My girlfriend and I were in Saratoga for Labor Day weekend and found the Visitor's Center and the tour in Congress Park highly impressive. The tour guide on August 31st was an entrepreneur who was filling in for someone else but his exceptional knowledge of the history and geology of Saratoga provided us a unique perspective on the origins of...

Stopped by for directions to the hotel. The elderly woman seemed confused about where the hotel was and how to get there. .. She did manage to explain it and it was fine but I do think she should have been more knowledgeable. I would have like to look at the info but my husband was parked in the street... More

The staff could be more engaged. Once we got their attention, they recommended a tour of the State Park for the spa (mineral springs) that was very worthwhile.

WE found the information pamphlets helpful, the staff person was very friendly and the short video about the Saratoga Springs was really informative and interesting.

We arrived at the center today around 10 a.m. After walking around and watching the 15 video we were about to leave, then they announced a walking tour. It cost $5 per. No warning that the tour would last ~90 minutes. Regardless, our tour guide, Ray, did a wonderful job pointing out the sights and taking us on a walk... More

In my travels all over, I've never felt compelled to review a Visitor Center...but there's a first for everything & the one in Saratoga Springs is special. For starters, have a look at how pretty the building is...and it rests on the site of some historical happenings (anyone see the movie '12 Years a Slave'?) Inside, the visitor center guides... More

My husband and I, along with our dog child decided to spend the weekend in Saratoga Springs because of all the dog friendly hype. We were disappointed to find that 2 weeks ago dogs have been banned from outside designated patio areas at restaurants. Sure we could leave our dog in the hotel to cry and annoy guests for a... More

Worth checking out when you first head into Saratoga Springs. They have plenty of brochures and insight on the area. Probably would have stayed longer to watch the video.
