After Dropping our son at College we decided to drive last minute to the area. As a Marriott member we decided to call and to our surprise they had a room. It was very nice! Staff was friendly and very helpful. The bed was a dream. Had a real good night sleep and a very long day.

It is outrageous that hotels in Ithaca can charge $279 per night for a basic room with NO breakfast included and get away with it! They must all be in collusion or else rates wouldn't be so high. Our bathroom wasn't spotless, if you count the hair in the tub and on the floor. Staff at the front desk wasn't... More

As a travel professional, I have been too many courtyards by Marriott. This one is a step above the rest of them. Large rooms, super clean, polite and friendly staff. Shout out to the check-in agent last night 8/10/2015 who was super friendly. Room was nicely appointed and as mentioned super clean. I haven't stayed at any other hotel in... More

This Courtyard is attractive following the Cafe Service Model. The food was just OK and the service was extremely slow owing to the lack of staff. One cook/server can not adequately serve more than one customer at s time. Meaning if you are number 3 in line you are waiting 30 to 45 minutes to get served. Rooms were clan... More

Attended a workshop at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and this was the closest hotel. In fact you could walk to the lab from the hotel although crossing Route 13 is a challenge. Aly at the front desk was wonderful and grace under pressure. Key cards were an issue on my second night, a little frustrating. My room was spacious... More

Taking our son to Long Island for school we decided to road trip it up to Niagara Falls. Not knowing what we were getting ourselves into, we stopped along the way to see New York!

My wife and I stayed here fourth of July weekend for a wine country get away. We enjoyed an exceptionally clean, very roomy and comfortable modern executive king room. Based upon the condition of the room, common areas, facilities, and exterior of the property, the staff (every one of which were very friendly) really take pride in this Courtyard. Even... More

Hotel was nice-clean and spacious. Quick drive to get to Ithaca College which is where we were headed but also close to Cornell. Close to airport as well. Nearby shopping center makes it easy to grab a snack. Fire burning in the lobby fireplace was a welcomespot of warmth!

A very generic hotel with very generic rooms. I’ve previous stayed at the Statler (which is nearby but actually inside the grounds of Cornell University). I would recommend you try that instead if you’re coming to Ithaca.
