This was one of the rare times my Priceline cheapness has let me down. I booked this through an "Express Deal", and our stay has me questioning if I'll take that kind of risk in Syracuse again. Which is sad, as the purpose of our trip was the admitted student event at the university-- and my son committing to Syracuse,... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times. Close to Syracuse a University, Destiny USA mall and Downtown. Lobby Is impressive and rooms are well furnished and have really comfortable beds.

Let's start with the positive: the beds are comfortable and the rooms are fine. I visit Syracuse 3-4 times a year, so I understand that there are not a lot of great options, but each time I visit, I have stayed at the Crowne. This will, most likely, be my last. I have seen both the service and attitude of... More

The staff was very friendly, rooms were updated/contemporary, mattress and pillows very comfortable, everything was clean and orderly, the bar and restaurant were nice and shuttle service to concert venue and train station very helpful. The hotel is very close to major highways, so book a room that is higher up. I stayed on 19 and it was perfect. I... More

Visiting my daughter at SU. Arrived earlier than I anticipated and not only did the staff get me an early check, they also worked hard to make sure they honored my request of a room away from highway noise. Although I could see the highway I think being on a higher floor made a difference because I was not bothered... More

Stayed here for a business meeting at the hotel. I am use to staying at Marriotts when I travel for business so this was a little different and may not be a fair comparison. This hotel is an older hotel. The Elevators are similar to the Marriott Marquis in NYC, you select your floor first using the keypads on the... More

Very clean and comfortable rooms. Easy to relax. Stayed 3 days, and enjoyed two nice dinners at hotel. Also used thier modern exercise room. Staff was very friendly and attentive to every detail. The covered garage was a big plus when 12" of snow fell.

I know, totally bland description right? Well, that's pretty much how I would sum up our stay. Not great, not terrible, just ok. I stayed here with my wife and infant son over the weekend and found the Crowne Plaza "acceptable". We didn't pay very much for the room - it was clean and modern and so no major complaints... More
