I stayed at The Statler Hotel for 10 days in June. The hotel is located on Cornell Universitys campus - not far from the center of Ithaca. Big, clean and comfortable rooms and very service minded and helpful staff. Nice and tasteful breakfast, dinner and a "cosy" bar. I will definitely recommend The Statler Hotel and look forward returing at a later date.

The location is perfect if you're doing anything at Cornell. The price indicated an upscale hotel, and we got just that. The staff is very helpful and polite. Be sure to eat dessert, at a minimum, at the hotel. We arrived late and just wanted 'a little something' before going to sleep. We shared 2 desserts in the lounge. They were delicious! The pastry chef did not let us down at breakfast the next day- such light and flaky pastries- WOW!

The front desk has pre-printed running maps for you to use. Be warned that you will encounter hills no matter which way you run on the campus, but we did pass a bicyclist pedaling up University Ave!

A professionally managed, but student run hotel, the Statler staff could not have been more welcoming. If you find yourself stuck in Ithaca, which is really the middle of no where, this is the right place to stay.

We spent one night here after the reunion weekend. Every single person who worked here was delightful. Genuinely nice and helpful. It was easily the best service of any hotel I've stayed at - including some very fancy ones.

The room was clean, the beds comfortable, and the location is in the middle of campus, so perfect for our needs.

The bathroom could use a cosmetic upgrade, but that's just trying to find faults in a faultless stay.

My weekend stay was excellent at the Statler Hotel. The room was clean and very comfortable. Service at the Front Desk and Valet were prompt and friendly. The hotel is located on Cornell University's campus so it was easy to walk to buildings on campus. The valet was helpful giving directions around campus. The room had a mini refrigerator with two bottles of water which was very nice after a long day of walking around the university campus. The breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant, Taverna Banfi, was delicious and had excellent service. Overall, my stay was very enjoyable and one of the best hotels I have stayed at.

At my hour of need during last Sunday’s Cornell graduation, Curran, a young Statler employee, helped me out with one of those “over and above” customer cares moments. He saw that I was desperate to get to my oldest daughter, who wasn’t answering her phone, was probably asleep, and was going to miss her sister’s graduation. I was panicked, as I knew that both girl’s would be very upset if the graduation would be missed. Curran’s quick assessment of my situation, his fast action of securing transport, and getting me to my daughter’s sorority house saved the day.

Even though I was not a hotel guest (not this time), and I know that the shuttle service is for guests needs, he took care of me. I so appreciate what he did. That was impressive. As a result, I have told so many people this tale, and wanted to make sure that I told TripAdvisor also.
