The shower didn't have a plastic curtain so water spilled on the floor from the shower. I put a towel down to soak up the water between the shower and the toilet. I came back to the room during lunch and the some of towels folded on the rack were damp. If that wasn't bad enough, the bathroom was just... More

I spent three nights here this week and everything was great. I had a single bed room and it was large and comfortable. The bed and sheets were comfortable and the hallways quiet. Everything was clean and I found nothing to complain about. The only fault was dated gym equipment, but I didn't see anybody else use it in three... More

I checked in and went to my room. It was nice but the first time I flipped on the bed I came face to face with blood on the pillows, they obviously do not clean them between guests. I tossed them off the bed and inspected the sheets, they looked clean. I asked the front desk clerk at 6 am... More

This place was a stopover on a long journey and was on the pricey side, but after having stayed there I would definitely say it was money well spent. The room was large, clean and bright, the service was super friendly; even people we passed in the hall had a smile and a hello. The fitness centre was a great... More

This is a hotel that has gone through various transformations over the years, but the one constant has been the superior service. The Genesee Grand is not a new hotel. The years of wear make it a 3 to 3.5 star hotel - but I’ll give it 4 stars due to the superior service. On a recent stay in March... More

I've stayed at the Genesee the last four times I've visited my daughter at Syracuse University. I've found the accommodations perfect for my needs--very clean, friendly and efficient staff, good restaurant/bar. The beds are comfortable. I've only stayed in the "old" 6-floor building side; it has the feel of an old European hotel and is well kept--carpets are clean and... More

Very nice hotel - staff is really nice and courteous. One of the waitresses gave us lots of good tips about going to Armory Square. The hotel restaurant is quite good and reasonably priced. The room was very clean, and we were given an upgrade, despite making our reservation through a discounted site.
