Because of its geographic location, Syracuse has historically served as a crossroads for the Erie Canal and its connecting waterways, as well as for the railway network across central New York. Today hotels in Syracuse continue to serve as a midway point for those headed for New York City vacations, but the city itself is a popular vacation destination.
The Empire State’s fifth largest city offers a wide variety of accommodations to fit any travel budget, from upscale amenities to Syracuse cheap hotels. Many choose to stay downtown close to attractions such as the Erie Canal Museum, Everson Museum, and Museum of Science and Technology.
