Testimonials

"I cannot say enough amazing things about my experience with this venue. From day one, Lindsey and her team worked so hard to make our event so special. If you want a stress-free day in the most beautiful and magical venue, you MUST book this venue. Lindsey was prompt in responding to all of my e-mails, she always worked to make everything as easy for me as she possibly could. I felt like royalty on my wedding day, every single staff member was there to make sure we had everything we needed every second of the day. Sharon was also incredible, she went above and beyond at the event to make sure we ate, that we got to taste all of the amazing food even if we didn't get a chance to make it to anything. The setup and cleanup was quick and easy, I didn't have to lift a finger. I could go on and on about every single individual at this hotel who worked tirelessly to give up a flawless and perfect event. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did to give us a fairytale day. It was better than we even imagined. You are all incredible." - Tiffany

"The Marriott Syracuse Downtown has given us a wedding experience beyond what we thought was possible. The staff there was in constant communication with us when we needed them for anything. Every single person was gracious, respectful, and had a honest sense of excitement and ownership. They had incredible attention to detail (and I can be overly strict on details), were super organized, and prepared for multiple contingencies (that were never needed.) They really took a lot of the stress out of the planning and setup and provided us with everything we asked for. I wish I could recommend them more because the whole experience was nothing short of beautiful and memorable... truly outstanding." - Michael

"Thank you to the team at the Marriott Syracuse downtown for making our day absolutely perfect! Anissa was the most organized, thoughtful and caring coordinator from the day we met her. As a bride who loves to plan, she impressed me and took a ton of stress off of me especially on the week leading up to the big day. The day of, Sharon was so perfect- even with our 34 person massive wedding party! Our guests couldn't stop telling us how impressed they were and we couldn't have been happier. I even got to see a sneak peek of the reception set up before my guests entered. Thank you so much!" - Justine

Banquet
Generally used for meals and sessions involving small group discussions. A five foot round table seats eight people comfortably. A six foot round table seats 10 people comfortably.
Conference and Hollow Square
Appropriate for interactive discussions and note-taking sessions for fewer than 25 people. Many hotels have elegant "boardrooms" for 10 to 20 people, equipped with full audiovisual capabilities, a writing board, cork board and a flip chart.
E-Shape, U-Shape and T-Shape
Appropriate for groups of fewer than 40 people. These are best for interaction with a leader seated at the head of the setup. Audiovisual is usually best set up at the open end of the seating.
Theater
Appropriate for large sessions and short lectures that do not require extensive note-taking. This is a convenient setup to use before breaking into discussion or role-playing groups because chairs can be moved.
Reception
Stand-up social function where beverages and light foods are served. Foods may be presented on small buffet tables or passed by servers. May precede a meal function.
Schoolroom or Classroom
The most desirable setup for medium to large-size lectures. Requires a relatively large room. Tables provide attendees with space for spreading out materials and taking notes.
Ovals and Rounds
Generally used for meals and sessions involving small group discussions. A five foot round table seats eight people comfortably. A six foot round table seats 10 people comfortably.
