Location- near airport. Almost walking distance but a bit too much. Nothing nearby in walking distance Room - nice, standard, clean comfortable Noise - quiet Bathroom - standard Taxi - need to call Standard business hotel and good quality. Not sure I'd want to stay for an extended stay due to location unless I had a car. Staff- really nice... More

Am here to visit family close by. Rode up as passenger and other family stayed at relatives--one spare bedroom there. They have no room service and their "bistro" is closed between 10:30 am and 5:00 pm. Only food available is from vending machines. Since I have no car until my relatives are available, trapped without real food available. Also, there... More

I've stayed this hotel several times over the last year to visit my son who attends Cornell. The environment is welcoming and the staff is professional and efficient. I especially like the cafe that offers an excellent selection of snacks and meals. The lobby is nicely decorated and the rooms are very clean and comfortable.

Clean large room, modern new decor both inside room and in common areas. Hotel is right near Tompkins airport but I didn't find it noisy at all. The general location seemed a little rural but not deserted or unsafe Front desk concierge was SUPER professional and nice, best I have ever met, and I've also stayed in fancy five star... More

We were pleasantly surprised by our room at this Courtyard. We had a room with a king bed and sofa bed. The room was significantly larger than we expected with plenty of floor space for the extra rollaway we used. It was clean. Easy to control room temperature. Big window. Room light was adequate. Lots of desk and table space... More

Traveling on business, I have stayed there more than 200 nights. It's probably the best you can find in the Ithaca area. Relatively new and in a nice "park-like" setting near the tiny airport. This is a typical Courtyard inside. Rooms are spacious with comfortable mattresses, but the bathrooms are horrendously small. One has to literally wedge oneself between the... More

This hotel is a great option for people only looking to stay for one night. Almost every other hotel in the area requires a 2-night minimum stay during peak-season. The price is great especially compared to all the 1970 boutique bed-in-breakfasts in the area. My new wife and I walked into the lobby all decked out after our wedding reception... More

Very close to the airport and to the malls and shopping. The staff allowed me to eneter my room early in order to get ready for a business event. The room was very clean and comfortable. Noise level was fine as well. parking very convenient. I would return for sure.

This room was immense and very comfortable for our family of four. It was impeccably clean and quiet. My only criticisms are rally of the chain itself, not the particular hotel here in Ithaca. The two beds were "full", not "queen" which is a difficult size for my 6' 5" husband to share. And as seems the rule, the more... More

Typical Marriott Courtyard with a modern, trendy style. Front desk staff were pleasant and helpful but the bistro staff appeared to be uninterested in helping customers. Room was spacious and comfortable but AC/Heat fan ran all night and was unnecessarily loud. The bathroom layout was awkward and almost in functional.
