Shave & a Haircut! Welcome Hall of Fame Barber shop to the Marriott Syracuse Downtown

Hall of Fame Barber Shop will be the official barber shop of the Marriott Syracuse, formerly Hotel Syracuse.

Hall of Fame Barbershop Syracuse We are getting ready to welcome the Hall of Fame Barber Shop to our historic Syracuse Hotel. Located with a storefront on South Warren Street and access to the street level lobby, the shop will be easily accessible to hotel guests as well as anyone working or traveling through the area.

“We are so excited to be the ones to pick up right where history left off at this hotel. There is also a significant demand for our services in this area of downtown Syracuse, between the professionals at the business offices, the weddings and events that will be held at the hotel, and the other events that come through this part of town.”
~Hall of Fame Barber Shop owner Matt Hughes.

The new location at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown will have five barber stations and one stylist station, offering special packages for full wedding parties or just the groomsmen, and for downtown business professionals.

Services will include the barber shop’s traditional shaves, shampooing, haircuts and shoe shines, as well as men’s hair color, facials, waxing, manicures and massages. Additionally, customers will also be able to purchase hair care, beard care, and shaving products at the shop.

“Hall of Fame Barber Shop is really embracing the culture and the history of this hotel. In addition to offering traditional shaves and haircuts, they will also use the actual shoe shining pedestals from the hotel’s original barber shop.”
~ Paul McNeil, General Manager for the Marriott Syracuse Downtown.

Hall of Fame will share the historic feel of the hotel in this new location, rather than the sports theme that customers have come to know at the other area locations and adds to the growing list of amenities and services we are pleased to offer all who visit.

The Marriott Syracuse Downtown is putting the final touches on our restoration! Guests can make their reservations now for later this summer and beyond.

How Far We’ve Come at our Historic Syracuse Hotel!

From Hotel Syracuse to Marriott Syracuse Downtown, a photo history of our historic Syracuse hotel.

We are just a few short months away from opening our property fully to hotel guests and the journey has been quite amazing! When we welcome our first overnight guests this summer, the true beauty of our property will be fully revealed. Let’s take a look back on how far we’ve come.

When Mr. Riley, a local architect and developer spearheaded the renovation and revitalization of the Hotel Syracuse in 2014 there was so much to do. The hotel hadn’t been open to the public for many years.

Through the extensive construction process, so much was discovered. Hidden murals and the former barbershop to name a few. Careful restoration has been a cornerstone of this project.

We’ve unveiled the look of our new rooms. The former Hotel Syracuse housed over 600 guest rooms that featured only one or two double beds and a small bathroom. Now, guest room spaces will be twice the size of the former with either 400 or 450 square feet and comforting amenities throughout.

We announced the partnership with the Oncenter as the official hotel of the Oncenter Convention Center.

When our full restoration is complete, the Marriott Syracuse Downtown will feature 261 guest rooms and 18 suites, three ballrooms, a conference center, a full-service restaurant, sports bar, steak house and a coffee shop. Upon entering the Lobby, guests will be greeted by Terrazzo floors and 20-foot columns along with restored original murals and 1924 chandeliers.

Reserve your guest room now at our historic Syracuse hotel and join us this summer as we open our doors to the public, officially, for the first time.
