Nice resort with a very attentive staff. The rooms and bathrooms need to be updated. The restaurant and bar area are very pleasant. The rooms are a little bit pricy. This hotel needs some overall updating. Although it is a very aged resort it has quite of bit of character to keep it's guest interested.

I love staying at the Gideon Putnam. It is right in the middle of the action in Saratoga! And there is access to wonderful hotel and other recreational activities. And did I mention you can walk to SPAC!! But -- they have only one public elevator to get to the rooms -- and my room did not have a safe (as advertised).

And we love having you! I'm sorry there was no safe in your room. We just did a room inventory to make sure there were safes in every room. If you happen to read this response, email us at the link above and we'll be sure to remedy this. Thank you.

I've been recommending the Gideon Putnam Resort since my first trip there four years ago. The character and charm of the hotel, and the restorative waters of the springs and Spa are the reason. Other plusses of course are the New York City Ballet summer performances just a stone's throw from the Hotel and proximity to the Saratoga Race Track. Walks on the trails or bike riding is available, and golf, though I haven't played on the beautiful course yet. I love the historical dimension of the site and the smell of the trees in summer. I've visited with my husband as well as my daughter (for the spa), and recommend it all to anyone. I leave feeling refreshed, invigorated and rested.

Thank you. It is so wonderful to hear from guests who thoroughly appreciate and take advantage of all that we, and our partners in the Park, have to offer. Thank you for being our cheerleader! We look forward to your return--and it sounds like you look forward to it as well.

The hotel is an older historical inn, and some things looked a little aged, but was overall pretty well maintained. Some items in the bathroom are older style, but worked fine. There is a swimming pool, but it is a little bit of a walk in the back of the property. The drawback with the pool are the limited hours, 10am to 6pm. The hotel will provide towels to guests at the front desk. The hotel is so convenient for visiting SPAC and the grounds are lovely to walk. The restaurant is not inexpensive, but had some different food choices. My daughter had duck and I had the crab cakes. She said the duck was good and the amount was good. My crab cakes were ok. I have had better ones elsewhere and do feel they needed more dressing/topping with them. One thing to consider is that the menu is all à la carte. The cost for dinner with an appetizer of the Saratoga chips with dip, one cocktail, one iced tea, 2 dinners each with a side and 2 desserts was around $70 before tip. The hotel at check in provides a 10% coupon for the Putnam restaurant. It was a nice stay. We did not have the chance to visit the Roosevelt baths, but hope to at another time.

Thank you for sharing your experience with the greater traveling public. There is so much to do in the Park; hopefully when you visit us next, time will allow for some treatments at the Roosevelt Baths & Spa. Thanks again!

Brought my daughter and granddaughter here the last two years for American Girl night at the ballet. Love the historical ambiance, the park, the Victoria Pool and the convenience to the shows at SPAC. If you can get a porch suite….best place for breakfast. They also have a shuttle that will take you downtown that is wonderful because driving and parking in Saratoga during the summer is horrible! Nest year we are doing a Spa overnight. Can't wait so I may have to go with my husband again before the year is out…Don't know if any rooms have a fireplace but that would be nice in winter.

Room Tip: As I said above get the porch suite.

Thank you for your great review. I think when our guests know the history of the Park, and take advantage of the Spa and healing mineral waters, spend the afternoon at the Victoria Pool, take in an evening at SPAC, they are destined to have a good time. We look forward to seeing you again later this year.
