Great hotel for a visit to Syracuse University, located just on the edge of campus, and convenient to restaurants, coffee shops and highways. More pricey than other hotels I've stayed in nearby (and which also include breakfast; the Skyler does not), but I tried it after getting a good deal on hotels.com.
Unique lobby with stained glass windows from an old nearby church. The building itself was formerly both a temple and a theatre, and it holds an LEED platinum rating. Easy, free parking and free wi-fi.
King room was very comfortable and clean with a large walk-in shower, and included a mini-fridge. Some noise could be heard from adjoining rooms but it wasn't bad.
My main complaint was there was no set-up for making coffee or tea in the room, and no complimentary beverage center in the lobby. The lobby does have an attractive small bar where you can also purchase coffee/tea, but it seems standard almost everywhere now to include these items in the room or lobby.
Try Faegan's right up the street for lunch or dinner. A college bar, but with a cozy pub feel. Wonderful "white chili" and great burgers.CVS, Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks nearby also, as well as many other restaurants and college town eateries.
