We decided to Cruise Lake Onondaga all the way to Syracuse Inner Harbor .
Docks are modern with free electricity (water was not operational at this time)
Even they are making extreme efforts to remove the weeds and algea in the channel. We got stuck in the middle of the channel with 6.5 depth our full keel draft is 3.6 feet and we were stuck.
We called TowBoat US and they do not have any service tow provider. They would send a Towboat on a trailer having 65 miles to get to our location... My wife and I managed to push the bow on each side then favour the north side of the channel.
Following the advice to the local Sherriff officers we favourded the 11 feet and 13 feet markers. We made it to the docks.
Then we walked to the beautiful trendy Aloft Hotel which is opened since the 12th of July 2016.
Wow what a pleasant surprise. We were greeted by Jessica at the reception.
Jessica was quite hospitable as shed provided us documentation and complimentary Wifi Access code and all the appropriate information for visiting Syracuse and the Destiny USA mega Shopping Center with bus shuttle to the FAIR.
From the moment we walked in we found everyone working at the Hotel to be fantastic. Great rooms, Bar, Pool, Training and Conference facilities. This is the place to come and visit Syracure by boat and/or by car.
Then we met Robin who offered us to visit and tour the Hotel facilities. Robin mentionned that they welcome Trawler forum
There will be a second Hotel that will be operated by REAL Hospitatilty Group that will offer full Restaurant facilities.
We enjoyed great moments visiting the Hôtel facilities and meeting Robin, Jessica and Tatianna who are charming and professional in providing to their Trawler Forum boating clients quality service !
