I stayed here for two nights on business. The hotel is convenient to the airport, about 1 1/2 miles and located right off the highway. There is plenty of meal choices in the restaurants around the area from sit down to fast food. There are also two grocery stores within a mile if you forget anything like a toothbrush or just want a late night snack. The room came with a decent sized flat screen a chair and stool, along with a desk and chair. Room was comfortable, plenty of electrical outlets but did not have a mini fridge or microwave (there is a microwave down by the snack machines in the event you want to heat up leftovers or make popcorn).
The Good - the hotel is conveniently located, is clean and the rooms are sizeable. The staff was pretty friendly and they do have an indoor pool. In addition, they serve a decent hotel breakfast that is included in the price each morning. They also delivered a news paper to the room which was nice. Bathroom amenities are the standard Holiday Inn items. Location is close to the airport and about 4 miles from downtown Syracuse or about 15 minutes.
The Not so good - the hotel gym only has two treadmills and a rowing machine. There are no weights or machines to use and the treadmills, while nice, are what I would consider more of a home type treadmill. The hotel itself is somewhat pricey for what you get. I paid $135 a night for a regular room. Coffee here is horrible (as it is at all of the IHG hotels except the Intercontinental), they do have snack machines but you will be charged $2 or more for a small bottle of water. Parking can be difficult here as it is connected to a Candlewood Suite parking area. I have been here both in the summer and winter and in the winter, it can be a headache with the snow plowing. Pillows were horrible but the bed was okay. Movie prices were outrageous at $16.00 for a regular movie.
For a short stay of a night or two, this place wouldn't be too bad. Internet worked fine with no knock offs, was quiet and well kept. If I had to stay longer, I'd stay at the Candlewood next to this which I've stayed at a couple of times previously.
This hotel is safe for families and the kids would enjoy the indoor pool. If you have kids, ask for a room directly across from the pool as the pool wall has large windows where you can see the kids. This also would allow easy access to the back parking area where parking is much easier.
