Centrally located to campus, I spent the day on campus and was greeted by friendly staff who took car of my every need. I enjoyed the accommodations which were very comfortable. After driving to campus the luxury accommodations are appreciated!

This hotel, for what it is, is a great place to stay. Its not a five star hotel in terms of suites or room size, but it is very well managed. The food is great and the environment is wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone staying at or near Cornell.

This is essentially a hotel school and therefore certain leeway has to be given. By and large, the quality of the service is very friendly and with enthusiasm, especially with valet, restaurant and bar attendants. However, the quality of the check out was poor and the check in was indifferent. There was a problem at the check out which was... More

My bags were delayed and the staff were fantastically helpful; doing laundry for me, calling the airline to track down my luggage and providing me with toiletries etc. Very nice room with extremely comfortable bed, good coffee machine and great TV service. It is very expensive though, but you pretty much get what you pay for.

We appreciated being on the beautiful and expansive Cornell campus- the Statler affords beautiful views all around! The staff is friendly and helpful; many are students of the University. Restaurants are a good place to entertain. Room was clean and spacious and the bed was oh so comfortable. We appreciated photographs of Cornell landmark details in the rooms and could... More

We stayed a week at the hotel for a short course. It was a great location as we were able to walk to all venues. During the summer this hotel is run by students and a few regular staff members. It was very accommodating and pleasant albeit pricy with NYC prices in the Finger Lakes Region. I guess it comes... More

We stayed for a week. It was very comfortable and clean albeit pricy. Since we were involved with an event on campus it was very convenient and within walking distance to all the venues. The students running the hotel and the regular staff were very helpful.

As a student and later a parent of a student, we could not afford this hotel. (all our money was going to Cornell in the form of tuition and room and board.) We were in town for a wedding and stayed at the Statler our last night. The rooms were very comfortable, clean and had an amazing view of the... More

My son and I stayed at the Statler during a whirlwind college tour. We knew we might be getting into Ithaca late, so I wanted to be as close to campus as possible. Well, the location of the Statler, is perfect, being right on campus. There is nothing special about the rooms, however, and the cafe was disappointingly closed for... More

The best place to stay for a Cornell visitor. In addition to the convenient location and incomparable view, the service was top-notch including the cleanness of the room and heartwarming staff. I highly recommend.
