Nice, clean and updated hotel run by students at Cornell. Service is extremely friendly and helpful. Most views from rooms are of the beautiful campus. Very convenient location to stay for a sporting event. Just beware, restaurant closes on the early side, but you can get food at the bar.

We decided to stay here for the night with our daughter who is attending Cornell University. We wanted to experience the hospitality of this hotel run by students. We had a really nice time at the hotel, the room was clean and the bathroom was newly renovated, everything was updated. We had a lovely view from of our window, the... More

This hotel is located on the Cornell campus, so if you need to be at Cornell there is no better place to stay. If you don't need to be at Cornell, I wouldn't recommend this unless you're seriously dying to relive your college experience. This is a teaching hotel, run by Cornell's world famous hospitality program, which I think is... More

This is a nice hotel, and the service is around a seven. If it weren't the only hotel on campus, this would be a complete rip-off. The location is great, and there isn't another "nice" option nearby, and that's exactly what you're paying for.

Clearly the best characteristic with the Statler is the location. It is the only hotel on campus, and all others in the area necessitate a drive. Seems valet park is included in the room rate, with the optional obligation to try and tip the valets, who are Cornell students. If you do self park, the hotel lot is only a... More

I have stayed at The Statler several times and have always been impressed with the hotel. The students working there from The Hotel School are friendly, professional and attentive. The rooms are always immaculate and the location for anyone visiting campus can't be beat. The restaurant and lounge within the hotel are really good as well. One thing to take... More

I have stayed at the Statler about once a year for the past 10 years. The property began showing its age over the last three years. The student and paid staff are attentive, the service is excellent and the food is outstanding. The room pricing is high for Ithaca, but you can't beat the convenience when working with Cornell University... More

This is the place to stay if you are visiting Cornell University. It's run by the students to some extent, so you have to sometimes be a little tolerant of their learning curve! But they are very sincere.

Located right on the Campus of Cornell, this is the perfect place to stay when visiting the university. We had a room overlooking the campus and the lake, which was lovely. Room was well appointed, spotlessly clean and the hotel is also within easy reach of college town. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. All around a great experience.
