Hotel Syracuse tower to be converted into extended-stay hotel

A 15-story tower that was added to the Hotel Syracuse in Syracuse, N.Y., is being transformed into a separate extended-stay hotel.

Contractor Hayner Hoyt Corporation and developer Ed Riley are converting the tower into a 120-room hotel. The tower was formerly known as the Hilton Tower during the Hotel Syracuse's then-affiliation with Hilton Worldwide.
