I had a room with a view that took my breath away and with an extremely comfortable bed, way above expectations. The Lounge and the Tavern serve good food. Students were very nice. One suggested places to see in town and restaurants to try, all very good suggestions.

Room Tip: 9th floor south side view is breath taking

Fairwood_Traveler,

Thank you for the kind words! We are very lucky to be overlooking the beautiful campus and Ithaca valley. I'm glad that you enjoyed your meals during your stay; the poutine in the Regent is one of my favorites! Our students have such passion for our industry; it's great to hear that you were able to experience that while you were here.

Best regards,
Rebecca Rypkema

Take the plunge!!! This hotel is always out to please! We had an amazing suite with a view that took our breath away but the service here is top notch!! Every little touch is something to be acknowledged!! The beds are so comfortable and it just feel luxurious here!! They must have double or triple paned windows because the church bell is close by and you can barely here it chime so its very quiet and easy to sleep in! yes!! I wish I could remember everyones name to mention but Dan went above and beyond at front desk! The bell stand is always above the competition as well, they just really know how to treat their clientele!! We try and stay here at every visit but its not always available as we are kind of late to the game and everyone else already knows this hospitality secret!! Love, love love it there!!

Room Tip: The Cornel store is just across the street and the walking around this hotel is just so beautiful...

Dear Lisa F,

Thanks for choosing to stay with us when visiting Ithaca! We really appreciate your review, I'm glad to hear that our staff has met your needs. We have an amazing team here that truly enjoy the hospitality business, one of the best things about working here is watching the students as they grow over their four years at Cornell. Dan is a real gem, we will miss him when he graduates in May!

We look forward to your next visit!

Sincerely,
Rebecca Rypkema

For the best service pick this hotel since it's run by students at the School of Hotel Administration at Cornell. They are all eager beavers, friendly, wonderful. Stay here if you are visiting Cornell. Food at the restaurants in the hotel is superb also (although a bit pricey).

Room Tip: Make sure if you are a Cornell Alumnus or alumna to let them know. You will get an upgrade. There is...

This was a very nice hotel. The student staff was very nice and good at giving tips. The room was very nice. The beds were very comfortable, and the TV was a nice size. The elevators were also decent, but a little outdated. There was an awful odor in the lobby though. I hope they fix that.

Whenever I can get in, I stay at the Statler. Rooms are immaculate and well appointed. I love the students who work at the hotel - they work so hard to make the guest experience a great one. Beds are super comfy, as are the chairs. It is a top notch hotel.

Room Tip: I love the tower view. It does cost more so only go that route if you will be able to enjoy it.

Stay here if you are visiting Cornell. The Statler is Ithaca's closest comparable to a 5 star hotel. The Student employees are A+ and enjoyable from the moment you pull up with your car. It may not be a Four Seasons, but beds are great, very clean, great free internet and a spectacular location. Restaurants are very good as well. This is the only place to stay.
