Hotel Skyler

High comfort, low carbon footprint

Given its previous incarnations as first a synagogue and then a playhouse, it’s not surprising to find all sorts of dramatic details at the Skyler. Opened in May 2011, Hotel Skyler’s renovation wisely retained the august exterior and all the artful charms of a 1921 religious structure—arching windows, stained glass, curved molding—while riding the next wave of eco-technology.

What it's like

Hotel Skyler Skyler BarAs befitting a building with a theatrical background, each of the 58 guestrooms have its own dramatic flair: French garret windows, a ladder to a loft bedroom, soaring ceilings, original structural beams. Consistent throughout are exceptionally comfortable beds with carved headboards and a plethora of pillows, organic toiletries, and walk-in showers. Nifty and cutting-edge: A room key card that powers up outlets and lights when you enter and turns them off when you leave.

Independent spirit

Eco-luxury that is eco-conscious

Small touches

A portion of the revenue from the hotel’s “tree house” suites, where  loft bedrooms are accessed by ladders, goes to nearby Golisano Children’s Hospital.

Eat and drink

Stefon’s Marketplace saves busy guests time with an organic, locally sourced breakfast and lunch menu for dining in or take-out. It also features fair-trade organic espresso drinks and teas . In the evenings, try the Skyler Bar’s “environmentally sensitive” beverages.
