SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) - The beloved Hotel Syracuse is just 10 days from reopening, after being closed for more than a decade.
Since the beginning of the Hotel's restoration two years ago, the people of Syracuse have been eager to take a look inside this extraordinary piece of the city's history.
From the moment you walk into the new entrance on East Onondaga Street, you are transported back to 1924, and the original grandeur of the hotel. The lobby looks just like it did in the heyday of this landmark.
This hotel was the vision of Ed Riley, a Syracuse native who grew up coming to this hotel. As an architect, Riley had the experience and the motivation to restore the old gal.
