“Flying out of Syracuse? Great hotel, perfect location... who needs more?”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

We live in Kingston, Ontario and often drive 2.5 hours to Syracuse to fly to a U.S. destination. The airport is right offf Route 81 before you enter Syracuse, and the hotel is right on the airport property.

The rooms are clean, the staff obliging, there is an efficient shuttle bus to the airport (which is in fact walkable) and we can leave our car at the hotel rather than park it at the airport.

What could be better?

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the lobby.

I stay here often when flying out of Syracuse. It's got clean and up-to-date rooms at a moderate price. They also have airport valet which can be very convenient. I have found the staff to be very friendly. Sometimes I have booked the wrong location as there is another HIE up the road a few miles. When this has happened and I show up at the wrong place, the staff have been very helpful in either getting me a last minute room or giving me directions to the correct place.

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.

Room Tip: See my tip on the rooms by the pool on the first floor.

Had a flight diverted and was sent to stay here, room was very big and clean, hotel is only 6 years old and one of the best Holiday Inn hotels I have stayed in. The staff were well organised and did a good job considering the amount of people they were processing. Breakfast is basic and not many healthy options but overall a happy stay under frustrating circumstances.

I needed a place close to the airport for a very early departure. The wake up call was on time; the shuttle service on time and organized. The only negative for me, was no elevator and I had a large piece of luggage to truck up and down the stairs. I would stay there again for an overnight stay.
