Summer might be just getting started, but it’s never too early to start looking for a fall or winter event space in Syracuse.
Opened in 1924, the Hotel Syracuse was the stunning standout of Central New York hotels for many years before its closing in 2004. Countless weddings and other social events, as well as the meetings of many business groups and conventions, were held in its Persian Terrace, Grand Ballroom and other function rooms. Today we are recreating the grandeur of this historic property as the Hotel Syracuse becomes the Marriott Syracuse Downtown.
We have over 37,000 square feet of flexible event space just waiting for you. We have an IACC Conference Center with eight breakout rooms, six private dining/meeting rooms and three lovely ballrooms, as well.
• Grand Ballroom – 5,952 square feet
• Persian – 4,050 square feet
• Finger Lakes Ballroom – 7,888 square feet
• Empire Room – 2,940 square feet
All of our meeting space on the ground floor is IACC approved, as well as our Finger Lakes Ballroom. We are proud to be the largest and newest IACC conference space available in the Syracuse area.
