Hotel Skyler Rooms

Premium - King
Premium King offers one king bed. Fresh and fun, the eclectic mix of mid-century and modern in the king room will remind you of your Aunt Rosies lake cottage, but kicked up one very big notch. With plenty of room on the streamlined parsons desk for work or snacks, and miles of organic cotton on the king size bed, youll fall asleep dreaming of simpler times and awake energized for all your twenty-first-century endeavors.
Premium - Suite
Premium Suite offers one king bed. Room to move and space to groove. Traveling alone? There's not only a peaceful bedroom with a king size bed and flat-panel TV, there's also a sensational sitting room, decorated with freewheeling panache (and another TV), plus a clean-lined parsons desk with a Herman Miller chair. Family or friends along? The spacious, captivating king suites let you stretch out, breathe in, and dream big.
Premium - Double
Premium Double offers two queen beds. The unique cut-out headboards on the two comfy queen size beds signal a departure from ho-hum, and the rest of this spacious room follows suit. Taking its cues from nature, the queen room delights with vibrant punches of color, pattern, and texture. The contemporary bathroom, with its walk in shower, provides a soothing spa-like refuge. No two rooms are alike try them all and then ask for your favorite when you visit the next!
2_Storey - Suite
2 Storey Suite offers one king bed and one twin bed and one sofa bed. At the nearby Golisano Childrens Hospital, a two-story tree house with a gallery, solarium, performance space, and chapel comforts and inspires young patients and their families. In honor of this special place, half the revenues generated from the inventive Tree House suites will be donated to the hospital. Tree House suites feature a king size bed in a loft sleeping area, sitting room below with pull-out sofa and second flat-panel TV, and that uplifted feeling you get when you help someone who really needs it. (In advance, thanks!)

Stefon's Marketplace
Hectic day ahead (or behind)? Stop by Stefons Marketplace, in the lobby, and be off in a hurry with take-away beverages, breakfast items, sandwiches, salads, and snacks. But this isn't fast food. There's no need to sacrifice health or ethics at Stefons, which serves only certified fair-trade coffee and teas, plus bountiful locally sourced and organic choices. Whether you're in the mood for a half-cafe soy latt or a full-on Cuban Panini, Stefons offers delicious fare you can enjoy wherever your day may take you.
Stefon's Place Coffee and Wine Bar
Mellow music, big windows with a great view, and delicious drinks are critical ingredients for a coffee shop and wine bar. They're the reason why Stefons, in The Park-view Hotel - less than a half mile from Hotel Skyler, is a favorite with both hotel guests and the community.

Beautiful Hotel!!!!

The Hotel was in a central location in the city, close to the college is what we needed and it fit the bill! The room and the hotel a beautifully decorated and very clean. The staff was nice. The only reason i didnt give the hotel 5 stars is they had no coffee makers in the rooms! You had no choice but to buy coffee in the lobby/bar. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. The beds were great and the setup was nice. The hotel is really cool!! And "green" too!

Awesome Boutique Hotel!

My friends I stayed at the Hotel Skyler on our way to Niagara Falls. The hotel had good parking & was central to restaurants/bars. There is also a small bar in the hotel. The front desk was very professional & accommodating....they even shipped a pair of sneakers we left behind. Overall great stay & highly recommended.

Nice new hotel in great location

Nice boutique hotel in great location - close to Syracuse campus. The lobby area was very nice, with an interesting bar and great design. Easy walk to Syracuse University. Also pretty easy to get to from Rt. 90, which we were on - really just passing through. Not meaning to spend time in Syracuse.

so so experience

Hotel was beautiful, but room which was advertised as a suite was not much larger than a regular the rom. But bed was comfortable at all. Way too soft. View was of a parking lot and window was tiny. Not worth the price at all.

Why no food?

The Skyler markets itself as a boutique hotel, its speciality being environmental sensitivity. The latter just seems like more of that don't-run-up-our-laundry-bill-by-asking-for-clean-towels hype. As to the former… the building (an ex-church) is interesting, but the decor is migraine-inducing. That wallpaper, those carpets: yewww. And there is no food service of any kind – no café, no breakfast bar, no in-room coffee – other than that sold in a self-service booth in the lobby. Not impressed, and not good value.

Appreciate the hospitality.

Staff was wonderful. Hotel was clean and comfortable and provided me with a warm and friendly winter stay while doing thesis work at the university. I would definitely recommended this hotel to anyone visiting the university.
