The location is bad (unless you need to be at the airport in the morning). They don't provide any free tea or coffee as advertised. It's too expensive for the area (especially given the fact that they don't provide a free breakfast as other hotels in the area). I think for the same price you can find a better hotel... More

This is a great location if you have a student at Cornell, especially if they are in housing on North Campus. A quiet location out of the hustle of Ithaca, but easy access if you have a car. There isn't much around the hotel, not in walking distance, but a 5 minute drive to the mall with some restaurants nearby.... More

In a commercial area but very close to Cornell North Campus. Visited for parents weekend at Cornell, and while I liked the hotel, prices were outrageous. Manhattan prices in upstate NY. Met other parents who stayed 45 minutes from campus due to the prices locally. But it is a nice hotel. Not much around, especially on weekends, seems more of... More

We stayed here for one night, as the Statler Hotel was full for that night. This is a suitable back up, especially when travelling via Tompkins airport. However, overall the stay disappointed. The front desk attendant appeared distracted when checking us in. We had a reservation for a King and Sofa room for three adults, as this was the only... More

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Courtyard Ithaca and for taking the time to write a review of your experience. I apologize that we did not follow through on your request.

Clean spacious room. Pleasant , courteous staff. We checked in. The complimentary shuttle took us into town. We had dinner. The shuttle then dropped us off elsewhere and picked us up again. I would recommend this spot. If you are visiting Cornell. You are minutes away. Literally. Most definitely come here again.

Great location, very well run, exceptionally clean. We actually bring guests here to enjoy the fire pit. It is away from the downtown buzz which makes it a relaxing oasis. Try it and you will return for sure. Beware the cost of drinks at the bar. We travel a lot and thought the prices were outrageously high. They should focus... More

I stayed for what was originally to be 3 nights at the end of September as part of a birding group that was staying at the hotel. Satisfied with the property, my room was nice and the staff was very helpful. Very quiet hotel. Due to many delays at the airport due to the Pope's visit to the US I... More

Had a recent 2 night stay at this property, located in a tech-based business park. As others have stated, while it seems out of the way it is close to everything - there are groceries, nice restaurants and a wine store within a 5 to 10 minute drive. The grounds and area are actually very pretty and green. We visited... More

I stayed here with my family while visiting my daughter at Cornell. The best thing about this hotel was that everything seemed very fresh and new, from the lobby to the guest rooms to the outdoor patio. The room itself was standard Marriott Courtyard - no frills but clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very small but new and clean.... More

Nice hotel a bit outside of Ithaca proper nearer the airport. Suites are beautifull and there is a very nice outside patio area. They have a bar area where you can order food on a somewhat limited menu and the same area is available for a hot breakfast. You have to order it, as it is not a buffet and... More
