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...

The Statler is a beautiful place to stay at Cornell University. If you're visiting your kids at Cornell then it's very convenient. On the other hand, if you're just visiting the town of Ithaca you might prefer a hotel closer to the shops and local restaurants. The Statler seems very expensive for a small town such as Ithaca.

The Statler on top of the Cornell campus hill is like classical music---you know you will get something good, harmonious and familiar. This is your upscale American hotel, with rooms that are quite nice and well equipped. The wifi is free and fast, and the bed large and comfortable. But it does not deserve five stars because it's not Mozart....

I am a business traveler and had to go to Ithaca for a Cornell career fair for recruiting. The hotel was right on campus so it was very convenient. The staff (both student and non-student) were so friendly. The room was clean and Cornell touches everywhere which as an alumni, I appreciated.

Our room was beautiful, updated and extremely clean. Coffee was provided, as well as tea and creamer. The bathroom was completely new and updated. This will be our go-to place when we visit our daughter at school.

By far one of the nicest, cleanest and accommodating hotels we have stayed at. All the employees were very professional and friendly. The rooms were so clean and anything we needed were delivered to us promptly by very nice employees. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!!!

Why anyone objective would think this is the best hotel in Ithaca is beyond me. Proud parents visiting their child at Cornell might enjoy the location and ignore the flaws, but others won't. The hotel is on the campus and therefore far from the downtown area. There's nothing around. You're paying full price for being served by students who're just...
