The Jefferson Clinton is no cookie-cutter chain hotel. It's a historic building, beautifully updated to offer all the modern comforts. I've stayed there several times on business trips to Syracuse. A special highlight: the excellent breakfast buffet with made-to-order omelets. For lunch and dinner, there are dozens of restaurants within easy walking distance, and a few of them deliver. Room...

I stayed at this hotel while traveling for business. The hotel is old and very nice. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. The hotel does not have a restaurant on site, which was the one disappointing thing, but there are a few restaurants within walking distance. The hotel does have a great breakfast buffet.

Many members of our family travelled to Syracuse our oldest nephews wedding. We all stayed at the Jefferson Clinton. The staff was professional, friendly and always willing to go out of their way to help out. The rooms are suites with kitchenettes. There is no restaurant but do provide a very nice breakfast buffet each morning. The location is right... More

What a great hotel. From the friendly staff to the wonderful breakfast why would you stay anywhere else? After a long day it's so nice to come back and sit outside watching the magnificent sunset. The Shops as well as restaurants are easy to walk to. If you are looking to stay in Syracuse look no further.

Stayed one night in August, 2016. This is an old hotel that has been pleasantly refurbished. The room (1000) was very small and would not have accommodated a couple. The full-sized bed was very comfortable. The bedside alarm clock-radio was old and barely functional but there was a wakeup service. The main disappointment was the breakfast: scrambled eggs, sausage and... More

I have only one reservation about this property: no kitchen on-site. They bring breakfast into the lobby, and do complimentary hors d'oeuvres/wine at happy hour. For anything else you're on your own. The good news is that there is no shortage of other options in a 2 block radius, but on business travel sometimes 5:00 AM room service is a... More

We normally stay at name brand hotels, but because of the proximity to the Oncenter we chose to stay here. We are extremely happy with the staff, and lodging. 24 hour free coffee, and free hand made omelets and breakfast are amazing. I just have to say again, the staff at the front desk are amazing. I want to go... More

My husband & I found ourselves in Syracuse NY for one night. It's at one end of the finger lakes & our initial research didn't yield too many exciting options for places to stay or things to do. However we were pleasantly surprised to find that not only was the hotel just fabulous, but the immediate area was full of... More

Overall the stay was enjoyable. The hotel does seem to have a bit of an identity crisis. It tries to strive for service excellence here and there but is constrained by 3 star facilities and perhaps staff training. Considering the location and the facility the published rack rates are way off the scale. To be fair the rates available to... More

Very accommodating! Visited Syracuse for the annual blues festival booked room back in January. Jefferson Clinton overbooked and set us up at the Marriott as their guests!! No charge ! Went there for breakfast, and looks like a very nice hotel!! I would always consider this hotel when coming to Syracuse!!
