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
"Saratoga State Park & Gideon Putnam Hotel, WOW"
The food was excellent and the Saratoga State Park grounds were very relaxing and enjoyable. My wife loved her spa treatment at the Roosevelt Baths.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Lovely Old Hotel"
Room was comfortable. Appreciate the character of the hotel. Breakfast was very good. Only spent one night, so we didn't have time to use the spa. Would like to stay again when we have more time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent resort hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were very impressed by everything at the hotel. We would love to stay there again.Genuine 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. We enjoyed this location so much!Genuine Expedia guest review
Other then the extra long metal bed frame (Ouch!), it was very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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
"Nice old-fashioned hotel with style"
I don't have much to report. The park is beautiful.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
"A lovely setting close to everything"
Lovely old historic hotel, comfortable but in need of updating.Genuine Expedia guest review
"The hotel is classic pretty hotel."
I like everything except one of receptionist. When I tried to rent a bicycle, she took like 40mins for paper work, give me a key or something. She was slow movement. Since she was too lazy, she asked another male staff to set up finally. She had some attitude also. I felt very uncharitable. Other staff were amazing specially shuttle drivers. They were […] always smile and good motivation. The restaurant was greatAAA and spa also. I will go back there again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The old gray mare ain't what she used to be! Spectacular location but this hotel has seen better days, Dingy rooms and hallways, although the staff is top notch but clearly overworked. The fine gentleman who made and delivered my daughters strawberry shake was hauling trash and retrieving cars the next day. I wanted to love it but....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I do not consider this a 4 star hotel, it is a solid 3. The grounds are beautiful as is the drive to the Hotel and curb appeal. It go's down hill when you go to the Elevator's, beat up and corridors, musty and dingy. The rooms are spacious, the decor, nothing memorable, the beds and linens comfy and the bathrooms are basic for an old property. The biggest […] disappointment was the pool, it is not only for Hotel guests, but is open to the public for membership, so it was packed, coolers and all!! Not a place where you would bring a book and hang out. A big plus is the shuttle service that takes you to the Saratoga track and downtown. I would go back for the convenience, which I would give a 10. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great historic property with useful amenities"
Stayed here during the race season. The staff provided excellent service and the shuttle option for both the races and getting into town cannot be beat as parking is tough in the town at this time of year.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had a fabulous time. TheGideon Putnam is charming and a real respite rush rush life. We loved itGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to races, theater, shopping"
We stay to the Gideon Putnam about 2-3 times a year and love the atmosphere of the hotel. The good was excellent, especially the Estate Dinner!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant Structure in Beautiful Setting"
It would be hard not enjoy a visit to Gideon Putnam solely on the basis of the surrounding grounds and the comfortable, spacious lobby. It's a great place to meet and spend time with friends. Golfers will see some other advantages, but for us the hotel is showing signs of its age and need for a little reinvestment. The service is just acceptable given […] the premier positioning and pricing -- a series of relatively small, but cumulatively annoying deficiencies added up. I'd go back for sure --but with hope from improvement, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Elegant hotel in beautiful state park"
We had a nice stay here. Bikes are available to rent to ride around the park -- a nice way to see some sights and get some exercise. There is a free shuttle to downtown, which is a good way to avoid parking hassles.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel close to Saratoga Springs center."
The grounds surrounding the hotel are exquisite. The location of the hotel is close to the center of Saratoga Springs, so good shopping and many choices in restaurants. I believe it is near the race track but the races hadnt begun when we were staying so I not sure. There is also a spa on site.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful Setting in Saratoga State Parke"
We caught the Gideon Putnam at an off moment. The hotel was practically empty and had scheduled intensive maintenance on the kitchen so we couldn't use the restaurant or the patio - which we had been looking forward to. The barman was great and gave us some tasty fresh potato chips. We will be back, especially for the beautiful setting and the miles […] of bike/walking trails in that lovely park.

