Converted from what was formerly a temple, then a theatre, the Hotel Skyler has a lovely quirky feel to it but they've done an excellent job in making it a comfortable hotel as well as making it as environmentally friendly as possible with a low carbon footprint. Our room was large and clean and the beds were comfortable. Very nice walk-in shower. Free wifi and free parking. The staff manning the front desk (actually more a podium) were very friendly and very helpful.
The lobby area is nice and airy with a clean feel to it and it has a nice little bar that serves a good selection of drinks including tea and coffee. If you're visiting the university it's certainly in a great spot as it's right on the edge of the campus. As other reviewers have noted, the price of a room is quite high considering it doesn't include breakfast* (there is no restaurant in the hotel). I would definitely stay again but might be tempted to try elsewhere on my next trip to Syracuse to see how it compares. I like this hotel a lot and would recommend it but if you're on a budget, you might want to consider other options.
*Actually, on the day we checked out, I noticed a sign at the bar that suggested they can rustle up a cooked breakfast but this isn't included in the price of the room and you would presumably eat at the bar.
