We love the GIdeon Putnam and everything Saratoga Springs has to offer. If you like to walk and hike, it's a great spot. If you like casinos there's one close by. The famous race track is a popular destination. Spas offer mineral baths and massages. And the dining is excellent, too.

Wow...thanks for the wonderful service and accommodations at the spa hotel! Your staff is very helpful with ideas and information about the hotel and local area. They really go out of their way! Alex at the font desk was awesome! The Sunday brunch, restaurant and bar are also great. Thanks!

Nice place to visit. Spa is the best. The town is also nice, with wonderful food and night life entertainment. The restaurant in the hotel is good, especially the breakfast. Spring and fall might be the best time to visit, since most facilities in the state park are closed during winter.

Professional conference at the Gideon was excellent. Guest rooms, conference facilities, setting and food were also great. The location in the middle of a park and close to the center of Saratoga was ideal.

My husband and I stayed at The Gideon Putnam for a few days prior to Thanksgiving. It is a quiet time of year in Saratoga, which is fine with us because we don't like crowds and we wanted to relax. If you are looking for a lot of things to do, this is not the time of year to be...

As people have mentioned in other reviews, this is a historic property. We came for 2 nights and explored Saratoga Springs. This beautiful property was cozy and private and we enjoyed the breakfast and diner at Putnam's. The spa is a great escape and our service was very friendly and nice. If you want a brand new hotel without unique...

Stay in style and comfort with a wealth of history at your doorstep. Sitting now in the foyer by a roaring fire knitting on this overcast afternoon but no mind. Our room is beautiful, large, clean and comfortable. Don't even give the age of the hotel a thought...better than any modern one is my opinion. Give it a try and...

I was so surprised to read the review below about the Thanksgiving buffet in 2014 because it was identical to what we experienced this afternoon in 2016!! You obviously didn't improve one bit in 2 years. Not a good track record. The same issues that the review below mentioned happened again today. People were confused as to where to go....

We are very fortunate that our Thanksgiving Grand Buffet is so popular - I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy it. We do serve a lot of people, but over the course of the day, not all at once. We took reservations for three seatings times this year, in an attempt to avoid the wait times of...
