Loved this hotel! Traveling across the country, I booked a room here through the Choice Hotels app. Judging by the photos, I wasn't quite sure what we were getting ourselves into. Even when we pulled up to the hotel we were kind of unsure about staying here. It looked empty and kinda creepy (we found out later this was because... More

Stayed here for business this month and found it to be an excellent spot to stay. A grand hotel that literally could not be built today. The reception both in and out was extremely efficient. The lobby is spectacular. Our group of three had a drink in the bar before heading out to the Tailor and Cook restaurant. Mike, the... More

We are originally from Utica, NY and every year return to visit our families for the Christmas holidays. We always stay at Hotel Utica. The rooms are very large and in great condition, although the pillows could be more comfortable. The lobby is absolutely beautiful, always decorated for the holidays. The staff is very nice to our large group and... More

Check in and out was a breeze. Lobby is gorgeous with the tree and marble floors. The hotel has an incredible historic feel, my kids and I walked around and admired the carvings and art. The room was spotless and clean. It was the perfect stop for us for our overnight taking "the polar express" with that said I wouldn't... More

Visited for only one night with my son and his basketball team. Beautiful hotel ..the interior decor was very traditional Victorian kinda lol. Bedroom spacious, beds very comfortable and clean big washroom. Buffet breakfast was great ...delicious food. I was very satisfied and highly recommend this hotel. Price was reasonable but I received group special.

This hotel is in middle of everything, the location is unmatched. The rooms are huge and comfortable, the hotel lobby is like a museum! This is a historic site and it shows, very grand and elegant architectural details.

My department book my group at the Hotel Utica after reservations at another near by hotels fell through for a training we were suppose to attend 10 miles away. Before I even drove up here, I google the hotel and learned that the hotel may be possibly haunted. It is an older hotel and it has an old feel. You... More

The lobby is absolutely beautiful. The room was large and clean. The amenities are a bit outdated but for the price it was all acceptable. The best thing is the Hotels location for one reason - just around the corner was a wonderful block of amazing local food shops. A wonderful restaurant - The Tailor and the Cook - the... More

The lobby of this place is right out of the 1920s "grand hotel" era -- it has a tile mosaic floor that's probably original to the building, huge chandeliers and a dramatic staircase. Once you get upstairs to the rooms, though, this could be any other older, basic hotel. The room was a little run-down looking with an old style... More
