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

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

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. There are only... More

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. And did I mention you can walk to SPAC!! But -- they have only one public elevator to get to the rooms -- and my room did not have a safe... More

And we love having you! I'm sorry there was no safe in your room. We just did a room inventory to make sure there were safes in every room. If you happen to read this response, email us at the link above and we'll be sure to remedy this. Thank you. More

I've been recommending the Gideon Putnam Resort since my first trip there four years ago. The character and charm of the hotel, and the restorative waters of the springs and Spa are the reason. Other plusses of course are the New York City Ballet summer performances just a stone's throw from the Hotel and proximity to the Saratoga Race Track.... More

The hotel is an older historical inn, and some things looked a little aged, but was overall pretty well maintained. Some items in the bathroom are older style, but worked fine. There is a swimming pool, but it is a little bit of a walk in the back of the property. The drawback with the pool are the limited hours,... More

Thank you for sharing your experience with the greater traveling public. There is so much to do in the Park; hopefully when you visit us next, time will allow for some treatments at the Roosevelt Baths & Spa. Thanks again! More
