Stayed two nights. Had some of the most peaceful stays I've had. Was a little worried because i was not far from the elevator but no worry. Rooms are really noise free. I was in 415 and it was plenty big. Bathroom was a little small but just fine. The hotel and rooms were very clean. Everyone was so pleasant....

Stayed 3 nights on business . 2 days used a meeting room. Staff very friendly and attentive to our meeting needs, food and drink provided efficiently and to a good standard. Updated Courtyard style and comfortable rooms. A little distance out of town but there are a few decent restaurants in the area.

It was my first experience at the Marriott Ithaca and I enjoy it very much. My room was perfectly clean and spacious. The bed, as always with Marriott, was just great! I was there to assist to a convention taking place at Cornell University School of Hotel Administration and free shuttle was included round way to Cornell. To my opinion...

Overall, excellent stay. Rooms were nice. Service terrific. I have stayed at very upmarket hotels before and it doesn't get much better. It is out of the way. If you have a car, the 3-4 miles is not a big deal. If you don't, they have a shuttle and there are cabs.

We stayed here for one night on a visit to Cornell. We arrived at night and it was a bit hard to find as it is a bit out of town by the airport. Once we arrived however, we were impressed with how clean and new everything was. We had a second floor room with 2 double beds. I cannot...

But disappointed by the remodel - It's new, it's clean - it's SO NOT ITHACA (Quirky). The room we had was too small for 2 people and a service animal - bathroom was tiny. It had no microwave and only one available in the lobby. Not so bad for the coffee drinkers (in room coffee) but no way to make...

I stayed here while visiting my daughter at Cornell, and though I have been to Ithaca a few times now this is my first stay at the Courtyard. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was around the hotel compared to downtown... especially since the airport is right down the street. I really enjoyed how relaxing it was, and...

After a long day of driving and hiking, we arrived to this lovely oasis near the Ithaca airport. We were greeted warmly by front desk staff and went to our beautiful room. We had more than enough space and both the bedroom and bathroom could not have been any cleaner. The bed linens were pristine and of high quality and...

We have been taking our grandson around to see colleges and wanted a hotel in the Ithaca area for one night.

My son and I stayed here while he was visiting the Cornell campus. It is a very clean hotel. We enjoyed the beer and wine provided in the lovely lobby area.
