The Hotel Syracuse, now officially the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, was truly a labor of love. Parts of the historic 92-year-old building were restored to their original splendor including the renowned skyscape ceiling in the Grand Ballroom and the Persian Terrace ballroom. Working from old photographs, artisans were brought in to ensure these common areas would appear as they did in 1924 when the hotel first opened. Over 250 guest suites were also refreshed and modernized during the $70 million 413,000 square foot renovation.
