Utica is home to the second oldest brewery in the country, and makes Utica Club, the first beer that was legally sold after prohibition ended. This is the brewery that also makes the Saranac beer and soft drink lines. Brewery tours are available and the age of the brewery makes this tour a must see. Our guests can receive a coupon for the brewery tour, so stop by the front desk for more info.
The newest attraction in Utica is the newly renovated Utica Memorial Auditorium and the inaugural season of the Vancouver Canucks AHL team, the Utica Comets. If a game is going on, we encourage all of our guests looking for something fun to do to watch a game and enjoy some local food and drink.
Don't Go Home Without
Don't go home without trying some of Utica's famous creations. Some dishes you may not have heard of that you must try are Italian dishes like Chicken Riggies, Utica Greens, or Tomato Pie. You might not know that Half Moon desserts are a local creation, and Jelly Buns from Holland Farms have become pretty famous as well.
Even though our hotel is just 1/4 mile from Interstate-90, there are some great options to enjoy to outdoors. When it's warm enough, enjoy our patio in back of the hotel complete with a fire pit and working gas grill which overlooks the Mohawk River and Harbor Point. We're also within walking distance of the Erie Canal which has a walking trail going right past the Aqua Vino Restaurant.
