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... More

Restaurant Banfi is one Hell of a great place to eat even breakfast... More

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... More

I stayed at The Statler Hotel for 10 days in June. The hotel is located on Cornell Universitys campus - not far from the center of Ithaca. Big, clean and comfortable rooms and very service minded and helpful staff. Nice and tasteful breakfast, dinner and a "cosy" bar. I will definitely recommend The Statler Hotel and look forward returing at... More

The location is perfect if you're doing anything at Cornell. The price indicated an upscale hotel, and we got just that. The staff is very helpful and polite. Be sure to eat dessert, at a minimum, at the hotel. We arrived late and just wanted 'a little something' before going to sleep. We shared 2 desserts in the lounge. They... More

A professionally managed, but student run hotel, the Statler staff could not have been more welcoming. If you find yourself stuck in Ithaca, which is really the middle of no where, this is the right place to stay.

We spent one night here after the reunion weekend. Every single person who worked here was delightful. Genuinely nice and helpful. It was easily the best service of any hotel I've stayed at - including some very fancy ones. The room was clean, the beds comfortable, and the location is in the middle of campus, so perfect for our needs.... More

My weekend stay was excellent at the Statler Hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable. Service at the Front Desk and Valet were prompt and friendly. The hotel is located on Cornell University's campus so it was easy to walk to buildings on campus. The valet was helpful giving directions around campus. The room had a mini refrigerator with...

At my hour of need during last Sunday’s Cornell graduation, Curran, a young Statler employee, helped me out with one of those “over and above” customer cares moments. He saw that I was desperate to get to my oldest daughter, who wasn’t answering her phone, was probably asleep, and was going to miss her sister’s graduation. I was panicked, as... More
