I agree with ch on this - I think Crowne Plaza is probably in the top five for Syracuse hotels in terms of overall quality of experience. it is much larger than some of the other places mentioned. The rooms are not particularly spacious BTU are nicely appointed. The place I forgot about that gets high marks - and has the highest occupancy rates in the area - is the Jefferson-Clinton Hotel in Armory Square.

In the past I had read simliar reviews regarding the Doubletree, however I believe the property underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. I ate at their restaurant for dinner last week and thought the hotel was nicely refreshed. The lobby was pretty upscale as was the restaurant which had a nautical theme. The food was adequate. I was staying at another hotel in the Carrier Circle area.

I've stayed at both the Crowne Plaza (used to be a Renaissance) and the Parkview; both are top notch.

I didn't stay in the Doubletree but can confirm that the renovation is complete and that the meeting spaces and rooms look pretty nice. Held a conference there last week - and didn't stay there, obviously, since I live in the area.

It was about 8 years ago when i stayed at Doubletree - prior to the renovation. Parkview is by no means upscale but is quite nice, reasonably priced and has a convenient location on the edge of downtown. My cousin and his family stayed there last summer and were pleased.

Has anyone seen the new lighting outside the Crowne Plaza? Beams of light (I'm assuming the equipment was installed at the base of the hotel or just above the lobby) illuminate a brilliant white light that makes the entire hotel and parking garage visible from numerous vantage points, especially along local interstates near downtown. Not only is this attractive from a safety perspective (the hotel parking garage is not directly attached to the hotel) it also enhances the vibrancy of the surrounding area.
