I stayed at the Hilton Garden Inn Ithaca for 8 days as I was taking PDP courses at Cornell University. The hotel fulfills all the needs of a business traveller. The room was absolutely huge, it had coffee/tea making facilities and even a little microwave, the WIFI worked perfectly well and is free, the use of the business center is free, there is a free coffee/tea station in the lobby and the fitness center is well equipped and convenient to use. There is even a small pool and a hot tub. In addition, they offer a free shuttle to and from the airport.
What makes this hotel excellent rather than just what you would expect of a hotel of this category is the staff. They truly go above and beyond. The housekeepers do a great job at cleaning but they also leave you a little note with a quote of the day, the front desk tries to assist wherever they can and I would especially like to point out Ian who is a true highlight. When I checked into my room, there was water leaking from the toilet flush, Ian offered to send the technician right away, but since I was tired after a transatlantic flight, I asked him to send the technician the next day. Without being asked, Ian personally came to my room to deliver some extra towels so I would not slip. When I asked Ian where to plug in my USB stick in the computer in the business center, he right away came around to actually show me. He was great at giving directions, tips of what to do and where to eat in town and just constantly went the extra mile.
I would stay there again the next time I am in Ithaca and I can recommend this hotel to anyone whether on business or on leisure and whether you are traveling alone or with kids.
The hotel is right in downtown with a ton of restaurants around it and the beds are truly great. I slept soooo well!
