Okay, we were a bit apprehensive based upon some of the reviews. But very positive experience for us. Spent a Saturday night and thought the value was exceptional, under a hundred dollars. Convenient location, adjacent parking lot, friendly staff, truly spectacular lobby, clean well-stocked bathroom, fine eighth floor view, nice looking room. Elevators small but quick. Hallway surprisingly clean and...

We visited family in Utica last week and due to many events going on in the area, we had a hard time finding room availability. The Hotel Utica may have been nice 30 years ago, but it has long since seen its' day. We were told it was recently bought by Doubletree, so maybe after they do massive renovations it...

My daughter's and I stayed at the Hotel Utica while we attended a concert at The Stanley. The hotel staff was all excellent and helpful. What a beautiful. Historic hotel.

Spent two nights in hotel but other than that little time. Front desk staff and check in fast and efficient. Room was clean; leak in bathroom, was minor but not fixed. Hotel was in need of a remodel which I understand is coming with the new owners. Nothing special but it was inexpensive and available. I would stay here again.

The lobby is gorgeous; high ceilings, big windows, lots of space, crystal chandeliers, the 1912 elegance is everywhere in the lobby. Unfortunately, the hotel changed hands about 3 months ago and the prior owners apparently removed some items that the new owners didn't expect to find missing. Each room is supposed to have a desk; mine didn't. And had one...

The Hotel Utica was a gem in the history of Utica and you can still see the shine in many of its features, especially it's grand lobby.

We didn't research reviews, just looked at on line, our fault. This hotel is in major transition, its just been taken over by a big chain. I hope they really commit to investing in remodeling.
