Stayed for three days for business, and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Excellent amenities included, from free valet parking to complimentary breakfast complete with omelet station to fresh fruit on the counter, this is a fantastic hotel. Avoid the new places downtown, and stay here. Recently renovated, the hotel has great character, and is will staffed... More

First time staying here, the hotel lived up to the reviews. Centrally located with nice views. Was placed in a junior suite that was beautifully appointed. The kitchenette is stocked with dishes and utensils. Every bathroom has a mini rubber ducky in them. The living room and bedroom had large screen televisions. The service is amazing. You can borrow a... More

It's fun and increasingly difficult to stay in a hotel which has some character and a unique place in the local landscape, so it was a pleasure to find the Jefferson Clinton. It's an elegant building with stylish furnishings. The location is great, near lots of nice independent shops, bars and restaurants (ie not a ghetto of cookie cutter Starbucks/Subways).... More

Great central location, very nice and helpful staff, cozy rooms (the air purifier/ humidifier made it feel very comfortable and relaxing... a nice touch), fast free wifi, delicious hot breakfast, and valet parking is a bonus. The downsides are that many toiletries/ personal care items are not provided in the room and you need to call front desk to ask... More

My 2nd stay here. I stayed here one night 1967 before my military physical the next morning. The US Government and my local Draft Board put me up here when being drafted for the Viet Nam war. Well the place looks a lot better these days. I also slept better this time around because I knew I was going home... More

Dear BurnWash, Thank you for choosing our hotel and leaving such a nice review. I truly appreciate your kind words regarding our staff. It sounds like you had a lovely visit to Syracuse. I do apologize for the cold breakfast- as it turns out the thermostat was not working properly and has since been replaced. I'm so sorry we overlooked... More

Great spot in Syracuse. Lemongrass the restaurant next door has great food and spirits. Sit at the bar and take recommendations from the bartender. DVD collection and popcorn is a nice touch. rooms could use a little refresher.

I occasionally have to travel to Syracuse for work, and I would never stay anywhere else but the Jefferson Clinton. It's a beautifully kept older building in downtown Syracuse with old school charm and all the amenities you could want for a business stay. It's right in the heart of Armory Square, lots of shopping, restaurants and bars are a... More

We stayed here for a weekend while attending a wedding on the finger lakes. We arrived late on Friday night and checked in quick and easy. The grand old hotel is easy to find in the middle if downtown, and with valet parking included in our room we didn't need to worry about anything. The room was spacious and comfortable... More

Our family stayed at the Jefferson Clinton Hotel while bringing our son to a pre-freshman summer program at Syracuse University. After a recent disappointing stay at the Residence Inn at Armory Square, we did our research to find the best hotel in the area. Customer reviews pointed us to the Jefferson Clinton.  Since the summer program is six weeks long,... More
