Nowhere in Syracuse will you find a more historical hotel than the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. During our $74 million renovation and restoration, we have cultivated 261+ rooms and suites along with 3 ballrooms and 3 restaurants. From our Grand Ballroom’s sky mural ceiling to the original hare and bone floors, there is a story behind nearly every feature of our historic property. Today, we will share a bit of that story with you. If you have yet to visit, take a visual journey through the ins and outs of our property and learn the history of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown. It may inspire you to visit sometime in the not-so-distant future. While entering our lobby you will find our original Terrazzo Flooring, along with our Chandeliers that have been restored to their natural beauty. Arguably, one of the most fascinating pieces of history is the 40-foot by 6-foot mural, located behind the front desk, depicting 20 key events during the first 100 years of Syracuse’s history. This mural was painted for the hotel by Carl Roters, a professor at Syracuse University’s College of Fine Arts. The painter and art restorer, Marek Mularski, of Auburn, Mass., cleaned decades worth of tobacco smoke and coal dust which had darkened the mural over the years, making it identical to how it looked back in 1949.Our lower lobby is home to many of our facilities, such as our IACC center, which was originally a church and then later converted into a Bingo hall. Our Eleven Waters Bar is also located on our lower lobby, too. During our renovation process, we found spouts...
