Legendary New England Resort Offers Greater Flexibility for Meetings and

The BALSAMS, the most
celebrated grand resort hotel in New England, will undergo a comprehensive
restoration under the leadership of general manager Uwe Roggenthien,
announced Delaware North Companies Parks & Resorts, the management company
for the property. The project is designed to retain the resort's historic
charm while positioning it for future growth by upgrading accommodations
and creating more flexible function space for meetings and weddings.
Roggenthien, a veteran of the hospitality industry, is charged with
overseeing the project.

Idyllically set on 15,000 acres in New Hampshire's majestic White
Mountains, The BALSAMS is legendary for its breathtaking natural beauty,
endless recreational activities, and award-winning cuisine. One of the last
remaining grand resort hotels, it is considered a national treasure.

"The restoration was thoughtfully designed to preserve all the elements
that have endeared The BALSAMS to generations of guests and is already well
underway," said Roggenthien. "When complete, the property will retain its
unique character while increasing its appeal for today's leisure travelers
and as a destination for meetings, groups, and weddings."

The first phase of the restoration encompassed 16,200 sq. ft. of space
and was completed in December 2007. JCJ Architecture was selected to lead
the project, which saw the complete restoration and interior redesign of
all common areas, social rooms and 7,200 sq. ft. of meeting space --
including the Grand Ballroom and historic Ballot Room. The increased
functionality achieved allows The BALSAMS to offer dedicated meeting space,
private catering with more options than before, and access to break out

The next phase of the project calls for the construction of a model
guestroom later this year followed by the restoration of 110 guestrooms in
the hotel's Hampshire House wing. The BALSAMS has chosen TMS Architects and
LDL Architectural Design to oversee this phase of the restoration.
