“Amazing House!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This is a fantastic B&B. The only drawback is that they were doing a lot of painting while we were there so there was lots of equipment around both outside and inside. Both the breakfast and the room were fantastic!

We rented the mansion for the weekend of our wedding. Our bridal party and families stayed in the inn's nine rooms with us and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Great pictures, great breakfast, and a great way to all be together in our own Victorian mansion! Can't wait to visit again for our anniversary. :)

Room Tip: If you can, I would choose a superior or deluxe room; the standard rooms are pretty small (but still...

We stayed here for one evening. The place is just beautiful. Heather was very pleasant and gave us a nice tour and history if the place. Our room was very nice and it was very clean. It is in a great location close to downtown and right across from a great park. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

This was our first trip to The Batcheller Mansion, and it wont be our last. Stunning 19th century architecture, woodworking and furnishings. First rate accommodations and dining. The location is convenient to all downtown shops, restaurants. Just beware the rates skyrocket in the prime racing season, so plan your trip accordingly. you wont regret it.

Room Tip: Stayed one night in standard room, and one in deluxe room. either one is a good deal.

We were very excited to stay here during the 2012 Saratoga Springs Invitational (crew). The location of the Inn is wonderful as it is central to everything, the building and its furnishings are beautiful and the breakfast would have been fabulous if we did not have to leave for the Regatta site at 5:30 am before the staff started offering their cooked to order breakfasts.

However, the one experience which ruined our stay was the occupants of a room right above ours. During the second night, a group of young women (not on any teams or they would have not been allowed to roam around until the wee hours) arrived in the hotel around 2 AM and went upstairs noisily. They immediately started to run a race around their room (not joking about this) and put a noisy alarm that they could not turn off outside in the hallway. Finally at 3:15 am I could no longer bear it. I was not sure where the manager's room was located. He had told me that he resides in the lower level/basement and I am sure he could not hear what was happening on the third floor (we were on the 2nd floor). When I went upstairs to complain I met some young women in their early 20's who seemed to be dancing in their room. They immediately quieted down when I told them to calm down but I could not fall back sleep and was extremely tired the entire day.
The next day when I told the manager about this incident he did not ask for any details and seemed to have no interest in the matter. If you decide to stay in this hotel, you should make sure you know where the manager is so that he can take responsibility for unruly and wild groups staying in the hotel.
My rating would've been a 5 had I gotten a more appropriate reaction to the noisy guests but I feel that the management is more than happy to let the guests fend for themselves rather than resolving the issue!!
I am staying elsewhere during the crew races this year. Hopefully I will get some rest this time around.

BatchellerMansion, Manager at Batcheller Mansion Inn, responded to this review, May 4, 2013
Sometimes it can be very challenging to offer an appropriate response; therefore I will simply state the facts. In each guest room, directly on the front face of the phone is a direct line ext. to dial to reach me at any time. On the office door is posted a direct line to reach me at any time. On the after-hours phone message it states the direct line to reach me at any time. It actually is very easy to reach me at any hour. We do care about our guests and their comfort and safety. For some reason this guest chose not to call me, immediately, from the comfort of their bed and then decided to notify me the next day after the offending party had already checked out.

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!

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...

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
