After a little trouble getting to the hotel (not much parking in front) I was pleasantly surprised, as I checked in after dark and the neighborhood looks a little iffy at night. The lobby is just lovely and the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, which I really needed at the time, after a tough car trip.
My room was on the 6th floor, spacious with 2 queens, microwave, and mini fridge. My only issue with the room itself was the lack of a place to hang clothing. There were plenty of outlets for all my electronics, which was nice (and a pleasant change from last time I stayed in Syracuse at a different hotel). When I first walked into the room it was a bit of a chuckle: the dated furniture gave me the comfy feeling of checking into my grandmother's apartment. This is not to say that it is old, but more of a boutique hotel, homey feeling. No sterile feeling at all.
Though only one elevator was working, I never had to wait long, so not an issue. The lobby is in the middle of renovations, but it is so charming I almost wish that I had time to hang by the fireplace and read a book with a cup of tea. Parking in back was easy and there was plenty. All in all, a great experience, and I would stay again.
Special thanks to the staff. It was a tough day all around, and I had spent 6 hours in the car listening to the tragedy of Newtown unfold on CNN Radio. A warm welcome and helpful smiles were exactly what I needed on that horrible day.
