Enjoyable stay to visit the area and dine. Hotel provides transpot to city and track and casino. Golf in park is enjoyable and the city pool is worth the visit. The massage at the spa is worth the money and time.

We had a late lunch after the races at Saratoga. For some reason, three or four flies kept flying around us and when we were served our food it just got worse. The waiter ignored them. Our food was mediocre and I would not return for a late lunch ever again.

This was a great place to stay to visit the race track, downtown Saratoga, and see the Automobile and Dance museums. The setting in the park is quite special. We also appreciated the hotel transportation to and from the race track to mitigate the problems with parking nearby.

The hotel is historic with small rooms, but big prices. Grounds are beautiful. The shuttle service is a plus, but be prepared for long waits on racing week-ends. Definitely recommend taking advantage of the Roosevelt Baths.

My wife and I and 2 other couples visited the Gideon Putnam Resort in Saratoga Springs to go to the races and also to play golf. The hotel was great--we upgraded to a porch suite which was very nice and allowed us a spot to gather the 6 of us for cocktails. The setting --in the Saratoga Spa state park... More

Hotel had lots to offer and had the advantage of an shuttle to and from downtown, track, and SPAC. Amenities included on site restaurants and bar. Pool and spa were a distance from the rooms, but all beautiful.

Well...almost. The drive into Saratoga State Park through the Avenue of the Pines is exhilarating and beautiful. There is the golf course on either side of you and a paved path where you pass joggers,strollers with toddlers,walkers and wildlife. A most soothing feeling and then you come upon a wondrous columned facade of a Georgian brick building on elegant,manicured grounds... More

Beautiful grounds - the space used for DND was amazing to walk through - I wanted to try the springs but wasn't able to due to other activities, I would like to return to Saratoga springs New York one day in the future to see the races and perhaps spend some time downtown

This old hotel sits within the park and walking distance to SPAC. They have a shuttle bus to Saratoga Springs and the race track. The rooms are spacious and the back patio is literally in the park. Don't miss the Sunday Brunch.

The staff was extremely well trained, polite and helpful. The room was nice, but at that price ther should have been greater attention to details. The TV picture was dull, the blinds were missing knobs, and the clock was off by 12.5 hours. These are small things, but they should not be found in a 1st class hotel.

I am sorry. You are absolutely right - things like setting the clock to the correct time should not be missed. We lost power for a few minutes on Friday, so this was obviously an oversight on our part. We have started to renovate and will continue through next year - this will address things in the guestrooms like missing... More
