How to Get There
This was my first stay at the historic Gideon Putnam, but it will not be my last. It is hard to restore/update historic buildings without losing any charm or grandeur. Whomever was in charge of updating this classic building deserves a standing ovation. From the classy lobby and front desk, to the marble and tile in the bathrooms, so much of its original beauty remains.
The front desk staff were nothing short of perfect! Friendly, funny, and very helpful. We held a 2 day conference at this hotel and everything went very well. The AV team was on top of all equipment and assuring it was up and running at all times. The space was beautiful, a little warm, but this time of year is impossible to get a perfect combo of air/heat, so I can’t really count it as a negative. The buffet meals were delicious, especially breakfast. The catering staff was also friendly and very helpful.
Finally my room... I was lucky to get one of the end rooms with an attached screened in porch. What a bonus!! It was the perfect spot to gather at the end of the day and enjoy some down time. The porch had plenty of furniture and the staff even had a small portable heater that we plugged in for a little warmth. I imagine this porch in the fall has stunning views of the Saratoga Park. If you are looking for a nice getaway or place to hold an event, I highly recommend The Gideon Putnam.
Stayed for a couple nights midweek to enjoy the spa. Great location for the park and spa, if your looking for more action in town stay there because you have to drive in. Breakfast included was limited but very good. We would stay here again next time in town.
We are kind of nit-picky about lodging. Have to say clearly that Gideon Putnam was a very pleasant experience for a 3-night stay in late winter. Clean, spacious, well-organized, and heavy historical ambiance was very welcome.
Of course, it is a historic building and the resorty-destination history has been very well preserved. And in our room was fast easy wi-fi, a rich choice of cable TV channels, and amazingly convenient access to all things Saratoga, especially the Park. Walked out the door to miles of paved and off-road walking trails.
Highlights: Cleanliness, quietness, food service at Putnam's, technology, and problem resolution (a neighboring room had a barking dog, but it was silent after we brought it to attention of management, which we deeply appreciated).
We were in room 237, a standard porch room with a relaxing view of the park, trees, small wildlife, sunsets, and park users walking about. It was warm, but could be made comfy easily by swinging the porch French doors open or closed. The room arrangement was a real highlight - giving us tons of space due to a large closet and good selection of practical furniture without being "too much."
Front desk, lobby, and housekeeping staff were all attentive and respectful, helpful and accommodating.
We just finished up an event for work...the rooms were very clean and comfortable while maintaining the historic charm of the hotel and surrounding buildings in Saratoga. Our meals were amazing and offered a nice variety. All of the staff members were outstanding!
We stayed here while visiting my son who was living nearby while in the Navy. Amazing property, so many things to do and see right on site, such a relaxing place. Hotel was beautiful and conveniently located!
