The Statler Hotel has received the AAA Four Diamond Award for the fifth year in a row. The Statler is one of only fourteen lodging establishments in Central and Western New York to receive the honor, and it is the only such hotel in Ithaca.

The AAA Four Diamond Award recognizes upscale establishments that offer an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail. Less than four percent of the 59,000 AAA-rated lodging and dining establishments throughout North America earn the award.

"It is an honor for the Statler to receive its fifth consecutive AAA Four Diamond Award," said Rick Adie '75, Statler general manager. "We are afforded a unique and compelling opportunity to operate our innovative hotel, in partnership with the School of Hotel Administration in the center of the Cornell University campus. This award validates the tireless efforts on the part of the entire Statler team to make the most of that opportunity. I am immensely proud of all our students and staff for consistently working to ensure an incomparable guest experience."

The Statler Hotel is a first-class property, as well as a teaching hotel where SHA students apply classroom learning to practical experience. More than 200 student employees work alongside seasoned professionals across all hotel and restaurant operations.
