My husband, my son and I had a wonderful one night stay at the Jefferson Clinton Hotel. First of all I have to say thank you to the incredible staff. Everyone (and I mean everyone) was incredibly helpful, courteous and friendly. All questions were answered in a helpful and friendly manner. Every time we passed an employee we were greeted with a smile and a "Hello!". Their friendliness created an extremely congenial and comfortable atmosphere in the hotel.
The hotel itself is just beautifully maintained. It is a wonderful mix of the original architecture and many modern features. We had two huge rooms. The first room was a combination kitchen/dinette/office/living room. The kitchen had a fridge, microwave, dishwasher, cabinets and a dinette table and chairs. One corner of the room had a huge office desk and office type chair. The rest of the room was a living room with a sofa bed and flat screen tv. The bedroom had a queen bed, closet, clothes drawers, comfortable chair and another flat screen tv. The bathroom was spacious and had soft fluffy towels and luxurious soap and shampoo products. All rooms were extremely clean and well kept. As for parking, we were able to park our car in the side lot ourselves just outside the lobby and dining room. For breakfast, we enjoyed their great buffet.
The town is a wonderful mix of city and small town. There are many boutique shops to explore. There are also many restaurants. We had dinner at Pastabilities. It was very crowded but we only had a five minute wait for a table. My husband and son had pasta dishes and I had a grilled chicken salad which were all great. However, they bake their own bread and the make their own homemade fresh mozzarella and they are truly outstanding.
If you are staying in Syracuse, definitely stay at the Jefferson Clinton Hotel and check out Pastabilities!
We stayed in a room on the second floor right by the elevator. We did not hear the elevator at all...
