I was in town for a business meeting at this hotel. The hotel is located in a state park next to hot springs so taking an evening stroll is a very pleasurable experience. The hotel itself is very overpriced, you would think you are in Yellowstone, not in a state park in upstate NY. Breakfast and lunch will each set... More

I am sorry to hear you were not completely satisfied with your stay. We do have a beautiful location here in the Saratoga Spa State Park. I would like to clarify a few things. We do not have hot springs, rather we (Saratoga) are known for our mineral springs - both for drinking, and for bathing at the bathhouse/spa. I... More

I have been staying at the Gideon Putman on a yearly basis for about 10 years now. Each experience has been a pleasurable one-friendly staff, comfortable and clean rooms and great conference areas for our conferences. I would have liked to have seen a green option for my bedding and towels to be reused, but if that is the biggest... More

Thank you very much for your years of patronage, and for sharing all the reasons that keep bringing you back. We actually have a linen reuse program here at the hotel. There should have been Water Conservation cards with instructions in your room - one in the shower, and a table-tent for bed linens. Thank you for caring! I will... More

The Gideon is fantastic for business or pleasure. The local area has much to offer and the hotel is nestled into Saratoga Springs in such a way that you feel isolated from the hustle and bustle of a town that boasts numerous shopping opportunities, a casino, a race course, and a vibrant night life full of restaurants , pubs, and...

This was our first trip to this beautiful property. Although the building is older it is well maintained and quaint. There are many walking trails to enjoy. Our only complaint was that the occupants in the room above us and next to us were quite rowdy and noisy most of the night. This was surprising for this type of hotel.

The Gideon is our favorite place to visit in saratoga. The grounds are so beautiful during all seasons. The spa has a beautiful relaxation room. And the hotel shuttle makes traveling into town for lunch,shopping dinner and night life so easy. They are so accomodating.

I love going to the Gideon Putnam. It is a quaint hotel. There are many things to do here for your family. The spa services are great. The restaurant is very nice and the food is delicious. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Would recommend staying here. Very close to shopping and the casino.

As always... as great stay at a beautifully historic hotel. The beds were comfy and the TV selection was great. While some things look "older", they were still very clean and made the stay even more unique.

We enjoyed the ambiance of the hotel and the relaxation at the spa. The breakfast in the morning was outstanding. This is not the first time for a visit. You can enjoy a nice walk around the grounds if the weather is good.
