This is a nice hotel, and the service is around a seven. If it weren't the only hotel on campus, this would be a complete rip-off. The location is great, and there isn't another "nice" option nearby, and that's exactly what you're paying for.

Clearly the best characteristic with the Statler is the location. It is the only hotel on campus, and all others in the area necessitate a drive. Seems valet park is included in the room rate, with the optional obligation to try and tip the valets, who are Cornell students. If you do self park, the hotel lot is only a... More

I have stayed at The Statler several times and have always been impressed with the hotel. The students working there from The Hotel School are friendly, professional and attentive. The rooms are always immaculate and the location for anyone visiting campus can't be beat. The restaurant and lounge within the hotel are really good as well. One thing to take... More

I have stayed at the Statler about once a year for the past 10 years. The property began showing its age over the last three years. The student and paid staff are attentive, the service is excellent and the food is outstanding. The room pricing is high for Ithaca, but you can't beat the convenience when working with Cornell University... More

This is the place to stay if you are visiting Cornell University. It's run by the students to some extent, so you have to sometimes be a little tolerant of their learning curve! But they are very sincere.

Located right on the Campus of Cornell, this is the perfect place to stay when visiting the university. We had a room overlooking the campus and the lake, which was lovely. Room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and the hotel is also within easy reach of college town. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. All around a great experience.

We use this hotel when we visit our daughter at the school. It is centrally located within the University. The service and food is excellent. The student trainees are very efficient and eager to learn their vocation.

I am a former Hotel School alum and am still in awe of how well run the hotel is with an emphasis as a teaching hotel. The front desk staff was incredibly warm and accommodating. The reservation system was down for some time and they were very apologetic and were so attentive when I was able to check in. I... More

When the top hotel school runs a hotel, how could it not be great? Every experience from valet parking to check-in to housekeeping to the restaurants was professional, warm and friendly. The room itself was also warmly decorated, spotless, current, stylish, and comfortable, with very nice touches to make the most of your stay. Having attended a conference at the... More

Staying at this hotel whilst attending an event at Cornell University really helped to make sure that the visit was successful - the range of amenities available, the professional standards of hospitality and service, and the willingness of the staff to assist with enquiries and provide advice made it easy to have a relaxing and enjoyable time. We appreciated the... More
