The best hotel in the area, by far, and perfect for anyone who wants to be on the Cornell campus. If you can afford it, get a "view room" for the views of iconic Cornell landmarks like Uris Library's bell tower and Sage Chapel (currently under restoration) and the hills and valley beyond. Rooms are big and have everything you need, including bathrobes, umbrella, refrigerator, roomy safe, lots of drawer space, big desk, free wi-fi, etc. There's a fitness room on the lobby level, but no swimming pool. The pools in other area hotels aren't big enough for lap swimming anyway, and here you can get a swim pass from the front desk for use at one of the University pools (at Teagle or Helen Newman Hall). The hotel's main restaurant is Taverna Banfi where you can order a la carte or enjoy their wonderful breakfast and lunch buffets. The staff is always cheerful, polite, and helpful. Love it!
