Marriott reopened the historic Hotel Syracuse in 2016. Since then, the best banquet spaces in Syracuse have been housed under one roof. Restoring the grandeur of the past and adding the modern comforts of today, the Marriott Syracuse Downtown is the ideal host for any type of gathering. From corporate events to social affairs, when you’re catering an event in Syracuse, we have some great tips that’ll always ensure success!

Make a Guest List

Your guest list is important – it helps start you off, point you in the right direction and makes some of the other decision-making that much easier. Is it a formal or informal gathering? Do any guests need lodging? Are there cultural traditions that must be honored? Do you have a per person budget or a lump sum to divide up how you want?
Whatever you need, we’ll ensure that your event is fully personalized to meet any request. Our event spaces span more than 41,000 square feet and can accommodate up to 1,330 guests. Special reduced room rates for attendees are also available.

Plan an Appropriate Menu

A major decision in event planning is tailoring a menu to fit your gathering while respecting your guests’ personal needs. Our culinary team will work with you exclusively to plan a menu that perfectly suits all of your requirements, while honoring any special requests. Using the best farm-to-table and local ingredients, our chefs will ensure that every bite is delicious, and that your event both reflects the region and stands out for its exquisite taste and creativity.

Presentation is Everything!

We take tremendous pride in making sure that every detail, and every plate that is presented to your guests, is absolutely perfect. Whether it is a business event with snacks and a light lunch, or a six course wedding, they all get the same care, creativity and attention.

Choosing the Venue

It’s time to decide the appropriate space for your event. A corporate setting might need some privacy for a closed discussion, while a more social gathering may wish to have room for guests to spread out and mingle. From our state-of-the-art 14,200-square-foot IACC Conference Center (including our exquisite Finger Lakes Ballroom) to the historic Grand Ballroom and Persian Terrace, we’ll help you decide on the right venue. From flexible spaces to the perfect table settings and decor, our dedicated team will make sure that every detail is taken care of and your next event is a complete success.
