We had our reception in the Grand Ballroom. We weren't sure what to expect with the hotel since it was still a construction zone when we booked, but we are so glad we did because the restoration is amazing! The Grand Ballroom is so elegant and the architectural details of the hotel are beautiful. It was pouring rain on our wedding day, but the we were able to take some amazing pictures inside using the hotel as the backdrop. We worked with Lindsey to coordinate all of the wedding details. She was always quick to respond, and was very helpful in making sure that my vision for the reception would come together. She made some great suggestions for details that I never would have thought of. We are still getting compliments from our guests on how beautiful the hotel was, how elegantly the room was setup, and how great the food was. Everyone was very impressed, especially me and my husband!Sent on 11/21/2016

The perfect wedding experience!
Thank you to the team at the Marriott Syracuse downtown for making our day absolutely perfect! Anissa was the most organized, thoughtful and caring coordinator from the day we met her. As a bride who loves to plan, she impressed me and took a ton of stress off of me especially on the week leading up to the big day. The day of, Sharon was so perfect- even with our 34 person massive wedding party! Our guests couldn't stop telling us how impressed they were and we couldn't have been happier. I even got to see a sneak peek of the reception set up before my guests entered. Thank you so much!Sent on 05/08/2019
