I arrived at the Statler at 1am from a 4 hour drive. They were extremely courteous even at that hour. The parking, check-in and check-out were all seamless and easy. Beautiful rooms, great view of the Cornell campus. Highly recommend.

Very conveniently located on the Cornell campus, the staff at Statler are the friendliest, most attentive and helpful group. Rooms are very nice and I think quite a value. The overall vibe of the place is warm and welcoming

In the middle of Cornell - physically and culturally. The staff works terrifically hard to make sure your stay is what you want it to be. Is there another hotel set right in the middle of an Ivy League institution? Perhaps the Hanover Inn (at Dartmouth) is the only comparable location and experience, but the other hotel(s) don't have the...

My wife and I have not been back at Cornell since we graduated. When we were poor undergrads, we frequently joked about one day coming back to Cornell to stay at the famous Statler Hotel. Well, after 26 years, we finally did it. We came back for our son to tour Cornell as a prospective student. We booked a Tower...

Love this hotel. Yes, it can be expensive. However, I was traveling w a seven month old and it was perfect for our little family. They gave us a pack and play and were very kind. They even dried a baby sheet for me. Hotel is smack in the middle of Cornell campus. I highly recommend it. Oh and all...

Great experience. Staff is over the top friendly and informative. The guest room was very clean. The bathroom was a little small but it had everything I needed. If you are visiting Cornell there is no better place to stay. Will stay there anytime I am in Ithaca.

Whenever I visit the Cornell campus, this is my first preference for a place to stay. Over the years as an alumna and parent of a student, I've visited several times a year and the location provides great convenience and parking. In addition it is a high quality operation staffed by professionals and students in the hotel school. Definitely worth...
