Let's face it, if you visit Cornell, the Statler is the place to stay. It is run by the School of Hotel Management and is very nice and convenient to everything on campus. But there is no free lunch and it is very very pricey as we paid nearly $650 for two night and $45.00 @ person for Mother's Day... More

I spent the weekend at the Statler Hotel as I had business in Cortland and wanted to tour the Cornell campus. The hotel is very much in the middle of the campus and I was very lucky to be there in early spring when all the trees were sprouting their baby leaves and flowers were blooming. The room was very...

All the comforts of a top metropolitan hotel in the middle of Cornell's campus! The rooms, restaurants and service are always top of the line. I plan my business trips around availability at the Statler. Go Big Red!!

We were exceptionally pleased with the staff and facilities at the Statler Hotel, from greeting us when we drove up to checking us out and getting our car, they did everything right. We enjoyed walking around the Cornell campus and remembering our college days. You must try the Banfi Trattoria, the food is outstanding, the chef really understands putting different... More

Staler Hotel was an excellent place to stay. The staff was efficient and friendly and the facility was clean and accommodating. The food outlets were fabulous. Most impressive was the students. They are friendly, well trained and excited to serve. This was an excellent experience that raises the bar for other hotels.

I stayed here while my daughter and I toured Cornell. She spent the night in the dorm and I wanted to be close by to tour with her the next morning. It was a very positive and pleasant experience from the moment we pulled up to the front door. We were greeted by a smiling, helpful employee who was also... More

Full disclosure: I cherished my years at Cornell. I once invited dates ti the hotel bar, in this blissful but dangerous years when the drinking age age was 18,. It seemed the height of adult behavior, invite a date to the statler hotel, on campus, order martinis and then discuss you life plans with a new acquaintance. For me, staying... More

The Statler is the "teaching" hotel of Cornell University's School of Hotel Administration, which means many hotel staff are actually Cornell students learning the trade. Even so, the students and the full-time staff are top drawer for tending to guests' needs and for courtesy. I was part of a group that stays at the Statler every year as part of... More

We booked the "Student Experience" package at the Statler as we wanted to give our daughter, a prospective Cornell Freshman, the full student experience. And the Statler did not disappoint. Indeed, the hotel and its student staff exceeded our expectations. If you are planning on visiting Cornell with a prospective student, we highly recommend the Statler and the Student Experience...
