“Great place for a weekend getaway”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

Alot of great things about this hotel. The location is perfect for a night out on the town, many bars and restaurants are just outside the door. The rooms are beautiful, jetted tub, kitchenette, keurig, fireplace, and the bed was really comfortable. Evening lobby had live music and honor bar which was nice, the only thing I would suggest would be more mixers for the bar. Morning lobby had a great breakfast which is included in the room. The staff and their attention to detail is what really makes this hotel great. I emailed ahead of time that we had a celebration and would be arriving before the 5pm check in. They were able to check us in early and upgraded our room!!! Great service!!

Jefferson Clinton hotel is an old, traditional hotel with updated amenities and great service. The staff was wonderful and sought to be helpful and accommodating. The king room was a 2 room suite. The living area had a full kitchen (with a mini fridge), love seat, chair, and flat screen tv & dvr. There was another tv & dvr in the bedroom. The bathroom was spacious, closet is small but adequate for 2 for a weekend. The lobby had fruit, coffee, iced tea and ice water, newspapers, and DVDs available to take to the room. They also have bikes and helmets to borrow for free, as well as a free full breakfast. The rooms are also allergen-free with an air purifier. It is a great location in downtown Syracuse. Only suggestion is to add more mirrors in the room - perhaps one over the desk and a full-length door mirror.

I traveled to Syracuse for the first time on a business trip. I chose the Jefferson Clinton based on reviews on Trip Advisor and I couldn’t have been more pleased. They have complimentary valet, movies, breakfast, bikes and helmets and they will even deliver hot popped popcorn to your room free of charge. Everyone in the property went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and hassle free.
The hotel is in a safe neighborhood and walking distance from many shops, restaurants and coffee shops. It also has a very lively weekend crowd with a lot of bars close by (but still very quiet). My room happened to be really small, but it was perfect for me with a large TV and AMAZING shower (best shower in any hotel I have ever been in).
If I ever make it back to Syracuse there is no doubt I will stay at the Jefferson Clinton again, their service was on par with every 5 star hotel I have ever stayed at. I was extremely impressed.

Best service I've encountered. Took smallest room which was big with two rooms, king size bed, two TV's free DVDS with popcorn,games,etc. Full kitchen.. Parking included as well as free valet parking... Full good quality breakfast included. Coffee,tea,etc.and lemon and mint iced water available 24 hours. You take care of your own luggage and parking so you save on tips.

I've now stayed in all three boutique hotels in Syracuse, and while they're all good, I found this one the best, notable especially for a high level of service. It's a historic property, modernized to good standards, with its own small surface parking lot directly accessible from the lobby. It's situated at the intersection of Jefferson and Clinton Sts. (duh), at the edge of Armory Square, the "cool" section of downtown Syracuse. This is the neighborhood where SU students and locals come to dine and drink, but the hotel is off-center enough that street noise was not a problem for me. I recently booked a block of rooms as part of a business meeting I was holding in Syracuse, and everyone in the group spoke highly of the place. The hotel goes out of its way to loan out useful things free of charge: laptops, DVDs, umbrellas, bike helmets, and so on. There's free fruit on the front counter, and an above-average buffet breakfast is included in the room charge. On my out through the lobby, carrying two bags, I found the breakfast buffet chef (maybe he was an owner?) leaving his post to hold the door for me. Nice place.

Outstanding hotel. It appears that the interior was recently renovated and it shows - understated and elegant. I was upgraded to a "suite" style room and could not have been happier with it. I was on the 2nd floor at a street corner, but the well-insulated windows did not allow any street noise to bother my sleep.

Afternoon snacks/reception was well done, with quality offerings. Breakfast was much better than the usual.

This will be my preferred hotel in Syracuse.

We were in town for our college reunion and wanted to stay somewhere close to all the activity of Armory Square. The Jefferson Clinton Hotel was the perfect location. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the hotel was! The hotel and rooms were quaint and clean! Every person that worked for the hotel was friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay enjoyable. I highly recommend staying here and will stay here for any future visits to Syracuse!
