Graph of Syracuse, NY Hotel Prices for Next 20 Days

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Syracuse, NY discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Syracuse hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Syracuse University, a major research university, and Le Moyne College, a nationally recognized liberal arts college, are both located in Syracuse, New York. The city has the largest airport in the region. The presence of these prestigious educational institutions has helped push Syracuse to its position as the educational and economic hub of the Central New York metro area. It sits at the intersection of major Interstates 81 and 90, on the northeast corner of the Finger Lakes region.

The lush, green surroundings offer a beautiful and pleasant atmosphere, with more than a quarter of the city's land covered by nearly 900,000 trees. Syracuse gets quite a bit of snow each winter with its humid continental climate. In fact, it receives a higher annual average of snowfall than any other metropolitan area in the U.S. The lake effect from nearby Lake Ontario and the nor'easter snowfall contribute to the high annual average, which is about 115 inches.

What Are the Best Times to Score a Great Hotel Deal?

At certain times of the year, the hotel prices will increase as the result of events in the Syracuse area. During the late spring and early summer, outdoor festivals take place nearly every weekend. These events draw in visitors, which can cause a slight increase in hotel prices. During college football season, Syracuse Orange home football games will also result in higher prices for hotel rooms. Keep an eye on the schedule and try to visit when the team is playing away games, or skip football season entirely if you're trying to get a great deal on lodging.

It's easy to get a great deal on a hotel room during the winter since the snowfall will increase dramatically. If you're willing to brave the cold and snow, head to the area in December or January. During the holiday season, you can take part in the annual lighting of the Christmas tree and Hanukkah menorah or drive through the Lights on the Lake, a 2-mile stretch featuring impressive holiday light displays. In February, Syracuse hosts Winterfest, a 10-day celebration with activities and events for all ages.
