“great little spot in syracuse”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2010

Surprisingly nice. Was a little skeptical given there are no 4 star hotels in all of Syracuse but this was excellent. Was there for business but had my wife and 1 year old along to attend the fair as well. Great location, got an upgraded room upon arrival. Very nice neighborhood although we were there on a Sunday nite and the downtown appears to shut down on Sunday evening except for a few places so keep that it mind if you are looking to head out and be social. More expensive that the other places but worth the extra dough. Thanks again to Corinne and staff who took care of us including changing our room when we felt there was a slight odor in it.

This hotel was very nice for a one-night stopover and would've been perfect had it not been for the bloody air conditioner. It was WAAAYYYY too loud, cutting in and out all night. This made for a less than restful stay and I will not stay here again, even though I really liked everything else.

Dear SaturnGirlWisconsin:
Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to share your comments on TripAdvisor. We sincerely apologize about the problems with the noise from the air conditioner in your room. If you would be so kind as to email me at hotelstuff101@gmail.com to let me know which of our suites you stayed in it would be greatly appreciated. This will help us to prevent future occurrences with other guests by enabling us to quickly remedy the problem. I know how frustrating it can be when you cannot get a good nights sleep in a hotel and certainly do not want to see this happen again. Again, thank you for your comments and I look forward to hearing from you and being able to fix the problem. In addition, I am certain there is something that we can do to help compensate you and change your mind about staying with us again in the future. Kind regards, Steve Busch

The staff at the Jefferson Clinton is proud that their hotel is listed on the register of Historic Hotels. They wear pins that says this, and each room contains a book of all of the historic hotels on the list. The down side to this is, there are a lot of antiquated features of the hotel that date back to it's older design - one small elevator, slightly uneven floors, a very long stairway that encircles the elevator (making for a long walk downstairs). If you like this antique charm, you'll love the Jefferson Clinton. For me, it was a bit of a turnoff.

The staff, however, is fantastic. I'm not much of a luxury traveler, but the staff at this hotel sure made me feel like I was. I've never seen a staff at any hotel or any other place of business work so hard to keep their customers happy.

As for location, I take points away for it being in Syracuse, but it's a decent location. Around the corner is a nice block of bars and restaurants, and it's a very short walk from the famous Dinosaur Barbecue. I wouldn't stray too far from either of these locations, however.

The free breakfast was pretty expansive. They always had 3 to 5 hot entrees, plus the normal muffins, pastries, cereals, oatmeal, tea, etc. And the omelet chef was a great plus too.

One last thing to note - their check-in time is 5pm and their check-out time is 2pm. The late check-in is very strange, and a few guests checking in before us were visibly agitated about this (I believe they had been waiting for a while until a room was ready for them, which you don't expect to have to do at 3:30 in the afternoon). The plus side was, on our last day, we grabbed a free movie from their DVD collection, a free microwave popcorn that they provide, and relaxed in the hotel until 2:00 watching a movie. It was a nice way to end the trip.

Lots of restaurants in the area and although downtown it is convenient to the hughways and shopping malls. Desk staff enjoy their job and are very conscientous. My daughter loved the fitness centre.

We booked here for a stop on the way home after a stay in NYC. Having read reviews on this site and looking at photos on the hotel's own site, we were convinced that this would be a good stop. We took advantage of the internet special on their site, making it more reasonable than booking on expedia or somewhere else. The hotel greeting was very pleasant, and we were upgraded to a larger suite when the woman at the front desk saw our kids. The suite was wonderfully-appointed, thoroughly modern, and there was little to quibble about. We were given a great recommendation for a restaurant to walk to, that was superlative (Pastabilities - the name worried us, but the place and food were amazing). The neighbourhood was interesting, for Syracuse, and we were totally impressed.... until some partying in the suite next to ours awoke us at 3 in the morning. The walls were surprisingly thin/uninsulated. We finally decided to call the front desk, and an end to the merriment came soon after. So, we were happy that they did something about the problem. The complimentary breakfast was great, too. In the end, we were very impressed with this gem in Syracuse, and it would have been perfect if not for our noisy neighbours.

After a long journey it was a pleasant suprise to reach my room, so spacious with lots of facilities it was more like a suite than a traditional hotel room, really reasonable rates too.

This would be great for longer stays, clean large room, superb staff and not too big as to be impersonal.

Well done to the hotel for creating such a great environment.
