This is a classic hotel. Each time I walk into the lobby, I feel like I'm stepping back into a 1930s movie, except that the hotel has all of the modern conveniences. For that matter, it's quite a drive up the Avenue of the Pines and then to the circular drive leading up to the pillared entrance. Each time I've... More

I stayed here overnight as the resort hosted a board of directors meeting for a group I work with. The setting of this hotel is beautiful. It has a classic look and is proud of its history. Parts of the interior are showing some wear with aging making me think of it as a grand old dame showing her age.... More

We appreciate your feedback, and don't entirely disagree with you. The Gideon Putnam is a NYS-owned, 1935 property in need of constant care. We spend a great deal of money every year maintaining and repairing vital systems that the guest will never see. Should you decide to visit us again, you will continue to see improvements to this grand dame... More

This was our 4th time staying at the Gideon Putnam and even though the previous stays were good, this one was the best due to the Christmas decor. Planning on going out to eat, but instead ate at the resturant downstairs which was top shelf. After eating we enjoyed piano and guitar playing of Christmas music. In the morning before... More

Everyone was friendly. Shuttle drops you off in town and picks you up wherever you want. Great restaurant recommendations. Unbelievable grounds. Hung out around fireplace in lobby with friends and wine.

Enjoyed spending a cold winter night in Saratoga Springs at the Gideon Putnam! Attentive staff kept the fires burning warmly in the grand lobby where I relaxed for an hour or more soaking up the ambience of this grande-dame hotel in the late evening. I always find the beds here oh-so-comfy and always enjoy my stay. No snow on the... More

Great place to visit and clearly the premier location in Saratoga Springs. Ambience is unmatched. Restaurant is convenient and excellent quality. Bring your own pillows as theirs are far too soft. Plan to spend some time enjoying the park, fireplace and casino. ; xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxx

Go back in time to when people knew what 'class' was. The staff understands the meaning of customer service and does so with a full heart- these people really like their job! The rooms here are a bit dated but large and comfortable. We went on a TravelZoo voucher and were afforded the best breakfasts we ever had anywhere- and... More
