Stayed at the Statler for one night during a visit to Cornell. The rooms have been nicely updated. We were upgrade to rooms with great campus views. The beds and linens were very comfortable. Restaurant and bar were well serviced. Only issue was with valet. Two of the three times we requested our car it took 10-15 minutes for them... More

The Statler has a monopoly on Cornell University visitors, but they live up to their reputation of excellence, so nebber mind! It's a beautiful building in the center of campus--easy walking to anywhere including the little uptown area of shops and restaurants. The rooms are huge and have all the comforts (except we didn't get a tub). The gift shop... More

If you will be spending even a little time on the Cornell University campus, this is a Hotel to try at least once. Tough to get into for busy weekends but well worth the effort. The rooms are well appointed, very clean, with terrific restaurants and bars in the building. Suggest Banfi's on the second floor for any of three... More

Staff was friendly and helpful. Got a ride to and from the airport. Front desk was great, check in was easy, and my room was in perfect shape! I would definitely stay here again if I visited Cornell. Worth the trip!

The Statler has delivered very well on my three visits. Cannot beat the convenience and it is clean, efficient and comfortable, particularly in the world of college-area hotels. Pricey for Ithaca but you get what you pay for and we were glad to have the option.

Staying at The Statler, a luxury hotel in the heart of Cornell University, is a treat. The hotel is staffed by students from Cornell's famed Hotel School, who are polite, professional, and eager to please. Upon pulling up to the hotel's drive, a student valet will park your car. In the lobby, you can have a cocktail or casual meal... More

A quality hotel. The rooms are clean and well appointed. The beautiful view is a bonus. The hotel is in the heart of Cornell campus but convenient to downtown Ithaca. Obviously run by the college and the "staff" are eager to please. The valet parking could be more efficient with better communication. They probably don't like getting a B grade,... More