"Ideal location in Saratoga"
Found a well kept room with helpful staff. The grounds were nice and had walkways suitable for walking or bicycling. It was also very convenient to the track, casino, golf and downtown. Only regret was staying only one night!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay for SPAC and Park events"
The location is great! Historic building in great setting. However, room wasn't ready at check in time; we had to wait over an hour.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very close to grduation party"
was a lovely place id recommend it to any one, alittle pricey thoughGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed at the hotel for the RUSH concert at the SPAC on June 25th, 2013. I can't tell you how impressed I was! The room was very roomy, nice and clean with comfortable beds. The hotel staff were very friendly, and very tolerant of all the Rush fans that showed up! The restaurant had very good food inexpensively priced, though I was disappointed that […] the bar closed so early... they needed to keep it open until at least 2 after the concert. Morning room service for breakfast was good too and very prompt. The attached spa was AMAZING and I loved the fact that you could easily walk through a gorgeous forested path the to SPAC in in moments. Definitely worth the stay but if you are coming for a concert and plan to spend time with your friends afterwards, bring your own refreshments ahead of time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel a SPAC"
Stayed here to go to a concert at the Saratoga Percorming Arts Center. Only about 1/4 mile to the entrance of SPAC. Nice rooms. Has a nice looking golf course and pool but didn't use these. Staff very friendly and professional. Would give 5 stars but knocked it because the restaurant closed very early and room service stopped at 1100 pm. There was no […] late night bar at the hotel. I would stay there again though, since you can't beat the proximity to SPAC ( only a 5 minute walk). I'll just bring my own cooler to the hotel next time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely historic hotel."
LOVELY stay at the Gideon Putnam. This beautiful hotel was built long ago, but they keep it updated while still maintaining that wonderful, historic feel. Everything about my stay here was pleasant - it's just beautiful. VERY comfortable bed, nice large room, stunning view. I only wish I could have stayed longer. I would definitely return!Genuine Expedia guest review
"An elegant old lady"
A slightly worn but very elegant older hotel with wonderful food, extremely comfortable rooms, and excellent service. Just ignore the chipped paint on the radiators.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good place to relax"
Great place to go and experience the historic flair of the 18 and 19 hundreds. The staff is very kind and helpfull, the restaurant "old fashioned" in a stylish way and serves great food. The hotel is in the middle of the Saratoga Springs SPA Park, far away from the hectic every day live. My wife and I stayed only for one night but we really enjoyed […] it.

"Picturesque, historic, charming."
Picturesque, historic, charming. The grounds of the Gideon Putnam are meticulously maintained, as are the hotel rooms. The staff is courteous. However, do not expect a fancy modern bathroom, as this is a turn-of-the-century building. You will find a very clean and beautifully restored authentic antiques, reproduction fixtures, and cast iron tubs. The […] rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. My one, very small, dissatisfaction came from the noise heard from adjacent rooms and hallways. This is to be expected in any hotel setting. Other than that, we had a lovely stay.

"Lovely hotel in a quiet neighbourhood"
Old classic hotel in a quiet area. Lovely change after having been one week in NY. Saratoga Springs is also a nice little city with good restaurants. Nice beds, except that they are a bit short if you are more than 175 cm (5 ft 9 in). Hotel restaurant is to our (European) taste not recommendable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great couple's getaway!"
The Gideon Putnam is a lovely, historic hotel in a beautiful, park setting. It is especially convenient to the Roosevelt Spa in the same park. Couches in front of fireplaces invite relaxing and reading with a nice glass of wine from the bar.Genuine Expedia guest review
Loved everything about it. We will go back for sure. It is in a lovely setting. A shuttle drove us downtown & to the spa. Our car never left the parking lot. Great food onsite. Our driver Rich gave us lots of great advice. The front desk staff was also very helpful. Plus it is pet friendly ! What more could you ask for !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Don't expect a 4 star hotel"
The hotel is a historic landmark, and it is overall nice but a bit run down. You definitely can not compare this hotel to other 4 star hotels in a bigger city. The best place is the sitting are in the lobby with the fireplaces. Rooms are ok, some stains here and there, bathroom is clean but very old set up.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Great Place to Stay!"
Very nice hotel, full of history. Surroundings, including the Avenue of the Pines, were breathtaking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
