4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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

The Gideon Putnam was charming. We only got to stay one night, but got to enjoy the spa and a bit of the grounds. The staff was incredibly friendly; even the maintenance man introduced himself to us. Wish we could have stayed longer to appreciate the part itself. While there are improvements needed to this property, it is a vast... More

This is an older traditional resort hotel that is perfectly situated if you are attending performances at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Have dinner (and breakfast the following day) on the inviting outdoor back patio overlooking verdant lawns and trees, and you are a short walk along a pleasant footpath from a performance by the NYC Ballet or Philadelphia Orchestra....

Highly recommend the mineral bath. If I lived closer, I would do a mineral bath every week. Front desk staff at hotel were very friendly and helpful. Lovely location -- would be great in any season (spring, fall, winter and summer).

Been here twice. Both times were extremely wonderful stays. The Hotel is beautiful and the grounds are as well. Close to everything you need in Saratoga Springs. Kind of feel like you're going to turn a corner and see some gangsters straight out of the 1920's!!

No gangsters, but maybe Gatsby?! You are not too far off - we were build in 1935 and that sense of a by-gone era still remains. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. More

I love this place. Out of the past ten years we've stayed there 8, often bringing the whole family -- the setting in the state park is a wonderland. The bad news? Breakfast. In the midst of the racing season this year, the wait staff acted like they were surprised there were so many of us in the hotel wanting... More

Oh boy, I am sorry to hear that. We thank you for you patronage, and I certainly don't want a bad breakfast experience to taint your memories of us. This is an easy fix - I will speak with the staff. Thank you. We hope you will decide to stay with us again next year. More
