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 But the hotel seems massive with rooms a bit outdated with no fridge or coffee in the room and no ice nearby.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

The Genesee Grande in Syracuse, New York is indeed grand.

Very nice, clean and comfortable. Excellent location especially if you have a student at SU or want to go to a game. Walking distance to the campus as well as restaurants, pubs and shopping. Always stay when in the area..

The Genesee Grand is a good choice if you're looking for a non-standard hotel wih attractive rooms, comfortable beds, and pleasant service. The lobby and common areas are tasteful though somewhat dark. The standard double rooms are small but efficiently designed; we upgraded to a suite and found it roomy but rather sparsely furnished; an extra chair would have been... More

I stayed here about 3 years ago and was in the tower and the room was very nice. This time the room was just average as I was on the other side. The bed was not as comfortable as I remembered and the pillows were not comfortable either. The bathroom did not have counter space so no place to really... More
