Pending sale at resort in Harrison

Delaware will become managers under new ownership

Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa is undergoing a change in ownership.

The hotel has been for sale for a number of years, and Ian Maw, director of sales and marketing recently confirmed that a new owner will be announced soon.

“Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa is in the process of a new ownership transition and sale to another company,” he wrote in a email to the Observer. “Delaware North Parks & Resorts will remain as the manager of the property. We look forward to welcoming the new owners and hearing more about their plans for Harrison Hot Springs Resort and Spa.”

Delaware is the current owner and manager of the operation, and are managers of resorts around the world.

The resort has been a mainstay for accommodation in Harrison Hot Springs for almost 100 years, being built in 1925 after a fire destroyed the St. Alice. The hotel was used briefly as a sanitarium in the 1940s, for women returning from Europe who had participated in the war effort. Additions to the main building, including the towers and the Copper Room, were made in the ’50s, ’60s and ’80s.
