Syracuse Events and Attractions

Staying at our hotels makes it easy to enjoy the best of Syracuse. From sports games to downtown nightlife, the Syracuse area is one of the liveliest regions in Upstate New York and there’s no shortage of things to do.

Treat yourself to a day of shopping at Destiny USA, then take the kids to WonderWorks – an interactive theme park located on the third floor. Enjoy a relaxing round of golf at one of the premier golf courses that Syracuse offers. Visit Armory Square to discover some of the best boutique shopping and dining in town.

Visiting in the winter? As the winner of the Golden Snowball Award, Syracuse embraces its snowy climate with plenty of skiing, sledding, ice-skating and an annual Winterfest celebration. In the summer and fall, the city is home to some of the best events in Upstate, such as the Great New York State Fair, Syracuse Dirt Week and Syracuse Nationals car show.

Whether you’re in town for a conference at the OnCenter at Syracuse Convention Complex or attending your child’s graduation at Syracuse University, you will love the convenient locations of our five properties.
