The hotel is very centrally located and we were able to walk most places. The staff were great. The breakfast was great with an omelette bar. The rooms were comfortable, I especially liked the nice sized bathroom.

We had seen this hotel when we were roaming around Syracuse the previous time that we had been there and remarked on how upscale it looked and how wildly convenient it was to the things we are interested in. So, when I booked tickets to Amy Schumer - I knew just where I wanted to stay. Got a good rate...

I stayed at this hotel with my two teens last Sunday night as we were checking out Syracuse Univ. The people that work there are ALL exceptional. I had a choice of many hotels (in fact, I am a Hilton Honors person and Marriott Points person) but I chose this hotel based on it's reviews and location (and made-to-order omelette...

Great mini suite with an efficiency kitchen and sitting area off the bedroom. Terrific location in the Armory Square district of Syracuse close to restaurants, shops and bars. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast buffet included on weekends.

This was our third stay at this property over the past couple of years visiting SU with our children and we have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. It is in a great part of the city, it has a unique feel from the typical hotel chains. It has early 1920s charm with today's amenities. The staff could not be nicer...

Had a great experience with my team, mixing business with some fun. They took care of all our needs and catered to us at a high level of service. Parking was easy, and even though not full service, they were able to get food to us through local eateries.

I travel to Syracuse for work 6-8 times a year (from NJ). In the beginning - 5 years ago - I tried some of the other hotels but none of them compared to the JC. It's my home away from home. The hotel itself is small and boutique in nature. This isn't one of your big, cold chain hotels. The...

We stayed at this hotel over Columbus Day weekend to visit Syracuse University. It is an old historic hotel and on the Historic Hotels of America registry. It is beautiful and right in the middle of downtown. We got the presidential suite, which is not what it sounds like. It is just a larger version of their regular suites. It...
