Friend mentioned this hotel. Very nicely run by students. Parking easy. Staff attentive and they were helpful and shared university perspective as well. Room nice, clean and basics covered. Gym lacking but there in a pinch. Great restaurant also onsite that we found charming. Good, easy location.

The Statler is perfect for any visitor to Cornell. It's central location places it within a five to ten minute walk to anywhere on campus, and to Collegetown. It can definitely get pricey, and is sold out more frequently than would be preferable--so plan ahead and book as early as possible. The students of the Hotel School hold various positions... More

I booked this hotel based on previous reviews, it is all true. This hotel did not disappoint. It is spotless and location is perfect for those visiting Cornell. One more thing to add, while the hotel has a fancy sit down restaurant on the 2nd floor. There are also 2 cafeteria like eateries down in the basement. Thanks to a... More

Gmw0713 We are very glad to have met your expectations! Our location in the heart of Cornell’s campus is impossible to beat. We are very fortunate to have fantastic views, and to be right across the street from Day Hall, which is where all of the campus tours take place from. The Statler Hotel is very unique in that the...

I visited Cornell University with my daughter and this is the only hotel on campus so definitely a plus. You can walk right outside and be in the heart of the campus. It is expensive in comparison to surrounding area hotels but the convenience is worth the expense. Students from the Hotel school help run the place so they are... More

The Statler is a superb hotel. Modern, comfortable, clean, exceptionally well-training and professional staff. Excellent WiFi. My only suggestion is that the Statler needs a quiet coffee shop. What was supposed to be a coffee shop has morphed into a loud student bar.

Most staff are a bunch of university students (on training/internship) doing an impeccable job to be friendly, professional, attentive, smiling, happy to help, ready to go the extra mile, etc...) They deserve an A+

Stayed at the Statler for our second time last month (over Presidents' Day) to attend an info session on campus. This time we had Room 912, a Superior View Double—and superior doesn't even cover it!! We had the most breathtaking view over West Campus—it was like a postcard or Christmas Card, and every time we looked toward the window we... More

Located in the heart of the Cornell campus, this is a superb hotel that enhances a visit to Cornell. The rooms are lovely and comfortable; the food is excellent as is the small shop off the lobby. The student staff is friendly and helpful. A minor complaint is that the gym could be improved a bit.

Cornell operates the oldest hospitality school in the world, so it shouldn't be surprising that they have a luxury hotel on campus that serves as a "teaching school" for the programme.
