    Located at 701 E. Genesee St., the hotel is within seven miles of Syracuse Hancock International Airport and offers a free shuttle service. With convenient access to Highways I-81 and I-90, the Crowne Plaza Syracuse Downtown is within a half mile of the Syracuse University campus and less than three miles from Le Moyne College.

    “The hotel’s location close to the region’s largest airport, a major university and the convention center complex makes it a leading attraction for meeting planners,” said Gina LaBarre, vice president, Brand Delivery, the Americas, IHG. “With the conversion of this hotel to a Crowne Plaza, we can now offer our comprehensive meetings program, which meeting planners won’t find at any other hotel in the Syracuse market.”
