we have renovated the 123 guest rooms, restored the hotel lobby and front desk, remodeled the restaurants (Park 26 & Fenimore’s Pub) and updated all event spaces and public spaces throughout the property.
Phinney Design Group of Saratoga Springs, who has been involved in many of our recent renovation projects, lead the re-design of the expansion project. They worked hand-in-hand with V&H Construction of Fort Edward to complete the 10-month project.
“You have admit, it’s pretty impressive,” Ed Moore said. “I’m so proud of this place, so proud of these guys. And this stuff doesn’t just happen. It’s not about me. It’s about great people.”
Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
On Thursday, July 21st, we partnered with the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce and Adirondack Regional Chamber of Commerce to hold a ribbon cutting ceremony, followed by a grand reception. We were blown away by the turnout and support shown by our community, clients, partners, local leaders and more.
“This additional conference space and event facility opens up Glens Falls and the region to a new level of potential clientele that have been waiting for such an opportunity to bring their business to the area,” said Gina Mintzer, Executive Director of the Lake George Regional Chamber of Commerce & CVB, at the ribbon cutting
Coming Fall 2022: New Main Entrance
We are pleased to announce that the next phase of renovations will include an update of our main entrance in the rear parking lot. The facelift will include the re-surfacing of the portico, fresh paint, landscaping updates, and new lighting and signage to welcome guests. Updated amenities like automatic doors will also be added for convenience and ease of accessibility.
The design of the new entrance will complement the exterior of the Adirondack expansion to make for a grand welcome.
(And don’t worry… we still have plans to add a Rooftop Bar to the top of The Q one day!)
“This community has long been hardworking, generous, and enterprising. Both steeped in tradition but with an eye towards the ever-evolving future, the same can be said for The Q and it’s nearly 100 years. A great joy for us is hearing people telling stories of when some of their most important moments occurred here. From holidays, first jobs and proms to weddings and celebrations of life,” said Zack Moore, managing partner of Spruce Hospitality.
It is our hope that these new event spaces and this next chapter will continue to serve our community well into the future, while still remaining linked to our proud past.
The Queensbury now has 10 different event spaces with over 15,000 square-feet of unique and flexible space for your next corporate or special event! Consider us for a…
