Everyone in Syracuse knows about this weekend: Villanova is to town for the biggest NCAA basketball game of the year. Not to mention the record-breaking attendance is expected to be 34,616 people and ESPNU’s College Gameday will be on Syracuse University campus.

With all this hype, local hotels are filling up…or are already full. The Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel and Conference Center has 236 rooms and are all full for Friday and Saturday, says General Manager David Heymann.

“We’ve been sold out for a long, long time…for probably 6 months,” Heymann said.

The Hampton Inn at Carrier Circle is not as close to the Dome as the Sheraton, but it has still received many reservations. Assistant General Manager Mark Goodsellow says the Hampton is definitely feeling the impact of Saturday’s game.

“We’re sold out completely tonight already, we’re half sold out for tomorrow, and we’re completely sold out for Saturday,” he said.

Just days away, the attention on this sold-out matchup continues to grow on the S.U. campus and the Syracuse community. Like the rest of the community, local hotels are anticipating game day.
