My "husband to be" and I wanted a special place to stay on our wedding night. The Mansion is breathtakingly beautiful inside and out. Our room was rich in history, had every modern convenience and our room was very, very large. Dressing for my wedding was something I will never forget in a great way! My attendants and photographer were delighted with the facility. The bathroom sported extra conveniences from a make up table with excellent lighting to one of those huge old fashioned bathtubs that the photographer used to take some incredible photos! Marble topped dressers, turn of the century sitting area and a huge bed are just some of the many features in our room. We were looking for a place to stay the evening of our wedding that was close to where our wedding was held - the Batcheller Mansion was just perfect and we hope to spend anniversaries there in years to come. The breakfast was excellent even though we went down very late the next morning. Breakfast was cooked to order by their expert chef -- you can't get any better than that. The common areas were spacious and full of architecturial beauty. Off street parking is available to guest, which was a pleasant surprise. My husband was delighted as well. Our previous favorite place was The Essex, a 4 diamond resort in Vermont. The Essex can't come close to the Batchellor Mansion. The Batchellor Mansion is Number 1 in our book and it will be in yours as well.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located in the heart of downtown Saratoga Springs on historic Congress Park, this magnificent inn represents old world sophisticated elegance with a new world attitude. One of America's great Victorian houses, the Batcheller Mansion Inn simply cannot compare to other Saratoga Inns. Built in 1873, this American architectural masterpiece is an elegant mixture of small hotel and living history museum with the intimate feel of a bed and breakfast. Intricately carved European woodwork, hand carved marble fireplaces, family relics on loan from museums, original 1800's Batcheller family furnishings, and spellbinding grandeur make this one of a kind Saratoga inn and living history museum a stately retreat. Throughout the past 137 years, some of Saratoga's grandest parties were staged here, hosting U.S. Presidents, European Royalty, Dignitaries and Hollywood Celebrities. Designed by Nicols and Halcott of Albany, NY in 1873, this High Victorian Gothic mansion exhibits influences from the French Renaissance, Italian, and Egyptian styles. The red and gray slate mansard roof is bifurcated by dormers, each accented by a huge clamshell arch. The ivory stucco facade is studded by a myriad of ornate bays and its conical tower, resembling a minaret, is right out of Arabian nights. That bit of exotica was the result of original owner George S. Batcheller. This Saratoga inn was selected as Inn of the Month in the April 1999 issue of Country Inns. The mansion has also been the subject of many architectural studies, and has been featured in many books and film throughout its history. The Batcheller Mansion was specifically cited as an inspiration by Kevin Cummings, Development Manager for Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort. ... more less
