Overview

Ideal location for Cornell students and parents
The hotel is a bit removed from downtown Ithaca

This luxury hotel appeals to students and parents seeking a serene and homey place to hang their hat. Located in Ithaca, New York, on Cornell's campus, The Statler is run by the university's prestigious School of Hotel Administration and staffed almost entirely by students. But just because it's run by the university, doesn't mean you should expect lackluster service. Recent travelers report that the management students go above and beyond for their guests. Other visitors say the accommodations boast comfy bedding and the best eagle-eye views of campus. After exploring the area, previous patrons recommend recharging at one of the hotel's four casual dining establishments. There is also a golf course nearby and a fitness center on-site, though Ithaca's other downtown attractions are over 2 miles from this hotel.
