The Gideon Putnam Hotel is a stately five-story Georgian Revival-style hotel, named after Gideon Putnam, one of the original settlers of Saratoga Springs. First opened in 1935, the hotel’s 132 rooms “still maintain a spare, minimalist elegance, with cream and mint touches and sturdy teak furniture” (Conde Nast Traveler).
Since the 1930s, the hotel’s main draw has been the mineral baths at its famous Roosevelt Spa, named after President Franklin Roosevelt, whose personal experience with hydrotherapy while battling polio led to its construction. The on-site venue Putnam’s Restaurant and Bar offers rustic yet elegant dining options, including a decadent Sunday brunch.
The hotel is located in Saratoga Spa State Park, surrounded by more than 2,000 acres of natural beauty, where guests can hike, bike and explore. Other attractions within walking distance include the National Museum of Dance & Hall of Fame. The downtown shopping district, filled with lovely boutiques and shops tucked between eclectic restaurants and bars, is within a few minutes' drive.
