More about the Hotel Syracuse
Listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places, the Hotel Syracuse is currently undergoing the largest restoration ever undertaken in Syracuse. It is scheduled to be completed this June and reopen as the Marriott Syracuse Downtown.
When it opened in 1924, the Hotel Syracuse was state-of-the-art and ran like a city within a city, housing a variety of restaurants shops, meeting rooms and services. Behind elegant walls and beneath marble floors, hundreds of employees staffed repair shops, huge kitchens and a maze of support spaces. The hotel’s Grand Ballroom, Persian Terrace, Rainbow Lounge and Cavalier Restaurant were among the city’s showplaces. For 80 years, the hotel hosted a wide variety of events that were woven throughout the social, political, and economic life of almost all Central New Yorkers . . . the true definition of a community landmark.
