Fabulous experience staying here for two nights. The room was beautifully equipped, quiet and comfortable. The buffet lunches were a great feature - excellent choices and fast service. The staff were friendly and helpful, but still remained unobtrusive. Valet car service was quick and efficient.

The hotel is pricy, but then it is on campus, i.e. well-located if you wish to visit Cornell, the campus-to-campus bus stops a fee yards away, everything works, the staff are dilligent, and the rooms are spacious, well-equipped and modern.

The hotel is located on campus and hence is extremely convenient. The rooms are comparable to an upscale hotel. Service is prompt, friendly, and helpful. The restaurant has a good dinner menu and a great lunch buffet.

I'm a pretty demanding traveler and my room at the Statler as well as the service provided during my stay were perfect. The room was impeccably clean and quiet. I called in advance to make sure the staff was aware of my special requests and when I arrived, I was thrilled to see everything had been taken care of. Wouldn't...

I have stayed at the Statler Hotel and it never disappoints. It is run the way a hotel is meant to be run, which is what you will find only at a teaching hotel. No corners are cut. Everything is clean, and everything works. The place is very elegant and high class. For upstate New York, it's pretty expensive --...

I stayed 2 nights here and the location was ideal. The staff was very good; efficient and attentive. Minor complaints are that we were given a dinner recommendation that was subpar for what we were looking for, and also we didn't have enough pillows (we like a lot of them), and they were promptly delivered to our room, but when...

Ok, I am from Ithaca, so I could tell you a lot about the hotels in Ithaca, but I thought I'd just pipe in on this one since it is so popular. Cornell has a world-renown Hotel School, and the students are trained using this hotel, so you can bet they are top notch. And they have prices to match....

Excellent staff and accommodations. Our room was recently updated and very clean and comfortable. From the arrival with valet service waiting, check in to check out the service could not have been better.

The hotel and room was clean and comfortable. The hotel is staffed by students at Cornell's hotel school, and service is generally very good. The location is great for exploring the campus and the view from our room was beautiful. One service complaint - on our first night there, we called housekeeping and asked for two pillows. They were sent...

“Ask for a room with a view.”

“We booked a room with two beds in case our other son wanted to stay with us. The beds were full size or smaller - definitely not big enough for two to sleep comfortably so I would get a room with a king size bed next time. ”
