Reviewed 29 April 2016

Beautiful place to stay, lot's to do around for your pleasure. I was told the Spa is one of the best, the service is great. So close to the Casino where I like to go, The outside has lot's of running trails that some of you can't get enough of.

Good deal. Nice grounds. Friendly staff. The casino is nearby and easy to get to. Countless great places to eat in Saratoga especially " 15 Church" for supper and the "Triangle Diner" for breakfast. The "track" is great in the summer.

Relaxing, great atmosphere, wonderful Sunday brunch... plus close to Saratoga and all sorts of activities. We only had one night to stay there so we checked in early, saw the sights of Saratoga, including the automobile museum. Then went to dinner at the Old Bryan Inn. Came back and spent a relaxing evening in our room. Slept in and went...

I stayed at the resort recently for a conference. I loved that the hotel was in the park with walking and biking opportunities & close to Downtown. The staff was friendly and accommodations were clean and comfortable.

On approach, the Gideon looks grand and well maintained. However, as beautiful as the Hotel is architecturally once inside it is very tired and worn. If we hadn't gotten a good deal on Trip Advisor I would have been very disappointed. I will say the staff was very attentive and the dinner we had in the dining/bar was surprisingly good....

Thank you for choosing The Gideon Putnam. Caring for a historic Grand Dame is eternal, and I assure you, we are never without multiple, major projects. Starting late Summer and into next year we will be renovating the guestrooms, corridors, lobby, meeting rooms and conference center/ballroom. I'm sorry you were disappointed, and hope you will return to see the changes...

The Gideon Putnam was such a treat. The hotel is grand and well kept. The setting is so relaxing that you don't even need to leave the park area. The spa was a great way to decompress. The hotel has a shuttle to take you into Saratoga Springs and pick you up so there is no need to use your...

I had no idea that I would find this historical hotel with such history upon entering a state park. I had the most fabulous time. It brought me back to nature. There are so many things to do such as biking, jogging, golfing, concerts etc. The spa feels as though you are back in Europe when only the rich could...

The Gideon provides a beautiful setting that you won't get anywhere else. The second you pull into the parking lot you will feel relaxed and comfortable.
