The great customer service started immediately, even before we checked in. The staff told us we could park out front while unloading and even helped us unload our car and take the cart to our room. They gave us suggestions of where to eat and what's in the area. When we had trouble with our TV in our room, they...

We hit a snag with our reservation but the team here handled it like champs. Hotel Ithaca is part of the Hart Hotels chain but they could have easily gone with "Heart Hotels". Once the new wing opens the customer service + accommodations + location will be hard to beat. Get in now to be among the first to discover...

We enjoyed our short stay at Hotel Ithaca in July, 2016. The location is ideal in downtown Ithaca, with ample parking across the street, close proximity to The Commons with a myriad of good eating places and shops, including coffee shops. Our rooms were very comfortable, clean and well appointed, the restaurant served a tasty menu and the staff were...

I read reviews and many mentioned how worn out the Hotel Ithaca was. I didn't pay close enough attention. The room itself was comfortable including the sitting area and beds. But it was old and tired and badly in need of renovation. The location was excellent and the service was also excellent. just be prepared.

The hotel is old and the room was totally outdated. Not worth the price we paid. We had made reservation ahead of time and they gave us a room on the first floor facing the parking lot. A huge charter bus was parked next to our window and every morning at 6:00 am they loaded the bus in front of...

Dear NMK17, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We are sadden that your experience with us was not completely satisfactory. Unfortunately you had made your reservation for one of main building rooms that have not been renovated yet. Perhaps due to the lower rate offered. In any case, we are diligently working towards completing our construction...

I spent 5 nights in the hotel in April 2017. I had a room on the 7th floor facing the East Hill where Cornell University is located. I had a very nice view of the university outlined against the sky. The free hotel shuttle picked me up at the airport as promised, along with the air crew of the United...

Generally indifferent attitude all around did not make me feel welcome. It took me 10 mins to find someone to serve breakfast in an empty dining room. And quite a bit more to get them to fix the lack of hot water in my room. More than the property could use some renovation it seems. Until then find better options...
