Lucky us that we could snag and afford a stay at the Statler Hotel, the only one on the grounds of the vast Cornell University campus, Ithaca, NY and run so expertly probably with at least some of the staff from the school's renowned Hotel Administration School. Our visit was in the summer--not a busy time for the University, but... More

If your reason for being in Ithaca is to visit the Cornell campus this is the place to be. Right in the middle of it all and the entire campus is walkable. Word to those not experienced with Cornell: everything is a hike and cars are not welcome. If you want to leave campus a car is required - though... More

Spent only 1 night here, but would definitely do it again. The staff are young, but some of the very BEST I have encountered. They are quick, polite, and very helpful. I understand that some of the staff at the Statler Hotel are students enrolled in the Hospitality School at Cornell, and I would just like to say BRAVO! They... More

We couldn't have been more please with our recent overnight at the Statler. First of all, the location on the Cornell Campus was fantastic. It provided a beautiful back drop for our brief stay and an interesting venue for an evening stroll. The hotel itself has a very upscale, boutique feel and is decorated beautifully, accented by the the requisite... More

The Statler Hotel’s right-in-the-middle-of-campus location and great service by the students who operate it would have earned it a top rating from me (another picky reviewer) were it not for a couple of blemishes that made our stay slightly less than perfect. Rooms are on the small side but nicely furnished and scrupulously clean. Beds are comfortable and linens are... More

Our stay at The Statler Hotel was exceptional - from the beautiful, clean room with an amazing view of the clock tower to the friendly, quick valet service. The room service was quick and delicious, too. We would highly recommend this hotel!

This hotel is in the middle of Cornell University's beautiful campus. High floor rooms have AMAZING lake views. The restaurant is excellent. The front desk staff are Cornell students... Very friendly, service-minded and knowledgeable. I travel a lot, all over the world, and this is one of the nicest hotels I have been to anywhere.

I arrived at 10:30 preparing for a one night stay that involved some intense work. I was leaving very early the next morning, so being able to check in early was very important. The staff stepped up. And the room was sublime. With a beautiful new bathroom, and a gorgeous view of a most magnificent campus. This is an extraordinary... More

Located right on campus, the hotel is staffed with student employees who are committed to customer service. We were taking advantage of a "student experience package" and we're given a room with a fabulous view to enhance the experience. Spacious comfortable room with nice amenities - bathrobe, umbrella, etc. Great room service. What a pleasant stay!

Perfect location to get a sense of the campus. Run by the students, so don't expect perfection in terms of service, but it was very good. Rooms were comfortable and well-appointed. Gym was very small. Only issue we had was with the air conditioning and keeping temperature comfortable.
