It doesn’t look like much from the outside, but inside is a cool treat. Location and parking are best features. I am looking to checking out sister properties. Price is very reasonable and included a $5 gift card to the coffee shop across the street.

Hotel's Favourite
The Downtowner is our go to when we plan a getaway to Saratoga Springs. The location is perfect. The Downtowner personnel are very friendly. When we arrived in our room there was a "treat bag". It is a special touch. Accommodations are always perfect.

The hotel is in a great location, that is the only positive of this review. The hotel is a remodel of an old hotel and they should think about closing until the remodel is 100% complete. The room I was in was hot and that was with the A/C running at "full blast". The courtyard was a sauna and had no air flow at all. The shower in my room only had one temperature and that was scolding. I had to take a shower in another room. I was given a key to another room to take a shower. You read that correctly. Before opening, the hotel needs to finish the remodel. There are no elevators to go to the second floor.

We're extremely disappointed to hear that your stay with us did not meet your expectations. Although certainly uncommon, we can completely understand your frustrations regarding the A/C and shower issues you experienced in your particular room. We do apologize for having missed the mark with you but we do hope you might give us another try in the near future, as we're sure we can deliver a great stay.

Thank you so much for making my daughter's stay memorable with the sweet gift bag of goodies in celebration of her birthday. It was very sweet and thoughtful. Clean, comfortable, beautiful hotel in a great location. Super friendly and helpful staff.

This hotel is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs, within easy walking distance of numerous restaurants, shops, and the park. The room was comfortable and inner courtyard was convenient for meeting up with our friends who were also staying there. The hot and cold coffee on tap were a nice touch, but not to my personal liking. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only downside was there was a festival in town while we were there, so the small parking lot was taken up by kiosks for the day.
