The Hotel Utica was a gem in the history of Utica and you can still see the shine in many of its features, especially it's grand lobby. Time has not always been kind to this hotel, and it recently changed ownership. We've stayed there three times and in August 2016 we could see signs that things are moving in the... More

We didn't research reviews, just looked at on line, our fault. This hotel is in major transition, its just been taken over by a big chain. I hope they really commit to investing in remodeling. If not for the general manager, Jessica Shumway, whom is phenomenal at her job this review wouldn't be so kind. It's a great location cause... More

This past weekend we attended a family wedding reception held in the lobby of the Utica Hotel. We, along with several other family members, chose to stay overnight at the hotel after the reception.

We stayed here because it was the only available hotel within driving distance of Cooperstown on Hall of Fame Induction Weekend. They're proud of the fact that Judy Garland and Jimmy Durante both stayed and performed in this hotel.

We landed here by accident. We were driving back to Massachusetts from a trip to Niagra Falls and wanted to take the leisurely scenic route home. We were in no hurry and wanted to stop along the way.

Stayed 4 nights in early July. Other hotels in the area were double the price. Room was spacious and clean. Wifi was great. Breakfast buffet was awesome. Obviously not your brand new hotel but was an excellent hotel for a great price. Several restaurants in downtown walking distance as well.

This hotel was reasonably priced, clean and has a lovely, historic lobby. The room was large and clean but certainly no frills! The restaurant was fine, but was surprised the bar didn't have tonic! The breakfast was similar to what you get at other chain hotels. All and all... A good place to stay if you are not expecting new!... More
