“New and Nice location”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

This hotel is only a few months new but is in a great location with restaurants and nice shops within walking distance. They offer valet parking and it was only 10. There's also garage parking as well. Staff was very friendly and helpful both at the registration desk and the cafe.

I would definitely book another stay here .

Great hotel that just opened a few months ago and is connected to a Residence Inn. All new furnishings and everything is very clean. Rooms are nicely appointed and extra spacious. Nice sized fitness room, with a small pool adjacent. Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast in the Bistro is high quality. Two minuses - although the beds are new, they are on the cheap side and so not comfortable. Also, valet parking is the only option due to limited space in the garage, but the valets are quick to bring cars around. A real plus is the location - within walking distance of Armory Square where there are plenty of restaurants and pubs. If you want to stay downtown and be close to the night life, this is the hotel to stay at.

I just checked out of this hotel, where I pre-paid for two rooms through Orbitz. When I got home, I found that they have re-billed my charge card for one of the rooms, and another $40 charge showed up on my statement. When I called the hotel a very condescending desk clerk said it was "standard practice" to charge anywhere between $20 and $80 dollars for "incidentals" to guests when they check in, which are then "reversed" within 24 hours after you check out. Though nothing was said at check-in about this "standard practice." I have travelled all over the world and never have I encountered this. Simply astounding. The other additional room charge, the clerk refused to address, and then hung up on me when I asked to be transferred to the Marriott business office.

I am a member of Marriott Rewards and have stayed with them many times. Never have I encountered anything like this. If you prepay a room through a third party, make sure you ask about these so-called "incidental charges" when you check in. Nothing like being billed for a room twice, and then other little hidden charges showing on your account.

This is a new hotel - they've only been open 7 weeks or so. Most of the staff are very nice - but they lack training and experience. Marriott needs to do a better job preparing the staff for customer service when they open new hotels.

I really liked this hotel, and am giving it a higher rating because the ONE issue i had was out of their control. I have to say out of my last 200 hotel nights, this was the worst night sleep i got due to the middle of the night dumpster noise. It started around 3:30, lasted until 5:30, and was just bad. If you stay here you need to ask for a NON street side room for sure.

Other than that this was standard Marriott Courtyard fare, new hotel, so everything was nice and clean.

The area around the hotel is good and bad, depends how far you wander. If you stay close to the Armory Sq area, it is safe and there are plenty of good restaurants.

The staff was very friendly and helpful.

For those looking to be near SYU, it is about 1.5 to 2 miles away - so not really walking distance.

Room Tip: stay on non street side

First I should say that the staff at the hotel were very nice, especially the woman at the coffee bar. But at 3:30 in the morning I woke to the loud sounds of dumpsters being emptied. And I was on the 5th floor. I heard from others I was traveling with that they also had the same problem. One person I was with complained hoping to get some bonus points, but was not offered anything. I didn't bother complaining about the noise, but would check on whether this is a continuing problem before staying there again.

Went on a college tour weekend up in the Syracuse area and stayed one night at this location downtown. Nice, safe area and very convenient from several top rated restaurants from Diners,Drive and Food Network. Right across the street from an Irish Pub and around the corner to Pastabilites and within walking to the Dinosaur BBQ.

Room was large with two doubles and the four of us had plenty of room - two teens.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 7th floor and it overlooked the busy street with no noise

I was in town for one night for a business trip in Syracuse. I work in clothing sales so I needed to stay in town so that my store was in walking distance. My room was very clean and the next morning when I had some time to kill I spent a few hours working on my computer in the lounge. The gentleman working at the front desk was very sweet and offered me a bottle of water, free of charge. I was very happy with my stay, and will definitely stay here again!
