This hotel was perfect for our girls wine weekend. We had two rooms for five of us. Each room was large and had two king size beds. The hotel has a wonderful restaurant on site and spa. Loved that this hotel had hiking trails that started on the property.

Visited Ithaca for a business trip and was pleasantly surprised when my company booked my stay at La Tourelle. Staff was WONDERFUL!!! So incredibly friendly and accommodating. I stayed in the Marseille room which is recently renovated and beautiful. A wonderful view of the meadow and valley. Great soaking jacuzzi tub and double shower heads with nice strong water pressure.... More

When in Ithaca for a class at Cornell, a few of visited La Tourelle's Spa and Restaurant. Both were excellent. The spa offered steam room, sauna and two nice relaxation rooms. The locker rooms, sauna and steam room could be nicer but are consistent with other spas of this size I've visited. The massage was very well done. The steak... More

Certainly not worth the wait and a bit embarrassing as it was especial girls spad day and overnight. As we entered the door or our room was split at the bottom, bed rumpled and dust ruffle askew. Bathroom from the 60s as we ventured further with less than luxury towels and amenities. Drapes were old, musty and dusty and there... More

We visited La Tourelle for a long birthday weekend getaway for some skiing and food/drink in Ithaca. Despite being in the dead of winter, it is clearly a beautiful property. The exterior of the building is stunning; the inside is lovely, but overall a little dated and tired. The cleanliness of our room was top notch, but little things stuck... More

I live about an hour from Ithaca and went with my Mom and Aunt from out of town for a spa day and overnight. I had always thought La Tourelle would be a lovely hotel but was disappointed. The hotel was dated and in need of some updating. It did not seem as clean as it could be but that... More

I took my wife for a surprise birthday spa treatment at La Tourelle's spa, and the experience made my wife VERY happy. The staff took such wonderful care of her, and truly made her birthday special. It is a family owned business and it shows in the pride of the staff and upkeep of the facility and grounds. I would... More

Wonderful mid-range French chateaux-style destination hotel that did not disappoint. Went to Ithaca on business with my teen-age daughter and we found it to be welcoming, cozy and well-appointed. We went in winter so didn't get out to walk the impressive grounds, but they were pastoral and pretty. They have a bistro with a lovely breakfast, and we enjoyed pampering... More

With two in college here, we have been going regularly to Ithaca for 4.5 years. Usually, we stay at the Super 8 because it is clean, convenient, and comfortable. Last weekend we decided to splurge and stay at La Tourelle. It is EXPENSIVE. Our bed had a VERY soft mattress topper, and DEEP holes where past guests would sit on... More
