We stayed here for one night on a visit to Cornell. We arrived at night and it was a bit hard to find as it is a bit out of town by the airport. Once we arrived however, we were impressed with how clean and new everything was. We had a second floor room with 2 double beds. I cannot...

But disappointed by the remodel - It's new, it's clean - it's SO NOT ITHACA (Quirky). The room we had was too small for 2 people and a service animal - bathroom was tiny. It had no microwave and only one available in the lobby. Not so bad for the coffee drinkers (in room coffee) but no way to make...

I stayed here while visiting my daughter at Cornell, and though I have been to Ithaca a few times now this is my first stay at the Courtyard. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet it was around the hotel compared to downtown... especially since the airport is right down the street. I really enjoyed how relaxing it was, and...

After a long day of driving and hiking, we arrived to this lovely oasis near the Ithaca airport. We were greeted warmly by front desk staff and went to our beautiful room. We had more than enough space and both the bedroom and bathroom could not have been any cleaner. The bed linens were pristine and of high quality and...

My son and I stayed here while he was visiting the Cornell campus. It is a very clean hotel. We enjoyed the beer and wine provided in the lovely lobby area. The rooms were generous in size and very clean! The campus is a very short few minutes drive away. There is also a nice mall within a few minutes...

As one reviewer stated, when you walk into a Courtyard by Marriott, you know what to expect. The lobby is comfortably inviting and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Check in was a breeze. Our room was as expected, modern and comfortable. We were very close the cute little Ithaca airport (the smallest airport I've ever seen in my...

One terrific aspect of a Courtyard Marriott: when you enter the hotel and proceed to your room, the atmosphere feels familiar, the staff reacts in a prepared way, and everything appears as it should. Aside from decor, Courtyard Marriott hotels don't deviate from the corporate model. Good move, Marriott. My husband considers Marriott hotels his first and only choice, if...

We entered the newly renovated lobby and got a nice welcome from the front desk. They were very vice and had knowledge on the area. Because this hotel is newly renovated everything is fresh. The lobby market and restaurant were very nice. Our first impression of the room was that it was clean and comfortable. Comfortable was on over statement....

Clean, comfortable, no frills. Small bathrooms, lots of plastic easy to maintain. Internet is free on basic level and while it takes a while to sync up, it works eventually. Very quiet room, despite close proximity to airport. Friendly staff.
