"Great getaway for some sister time."
We were first time visitors to this hotel. We were very happy with the fact that we could shuttle into town and not have to drive. Our driver Alex was great. We called to be picked up and he was there within 10 min. We had a great time at the Roosevelt spa. Service was excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Staying for a wedding"
This hotel was perfect location for a wedding that took place very close in Saratoga. Staff was very accommodating- needed an early check-in since we were coming from one event and had to change for the second- worked out very well!Genuine Expedia guest review
I was really looking forward to staying at this hotel, however, they put me in an average, out-dated room. I was hoping to be impressed, the hotel has tons of character and charm, but I was not blown away. Everything is on par with a 2 1/2 - 3 star hotel. I was hoping because of the price and the exclusivity that I would be blown away. I have had other […] people tell me they look forward to trips there, these people are obviously staying in a better room than me. The heating unit in the room was broken, all the knobs were broken off and jagged and I had to call the front desk and they had to send someone up. They were reactive to the issue, but I should have an updated unit in the room if the present one is busted. P.S. Do not be in a hurry for breakfast. It takes about an hour to sit in the restaurant and eat breakfast.. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My boyfriend & I just wanted to get away. So we decided to come here. It was very quiet, and comforting. The food was very good too. The employees were very nice and welcoming to us and pointed us to the direction for the hiking trails. I would definitely stay again. Great prices, great location, comfortable beds couldn't ask for a better stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A real treat!"
Having gone to Saratoga Springs many time, this was my first stay at this hotel. The staff was welcoming, accommodating, and the room was so comfortable. I had a king sized room but it was far more than I every expected. A most enjoyable stay, quiet, and close to the Roosevelt Spa.Genuine Expedia guest review
A very pleasant stay , staff and room were excellentGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful setting, friendly service"
Not a spacious room, but a good value considering the pedigree of the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed this past weekend and really loved it. Sunday Brunch was superb!! Highly recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Last minute stay-over in snow storm"
Booked via wifi from state rest stop an hour away, for overnight stay during snow storm.Quaint hotel with real New England feel. Off the main road, in a pine forest that's part of the Saratoga Springs State Park. Quiet, country setting, with walking trails through the park. Great value for price off-season in March. Very we'll maintained. Staff helpful, […] friendly. Drive to most restaurants, attractions, shopping. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel interior was good. Issues I encountered involved how the grounds were maintained during the winter. The sidewalks at 9 AM had not been shoveled. The unplowed parking lot is quite a distance from the entrance door. Dragging my suitcase through the un-shoveled sidewalks was not something I expected. I would suggest adding valet service or additional […] grounds crews. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a lot to offer in the winter"
This hotel in not one I'd stay at in the winter. The ONLY thing to do is go to the Roosevelt Spa, which offers no deals for guests and is over priced and outdated. We could have gone snow shoeing I guess, but it was freezing and icy. The hotel was empty and it felt like something out of the shining.Genuine Expedia guest review
nice hotel, food from restaurant was not greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room at Gideon"
We were initially booked into a room that was supposed to be "Deluxe Queen", however, the room was definitely NOT "deluxe" and the bed was a miniature bed, decidedly not queen, and not even double. When I complained I was told this is their "queen" bed. The room was bland, unappealing, small, and had an unpleasant odor. After the first night in their […] "miniature queen" bed the new person at the desk the following day was much more responsive to my concerns and immediatelysuggested we change to a king bed. The room was larger, much brighter, cleaner, and the bed was actually a king. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Historical place but pass on it and go to another"
We stayed for one overnight and were given a room next to the elevator which was terrible with noise throughout the night. Perhaps it was punishment for taking a pet friendly room. The heat was exceptionally high with no adjustment that worked. I would never stay in this hotel again and can not recommend it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"hotel closest to Roosevelt Baths"
The Gideon Putnam is the only hotel in the State Park and is maybe a five minute walk to the Roosevelt Bath house. The grounds are spectacular. We were there in the winter and it was beautiful....can only imagine how beautiful it is every other time of the year. If you have never been to the Roosevelt Baths then do yourself a favor....GO! And for the […] experience to be the best...stay at the Gideon Putnam. It is close to Saratoga Springs and to the racetrack and you don't even have to leave the park during the summer to be entertained at the SPAC. The staff at the Gideon is wonderful...always helpful and courteous and there when you need them. Cannot say enough good about them. The rooms were clean and very comfortable (the bed usually tells a lot..and it was very comfortable). The Gideon is a very old hotel, but is well maintained and very elegant as you drive up. We will definitely be going back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful historic hotel."
