“Solid Hotel and THE Place to Stay at in Ithaca”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

This is the training hotel for students at the School of Hotel Administration. The students are bright and enthusiastic and try to be as helpful as possible. The food is quite good and the rooms are nice and very functional. The gym could be expanded, but you can pay a small fee and use the more extensive school gyms nearby. The location can't be beat if you're visiting Cornell, and there are no other hotels of this caliber nearby. If only the bathrooms were a bit nicer, but what can you do?

Room Tip: Best views face Sage Hall.

Although this is not a 5 star hotel we were extremely impressed by the positive attitude and great service by the staff/college students. A bit pricey for the area but enjoyed stay and extremely convenient if you are visiting your kids at Cornell.

We stayed at the Statler Hotel at Cornell to take a campus tour. The Hotel is an excellent location to tour campus and to walk to "college town" for morning bagels. It is convenient to have valet parking and be centrally located to tour campus. The room was average size. It wasn't too small nor too large. It had a generous closet, a Keurig and mini fridge, with two bottles of water for convenience, and T.V. The Valet staff hustled and we had our car in minutes whenever we needed it. The staff was helpful and courteous. It was a nice place to stay. The room was very clean. I would stay there again. You can find cheaper places in the area, but for touring campus this hotel is very nice and convenient. We didn't try room service but it was available.

Everything about our stay at the Statler surpassed our expectations, other than the slightly dated rooms, but they were clean and comfortable, and the service more than made up for the lack of luxury in the accoutrements. Everyone we encountered provided A+ service -- can't think of a hotel on earth where we have had better service, from the check-in to the room service to the valet and check-out, and everything in between. Really made for a wonderful stay. And the restaurant was first rate -- dinner and breakfast were wonderful. We are still talking about how wonderful our stay was, weeks later.

The hotel is run by the School of Hotel Administration. First rate service and gourmet food in their restaurant, Taverna. Stayed there b/c my son is a student there. It can be very difficult to get a reservation when there are key sporting events or graduation, etc., but if you can plan ahead it is well worth it. Many/most staff are students at this school and they are positively obsessed with delivering superior customer service. I never experienced anything like it...they're falling all over you to help and be super-friendly. Quality touches all over the hotel..too numerous to mention. I travel quite a bit on business and wish all hotels could be this outstanding. Reasonable rates as well.

Love that it's location is convenient to the Cornell campus. Love that the students from the Hotel school run it.
Coffee is wonderful. Food is good.
However, this is not a luxury hotel. Perhaps only when compared with other choices in ithaca.
the rooms are clean and nicely decorated, but small and lacking the details that are expected at luxury brand hotels.

The Statler is centrally located on the Cornell University campus and provides excellent service and comfort. It is a thrill to witness the array of undergraduate students from the Hotel School managing many aspects of your stay. The food is delicious and attention is paid to helpful details like specific directions to events/locations. The rooms are lovely and the beds extremely comfortable. Its a bit pricey to stay but the Hotel has much to offer.
