My wife and I were looking for fine dining in ithaca and decided to give Taverna Banfi a try since we'd been to all the other wonderful options in Ithaca several times. It was an awesome meal. The view, the staff, the food and the dessert were all superb. We booked a room for the night and that was a...

I was a visiting University speaker and truly enjoyed by stay at the Statler. I do a great deal of business travel and was not expecting all the comforts of a "city" hotel in a college town. The staff was great and helpful, my room was great, the in-room dining was delicious and on-time, and the overall atmosphere was solid....

Stayed at the Statler for one night during a visit to Cornell. The rooms have been nicely updated. We were upgrade to rooms with great campus views. The beds and linens were very comfortable.

The Statler has a monopoly on Cornell University visitors, but they live up to their reputation of excellence, so nebber mind! It's a beautiful building in the center of campus--easy walking to anywhere including the little uptown area of shops and restaurants. The rooms are huge and have all the comforts (except we didn't get a tub). The gift shop...

If you will be spending even a little time on the Cornell University campus, this is a Hotel to try at least once. Tough to get into for busy weekends but well worth the effort. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, with terrific restaurants and bars in the building. Suggest Banfi's on the second floor for any of three...

Staff was friendly and helpful. Got a ride to and from the airport. Front desk was great, check in was easy, and my room was in perfect shape! I would definitely stay here again if I visited Cornell. Worth the trip!

The Statler has delivered very well on my three visits. Cannot beat the convenience and it is clean, efficient and comfortable, particularly in the world of college-area hotels. Pricey for Ithaca but you get what you pay for and we were glad to have the option.

Staying at The Statler, a luxury hotel in the heart of Cornell University, is a treat. The hotel is staffed by students from Cornell's famed Hotel School, who are polite, professional, and eager to please. Upon pulling up to the hotel's drive, a student valet will park your car.

“Ask for a room with a view.”

“We booked a room with two beds in case our other son wanted to stay with us. The beds were full size or smaller - definitely not big enough for two to sleep comfortably so I would get a room with a king size bed next time. ”
