I traveled to Cornell University for graduate student recruiting weekend and the department had me stay at this hotel. The service was excellent, the rooms great, and the experience was overall excellent. I would recommend staying at this hotel if visiting Cornell University as it is centrally located on the campus and provides its guest with excellent amenities and polite... More

The Statler Hotel is convenient for visiting students on campus. You do have to valet your vehicle, but the valets are quick to retrieve it for you. The student workers are especially attentive to guests needs, as are the regular employees. Always a pleasant stay.

Statler is the nicest hotel in Ithaca. Because it's located in the campus; a safe place, a magnificent view, historical buildings, Johnson Museum of Art, McGrew Tower, Banffi food is great, a prefix jogging course(up & down-many hills on the campus:)

Nice, clean and updated hotel run by students at Cornell. Service is extremely friendly and helpful. Most views from rooms are of the beautiful campus. Very convenient location to stay for a sporting event. Just beware, restaurant closes on the early side, but you can get food at the bar.

We had a really nice time at the hotel, the room was clean and the bathroom was newly renovated, everything was updated. We had a lovely view from of our window, the... More

This hotel is located on the Cornell campus, so if you need to be at Cornell there is no better place to stay. If you don't need to be at Cornell, I wouldn't recommend this unless you're seriously dying to relive your college experience. This is a teaching hotel, run by Cornell's world famous hospitality program, which I think is... More

We were the bunch of US and international GMs and owners attending the GMP 2015 program. We had a wonderful time at Statler.

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
