So this hotel worked out for us for many reasons. First off my wife was going to a conference at Cornell and they drove her there in a minivan every morning so that I didn't have to get the kid (4 year old) up and get her in the car to drive my wife so that I would have the car for the rest of the day. The front desk was really helpful with good suggestions of what to do. Waffle Frolic is a block away for a fun breakfast. Two really good kids museums. Our stay was over the Apple Harves festival weekend making the pedestrian commons streets tons of fun with lots of activities. The State Theater always has something good going on so look them up and plan ahead if you want tickets. We saw Dan Zanes which was great for my kid as well as me. There are great walks to hikes within a 30 minute drive with good waterfall viewing. It is a lively little town with a great assorment of restaurants all reasonably priced (but service expectations were also in keeping of a univerity town). Moosewood was good but honestly not nearly meeting up to all the hype. The pool in the hotel was great for kids and had really good hours (more than most places), and the work out room was great. The hotel was super accomodating and gave us a really nice late check out so that we could spend a leisurely morning swiming before we had to shower and leave. The parking was free, secure, and convinient. The lobby had free coffee and tea 24 hours. The is a Starbucks in the building if you want more upscale coffee. So it was convinient for the conference with a great time for the spouse and kid.
