My dog and I checked into the Giddeon Putnam for 2 day midweek getaway. What a treat! The staff was so friendly. They gave so much love and attention to my dog. Everyone went out of there way to welcome us. We LOVED the hikes right out our door to see the springs. The history of the hotel and town...

I went to the Gideon Putnam over Mother's Day weekend. It was a wonderful stay; the hotel is beautiful and vintage, the staff were welcoming and professional, and the Spa was great!

The setting for the Gideon is simply beautiful. The building and grounds are just far enough away from downtown Saratoga to be peaceful and serene, yet close enough to enjoy the shopping and restaurants.

You have hit on one of our many advantages - we have a great location in a State Park, with so much to do within the park, and yet we are only minutes from downtown. Thank you for your great review.

We were stopping over at the Gideon Putnam Hotel en route to NYC from upstate NY. It was a bit like stepping back in time 100 years. The bed was very comfortable, and there was plenty of hot-water in the shower. Dinner was very good, and so was the coffee, although at breakfast it was weaker and less enjoyable.

I went for a Mother's Day weekend with my daughter and daughter-in-law. It is a 2 hour drive but will for sure be back often! I felt so wonderful after the bath and reflexology and the entire staff were so nice and professional.

I was at a 2 day seminar at the Gideon Putnam. The hotel was beautiful, the staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. The food was excellent. And the event ran very smooth. There was a shuttle available to take us into Saratoga, and picked us up whenever we were ready to return to the hotel.

Charming hotel, I was there on business and enjoyed my stay. Friendly staff and great food. Just be aware of a room near the elevator because you do hear the elevator shaft noise echoing from the bathroom.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I'm sorry about the noise of the elevator - it does not have the same technology as a more modern elevator. Hopefully there was no elevator traffic at night so you were able to get a good night sleep. Please come see us again.

The Gideon Putnam is a historic building in Saratoga Spring's state park. It is a beautiful place to relax, play golf, enjoy spa treatments, and their convenient shuttle bus can take you into town where there are fabulous shops and great restaurants!

Great place to revive and appreciate the natural world, shaped by tge aesthetics of FDR's New York State. Driving in along the Avenue of the Pines, seeing the many bikers and bird-watchers, as well as the gorgeous skies and horticulture of Saratoga Springs, one begins to feel alive again!
