Syracuse, NY (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
For the first time in more than five decades, travelers to downtown Syracuse can look forward to a contemporary lodging experience, as the Courtyard by Marriott Syracuse Downtown Armory Square, and its sister hotel, the Residence Inn by Marriott, prepare to open in July.
“It’s been decades since there has been a new hotel offering in downtown Syracuse,” said Jim Wefers, general manager. “I am certain that business travelers, as well as those coming to town for Syracuse games, campus tours, family occasions, reunions, or just an evening on Armory Square will appreciate the thoughtful design and upscale comforts that the Courtyard by Marriott will offer.”
The Courtyard by Marriott brand offers business travelers a chance to enjoy a break from the routine of business travel. The brand new hotel in Syracuse NY combines modern styling, innovative technology, comfort and convenience in one location. Marriott’s Interactive GoBoard, a 55-inch LCD touch screen, provides relevant and up-to-date news, weather, maps and airline schedules as well as local information for busy visitors. Apart from other downtown hotels, the Courtyard by Marriott Armory Square will offer valet parking services, a heated indoor pool and on-site Bistro, serving breakfast selections and light evening fare including cocktails, wine and beer.
Centrally located on the corner of W. Fayette and S. Franklin Sts., the Courtyard Armory Square and adjoining Residence Inn will anchor Syracuse’s Connective Corridor, a distinctive path that includes public art, bike paths, special transportation services, among other amenities and links University Hill with downtown Syracuse’s notable historic districts, shopping and dining areas as well as art and cultural venues.
As an introductory offer, guests booking stays through September 9, 2013, will receive $20 off the standard rate and complimentary valet parking. In addition, Marriott Rewards members staying at the new Syracuse hotels will receive bonus points on stays up to the September deadline. Guests should visit the hotel online at http://www.marriott.com/syrdt or call 1-800-MARRIOTT to take advantage of this limited time offer.
