Hotel rooms themselves are average however the building is quite nice inside. Food from the restaurant is very good and I have never been disappointed. I would prefer if the hotel put some money into renovating their rooms, and then the place would really be something special.

Why would I go twice if I didn't love it the first time. From the front desk staff, to the servers in the fantastic plush lounge to the very nice clean room. If you are going to Syracuse, stay here, you will love it. Cheers

Okay, so this is "the best" hotel in Syracuse. The lobby and staff are fabulous. I've stayed here multiple times and I've never met a disgruntled employee. The suites across the breezeway are great, they're like small apartments, even the rooms across the breezeway are awesome. The rooms in the main part of the building with the lobby aren't so...

I attended a wedding at the church across the street. Many guests stayed the night at the hotel, where the reception was also held. I had a very spacious four room suite. The food was quite good for this sort of affair. This was a good start for a tour of the Finger Lakes wine country.

Tucked away in downtown Syracuse is the Genesee Grande Hotel. I've stayed there twice during business trips for a total of five nights. This is a very classy hotel with a beautiful lobby and a fine restaurant specializing in Tuscan style cuisine. The rooms are comfortable and impeccably clean and well-appointed. I would highly recommend staying there if your travels... More

We spent one night at this hotel as a little treat before the holiday season. We planned on doing the Lights on the Lake and also shopping at Destiny USA. We had a deal through Groupon which included a $25 restaurant credit for the 1060 Restaurant. We arrived after 2:30 and were told the only room that open at the... More

This is a lovely hotel and convenient to Syracuse and SUNY ESF. But the hotel seems massive with rooms a bit outdated with no fridge or coffee in the room and no ice nearby. The staff and food are excellent and the lobby very very nice. Solid but I nothing to write home about.

I was booked into the Genesee Grande by colleagues at the University of Syracuse. It's a little further from the campus than other hotels but still in a convenient location. Things didn't start entirely well when I had to wait almost 40 minutes for the shuttle bus (which, I was told, had got caught in traffic - in Syracuse, on... More

Was there two days, one night. King size suite. Have to be honest, had larger regular rooms in many hotels across the USA. King size bed in a small room with another tiny room containing a desk and a chair just outside the bathroom, thus a suite. Hardly. It is cold in Syracuse and really could not get the room... More
