The Statler Hotel and the Cornell Peter and Stephanie Nolan School of Hospitality are boldly innovating the standards of service for the hospitality industry. Founded by hotel legend E.M. Statler, who frequently said, "Life is service," the Hospitality School attracts a diverse, global student body, many of whom work in the hotel during their time in school. Many alumni have gone on to become leaders in the industry.

The hotel's legacy of hospitality began in the 1950s with the Statler Inn and then became The Statler Hotel in 1989 after a $30 million complete rebuild. The transformation ushered in a new chapter of hospitality leadership and innovation.

Today, the AAA Four Diamond Award-winning property provides the best hospitality in Upper New York State. The hotel's management team, staff, and students take great pride in continuing its tradition of service to guests while setting new standards for hospitality and leadership development.
