The word ‘spa’ comes from the Latin phrase, ‘sanus per aquam’ or ‘health by water,’” says Kimberly Rossi, director of the resort’s Roosevelt Baths & Spa. “The Gideon Putnam invites travelers to celebrate National Wellness Week at the Queen of the Spas, offering fresh air; healthy, creative cuisine; and the legendary, revitalizing waters of Saratoga Springs.”
R&R: Relax & Recharge At the Gideon Putnam, Wellness Weekmornings are filled with rejuvenating activities like yoga and nature walks, while afternoons are free for spa treatments, shopping and relaxation. Indulge in a massage and then soak in a warm mineral bath at the full-service Roosevelt Baths & Spa.
The region’s mineral-rich springs were sacred ground to Native Americans, who believed in their restorative powers. Since opening its doors in 1935, the landmark, 19,000 square-foot Roosevelt Spa has continued the tradition, drawing guests to “take the waters” and luxuriate in its naturally effervescent mineral baths.
Opportunities to recharge continue just outside the Gideon Putnam’s doors, where the National Historic Landmark state park spans 2,300 acres with rolling hills, golf courses and walking paths lined with towering oak and pine trees.
For a change of pace, hop on the hotel’s complimentary shuttle for a five-minute ride to historic downtown Saratoga Springs. Streets there brim with nineteenth-century charm as well as eclectic independent restaurants, galleries, bars and boutiques. Or, return to the resort for dinner at the full-service Putnam’s Restaurant & Bar, featuring contemporary cuisine made with local ingredients grown on certified organic farms and enlivened with herbs from the restaurant’s own garden.
The Gideon Putnam is itself revitalized, having recently completed a multi-million refurbishment of its guestrooms, spa, fitness center, restaurant and bar, lobby, entrance and business center. The 120-room National Historic Landmark Hotel is owned by the State of New York and managed by Delaware North through its Parks & Resorts Division along with venture partner Saratoga Casino and Raceway.
