Everyone is so polite and helpful. The staff was very accommodating and polite. I love the shuttle service to take you around town. My party went out for drinks at a local restaurant and it was nice to have the shuttle come pick us up. I love the free coffee in the business room and drank it next to the...

Paid $70 for TWO PEOPLE for brunch. The line was insane, food was slim pickings and cold and most trays were empty. Couldn't even refill my coffee. Then they had the nerve to add a tip. I love the hotel, but this was absolutely ridiculous. Save your money and go to a local diner for breakfast.

Your traveling companion wrote to us last week and shared the very same feedback. I am sorry we failed to provide you with the brunch experience that so many people have grown to love. I have sent a gift certificate - hopefully you will both return to The Gideon so that we may have another opportunity to better serve you.

My company had a holiday party Dec 2016 and it was not very good between the service, the refilling of the food for our clients, we had room special of $99 a night and the rooms were so old and out dated with furniture, the bathroom was much less desirable. there was a party in the next room to ours,...

December is the most popular time for holiday parties, therefore, if your group does not fill the entire hotel, there will likely be other parties going on. I am sorry you had to share the hotel with another group, and also that we failed to provide you with faster service. Hopefully your group contact shared this feedback with their sales...

This is a beautiful hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, the grounds were stunning, and the food was excellent. It's the first hotel I've stayed at in years that had decent lighting -- a bright overhead light instead of just a bunch of small lamps spread through the room.

The Gideon Putnam has been on my list of places to stay and I finally did and it was exactly what I wanted. I also needed to stay somewhere dog friendly as I have a small dog. I really like older hotels that have lots of character and history - colonial decor and crown molding. I didn't get to stay...

I stopped in for an overnight visit during a business trip scheduled in downtown Saratoga. My room was clean and very comfortable. I enjoy the property's rich history and friendly faces. The GM took time to introduce himself and made me feel at home as I was checking in. A very nice man, as well a very nice lady helping...

Haven't been to the Gideon to eat since attending a conference a long while ago. We were seated immediately (had a reservation but probably wouldn't have mattered) Wait staff (Kara?) was friendly and attentive. All four dinners (Stroganoff, Salmon, Burger, Pork) were well prepared and served in a timely manner. A party of ten in the far corner got a...

A hotel on a dead end road in the middle of a 2500 acre park. No car traffic. No congestion. No traffic lights or signs. Peaceful in a special way that is not duplicated anywhere. The hotel was built in the 30's and is grand. Thank God it has not been "updated". Windows in the rooms actually open. When you...
