This is our favorite hotel in the Utica area. It is very popular and one must book early. It is a beautiful venue and there is usually a wedding here on the weekends. Everything is just a bit more upscale than hotels in this price range. Rooms are very spacious with refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Towels are nice and... More

We got this deal through Priceline. Beautiful hotel! We were a little leery when we arrived. The area around the hotel is under developed or utilized. You can see that this hotel was a grand hotel in its hey day. The lobby is clean but, definitely needs updating. We were at the front desk about 10 minutes when finally a... More

Spent the night here while passing through for a stop at Cooperstown on the way to Boston. Was very happy with our choice. Place is very old school with lots of character. Clean, comfortable, convenient, and reasonably priced. Breakfast buffet included which was quite good as well. Not the standard continental type it has multiple fresh hot items. Would definitely...

We had a wonderful experience at the Hotel Utica. The individual rooms aren't luxurious but they were very clean and the furnishings were nice. The hotel lobby and public areas were absolutely beautiful. All of the original historic charm was on full display- gorgeous woodwork, mosaic tile floors, and classic crystal chandeliers. It was like taking a step back in... More

This hotel is very elegantly decorated. The main lobby is very warm and welcoming. The rooms are quiet, spacious, and very comfortable. The bar and restaurant were a great place to relax at the end of the day and the breakfast bar was outstanding. For being a historic building, Hotel Utica was better then some of the newer hotels I've... More

Stopping over on a road trip between New York and Canada, and it was a pleasant surprise to find this Historic hotel complete with a very grand lobby when we decided to stop for the night. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and while the hotel was busy (convention in town) the property was very quiet and laid back, it... More

This hotel is over 100 years old with lovely ornate ceilings and columns. The property has been updated but the historic charm maintained to the extent possible. The hotel is a great value for a visit to Rome also as the Hampton Inn was highly overpriced. Before booking, I checked the prices at the Hampton Inn, Rome where our office... More

I was amazed at the beauty of the Hotel Utica. I didn't expect the grandeur of the lobby. There were many Tiffany lamps around. Although I read the little posts about the building, I would have certainly paid to have someone tell me about the history of the building. Even if you don't stay here, walk in and enjoy the...

The hotel was very charming and I loved all of the history. There was a nice, large lobby. Our room was very spacious. The rate included breakfast. We were there to attend a football game for Utica College. several of the players families stayed at the hotel and they took great care of us.
