Note that all three of these hotels are accessible to the Cornell campus via hotel shuttle and/or TCAT bus.

Other hotel/motel options, can be found online. A decent place to start, for example, are the reviews and other information on the TripAdvisor.com listings of Ithaca Hotels and Bed and Breakfasts . The Statler Hotel, located on campus, is convenient; but we have not made special arrangements with them. Note that while there are a number of hotels in the Ithaca area, some are already sold out for the dates of the meeting. We therefore recommend that you book a room sooner rather than later.
