Syracuse News Anchor Ron Curtis and wife Joan dancing at their wedding reception at the Persian Terrace on December 27, 1959.
Longtime news anchor for WHEN and WTVH and his wife Joan sharing a dance at their wedding reception at the Persian Terrace at the Hotel Syracuse on December 27, 1959. Joan grew up dining at The Hotel with her parents every Sunday afternoon. Ron and Joan shared many memories at The Rainbow Lounge and other restaurants in The Hotel over the years and Ron hosted “Fashions At Luncheon” as well as big band nights that were often featured on CBS Radio. While Ron passed in 2001, Joan is planning on visiting the new Hotel and reminiscing about the old days while making new memories. Thank you for bringing back an old friend.
We enjoyed our amazing wedding reception at the Hotel Syracuse in the Grand Ballroom. We loved celebrating with loved ones at such an elegant place. The incredible Van Stereo MCed our wedding and put us up in the greatest room there that night. It was an unforgettable celebration, and we would love to host an anniversary party there someday.

Not sure of the dates, but the picture is of my glasses from the opening night of the Hotel Syracuse Library. Us MONY folks would stop over after work to unwind, maybe read a book or, more likely, Disco the night away. Great memories were made during these times.

This is a clothes hanger from the Hotel Syracuse Valet Service, probably circa 1950-53. One probably doesn’t find varnished wooden hangers much anymore in a world dominated by plastics.
My dad’s half brother and his wife played in a band called Kings Melodians. They preformed at the Hotel Syracuse on Fridays. I believe it must be around late 30’s early 40’s.

This is a portrait of Joseph A. Griffin from 1908. He was the President of the Hotel Syracuse Corporation and lived in the hotel until his death in 1937. We was the driving force to get the hotel build to attract people to the Syracuse area. He was a downtown merchant who also was responsible for the Onondaga Parkway project which include the “French” fort, Salt Museum and Griffin Field. He was my great grandfather. My grand father was the first “house” physician of the hotel.
