Beautiful old hotel in the middle of Saratoga Park

Posted Feb 26, 2015
Cons: Our only complaint was the astringent smell in the hallways.
My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 5 day retreat at the Gideon Putnam during a snowy week in February. We have a soft spot for hotels with history and the Gideon Putnam did not disappoint! It's location right in the middle of the Saratoga Park made it the perfect location to enjoy outdoor winter sports like x country skiing and hiking, right at our doorstep. They even provided free snow shoes for the guests to use! We also enjoyed a great spa experience at the Roosevelt Spas right next door. The free shuttle service to downtown Saratoga was really convenient. We also enjoyed talking to the great staff in the restaurant/lounge/bar. Our only complaint was the astringent smell in the hallway. I think this may have been a temporary problem and it did not in any way diminish our enjoyment of the weekend. Thank you Gideon Putnam.

Spa weekend

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: Many of the fixtures and the underlining architecture are original. The upgrades that have been made give a fresh appearance to everything.
Cons: The shower/tub was a little too rustic for my taste, but you always have the option of taking a mineral bath at the spa.
Location: The spa is a stones throw away, as well as hiking and picnic areas. There were lots of families out enjoying the snow in the plentiful yards.
The hotel has kept the integrity of the history it holds while maintaining a clean and comforting environment.

Old but classy

This hotel may be old but it is worth every penny and the service is great. The food is high end, this is truly is a resort.

Room was old. Toilet had staining/chipping in it and my kids were afraid to go to the bathroom in it. Dust on towel racks. TV remote didn't work. Heater was extremely noisy. Elevators were old and very slow.

Wonderful experience !

Posted Oct 25, 2014
Pros: Enjoyed the old world architecture.
Cons: Work on the ramp to first floor too steep for handicap husband.
Location: Excellent local restaurants. The weather impeded many of our plans.
We had horrible weather ! The courteous staff made up for the lack of sunshine. We had lunch in their restaurant. Good food great service . A little disappointed in breakfast brunch. The place has old world charm. Spotless!
