We returned for our third stay at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Ithaca and again were greeted warmly by the front desk staff. Our room was a nice size and comfortable and the buffet breakfast what we expected. We noticed a couple of things this stay-- my husband who always leaves his loose change on the desk and has...

This two year old property still looks new. The hotel is well located for the many parents and students arriving for one of the universities. The Front Office staff was extremely helpful as was the GM out working the front desk. Since Ithaca is in the heart of the wine country, this location is central for either of the closest... More

Nice and very clean hotel. The room was well equipped and the beds very comfortable. The staff at the front desk was nice and helpful. We spent two nights and will stay there again next time we visit Ithaca. The breakfast was decent and if you don't like it, Panera is just down the road.

We were starting to do the visit college tour. Since Ithaca gets cold in the winter we decided to go the last week in July and combine it with our visit to The University of Rochester. To my surprise the motel/hotels were very expensive and we wanted something fairly close to Cornell University. Not being familiar with the area we... More

We stayed at this hotel on our way to and from Niagara Falls. Ithaca was the perfect half way stopover. This hotel was perfect. Starting from the moment we walked to the front desk. I messed up our reservation, Garrett the front desk conceriege could not have been more accommodating, he was also very informative as to where to eat,... More

Visiting someone in Ithaca, this hotel was very convenient and close to them and to multiple shopping choices. The hotel is fairly new and was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of pillows and a good mattress. Breakfast had multiple choices, great way to start the day. Staff was pleasant and helpful.

I am a long time Marriott hotel patron; a platinum premier elite member. However, I usually avoid Fairfield Inn and stay at the finer Marriott brands. In this case, visiting Cornell, the Fairfield Inn was the better choice for location. Wow, I was surprised by our room, definitely a suite and well appointed. Maybe I haven't stayed at enough Fairfield... More

The hotel is two years old. Coming from the south there is little signage on the building. The check in was ok. The indoor pool looked very small. Everything in the room worked except the bathroom door would not stay open. Shower door was odd-it opened out, and due to its location you had to stand in the way of... More

Top class service, extra clean rooms, good breakfast and well located. The facilities in the room are top notch, they even have a little corner downstairs where you can buy food and use the microwaves in the room

This hotel is either fairly new or has been completely renovated! Very clean and modern. Room is big and the bathroom is very large. Nice comfy bed and bedding. Nice staff at check in. Will definitely be back here.
