Syracuse Downtown Dining Weeks adds hotel package to lure visitors

Posted on February 8, 2017


SYRACUSE, NY -- ( The annual Downtown Dining Weeks promotion has always lured hungry folks to Syracuse restaurants with its promise of a three-course meal for $25 or less.

Now in its 13th year, Downtown Dining Weeks has  a new added deal: A "Sleep Over" package that offers a room at one of four downtown hotels for a discounted rate of $185, plus a $25 credit for a dinner at one of the Dining Weeks participating restaurants. And the deal includes free parking.

The offer is good at these hotels during the Feb. 15 to March 1 promotion:

* The Courtyard by Marriott Syracuse Downtown at Armory Square and the Residence Inn Downtown Syracuse at Armory Square, both at 300 W. Fayette St.

* The Jefferson Clinton Hotel, 416 S. Clinton St.

* The Marriott Syracuse Downtown (Hotel Syracuse), 100 E. Onondaga St. (Note, the restaurant credit here is only good at the hotel's Eleven Waters bistro.)

The idea of adding hotels is so that visitors  can "make a weekend of it," said Jim Wefers, general manager of the Courtyard Marriott. He said he hopes people come for dinner and "stay for brunch."
