We stayed for one night during the summer for an admissions visit. The rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly, very professional, and very helpful. The one downside was that the rooms were a bit small (we were traveling as a family of 5).

This hotel is a great property and has the best location for people visiting Cornell. It is a student run hotel, and I have many friends who work at the property. Very nice rooms. You go in and it feels very collegiate and comfortable. Service is great considering it is mostly student run. My one problem is they force you to stay two nights... Almost every weekend it is ridiculous. (Any hockey games, high schools visiting, etc.). They know they can jack up the rates and force you to stay the whole weekend. For being a student run hotel, they are very profit oriented.

Room Tip: Regent lounge is great definitely stop by.

We came back to Cornell for another PDP program and stay again at the Statler, as usual rooms and housekeeping spotless, I have to say that in Food and beverage they have to work on training, staff is really friendly but some of them are clueless about what they are doing, training staff in a Hospitality College hotel should be obvious.

A high end experience with a high end price. This has got all the trappings of a luxury hotel--pricey restaurants, mandatory valet service, the best showers anywhere on the planet. A great place for meetings and special get-aways, right on the Cornell campus.

The downside: I paid the extra bucks for a "tower" suite, only to find myself on the third floor looking at trees and the top of the Cornell clock tower. It's got nine floors, most with spectacular views of the lake and campus, so why, for $600, did I get stuck on the third floor? Their explanation at the desk, word-for-word: "We're full tonight and somebody's got to stay there."

Other than that, this was a pretty good stay. Just train your employees / students in diplomacy (they're well-trained in lingering until you tip them, though). And stop charging so much for lower floors that don't have much of a view.

"You're staying at a hotel run by students" "Really? Ya gotta be kidding!" They weren't & my stays have been fabulous! The hotel's run by professionals but Students do staff it & are helpful & friendly. Great views, perfect rooms. Great size and clean as can be! Restaurant Banfi is one Hell of a great place to eat even breakfast is special! GO TO SUNDAY BRUNCH!!!! This is a foodies delight! Want inside info about Cornell? Ask one of the students. It is more expensive than hotels in the area and it is worth every penny!

We stayed at the Statler last weekend after dropping off our daughter at the Cornell Summer College. The staff, including the Hotel School students were friendly, cooperative, helpful and generally just very nice, and all seemed pleased to be there, quite a contrast to many other hotels. The room was well appointed, everything including the WiFi worked well, and our stay was very pleasant. We would certainly recommend it to anyone staying in the Ithaca area, and especially with any activities on the Cornell campus.
