Have stayed here several times. A little more expensive than other places in the area, but location makes up for the cost. Now includes breakfast which is nice. Quiet. Rooms are spacious. Staff is friendly and helpful. Parking is included.

The hotel is very nice and well maintained. I loved the history and the use of reclaimed materials. The check in was the fastest check in I have ever experienced at ANY hotel! There was a free breakfast included with the stay. Nothing fancy but it was tasty! The staff is friendly and professional. I would recommend this hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for one night. My boyfriend and I were travelling from Canada to NYC and our train left Syracuse the next day. Very close to the train station (apx 10 min drive). We arrived late and had an okay check in. I requested a wake up call for 530 am and never got one. If I didn't set an alarm on my phone, we would have missed our train. The same man was working when we checked out and he never apologized. Very frustrating.

Newer hotel in converted synagogue. Staff was wonderful. Rooms were great. Only space for improvement was breakfast- bread products were stale- maybe previously frozen.

Convenient Hotel for Syracuse University

3 out of 5

Pros: Breakfast, convenient to Syracuse University Campus
Cons: Walls are thin, fitness room needs to be expanded and updated
Location: Close to Syracuse University
I stayed at Hotel Skyler when I took my daughter to tour Syracuse University. The hotel is right on the edge of the university and is an easy walk to the center of campus. The breakfast that is included is nice and fairly standard for a hotel breakfast. I have two criticisms. First, the fitness room is super small with old equipment. It is not an appealing place to work out. Second, the walls in the hotel are paper-thin and it is easy to hear everything going on in the room next door. But I'd probably stay at Hotel Skyler again given the convenience.
