We stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Ithaca for July 2-5th. This is a good location for exploring Ithaca and the area. The hotel was clean, but the pricing was very expensive for the level of amenities and quality of the rooms provided. Perhaps this was due to the proximity to Cornell University. There is a nice row of restaurants nearby with several choices of cuisine. The area around seems safe, for the most part.
We arrived in a rainstorm and there was a long line of cars waiting for valet parking, but no valet in sight. After a wait we went inside to the lobby and we were told to go park in the lot across the street, which turned out to be fairly simple- a sign to that effect would have made things more efficient.
We asked the concierge/clerks about things to do in town and they pointed out the waterfalls in the area and gave us a good guidebook to visit these lovely nature attractions. We were looking forward to fireworks for 7/4, however apparently Ithaca celebrates with fireworks on 7/3, which the hotel staff failed to tell us when asked about this so we missed seeing fireworks. Perhaps they were not aware, did not know or did not care. It seems something the concierge staff should have been able to provide information on.
The rooms are an ok size, the view was on a low level and nothing special. The room could use a refurbish, with evidence of peeling paint in the bathroom and worn rugs. The beds features a sleep number system bed, which was nice. There is also a Kurig coffee machine in each room, a nice touch.
