Where to find a steam room?

steamy winter windowLooking ahead to winter, Kara emails:

Is there a place in the Capital District where one can visit a steam room? There was an unfortunate leak in my building that requires the 24/7 running of a de-humidifier. It is helpful in drying the water in the walls, but it also has resulted in early onset dry winter skin. I shudder at the idea of the long cold months ahead where this is a constant battle. I can't help but to think how great it would be to have some epidermal therapy in a steam room if there is such a place one could visit from time to time...

Got a suggestion for Kara? Please share!

most spas have steam saunas

The YMCA in East Greenbush has a steam room, as well as a dry sauna; I imagine that most of the other Ys built around the same time do as well.

The YMCA in Bethlehem.

There's one available to members at Best Fitness in Albany. Pro: $19.99 gets you unlimited use. Con: Clothing, at least a bathing suit, is mandatory.

Though that "con" usually ends up being a "pro," since it's not very big.

Cohoes Community Center has a steam room

East Greenbush Y has a hot tub, sauna and steam room.

The Roosevelt baths at Saratoga State Park allows use of their steam room with any treatment.

The only place that I know of is Complexions, but I think you have to have a service done.

Clifton Park YMCA has one, as well.

The Holiday Inn Express Downtown has a wet and dry room as well as a hot tub.

The Cohoes Community Center is closest to me in Troy AND offers a daily rate of $6 - I'm gonna be all over that. Thank you all for the suggestions!

A little late here, but doesn't the Steuben Athletic Club on Pearl have one?

I know some people get excited when they hear that some chain from outside the area is coming to the Capital Region, but I'm not one of them. Local businesses mean local dollars; the money stays here rather than going to a corporate headquarters far, far away. If Price Chopper is sold to an outside company - especially a company that answers to its stockholders more than its customers - that could have a huge impact.
