The Gideon Putnam hotel in Saratoga Spa State Park resumed service on May 5 for the spring, summer and fall seasons.
The historic boutique hotel, which is operated by Delaware North’s parks and resorts division, will be open for stays Thursday through Sunday nights in May before opening seven days a week beginning May 31 (Memorial Day) through the fall.
The Gideon Putnam is set in the natural beauty of the 2,400-acre state park and is adjacent to Roosevelt Baths & Spa, Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC), Saratoga Automobile Museum, 27-hole public Saratoga Spa State Park Golf Course, and the world-famous Saratoga Mineral Springs.
The hotel offers a complimentary shuttle to downtown Saratoga Springs, a convenient 5-minute ride to the city’s vibrant shopping and restaurants. During race season, the property provides free shuttle service to Saratoga Race Course, less than 2 miles away.
Delaware North, which operates the hotel under a long-term contract with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, will once again implement its Rest Assured™ Commitment to Care comprehensive health and safety program. It includes re-engineered operating procedures to minimize contact risk and bolstered hygiene protocols aligned with guidelines of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
“We know people are looking to book vacations for the summer and fall, but there are also many who are ready to just hop in the car and get away for a few days,” said Jim McGrath, general manager of The Gideon Putnam. “Saratoga Springs and The Gideon Putnam are an ideal combination for an impromptu escape.”
The historic Roosevelt Baths & Spa, which Delaware North also operates for the state, is currently open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays through Mondays. The spa operation will move to seven days a week starting Memorial Day weekend.
The spa is following all New York and CDC guidelines, including enhanced cleaning. Masks or other face coverings are required to be worn by all guests and service providers.