My boyfriend and I wanted a nice get away for the weekend. We loved the Gideon.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel and staff were superb. Linens and towels were so comfy. Wish the bathroom was a bit larger though. Also-our room was over the kitchen so we smelled french fries when we arrived and awoke to the smell of breakfast each morning.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wedding Anniversary or Camping?"
We enjoyed being together, but we were told that we would have a queen sized bed. The bed was a full size bed, and when asked if we could change our room, the concierge said that they were small queens? Really? Also, the bathroom looks like they chose the cheapest material from home depot. The bath tub was extremely small. It definitely needs a make […] over. The hotel room looks like a run down one bedroom apartment in Brooklyn or Queens. The gym also needs renovation. The spa was nice, though, Very disappointed with hotel room, but enjoyed the spa.

"Not a Cookie Cutter Hotel"
This is an historic hotel. Do not expect Holiday Inn Express one-size fits all here. This is a quirky old place in a beautiful setting. Yes, the hotel is a little tired, and temperamental (as is the staff). But many of these unique places are quietly slipping away. Much like the fast food industry, people tend to gravitate toward what they know. This […] is a past we would like to keep. I hope others support it as we have done. I hope you can look past some of the perceived shortcomings to find a quiet well appointed room and a comfortable nights stay. There are two huge (yes, they're real) fireplaces in the lobby. Nice music, historical architecture, etc etc. Beautiful grounds and spa. Saratoga Springs is a great weekender. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"enchanted saratoga springs getaway"
Arrived at the Gideon Putnam Hotel and was graciously welcomed. The staff were professional and displayed kindness which was a welcoming beginning. Received my room and went there to see the sites. I was very pleased and comfortable with theh room. Then I took a walk on the grounds and was in my glory. Came back and met family members in the bar for […] a beer and then we all went to celebrate my Aunt's 90th birthday at her home. It was delightful and a joy to share this ;moment with all. I know next time I will schedule for the spa treatments. It Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice stay"
This was not our first stay here, nor will it be our last. Great historic hotel, in a great setting, with nice amenitites. Only complaint would be the noise from adjacent rooms...walls are thin, not our favorite historic feature.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Visited the Roosevelt Baths"
One of the best old world hotels. The staff and service was the very best.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointed in room"
Beautiful grounds, lovely common areas within the hotel however very ,disappointing room. Very small beds- were not queens even though we were told that they were. Small room,stained carpet, bath drain did not work . Maintenance had to fix our heat. The staff was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Next time, we're coming here purposfully!"
I chose the Gideon Putnam Hotel based on ratings and price, but was completely unprepared for what awaited us. A huge, majestic, historic building with amazing rooms and wonderful staff...for the price, we just expected a place to sleep for the night, but now? Now we have to come back with friends to indulge in the spa offerings and just soak in or […] get out into the surroundings... Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed here last week. Had heard this was the place to stay in Saratoga Springs. It is in a beautiful park which was great. Check in was easy, but then the disappointment started once out of the elevator. Stains on the hallway carpet. Then we got to our room, which was very oddly configured. I get it though, it's an old property. But there was spackle […] all over the walls that had not been painted over, and old furniture. The overall condition of the room felt more motel than hotel.

