Located in a beautiful setting, Saratoga Spa State Park, with so many things to do. Hotel provides transportation to the local town and attractions so you don't have to worry about driving, parking, or getting lost. Staff is very friendly and welcoming and willing to fulfill all your requests.

There aren't enough good things to say about the Gideon Putnam! beautiful, lush grounds, exceptional food, clean, upgraded accomodations (i stayed in the Putnam Suite) and a 5-star spa on the premises...there were friendly staff always available to help if needed and a shuttle bus available immediately...i suggest, however, that you take the 7 minute walk to the spa yourself...

Time travel to the 1930's...beautifully maintained hotel and SPA. Soak in the mineral baths in a private room and drink the water from a variety of natural springs throughout the majestic grounds. A truly healing experience!

Just returned from a four day conference at the Gideon Putnam. The property is an old building located in the middle of a state park which means you have only woods surrounding you. The staff is pleasant and professional although I did noticed that there is no doorman nor anybody to assist arriving guests with their luggage. The doors are... More

If you are looking for a beautiful, serene setting and friendly staff, give yourself a gift and stay at the Gideon Putnam Resort and Spa! This is a historical, well maintained resort, with easy access to interesting Saratoga Springs. This hotel has an old world charm with a modern attitude towards accommodations, food and quality services.

The Gideon Putnam hotel is aged to perfection and all the staff are excellent. The spa is an incredible value and so incredibly clean and well run. We had a great time walking around downtown Saratoga and visiting the local winery.

Everywhere you look, this is an old-school grand hotel in the great tradition, and EVERY detail is perfectly and lovingly maintained and cherished. The rooms are small, but mint. The bearing and entry are stunning - one could easily picture a big band playing and elegantly dressed couples dancing.

The hotel setting is beautiful and the spa is well worth the trip. I stayed there for two nights for business and the rooms are very quiet. Initially I was concerned with my room location as I was across from the elevator, but could not even tell from inside my room.

Hotel is beautiful and elegant. The park in which it is located is great for hiking and experiencing the springs. The on-site Roosevelt Spa offers mineral baths which is very soothing. We also enjoyed inexpensive buffets at the nearby Saratoga Spa Casino.
