Great place to stay in every season. Took advantage of the Roosevelt Spa amenities this time. We have stayed in other local downtown hotels but prefer the park setting and dog friendly amenities. Coming back for graduation!

I had a great visit here. I loved the history of the property and had a great mineral bath and massage in the spa. I'm looking forward to a future visit to the spa for another mineral bath and massage.

Saratoga is famed for it's healing mineral waters, and our spa, the Roosevelt Baths & Spa, has been around since the 1930s. Thank you for sharing your positive experience, and we look forward to seeing you again. More

My sister and I purchased a girls night package. It was a little pricey but we really enjoyed ourselves. The staff was friendly, the rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. The spa was a wonderful escape from reality. My sister and I both highly recommend a mineral bath, it was amazing.

The Gideon Putnam is a warm and comfortable place to stay--old fashioned, welcoming and enjoyable. Although the structure is older, the facilities have been updated and are kept in good repair. We enjoyed the ambiance and the setting in the park. The hotel is also well located, near the Performing Arts Center, downtown Saratoga Springs and Skidmore College. We plan... More

This beautiful old hotel is located in the middle of acres of parkland, winding trails, and magical old buildings from the mineral spa's heyday. The staff is anxious to please and the rooms and bathrooms are as clean as can be. It's also very close to Saratoga where you can stroll, shop and eat to your heart's content.

I love the Gideon Putnam. It is beautiful and historic. The grounds make you want to be outdoors. The spa is wonderful. Saratoga has fun shopping and restaurants and very close with the complimentary shuttle. The rooms do need updating.

Hi Joan - thank you for your sharing your love of the Gideon Putnam. I mentioned in the previous review that we hope to update the fitness room in 2015 -- refreshing the guestrooms is also in that budget. Thank you for your patronage. More

Stayed two nights for a small conference event in the early Fall. The location within the heart of the State Park Complex is unique and very enjoyable. I didn't get back in my car until check out and yet enjoyed the park and the city during my stay. Some tips and notes: as with many older hotels, the rooms are... More

Beautifully appointed historic hotel with simple yet luxurious accomodations. We only stayed for one day as it was toward the end of a multi-stop road trip but enjoyed it very much.

You may have only been here for an overnight, but it sounds like you made good use of your time, and had a classic Saratoga experience.

The Hotel has so much history and we love the old time atmosphere! The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. We love taking a trip during the autumn time to see all the fall foliage and visit the downtown area. Lots of great restaurants locally, something for everyone! We also enjoy the SPA and mineral baths. Great get away destination!
