Wonderful experience from the valet service, front desk check-in to room service this is worth a stay. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Very neat that the hotel includes the students at Cornell's Hotel management school (they do a wonderful job too).

Superb care from the Cornell students. Beautiful views and luxurious room. If visiting Cornell/ Ithaca definitely the place to stay. The food was simple but very good at the cafe for lunch. I wish I were there one more day to enjoy a dinner at the lake and a swim in the waterfall.

The only on-campus hotel option and so has incomparable location to any other hotel for visitors to Cornell. Pricey for Ithaca/Cornell because of its location and catering to a higher end clientele but worth the price if you can get a room (sells out quickly for major Cornell events). Only complaint is the rooms are on the small side, but... More

Stayed here one night while on a campus visit. The information session was in the building next door, and the tours started at the building across the street. Perfect location! Every staff member we encountered was efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly. The room was very nice, we appreciated the complementary bottles of cold water, and our view from the 9th floor... More

Located in the center of this campus of rolling hills one may expect a perfectly run deluxe hotel. It is well run, but not full of the amenities we expected. It is run by students, not surprising for the world's premiere and only Ivy League university with a hotel school. The rooms are comfortable and not overly decorated. We expected... More

Stayed this past month on a campus visit. It is the real deal and validates why Cornell is known for its school of hotel administration. The location is in the middle of the campus and walking distance to any spots or activities on campus or college town. The rooms are very nice, clean and well appointed. The service is top... More

We dropped our daughter off at the volleyball camp and had a wonderful date weekend. The Statler lived up to its reputation and we enjoyed our stay thoroughly. I recommend these accommodations for adults or families with older children.

Excellent customer service from the bell staff/valet to the front desk. Housekeeping was also impeccable. Lobby Lounge had an excellent selection of craft beers and outstanding mixologists. Taverna Banfi offered an excellent breakfast buffet for a fair price. Overall great hotel and staff. Very well managed.

Low reviews are often due to a very specific issue encountered by the customer. This is the case here. I will describe it in this first paragraph, then describe the other aspects of the stay in the following paragraph, which were generally excellent. The hotel was doing major maintenance the day of my check-in, which included an extended loss of... More
