Farewell Breakfast in The Arches Room at Gideon was AMAZING!

We had our Sunday Farewell Breakfast at The Gideon Putnam this past weekend in The Arches room after our wedding and it was 10/10! Angela was amazing to work with and it was absolutely the perfect ending of our magical weekend. Everyone loved The Arches room, because of how gorgeous it is in Saratoga Spa State Park! Those windows floor to ceiling are amazing, you see the trees and during this time of year you see all of the colors... just beautiful! We had the best time, truly. The food was very good, everyone was satisfied before their drive home. We really appreciate all of Angela and her team's help and hard work to accommodate us and our large group (95 people)!. Our Sunday Farewell Breakfast was exactly what we had envisioned and more! It was also very reasonably priced for how gorgeous the space is, the location, the food, etc. It was well worth it and I can't recommend it enough for a special event. You will not be disappointed in any aspect. Angela you are wonderful and so accommodating. Thank you, thank you x10000!

Wedding weekend perfection

The team at the Gideon Putnam went above and beyond to make our wedding weekend a wonderful experience for our guests - and us! We had a mix of local guests and folks traveling to be with us. The Gideon offered an amazing destination for everyone. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed the amenities provided by the hotel including a shuttle service, fireplace lounges in the lobby, coffee service, and an exceptional location in the heart of the Spa State Park. We hosted our ceremony, reception, and post-wedding brunch at the hotel. From management to front desk team, to catering, to housekeeping, to the awesome shuttle drivers, we experienced gracious customer service and professionalism. Stacie coordinated with all our vendors and the team at the hotel. She offered helpful advice and suggestions during our rehearsal and reception set-up. We are grateful for the memories we were able to make at The Gideon Putnam and highly recommend each aspect of this full service hotel - for events, or personal travel.

The Gideon Putnam is a beautiful place for a wedding or family event. I've captured numerous events there over the years. Their new ballroom is nicely updated and their outside views are stunning for photos. I highly recommend them for your venue location. OOTOphoto looks forward to working there again.
