“Very good breakfast and cozy, comfortable room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

All of the rooms were nicely decorated. The woodwork was amazing. The outer door weighs a few hundred pounds (2-5" of solid oak). When you arrive, just push to open the outer door. Eventually, it will move! The beds very comfortable (like being in a cloud) and bathrooms nicely equipped. Breakfast was delicious. The chef/host gave a very welcoming greeting and ensured that we ate well!

Room Tip: Pick any one, you can't go wrong. But beware with its high ceilings, the 3rd floor rooms requir...

My husband and I spent a few days at The Batcheller Mansion to celebrate our anniversary. We found the house and hospitality beyond compare. What an incredible place! The architecture, wood work details, and decor are exceptional. There is so much history in this house. We spent many hours in the mansion library looking through photos, memorabilia and historical documents. We stayed in President Grant's Room - it is huge, beautiful, overlooks Congress Park, has a professional sized pool table and a large bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower. Chef/Inn Keeper Dan's breakfast is delicious. Saratoga Springs has so much to do - even in the middle of winter! If you are someone who appreciates history and the finer things in life you are sure to enjoy the Batcheller Mansion in Saratoga Springs. HIghly recommend it!

Room Tip: All the rooms in this mansion are incredible. However, only two have jacuzzi tubs - the Batcheller...

Wonderful room, very clean, bed not the best, to soft for my liking.
Full breakfast cooked at the moment (you can order eggs, french toast,etc. or help yourself to cereal fresh fruit or homemade cookie from the buffet table) and served at your table.
Coffee, tea and other hot beverage available all day long, staff very nice and always available.
Complimentary bottle of water in your room.
Located right where all the shops and restaurant are.
We'll be back.

My husband and I were looking for a quick getaway over the recent holiday weekend and decided on Saratoga. We have been to Saratoga many times before, sometimes for day trips other times overnight and usually stay in one of the local hotels. This time we were without kids and decided we wanted to try one of the local Inns. After seeing so many positive reviews on Trip Advisor we choose the Batcheller Inn. We were not disappointed. The Inn is gorgeous, when you step inside you really do feel as if you have entered into a different era. The period furnishings, beautiful woodwork and detailing throughout the Inn is beautiful. I do wish we were able to have a tour of the house but every room was taken! Even with a full house the Inn was quiet and comfortable. We stayed in the Catharine Room. It was very large and comfortable although the bathroom is oddly configured. The bed was extremely comfortable which always seems to be an issue when you travel. The only problem with the room was the heat, it was so hot that it made it very difficult to sleep. I did ask about this early in the evening but I guess it is difficult to control the heating in such a large and old house. Breakfast the next morning is not to be missed. Along with a buffet of fruit, homemade muffins and some other basic breakfast items there were several made to order items on the menu. The dishes were unique and delicious. My husband enjoyed his so much that Dan insisted he have seconds! I loved the look of the modern kitchen and the antique dining room! All in all this was a great place to stay with a very friendly and helpful staff. I would have like to have stayed longer! We love visiting Saratoga and I'm so happy we discovered the Batchellar Mansion Inn. We will be back!

Got back last weekend 1/12/13 this was a gift given to us by someone very special to me, arrived early, our room was ready, met by Dan the innkeeper and cook. He gave a fantastic tour of the mansion & a great history lesson. Rooms were all gorgeous, clean & each uniquely styled. Staff always available & accommodating. All restaurants & shops within very short walking distance, museum & park across the street. Full breakfast cooked to order by Dan, delicious (stuffed French toast a MUST, eggs in the hole my hubby's favorite). Fresh baked goods daily, all served on beautiful china. Coffee, tea & hot chocolate available all day. A wonderful experience. Will be back again. In fact, loved it so much booked 5 rooms together as a gift to our children early March!!

Room Tip: Larger rooms have candle lit fireplaces

Staff gave us a tour and history of this property, because it was a quiet time when we were there, saw most all of the rooms and suites, and condition of this Inn is fantastic. Antiques, plush carpet, common areas outstanding. We stayed in the "Kate" which was just charming. We could walk to the down town and restaurant, so that was also a plus. The only negitive was that the regular chef was not present when we stayed, so breakfast was not so great. Apart from breakfast all was wonderful, so we would definitely return.

Room Tip: All rooms looks perfect to me.

We stayed in the "George" room overnight on our way back from further up in the Adirondacks. Huge room with a nice view of the park. We've stayed in many B&B's over the years and the architecture and woodwork in this one is truly outstanding. Beautiful public areas and and easy stroll to many restaurants just on the other side of the small park. We ate at Sperry's (excellent food and service!). Everyone at the inn was very personable and professional and Dan had several yummy suggestions or he will cook your breakfast to order. You can't go wrong here.

Room Tip: The larger/better rooms are on the second floor although there is one up on the third floor that his...

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
