Like all hotels of this ilk there's not a ton of atmosphere but this one is lacking more than most. Lounge area is too bright and here's no bar to speak of. However, the front desk welcome is spot on. Warm, friendly and really helpful

Catherine I, Thank you for taking the time to complete your satisfaction survey and give us feedback regarding your recent stay. You mentioned that you did not see a bar area. Although we do not serve mix drink the bistro does serve beer and wine each night until 10pm. Also, you can purchase small bottles of spirits from our Market...

I have stayed at this property a number of times over the last couple years. It is definitely quiet and out of the way (in winter, and a night maybe TOO out of the way). This property used to compensate for their location with tremendous customer service. There was always a pleasant greeting on check in (and sometimes a little...

This was the 2nd time I have stayed at this hotel. Both times i was very impressed with how friendly the staff was! The first time I stayed I had to bring my dog at the last minute and they were very accommodating (I had to pay extra, but it was actually less than I would have paid to have...

My family and I stayed at the Courtyard Marriott during a visit to my daughter who is student at Ithaca College. While close to the airport the signage for the hotel is a bit problematic. The roads are dark and the signage not clear. We were greeted by Rik who was apologetic for being on the phone when we arrived....

This hotel was easy to access and close to Cornell University. King sized bed very comfortable. Front desk check in and check out uneventful. The hotel was clean, food was good, reasonably priced with pleasant staff. 2nd time staying in this same hotel and would absolutely stay there on a return trip to Cornell.

Signage is always a problem in finding venues once the sun is setting. Was lucky to find this Marriott, spotting it through the trees. desk clerk, Rick, was excellent, really. Chambers were roomy and well decorated with a good TV and mattresses. Would have given the place an A+ but for the morning breakfast- dreadful with the most tasteless scrambled...

I was exhausted after a long day of travel and this hotel room was waiting for me with the most super comfortable bed and very quiet room. One note for anyone who is adventurous enough to walk here from the airport like I did at night (!) I called and asked someone at the front desk if it was an...

The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. We had a medical issue late one night and the front desk came up to the fourth floor to the room to help. Very comforting. Good ideas for restaurants. We were also allowed to use their dining room and microwaves to reheat our 'leftovers" and eat there instead of having to eat...

We stayed in a king suite and loved the room. Large and comfortable bed made our two night stay very nice. The small restaurant had minimal menu but when you arrive late it was sufficient plus they offer wine and beer. After a long day's drive it was great. I would suggest an upper floor so you don't hear people...

Despite the proximity to an airport, the property is very quiet. The staff is VERY courteous and the hotel is clean. Only downside is no free breakfast. There is a bistro with an equally friendly staff and reasonable prices given the locale.
