The Jefferson Clinton Hotel in Syracuse's Armory Square is a classic, neat looking old building with nice new looking rooms and lobby! The building itself looks a lot like the Hotel Utica in Utica, NY which was built in the early 1900's. These old buildings take you back many years to a much different time and place. The breakfast is... More

I was visiting from Toronto and had the pleasure to stay here. From the staff to the free breakfast buffet and wonderful perks (free movie rental, popcorn, fruits, etc) this stay was amazing! I only stayed 2 nights but they never failed to deliver great customer service (both morning and evening staff). I will definitely be back and strongly recommend... More

I recently came through Syracuse on business. Had no idea about the City and wanted to stay in a place centrally located with access to local bars, restaurants etc. Great Location: Two blocks from the best bars and restaurants in town. Al's Wine and Whiskey is awesome and a block away. University is walkable and cab back is about 10... More

First - the street construction call be a pain, but the hotel is worth it. Old hotel with modern features. The only rooms available were with two double beds and kitchenette. BIG rooms. Couldn't open the windows so had to rely on central air/heating. Comfy beds. There is an Asian Steakhouse next door with is convenient and good. See separate... More

I recently traveled through Syracause for business. I chose the Jefferson Clinton Hotel via the app Hotels Tonight. I arrived at 6:45 in the evening - just in time for the hotel's lovely check in social hour. They were in the process of cleaning up the wine and cheese, but graciously stopped and encouraged me to help myself and enjoy.... More

Staff are friendly, hotel has old-world charm, rooms are comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Hotel located in neat part of town. Excellent choice if you are passing through Syracuse or looking for a safe and happy place to crash. Kid friendly.

I stayed overnight at the Jefferson Clinton. The construction happening around the hotel was annoying but the stay itself was great. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with dinner suggestions. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. I wish the bathroom had enough toiletries for two. It is nice that a breakfast buffet is provided... More

I stay at the Jefferson Clinton every time I travel to Syracuse. Before finding this hotel I had stayed at a few other big name hotels but none compare to the Jefferson Clinton. It isn't that large, but I prefer it that way. It is in a good location, I usually park my car and leave it in the lot... More

I just finishing spending five nights at the Jefferson Clinton. It is "average" at best! There is no restaurant on-site and no bar on-site. The location is by Armory Square. There are a "ton" of bars nearby and some good restaurants. Lemon Grass is very near and very good but it's pricey. They do have a breakfast bar and "cooked... More
