The cleaning, restaurant staff and concierge were always pleasant and happy to serve. Spacioius room with a beautiful view and comfortable bed. The baths and massage therapists were heavenly. Ask for Nick or Fran! Even if you're there on business, it is a Great place for the family to enjoy, swim, hike, play, relax, and create beautiful memories.

This hotel is located in a state park, near the golf course. It's a well known landmark hotel that has seen better days. There are many nice spaces such as chairs, including rocking chairs, in front and under the trees behind the hotel, and a lovely patio facing the park. These spaces are some of the nicest features of the... More

I am sorry to hear your mixed review. We are a unique destination, with an equally unique history. We are always working toward improvement, so thank you. By the way, we do have a shuttle that operates all day, and another running a constant loop to the thoroughbred track. I'm sorry you missed that. Our rates fluctuate throughout the year--maybe...

This hotel is mostly fantastic and some minor needs improvement. First the great: 1) the grounds are beautiful 2) The staff goes out of the way to assist you in any way they can. From the guy opening the front door to the desk clerks who can't do enough to help. 3) The shuttle service to town, the casino and... More

Thank you for your nice review! We are constantly improving the hotel. We just painted the front side of the hotel and replaced the cracked windows. We have not done the back side of the hotel yet. We have also replaced a number of our air conditioning units, and should have all new ones by next year. Thank you for... More

This hotel was an incredible disappointment. Upon entering the room, I pulled up one corner of the sheets and saw three dead bugs in the mattress. After switching rooms, someone from the front desk basically accused us of lying saying they did not see anything which was an absolute lie and extremely insulting. The second room we stayed in had... More

Hi Tracy. I am so sorry. As you know, the Gideon Putnam is located in the middle of a State Park, surrounded by towering pines. It is likely the ants were attracted to something sweet. I have passed your comments on to our Rooms Division Manager, Laura, for follow up with the housekeepers. We will remain vigilant, and again, I... More

Don't get me wrong: this is a nice hotel, especially for Saratoga Springs that's filled with motels. But the Gideon is incredibly overpriced. I paid appx. $500/night during the height of the summer concert season and race track opening day. At this price, I expect top of the line everything, a la Ritz Carlton, Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, etc. The... More

Hi Mateo. Thank you for your detailed review of the Gideon Putnam. We love to hear from our guests as it helps us to know what we are doing right and where we can improve. As you mentioned, the thoroughbred race track is open, and it is concert season at SPAC. Rates are based upon demand and everything is more... More

I have been staying at the Gideon Putnam for over 20 years. I have come to know its many good points and bad. I stayed in a porch suite the first night of my stay ,I was instructed by the reservationist on the second day of my stay to talk to the desk and see if the suite was available... More

Hi Karen. I can appreciate that you were not happy with your second room, after beginning your stay in a Porch Suite, but I am disappointed to see that you would embarrass one of our employees in this way. Shawna continually goes above and beyond to make sure our guests are happy, and they absolutely love her. The fact that... More

You know, I read a lot of the reviews on this place, and I'm quite surprised by the amount of positive reviews on this place. Yes, the atmosphere, setting, and grounds are amazing. Saratoga is a beautiful place, but that withstanding, it doesn't make the hotel, or the experience of staying there a good one. The rooms in this place... More

Hi Mike. Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I am sorry to hear that we failed you on all levels. And unfortunately, if you stayed with us this past weekend, demand drives rates and it was opening weekend of the Saratoga thoroughbred track. I hope we have another opportunity to better serve you.

Nice resort with a very attentive staff. The rooms and bathrooms need to be updated. The restaurant and bar area are very pleasant. The rooms are a little bit pricy. This hotel needs some overall updating. Although it is a very aged resort it has quite of bit of character to keep it's guest interested.

I love staying at the Gideon Putnam. It is right in the middle of the action in Saratoga! And there is access to wonderful hotel and other recreational activities.
