Sophisticated comfort within walking distance to downtown

Doormen greet guests at Genesee Grande Hotel, who step into a lobby of marble floors and columns, tapestry rugs, opulent furnishings and sunrays streaming through skylights. The hotel shines with character, infusing 1940s style with a contemporary eye, right down to the koi pond and fresh-cut flowers. Service-minded staff provide details about the fitness center, eclectic restaurant and late-night lounge as well as attractions within walking distance. Valet parking, wireless Internet access and an airport shuttle are included.

  • Walking distance to Syracuse University, downtown businesses and nightlife
  • Complimentary airport shuttle
  • Upscale restaurant and lounge
  • Free valet parking and in-room Wi-Fi

Rooms

Spacious guest rooms at Genesee Grande Hotel offer enough room for lots of luggage, yoga postures and even the family cocker spaniel. Get comfortable with pillow-top custom beds, soft Egyptian cotton linens and a gorgeous modern bathroom. A flat-panel television, elegant desk set-up and complimentary wireless Internet access add updated convenience. Four styles of suites elevate the experience with lavish touches from Brazilian granite bathrooms and jacuzzi tubs to formal living rooms and a separate office.

Split Cost with Friends to Make it Worth it

$200/night wouldn't have been in my price range, but split among three of us, this was a great place to stay at a decent price. The place felt luxurious without coming off a snobby and seemed to have enough on-property to keep us occupied if we ended up stuck in the room for the weekend.

Clean and comfortable

We usually stay on the outskirts of the city, but we saw a promo at this hotel for the weekend and decided to give it a try. Except for the fact that there was no coffee/mini bar in the room, no complementary breakfast, and no swimming pool, it was clean and comfortabel and, given that we were in Syracuse to due some shopping, it was quite appropiate for our needs.

Grand Hotel

Warm and welcoming, with all the amenities I wanted. My room was at the end of the hall and extremely quiet. Free coffee in the morning is an added bonus. Fitness center had plenty of equipment though it could use some updating.

Grande Experience

I brought my family up to Syracuse for a basketball game and decided to stay at the Genesee Grande due to its location and price. The hotel looks like it has been recently redone, and the lobby and room were pristine. I booked a room with two double beds and, to my surprise, was given a two room suite which had a queen bed and living room with a fold out bed. The staff was also excellent during what I am sure was a very hectic weekend. Also, it is a very walkable distance to campus and did not charge for parking like some other hotels in the area. I will certainly stay at the Genesee Grande on my next visit to Syracuse.

Dated and way overpriced

To start the room was not ready on time and we had the so called "King Suite". The service was indifferent and less than engaged. The room itself was large but old and the TV was at least ten years old. The worst part was the air conditioning that kept turning on and off every ten minutes which made sleeping a challenge. Overall I would suggest staying at the Jefferson Clinton hotel while in Syracuse.

Nice stay

Stayed here with my daughter to visit the university. Place worked well, within walking distance to the campus. We did not have to drive at all while in town. I noticed they have an airport shuttle too, so rental car is only needed if you want to look outside of town. Rooms were clean and neat. Bathroom was small, but funcitonal. Fitness room was superior to most. Two computers provide in the lobby worked well. Lobby is nice. Breakfast can be purchased at the restaurant in the lobby, but there are lots of local options as well.

Nice place to stay

The rooms are a nice size for the price. I stayed in a suite and had a master bedroom and an office for the price that would get me a closet sized room back home. The check-in was pleasant. The shuttle to the airport is wonderful and accomodating. The only issue I had was minor lipstick stains on towels. Replaced the towels and all was good.
