We held a small event at the Hotel Ithaca on 3-25-17 and were very pleased with the assistance from the event planning staff. Lauren was very helpful and stayed on top of every little detail for us. The service staff at the event were very professional, courteous and personable, and also paid attention to detail. Their event pricing was very...

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...

I paid $160 a night (badly negotiated group rate I admit) for a hotel that is at best a Motel 6. Try to avoid the breakfast buffet at all cost, it is not very expensive, but you will waist your money. The staff is friendly but seemed overwhelmed with complaints from customers about the heat not working, the cleanness of...

Much work being done here. I stayed in the tower section and had a very nice, clean, up to date and comfortable room. No complaints. It's right down town and close to several eateries. It has a restaurant in the hotel which is handy if the weather is bad and you don't want to venture out. My room had new...

This hotel is in desperate need of renovation. Interiors are run down and old. Staff try to be helpful and friendly. The quiet bar does not have enough staff and the bartender was cooking meals for diners as well as room service and tending bar.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review. We are a bit perplexed due to the fact that we are quite clearly in the midst of an extensive renovation, which we are diligently trying to complete. The new mid rise five story building, being constructed with brand new guest rooms, steps from the main entrance of the hotel is rather difficult...

Enjoyed my stay here several times. It's a great place to lay your head down and sleep but that's all there is to it. The "fitness room" is a hazard, it cannot be cooled down from 90+ degrees and the one multi training machine is a law suit waiting to happen. The pool area is very outdated. The staff is...

We got a great room with a view--newly renovated. Wasn't sure about non-carpeted floor, but it was fine. The room was large and clean, with a VERY comfy king bed. The bathroom was excellent--large, well-stocked, and nice clean shower with plenty of water pressure.

We've been making regular visits Ithaca for decades. Creatures of habit, we were a little disappointed to hear our hotel had changed ownership. That didn't last! Everything we loved was the same - restaurant, location, parking, convenience, great staff, etc. along with great updates to the pool, gym, and guest rooms! New fixtures, awesome bedding and pillows!
