We enjoyed our overnight stay and appreciated the great staff. The park was easy to navigate and the hotel provided a restfull night. The hotel being in the park provided us with carefree access to a restful walk.

We recently traveled to Saratoga Springs as part of a tour group, where we stayed overnight at the Gideon Putnam. I had previewed the hotel and reviews prior to the trip, and I agree with all the reviews that this hotel is definitely worth a stay. The hotel is surrounded by a beautiful park where lots of people were playing...

Nice stay in a beautiful state park setting. The Roosevelt Spa package was wonderful. Choose from a menu of spa services such as massage, European facial, or mineral bath. Next time, I might take advantage of free shuttle to downtown Saratoga.

Stayed here for a Rotary Conference in April 2017. The staff made the stay a pleasure. The hotel is beautiful with nice outside areas to sit. Very clean and beautiful/comfortable common rooms. Food was excellent but I thought priced just a couple of dollars too high. The bedrooms and bathrooms were well appointed, had the 'old-hotel' feel, but the bathroom...

Our whole experience was pleasant from start to finish. The staff were friendly and really went out of their way to make our stay the best it could be. The grounds are beautiful and relaxing and exceptionally quiet. We felt as if we had traveled back in time to a turn of the century getaway.

We were there for a conference. The staff was ready to assist wherever possible and always responsive. Our conference food was very good and beautifully presented. The hotel is a pretty preserved older building and well maintained.

We loved the Gideon Putnam's setting in the Saratoga Spa State Park. The Park grounds and forests were visible from all the rooms, especially from the spectacular brunch buffet. The staff was courteous and helpful, and our whole experience was memorable.
