Hotel History of Marriott Syracuse Downtown

Originally opened as The Hotel Syracuse in August 1924, the property was deemed 'The Grand Lady' being the largest and most prestigious hotel in Syracuse, NY. In the roaring twenties, Hotel Syracuse was the place to be. Five US Presidents stayed along with countless celebrities, including John Lennon, who celebrated his 30th birthday by staying an entire week. Paying homage to the legacy, our $75 million renovation focused on preserving the original grandeur of the hotel, which is evident today in all aspects of your stay. The hotel reopened in August 2016 as Marriott Syracuse Downtown.

The Grand Ballroom is one of the best known features of Hotel Syracuse and was restored to reflect its original form, where coutnless weddings, high school proms and mitzvahs were celebrated.

Originally named the Terrace room, the Persian Terrace’s original name was developed because the back half of the room is a step up from the front half. The restoration of the Persian Terrace was one of the most challenging jobs.

While the lobby reflects how it looked originally upon opening in 1924, the restoration started with a lobby that had faced costmetic updates made in the retro 80s. The walls and ceilings were painted white and the murals showcased today were hidden by mirrors, all damaged by tobacco smoke and coal dust. Restoration started by carefully removing varnishes from the walls, ceilings, murals and floors. The terrazzo floors were restored with the original tiles - there is a story with each step you take.

The door to your home away from home during your stay with us are the original doors that were used in our former life as Hotel Syracuse. While they have been restored and installed with today's technology, there is a very unique back story.

Eight 4,000 pound concrete statues of gargoyles sat over the hotel guarding the building and its guests for more than 90 years. Over the decades, the gargoyles had cracked and deteriorated and were not in the shape to restore. New replicas take their place to continue watching over the hotel.

When the hotel first opened, the ground floor featured retail shops and outlets. Today, Eleven Waters, an Upstated inspired eatery, occupies the area that used to be a barbershop, which gave the name to 'The Barbershop Bar' at Eleven Waters.

Shaughnessy’s is a sports-friendly pub inspired by owner Ed Riley’s long line of loyal Irish Setters! The interior is highlighted by the original Syracuse Nationals’ basketball court, moved from the Onondaga County War Memorial to serve as the pub’s floor. The Syracuse Nationals were among the original seven teams that formed the NBA in 1949. Home court advantage takes on a whole new meaning at Shaughnessy's. Additional Syracuse University memorabilia is showcased around the restaurant, displayed for guests to see during their visit.