"Old world charm"
Gideon Putnam is a grand old hotel. The staff are friendly and helpful, the restaurant was excellent, but the rooms and some of the hotel furnishings feel a little run down. We really enjoyed the nearby spa which had wonderfully invigorating, bubbly mineral water and a great massage afterward. I'd recommend this hotel as a characterful place to stay […] in this interesting town. But I don't think I'd stay more than a night or two. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
the room was not clean at all, bathroom was very dirty. Maids haven't done the cleaning properly even though I tipped them every night. You can't lock bathroom door. anyway, never stayed anywhere like this. Only hotel staff (except maids) were very nice!Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room was in the front so it was noisy. We did not get a good night sleep.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A Fabulous Christmas!"
Very Friendly and accommodating to accepting guests and pets.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Thanks to Adam at the front desk we had a great experience! Thanks so much. Great hotel with a beautiful location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My elderly mother and I stayed 3 nights while the remainder of family were living nearby. The hotel staff were very nice, accommodations clean and comfortable. I was able to maneuver a wheelchair around with ease. The atmosphere was one of a GRAND OLD HOTEL. I used the gym everyday and it was perfectly adequate for my needs. My only dissatisfaction […] was with glasses and mugs not being replaced the next day after we had used them and I found the used coffee filter still in the machine but these were minor to say the least.

"Historic place with nice grounds and scenery"
The place is a historic landmark. If you like old and quaint this is the place. The hotel is located in a park which is great for peace and quiet. Nice paths for a run or a walk.Genuine Expedia guest review
We've been wanting to stay here ever since visiting Saratoga many years ago, and the opportunity presented itself for us in the racing "off season." We were disappointed in our room. Specifically...the heat could not be controlled and it was too warm; the linens on the bed were old and worn, as were the mattresses and pillows;and the bathroom had no […] shelving for our incidentals. Otherwise, we loved the doorman. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Classic old hotel"
Though the hotel was old (1930s?), the lobby and restaurant, was well as the rooms, had been well kept. The staff was outstanding and was the dining facility. A very pleasing overnight stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful place to relax and enjoy!"
Hotel is in the middle of the historic Roosevelt Baths, now Saratoga Springs State Park. Beautiful woods and walks; a few minutes on foot to the mineral baths & spa, as well as other features of the Park, including a stage theater and an automobile museum. Restaurant in the hotel is good quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved the room we had during our stay, very spacious and clean. Brunch on Sunday morning was amazing. :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant, Grand, Old Hotel"
Beautiful setting...right in the park, but also close town. Unfortunately, the old radiator in our room could not be regulated, so our room was like a sauna! We thought it was fixed, after they sent someone to fix it, but woke up in the middle of the night sweating...not a very pleasant sleeping experience. To be fair, when I said something about it […] in the morning, the hotel graciously invited us have a wonderful, complimentary breakfast which was much appreciated. Still would have preferred a good night's sleep...which was the point of our stopping for an overnight. I'd still give this place another chance if we came this way again.

"Grand Old Hotel in the Middle of a Park"
This is a grand old hotel in the middle of the Saratoga Springs Spa Park. The surroundings could not be more pleasant. Like many of the classic hotels, it has an old fashioned atmosphere. However, it had all the modern features we wanted.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Pictures not what they appear"
My review/rating is based on my experiences with other high rated hotels. This was my firth time in Saratoga and I wasn’t overly impressed. My low ratings for the hotel were mainly based on a broken drain in the bathroom sink and the overall dreary look of the room. The pictures online aren’t what one should expect upon checking in. Cleanliness of […] the hotel was a concern. The floor of the room was dirty stains/loose dirt and the maintenance appeared to be lacking. After calling down they asked to send up maintenance. I asked for an alternative room but none was available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Loved the Gideon Putnam!!"
What a wonderful hotel in a fabulous setting! The staff was great, the room was just fine and the location is incredible. It was the perfect place to be. We loved breakfast in the hotel restaurant. Some of the best egg's Benedict ever! Really cool old school charm in an amazing state park setting.Genuine Expedia guest review
