Looking at license plates when whenever we are in Syracuse, it looks like most of the out of state visitors are from Canada who are in town for the shopping. We fit into this demographic, and are writing this review with that in mind.
The hotel itself is good. It's relatively brand new, and the rooms are clean, modern (flat screen TV) and spacious. We got a room with a king bed. I think all the rooms are suites, and ours had a small desk with a sitting area (which had a couch and coffee table). There was a flat screen LCD TV (32 or 40" I think) that could be turned to face either the sitting area or bed. As the TV wasn't built into any fixtures, it was easy to hookup our laptop to it (with HDMI).
For the price we paid ($150+tax via HotWire for 2 nights, a Fri and Sat), we were very happy. Usually for this price, we get an older hotel that's not as clean (probably because it's just older). The breakfast was typical as far as similar hotels go: waffle station, buffet tray egg and meat (1 option for each), pastries, breads, yogurt, coffee/tea, cereal, etc. Housekeeping was good with getting rid of our extra garbage (shopping packaging) and did everything else as expected. Staff in general were friendly and nice.
The only downside is the location (but not really a downside... location just isn't great, it's ok). It's right off the I-81 which is good, but as this hotel is in Cicero it's further away from the places we usually go to in Syracuse compared to hotels in Syracuse (and East Syracuse). These include Heids of Liverpool, Dinosaur BBQ and Carousel Mall (now called Destiny USA).
Overall though, assuming we can get a similar price ($150+tax for two nights), we would not hesitate to stay here again.
