Share your memories of romantic days gone by at our Historic Syracuse Hotel. 

historic Syracuse Hotel
January is upon us! With the winter in full swing, our thoughts turn to brightening the season with a little romance! Valentine’s Day is always a day that inspires the lovers in all of us and we would love for you to share some romantic memories you may have of the early days of the Hotel Syracuse. From weddings to romantic dinners and more..if these walls could talk!

We are collecting our guest memories here.

One of the touching recollections we have seen was one that was shared with “It’s just unbelievably fantastic,” said Diane Bowes, a Baldwinsville woman whose 78th birthday is this month. Dick Bowes, her husband of 57 years, died in May from respiratory problems. The loss is fresh, and she finds a measure of comfort in the revival of the hotel, the place where she and Dick had their first date when Diane was 21. They went to the Persian Terrace for dinner and dancing. “It was such a beautiful, beautiful place,” she recalled, and that splendor is always there when she thinks of the beginning of their courtship — the kind of role the hotel played in many Central New York romances, over the years. When Diane thinks of the hotel, she thinks of how Dick told her – right away – that she was the girl he’d marry.

Looking forward to creating new romantic memories at our historic Syracuse hotel? We are only a few short months away from welcoming our first guests to the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, and reservations are filling up fast!
