5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff are unfailingly friendly and helpful. The outdoor setting is exquisite. It is an old hotel and spa but the historic charm makes up for the less than up to date facility. The services at the spa are top notch and the Sunday brunch has something to please everyone. Looking forward to returning next year.

If you are going to Saratoga Springs and would like a quiet place and off the bustling of Broadway, then the Gideon will be for you. The rooms are rustic and that is a euphemism for anything else. There is good wireless and the service from the employees was great. I think the lobby could be updated a bit more... More

Stayed here for a conference. Staff and facilities were great. Hotel is set in beautiful grounds in a state park. Didn't get to try out the spa or the golf course, but the course looked beautiful from my room. Room overall was clean and well maintained, acceptably modern. Would come again with the wife for a long weekend of rest... More

We stayed four nights in mid-September at the Gideon Putnam in Saratoga Springs while attending a conference held there. We absolutely loved our room primarily because when we walked in and opened the heavily curtained french doors we discovered a sun porch glassed in on 2 sides! You could open the windows and it became a screened porch with lovely... More

Stayed here for a business/golf trip. Very nice facilities and helpful staff. Charming hotel resort located in a state park that has a golf course. Also a great place to hold a business conference. Easy access to downtown Saratoga Springs.

This place got good reviews so we gave it a try. It's old and outdated, and that is definitely reflected in the rooms. Stained carpets and chairs, cracks on ceiling, cracks all over the bathroom. Chipped paint on the walls. We were told we were getting 2 Queen beds and got 1 King which was fine for us, but if... More

I am sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations. We are a 1935 hotel with some imperfections. The rooms are clean, but some of the carpets are stained, or there is chipped paint, or a cracked window. But we are working on it. We have started a major renovation project that will last through next year. We hope... More

Wonderful food and wonderful service! Celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary was really special not only for the couple but also for the friends who were able to attend. Can't wait to see the pictures.

This hotel is in the center of the Saratoga Springs state park. Its a great location, with friendly, helpful staff. The bar/lounge had a good beer selection and the food was really good. Easy access to downtown, with a free hotel shuttle.

I stayed twice in the past year for a conference and enjoyed every minute. The staff is friendly and helpful. The food is delicious. The hotel is not new fancy but old style fancy. Hotel is on the grounds of the state park (beautiful and peaceful) and walking distance to Saratoga Performing Arts Center.
