Mr. Riley’s commitment to the restoration of the Hotel Syracuse is a testament to the role historic perspective has in our community’s revitalization.  Hotel Restoration, LLC, run by Mr. Riley, oversees the restoration of the Hotel Syracuse – without doubt one of the largest projects involving historic architecture that has ever been undertaken in Syracuse.  

Mr. Riley has worked with OHA to select historic images from the OHA Collections that will be used in decorating the Hotel guest rooms and public spaces. Mr. Riley has also created a gallery space in the Hotel for an exhibit showcasing the incredible history of the Hotel.  OHA is also collaborating with Hotel Restoration, LLC to feature historically-inspired gift items for the Hotel’s retail shop as well as the OHA Gift Gallery.
