Stayed here April, 2013 for a conference at Cornell. The hotel offers a free shuttle from and to the airport and to Cornell. I was fortunate to get Dannelle as my shuttle driver. She is a local and was able to share a lot of information about her hometown. The other hotel staff were quite friendly as well and were very attentive to our needs. My room was clean, but showed signs of needing to be renovated. The carpet was worn, but appeared clean. The decor was nice and the bed was comfortable. The Wi-Fi is free. My only concern was the slow drain in the bathtub. The hotel has a glass elevator and i was able to get a couple of really nice shots of the city. The hotel is located across from The Commons which is a shopping area full of restaurants and quaint little shops. Food choices were great there, but unfortunatley I did not enjoy the meals I got from any of the restaraunts and this includes the hotel restaurant, Maxx. I did quite a bit of walking looking for waterfalls and felt very comfortable walking through the various neighborhoods. Dewitt Mall is a short 10 minute walk and there were always people out and about. Overall I enjoyed my stay at this hotel and would probably stay here again.
