My family and I had a great time at the Gideon Putnam. The rooms are large, comfortable and quiet. The staff is incredibly helpful and the resorts is very family friendly, and it was very easy for our one year old son. The setting is great and the park is lovely and they provide a shuttle to the race track.... More

Thank you very much! We happen to agree that the Gideon Putnam is "the best place to stay in Saratoga." You will feel like you've truly escaped the every day, and yet you are only five minutes from everything in Saratoga. Tell your friends - we'd love to have you back. More

This was our first stay at this hotel, picked because it is adjacent to the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. The hotel is expensive. The lobby is attractive and the check in staff, in fact all the staff, were super friendly. That's what makes the hotel. Our room looks rather faded though the beds and linens were good. The room just... More

Thank you for your [mixed] review. I'm glad to hear you were comfortable, and that our staff treated you well. And we agree with you - a "refresh" is in order. We are working on that for 2015. We hope you do come back for another concert at SPAC, and you will see some of the improvements we have made.... More

This was the most incredible experience. The hotel was gorgeous. I felt like I was in the middle of an old Cary Grant movie. The staff was wonderful and very helpful with my elderly father. We had a shuttle to the racetrack and a van service to town. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. We can't wait to be able to... More

Our hotel does have a very romantic, 'other-worldly' feel. Thank you for saying so. I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and that our staff made things easier for you and your father. Please come see us again. More

Overall a great experience. We stayed with my teenage kids, one who was moving into Skidmore College. Easy access to the track via their shuttle. A lot of things to see and do locally in town. Don't miss the racetrack, kids loved the experience. Check the concert schedule at the amphitheater, a lot of well known performers and you can... More

Welcome to the neighborhood! I am glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. I apologize for the condition of the carpets, they are old, but we do plan to replace them in 2015. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, and hopefully, we will see you many more times throughout your child's Skidmore College career. More

Our first time staying here - it will not be our last. We came by general aviation aircraft to see a concert at the SPAC. We landed at Saratoga Airport, a wonderful facility nearby, and the hotel shuttle came to pick us up from the plane. A short ride later in the room and ready for the 1/4 mile walk... More

Location very nice for concerts and park activities. Room was pleasant and clean. Lacks details. Bed too soft . Staff extremely nice. Early morning walks or runs in the park a big plus. Shuttle to the racetrack is helpful.

We spent 2 nights at The Gideon. Our room was comfortable, clean and well decorated. The hotel, an old and majestic place is nestled in the State Park which includes a number of beautiful structures and a wonderful spa. The hotel offers "on demand" bus service to any local destination and pick up from that destination which allowed us to... More

The hotel has an amazing potential. Located inside the park! Next to tennis courts, pool,golf and a spa it should have 5 start from everyone. The good: Staff is friendly and professional. Spa had a change of management and is now operating without hiccups.Tennis courts (only 4 are maintained) are in very good shape. The not so good: Older hotel... More

Thank you for noticing our improvements, because a historic, 1935 property such as this requires constant care and dollars. We are never without multiple, major projects, but there is only so much room in the budget each year. I am so glad to hear that our staff treated you well, and that you loved our location. Please come back and... More

The rooms are currently very disappointing.They renovated this period hotel and tried to go modern in the rooms and lost all the charm that they had prior to renovation. I stayed here prior to renovation years ago and they could get away with it being old and tired in the rooms because of the charm of keeping the interior decorating... More

You are right. We can not compete with a chain hotel. Staying at the Gideon Putnam is a completely different experience. I am sorry to hear that we were not for you. We are always making improvements to the hotel, so we hope you will consider staying with us again. More
