Great location in downtown Corning. Easy to find and get into when following instructions. Room very large and some interesting furnishings, but dark, and there was not one single spot ion the room where one could comfortably sit and read with enough light (one lamp had a burned-out bulb). Access was up fairly long indoor staircase, or an outside metal... More

My husband & I stayed here recently for a kid-free get away. What am amazing place! We were blown away by the spaciousness and decor, not to mention the location. We stayed in the Tiffany room. The room was beautiful with a king size bed, leather couch, & kitchenette (mini frige, microwave, sink, keurig coffee maker). The only downside to... More

My wife and I stayed here October 2015 for 1 night. We had a fabulous room, great food at the restaurant downstairs and a nice vibe at the bar after dinner. My only gripe is no breakfast. However, the manageress pointed out the cafe 2 doors down the street where all you can eat American breakfast was served. Would definitely... More

The room was very nice and a really comfortable bed. I would have given it an excellent except we stayed three nights and didn't have anyone service our room. I asked after the second day and they just told me to help ourselves to the supplies in the hallway. It was a beautiful room.

My friend and I stayed here for a girls trip to Corning, and it is the perfect place to stay to enjoy the cute downtown of Corning and be in the middle of things. The room was very nice, spacious and well decorated, and having the efficiency kitchen area was very convenient. I would have given it five stars if... More

Park your car & walk around. You are staying in the middle of the historic district with great restaurants & shops. Our room was spacious, clean, incredibly comfortable & had a little kitchenette. I was with my two teen daughters and we loved the area. Perfect... Enjoy!

My wife and I stayed Jun.12-13/15 in the Arrondi room. The room was large and comfortable. There are many shops and restaurants (including the Gaffer Grille which was very good) right at your doorstep. The street is quite beautiful at night and it's well worth a stroll after dinner at night. It's also only about a 5-10 minute walk to... More

We recently stayed here for the third time and the first in 3 years. This time, and the last time, we stayed in the Majestic. The first time was in one of the two rooms that overlooks the back of the building. The room was nice, but the sun coming in those windows made it extremely hot in August. The... More

We opted to stay here instead of a plain chain hotel; the location itself is prime. We were right on Market street, with all of the shops and restaurants literally steps away. Check-in is at the bar; the only drawback being that it was at 4:00p for a Saturday. You do have to walk up stairs to get to one... More
