This is a great place (I think the only place) to enjoy the mineral bath waters in Saratoga Springs. If you can get past the institutional (authentic) decor, appreciate this 1930s establishment for what it is and once was. Don’t be alarmed by the rusty...More

Don't go to Saratoga Springs and leave without a massage and mineral bath. The Roosevelt is "old school." Old tubs using a combination of hot water and the naturally carbonated spring water. Take your time and relax in the quiet area. Massage and bath prices...More

This is like stepping back into history when 'taking the waters' was what the doctor prescribed! You get your own private bath for one hour with a deeper tub filled with the healing spring waters. My daughter and I did this and took a tour...More
