Congratulations! The bride is preparing for the wedding of her dreams, and perhaps this fairy tale ceremony will even be taking place here, at the Marriott Syracuse Downtown.

When planning a bridal shower, the duty traditionally rests with the Maid-of-Honor and choosing the perfect bridal shower venue is often thought to be just as important as the wedding venue itself. If you’re looking for the best bridal shower venue in Syracuse, the same event space that the bride is choosing can make perfect sense, providing you with the ideal setting for making memories and ensuring that everyone has the most wonderful time possible.

With event spaces that range from the most luxurious and intimate to the grandest of ballrooms imaginable, we have something here for every bride and every budget. No matter your preferred style, your bride can expect her day to be elegant, sophisticated, and most importantly, special!

Even though the hosting responsibility may have fallen on your graceful shoulders, the same Certified Wedding Specialists and the corresponding team members that assist in planning the picture-perfect storybook weddings that the Marriott Syracuse Downtown is known for are also at your disposal. Our Catering Services Manager will lead a team to customize a menu to fit any budget – whether brunch, lunch, or a very elegant afternoon tea! All the little, but still vital details, from seating arrangements to tastings, will be handled personally and professionally with no request too large or small. Of course, if your bride has her own outside help who wishes to advise, they are more than welcome to join us (standard event policies may apply).

So, why not treat the bride to a day she will never forget by hosting her shower with us, here at the historic Marriott Syracuse Downtown Hotel.
