Clean, comfortable room. TV with cable and pay tv. No minibar or room service available. Good location in downtown Ithaca. Valet parking available. Free wifi works well across the hotel. Friendly and efficient service.

All in all, it's what you would expect from a hilton, but nothing more.

New, clean, attractive hotel right in the Commons area. Lots of restaurants, coffee houses, bars, shops within walking distance. Staff happily accommodated our muddy mountain bikes. If you're a MTBer, don't miss the new IMBA trail at Shindagin Hollow

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.

Room Tip: Our room had no view, perhaps higher up rooms might have a better view.

Traveling alone, which I have done often, you find that the staff can sometime "overlook" a single person. The Ithaca Hilton staff was warm, welcoming and extremely professional. The room decor is up to date and contemporary, quite comfortable and very clean. Great location in Ithaca....you can walk to all the restuarants, stores, etc. I'll be back.

A great hotel experience, service, friendliness, cleanliness and everything that mattered was more than I could have hoped for. We felt like this was a five star experience ! Even though major construction was going on the street below, the hotel went out of their way to have one of the best trained staff I have ever experienced. and offered excellent value to its guests. Everything was top notch.

The location of this hotel is terrific, right downtown & walkable to everything. I stayed in the renovated part of the hotel- tower and it was terrific. I hear from other guests the older part of the building is quite rundown. This is a great addition to Ithaca, as there aren't many updated places to stay. I hope other hotels follow their lead as the options are expensive for what they are and very outdated.

I am sorry but you are reviewing the wrong hotel. All our rooms are on the 6th floor and up to the 9th floor. We don’t have older wings. The hotel you are talking about use to be the Holiday Inn. Our Hilton Garden inn was built in 2005 and is the only newer hotel in the downtown area.

The hotel is centrally located in downtown Ithaca. The rooms are nicely appointed and comfortable. The fitness room is nicely equipped. The indoor pool, is rather small, more suitable for children than serious swim.

In addition to the hotel's own restaurant, there is a Starbucks and Kilpatrick's attached to the building with access from the inside of hotel.

There is complimentary coffee/tea in the lobby in the morning. Late afternoon, warm cookies are added as well.

Parking is across the street and free with validation at the front desk.

Overall, we had a very nice stay.
