Famous Guests Through the years are part of the history of Hotel Syracuse.

History of Hotel Syracuse

In September of 1924, the Hotel Syracuse opened to the public. Designed by George B. Post and Sons and built at a cost of more than six million dollars, the building was a product of great ingenuity and luxury.

Part of the rich history of the Hotel Syracuse includes its famous guests. Child movie star and Syracuse native Jackie Coogan was the first registered guest at the hotel. Numerous celebrities have visited over the decades as well, including Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, aviator Charles Lindbergh, entertainers Bob Hope, Nat King Cole, Elvis Presley, the Rolling Stones and John Lennon with Yoko Ono.

Looking toward the future, we can’t wait to welcome guests again to the Marriott Syracuse Downtown in our fully refurbished property. ALL of our guests will be stars in our eyes! The new Marriott Syracuse has a projected completion date for Spring 2016 and will include 261 new rooms and 17 suites. History will also be preserved as the Grand Ballroom, Persian Terrace and Lobby will be updated. For more information, please visit our website.
