It’s all about the Furnishings at our Historic Syracuse Hotel

Harden Furniture and Stickley Furniture grace the rooms of our historic Syracuse hotel.

Historic Syracuse Hotel

At the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, formerly Hotel Syracuse, we are all about tradition. As guests walk through our spaces, this historic Syracuse hotel displays grandeur and elegance of years gone and restoration handled with the utmost care.

We are delighted to continue in the tradition of fine furnishing throughout our property. Harden Furniture is restoring approximately 200 antique chairs from the hotel and Fayetteville-based Stickley Furniture, one of the original suppliers of furniture for the Hotel Syracuse, will make furnishings for the hotel’s renovated rooms.

Harden Furniture – for 167 years and through five generations of family ownership, Harden Furniture has been creating fine furnishings with the environmental preservation in mind. It is this type of historic organization that is deeply rooted in its community that echoes the fine attention to detail and restoration that we value.

Stickley Furniture – since the early 20th century, Stickley Furniture has been crafting excellent furniture from the highest quality woods with great attention to detail and as one of the original suppliers of furniture of our historic Syracuse hotel, we knew that we had to keep that type of excellence alive.

When we officially open our doors to the public this summer, you will be able to enjoy the fine craftsmanship of both of these historic companies. For reservations, please visit our website.

Where Are We Now: Restoration Updates for the Marriott Syracuse, Formerly Hotel Syracuse

The latest historic Syracuse hotel restoration updates.
We are getting closer and closer to the official opening of our historic Syracuse hotel and everything is coming together so quickly! Here is a recap of some of the latest restoration updates for the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, formerly Hotel Syracuse.

Restoration Updates for the Marriott Syracuse

Let there be (Chandelier) light!

Several months ago we bid a fond farewell to a number of chandeliers for restoration. This 6 month process was handled by Grand Light, a lighting restoration company in Seymour, Connecticut. “They’re functional pieces of art that were created for the hotel,” said Ryan Stockman, vice president of Grand Light. “They’re historical. The craftsmanship is unbelievable.” This week, the team from Associated Industrial Riggers, of East Syracuse meticulously installed the stunning Lobby chandeliers to light the way in our grand entrance.

Artistic restoration

Brush stroke by brush stroke. Marek Mularski of Auburn Massachusetts has been ever so carefully restoring the 40 foot mural that graces a wall in the Lobby. Over the last several weeks, Mr. Mularksi has been working to remove years of tobacco smoke and dust and when completed, the mural will be exactly the same as when it was originally painted 67 years ago.

The opening of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown is much anticipated throughout the area and we can’t wait to showcase our modern amenities coupled with the beauty of the restoration of our historic Syracuse hotel. Continue to follow us on our Blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
