Was originally a Holiday Inn....you would never know....hardwood laminate floors, leather comfy chairs, super comfy bed with ample pillows and they took the tub out so its a walk-in shower with glass doors and even my husband who travels all the time commented all hotels should have a shower like theirs. This hotel room and bathroom was super-clean and beautiful.... More

The rooms are nice and we had a pretty nice view of Cornell and the commons area. The Lobby is pretty and they offer coffee, hot water, iced lemon water and apples at all times. The pool area is nice. It is only about 4' deep. Some may not like that but it was nice and warm and the depth... More

I am thoroughly impressed with the hospitable service I experienced at Hotel Ithaca. Rarely do I encounter a staff that is so helpful and the mere definition of hospitality. From the moment you walk into Hotel Ithaca off the bustling streets of Downtown Ithaca, you will sense the calming, yet welcoming, aura of the people serving you. The Hotel Ithaca... More

I just got back from a stay at this hotel. I was pleasantly surprised. Nice decor but not stuffy. The staff is always coming from a place of "yes", meaning that they are ready and willing to do whatever they can to help. This is the overall theme that I felt from the moment I arrived. The rooms in the... More

Friendly staff and clean, decent rooms. Good wifi, good temperature control. With not enough lamps, my room was a little dark, but nothing out of the ordinary these days, and at least lack of a floor lamp freed an outlet I could use for charging. I was here before when this was a Holiday Inn, I think, and I'm not... More

great location for downtown Ithaca. The room was clean and bed was comfortable. The shower and bathroom were fine. The bad thing is that the heat blows dry air. Also that there is no elevator. And lastly, the parking lot was full during the weekend.

Booked a room through Priceline and you just never know...Well I got lucky. This place was great. Staff was friendly and helpful, offering excellent suggestions for food. Room was clean and spacious. Bathroom was modern and well appointed. Loved the eco-conscious soap. Bed was comfy and the TV worked well. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I stayed here for a concert, and it was our second time staying (first time was when it was a Holiday Inn). The room was wonderfully, and tastefully, decorated. Bed was very comfortable. The toiletries supplied in the bathroom are a 'Green' product line, and the bathroom shower was fantastic!
