Akron, Ohio
Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

small, convenient hotel with friendly, no fuss check in and check out. My room was spacious--plenty of room around king bed, desk and 2 arm chairs. OK breakfast, free on site parking. Staff was friendly and allowed me a later check out. Canteen in lobby but no restaurant or bar; plenty within walking distance.

A nice option in Syracuse. Rooms aren't that large but they are clean and you'll find everything you need. Close to Syracuse University and in the higher end of the hotel spectrum there. We stay there several times a year to visit my daughter at Syracuse.

My wife and I as well as our daughter and her boyfriend stayed here en route to Niagara Falls. Very unique hotel in a former Jewish temple and extremely well done. Each room is unique. It's cool to see the many wall placards that tell you how they reused many materials in the rebuilding process. Excellent Staff!! Very Helpful! Downtown...

I have stayed here twice and I highly recommend it. The staff is incredibly helpful. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. Also, the hotel has a very unique feel to it. The complementary breakfast is surprisingly good too. I'd also like to thank Michael at the front desk, who really went above and beyond to help me.

We have stayed here a number of times while visiting Syracuse University. Location is perfect, as it's about 1.5 blocks from Marshall Street and the rest of campus. 10-15 minute walk to the Carrier Dome. It's an old building that has been completely renovated, so there are still some charming features of the original, but everything is completely modern and...
