The hotel is a bit old. Needs updating and maintenance. Found ants in the bed, but I'm just glad is not bedbugs. Came here with 2 friends to celebrate friend's bday, and we also booked a spa treatment with the hotel. We have a 9:30am treatment, and is scheduled to end at 10:30. The spa is about 10min walking distance...

I am very sorry to hear you were disappointed when you left The Gideon Putnam. Yes, we are a historic, 1935 hotel, set in a State Park. We take great pride in caring for this property, and have recently begun a major renovation. We have already completed the conference center and are moving on to corridors and guestrooms. This phase...

Very cool spot especially if you like historic venues. Lots of space and opportunities for experiences in nature. Also close to the main town center with a bunch of nice places to eat and shop. Quiet and quaint town.

Beautiful building and grounds and the staff was so welcoming and friendly. The bed was extremely comfortable and the hotel was very quiet at night despite a big wedding and a conference going on. Shuttle driver was extremely courteous.

Beautiful setting and excellent service. The historical and vintage feeling of the hotel is super charming. The rooms could use some maintenance/upgrade. The food is really good and the personnel very helpful and friendly.

I spent only one night here while attending a conference but now would like to return to take full advantage. The inn has kept the ambiance from its past while being up to date in terms of amenities. The staff was impeccably courteous, my room was clean and comfortable. I hear some rooms are really small so if that's a...

Historic, quirky hotel that does a great job of bringing modern amenities to life. Even though I was there on business, we were made to feel like special guests. There are beautiful grounds, wonderful, hard-working staff, and an AMAZING spa. Take a bath, people, just go and take a bath.

Stayed at the Gideon Putnam for a conference. The staff went above and beyond, and did a fabulous job. Conference center was very nice for sessions and vendor displays. Breakfasts and lunches were served in the garden room with additional seating available in adjacent small rooms and indoor and outdoor patios. Food was far better than at most conferences I...

This is a charming building surrounded by walking trails. Very pretty place for a wedding and close to many things going on in Saratoga. The staff was very accommodating. I would like to return and try the spa and Sunday brunch.
