We have never been disappointed! The beds are so comfortable, room amenities are all there and it's a nice touch to have complimentary bottled water in your room. If your needs are inside of Cornell , there is no better location possible!! The views from or around the hotel are just as great! The staff is so warm and inviting. We stay here every chance we get. Be prepared though if you booking during any type of event, it gets booked solids months in advance for good reason !!

Stayed here for a conference. The rooms were immaculate, the bed was firm with a nice feather topper and very comfortable and it was very quiet (could not hear anyone in the hall, next door or the cooling system coming on and off). The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food provided was excellent, as was the service. The hotel is right on campus, great for visiting Cornell. There were lots of restaurants within walking distance but it is very hilly to get back to campus.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room facing the clock tower on a high floor for the amazing view.

Knowing that this hotel was connected with the world-leading hospitality management program at Cornell, I raised my expectations before arriaval.

The hotel did not disappoint. The staff provided excellent service and the room and facilities were also excellent. I had a wonderful view of the campus and rolling hills from my room. The TV was a nice 42'' flatscreen that had an excellent choice of channels. The towels were soft and the room was super clean. The bed was also great as well.

If I am ever in the area again, I would not hesitate on staying here again. Even if you are not in Ithaca visiting Cornell, stay here anyways since it probably the best hotel in the area.

Room Tip: Get a higher floor to get the best view of campus - but from what I could tell, there are really ver...

I stayed at the Statler for one night at the end of April. The hotel is on the Cornell University campus and very close to the college town area with restaurants. Though beware, the campus is a little hilly, so though restaurants and such may not appear too far away, walking back could be all uphill.

I arrived at the Ithaca airport, used the phone there to call the Statler hotel to have a shuttle pick me up. I waited about 15 minutes for a shuttle, and had a very friendly employee help me with my bag and transport me to Statler, which was about a 10 minute drive. The Ithaca area is beautiful!

The staff was helpful, the room was a good size, with all of the amenities I needed (including a Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, and wireless). I also had free access to the Business Center (a private room with free access to a computer, internet and printer).

There is no stay quite like the Statler. The business exists as a training grounds for the students of the Hotel School at Cornell, which pumps a personality and life into the experience that you won't get anywhere else.

You might expect a business that is constantly training employees to have constant service issues. The fact is, the full time staff and the students at the Statler all execute brilliantly... and if they make an error, they are eager to correct it. Trust me, if you have an issue...speak up (preferably politely). You will rarely find the type of passion and care that the employees at Statler show at any other property in the US.

Not possible to beat the location, either. Right in the center of Cornell's campus, it is walkable to everywhere on Cornell campus and Collegetown, and a free shuttle to the airport. (not quite as convenient to downtown ithaca or Ithaca college, but it's an easy drive).

If you're visiting Cornell, there's no better option.

Room Tip: There's nothing like a sunset view of the gorge from a high-floor room at Statler...easily the b...

This was my first visit to the Statler Hotel. I was visiting a student. The room was perfectly comfortable. Everything was considered to provide a comfortable stay. The lighting and mirrors were perfectly placed. The Frette linens, including bathrobe, were super soft and substantial. The bed was so comfortable that my husband suggested buying one just like it for our room at home! The in-room refrigerator was silent, and complimentary water bottles were replenished daily. The included wi-fi was fast. The Keurig coffee machine included regular and decaf coffee, plus tea bags from Harney and Sons, with ceramic Cornell mugs. This made a very comfortable home away from home for our long weekend of visiting. Plus, the airport shuttle was very convenient. We did not need a car. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Statler Hotel for an outstanding experience!

If you're traveling to Ithaca, NY, your only high-end options are the Statler Hotel, the Hilton Garden Inn, or La Tourelle Spa. The Statler is the most expensive, but it is worth the price. It's location, in the center of Cornell's campus, is legendary. It boasts the best views on campus and the recently renovated rooms are worthy of New York or LA. The restaurant, Taverna Banfi, is first class. Finally, the staff are unusually attentive because they are students in the Hotel School and eager to get a good grade.
