Booked this as part of a niagara to New York road trip, I like to go to places that maybe average British tourists go to but was getting a tad worried when everybody kept saying " Scranton-what you going there for?!". Needn't have worried, hotel was better than expected from the stunning lobby right through to the great night we spent in Trax bar. Have no idea why people call it shabby, it's an old building and extremely well kept. Our room was huge with great storage and a nice view over the town. Beds were amazingly comfortable and the linen lovely.
We were lucky enough to meet Mr G who instigated the restoration of the building when it had been used by homeless and drug users.
This hotel was the same price as we paid the night before at super 8 in ithaca and I would not hesitate to return.
Scranton itself was quiet but lovely with a fab courthouse and green. We had a few drinks in the Bog (great little dive bar) and a reasonably priced Thai meal next door.
We hope to be back for Mr G 's st Patrick's party!!
