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?

Imagine if a mixed use development - apartments, townhouses, restaurants, offices, a park - were built on the Rensselaer riverfront, and people on both sides could go to work and go out in either Albany or Renss, just by walking to a gondola station? If people had reason to traverse the Hudson - in both directions - for a reason other than commuting or getting to/from the train station, a gondola could be an awesome (and financially self-sustaining) idea, that also cuts down on the need for parking. ...
