Our client paid for our room so we didn't have any input. This might be the best hotel in Ithaca, I can't say since I didn't spend time comparing. I called the hotel directly to request a smoking room, non-smokers will be pleased to know the hotel is entirely non-smoking, not just common areas but all rooms. That's fine, I don't smoke in my own house so not a biggie. Got my room near an exit so I could slip out and smoke. Very clean overall, but needs a bit of updating (e.g. rips in dust ruffle, worn but clean towels, etc.). DO NOT eat food from the sports bar located at the restaurant property. Just don't do it. I would have been better off walking to the nearest convenience store for a 2 day old salad. I ordered a filet with a sherry sauce - the sherry had to be given to a server by the bartender to deliver it to the kitchen in order to prepare the sauce. Hmm, funny, I got the mushroom sauce but I'm guessing the cook (can't say chef here) got the sherry. One quaint observation, around 5pm the manager had a Manager's Welcome in the lobby with cheeses and wines, quite a charming idea.
