Perfect view from large size windows and spacious room layout were among the things we enjoyed. The location was in close proximity to most Cornell scenery, so it's perfect for tourists who want to explore Cornell.

The Statler not only affords you a central location on campus, but also for exploring the town of Ithaca. Great bed, quiet, yet the bar is filled with college students, professors, visitors from around the world. Always a conversation happening at any time of day. All of the staff are very helpful and friendly.

Visited Ithaca and Cornell for a conference which was held at the Statler hotel. Overall I think a great place to stay, certainly striving to be a great hotel, though perhaps a bit hampered in that it is also a learning environment for the school of hospitality management. Probably the best place to stay in Ithaca.

This is a little bit of an older hotel, but the rooms were actually quite decent. When we arrived we were greeted like we were dignitaries. Valet/Concierge was super helpful getting us on our way for Ithaca sightseeing too! (Special Shout out to Arti for showing us the Cascadilla Gorge, It is a must see!!!) They printed out maps and...

I don't live very far away from the hotel and I was looking for a relaxing weekend with spa amenities. While the staff was very good, they don't offer massages or any type of relaxing amenities. The Finger Lakes package was ehh. The "local gift" were some uninspired stale cookies. When we got to the room, there was a room...

The Statler has excellent service , the staff is knowledgable, friendly and extremely helpful. Statler is by far and the best hotel to stay in while visiting Ithaca, NY. The food at Taverna Banfi is fantastic, the Sunday brunch is especially good.

Came to the Statler for a quick 1 night stay. I had to attend to some business at Cornell thus I chose the Statler since it was located on campus. The hotel was pretty standard from the Lobby to the actual hotel room. I liked that the rooms looked pretty modern and contemporary which is quite deceiving based on the...

I would have rated this place 4 stars if it were cheaper but I still cant believe I paid over $300 (once parking and taxes were added to my base rate of $270). My room had 2 double beds and it was small. So small that the bathroom had a pocket door and reminded me of the bathrooms in boutique...

My wife and I were visiting Cornell with my youngest son who is a prospective student. As an alumni I've never had the opportunity to stay at The Statler, hence wanted to take this opportunity to stay at my alma mater's hotel. The staff at The Statler, which is comprised of hotel students and regular staff, were very friendly and...
