Stay here if you're visiting Cornell or vacationing in the Finger Lakes

Perhaps I'm biased as a Cornell alumnus (not Hotel School) but this is a great place to stay. Nice, clean, comfortable and in the middle of one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. A bit pricey compared to other options in Ithaca but worth it. The Taverna Banfi restaurant in the hotel is very nice (but the menu doesn't change much if you go there repeatedly) and the Reagent's Lounge next to the lobby has excellent small plates, burgers and drinks. Many of the rooms - especially the Tower View rooms - have great views of campus and beyond. Some of the student-staff also make a great effort to treat you well. Stay there!

Nice hotel

Friendly staff and very clean room. Very comfortable bed and heating. The hotel is conveniently located on campus, walking distance to all campus attractions. Good in room dining and prompt laundry services.

I really wanted to love it...

As an alumni, I really wanted to love the Statler, after never stepping foot in the lobby when I went to Cornell. Unfortunately:- my check in took forever when I requested a room with a view, even willing to pay an upgrade (which given how empty the hotel was could have been easily arranged despite protestations to the contrary). While everyone was nice about it, very friendly, it felt like unnecessary red tape bureaucracy as I've certainly received upgrades from hotels booking third party - especially when I book with the pay at the hotel option which I had done.- the price of nearly $350 a night during low season was ridiculous once I saw the level of service and fine, but not luxurious by any means, room. Unfortunately, my flight was cancelled leaving Ithaca, so United Airlines put me up at the Marriott on the Commons which was only $100 a night for a much nicer room, much better service, and overall a significantly better experience.- the food was okay, and overpriced - granted I had just come from France and Italy, However, I expected better. I guess my expectations were riding high, not to mention the cost. The view was gorgeous, though.

Statler Hotel Remains a Top-Quality Property

Top quality stay-spacious room, modern decor, and high-quality bedding and bathroom accessories. It is perfectly located with great access to most of the campus. Especially of note is the staff members, many of whom are students, who are gracious, attentive, knwledgebale and responsive. Nice restaurant and bar available.
