I stay here anytime I go to Syracuse, which is where my fiancé's daughter attends college. The hotel is nice, friendly, includes a buffet breakfast, and most of all is in a great area called Armory Square. It's literally steps from shops, restaurants and bars.

Dropping off the city kid to Syracuse University for Freshman Move-in Day. Stayed at a most well-serviced, friendly, clean, efficient hotel in the downtown area of the city. There is parking beside the hotel and across the way if you're not first to grab a spot near hotel entry. We had 2 separate rooms, more than enough space for 2... More

This hotel is very clean and located in the center of downtown. Close to multiple restaurants and bars walking distance. The bed was very comfortable. The staff is friendly and knowledgable about the area. I will definitely be coming back.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. It has some perks: great downtown location, nice staff, good free breakfast, free self-service laundry, free video library. But it's an older hotel and it kind of shows. The rooms didn't feel very clean. The air conditioning is very loud but the windows are sealed so you have no choice because but to... More

The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful during our stay. The breakfast in the morning was delicious. However, the room we stayed in was gross. There was a huge stain on the blinds in the bathroom that I believe they tried to cover up by leaving the blinds open but when you leave the blinds open the hotel room across... More

My wife and I recently stayed at the Jefferson Clinton Hotel in Syracuse, NY. From the outside you would think it was an old, overpriced hotel in the historic district that was past its prime. However, once inside you will be very pleasantly surprised! The hotel is clean, remodeled and up to date. The staff is very friendly and helpful.... More

a cool non chain hotel. No cookie cutter rooms in this place, they are all a little different. A great breakfast and good coffee. The big draw is location, so many great restaurants and bars of all kinds within walking distance.

An overnight stop and we were delighted with the generous size of the rooms, the convenience of restaurants and shops and the gorgeous ladies at reception where nothing was a problem. The complimentary washing machine was gold for me, fast wifi topped off with a fabulous breakfast in a lovely setting, is a refreshing change from other chains who have... More

Stayed here one night and the property resembles a hotel from a 50s movie set. Staff is efficient and accommodating. One elevator, which requires a key card, which is for safety but not overly convenient, serves the entire hotel. I could imagine when its busy there will be long waits. The interior stairway is carpeted and is like a stairway... More
