Everything about our room was nice. The comfort, the view, and general condition of the room. Not enough pillows or extra blankets but we didn't request more. The room was really a living area and a bedroom area. The television was not viewable from the living room area where it could be used by the night owls. Our room was on the second floor in the front of the hotel but not particularly noisy as some had found.
There was no one on the "front" desk at the Packwood House much of the time. Coming back late from the Jazz Fest in Syracuse, parking in the open lot behind the hotel was not at all comfortable. Note there is no street parking overnight. The underground garage was filled. Then the way to our room was through the underground, but totally open to anyone, parking area to the elevator where you used your room card. With no security at a front desk, the option to go up an alleyway and down a side entrance to the inn seemed even more questionable. For the room rate we paid, there must be some better parking solution for the Packwood House guests who are returning late to their rooms or, at a minimum, someone on the desk to insure your safe re-entry.
