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... More

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.

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.

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.... More

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.

Such a lovely, romantic old hotel with a well-trained and professional staff. The hotel is located inside the State Park. The rooms are small and older as befits a turn of the century hotel, but they are clean, wonderfully quiet, with comfortable beds are deep tubs. Breakfast on the patio during racing season is my fondest memory, but an off-season... More

The room was very comfortable but a little dated. They try to be a fancy hotel but are limited by the existing room and infrastructure. Breakfast is just ok and cost an extra $20 or $25 per person. We decided to eat elsewhere in the future.

There are things we can not change because of our historic status, but we have begun a major renovation. The ballroom is already complete and we will be moving on to lobby, meeting rooms, guestrooms and corridors. I am sorry your breakfast was only ok.

This hotel is set in the heart of Saratoga State Park. There are several terrific museums nearby, gorgeous hiking and running trails, spas, and natural beauty. An outstanding farmer's market is held on Saturday mornings and is well worth a visit. We had an excellent time at the Gideon Putnam.
