I recently stayed at the William Henry Miller inn and could not have asked for a better experience. Lynnette, the inkeeper, is very warm, attentive and welcoming and has thought of every little detail to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The house itself is magnificent and almost unchanged from its original design including magnificent woodwork and richly-colored stained-glass windows. The rooms are quiet, spacious and well-appointed and the location can't be beat. The house is steps from the Ithaca Commons and more intrepid souls can even make the hike on foot up (up, up, up) Buffalo Street to the Cornell campus. You're welcomed back each night with scrumptious homemade desserts and begin each day with a breakfast so hearty that my boyfriend and I never even ate lunch any day we were there! There is off-street parking, which is always a plus in a downtown area. I can't wait to return!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The award winning William Henry Miller Inn is located in the heart of downtown Ithaca. Built by Cornell University's first architecture student, the details are stunning--chestnut woodwork, Tiffany stained glass, original shutters. Our full breakfast features all homemade breads, homemade English Muffins and bagels accompanied by homemade jams. Our evening dessert buffet is the perfect way to end the day. We are happy to accommodate dietary requests. Within walking distance of fifty restaurants, Cornell University, Cascadilla Gorge and just a short hop to Ithaca College, we are really central to everything. Providing concierge service and a business center, parking is right on site. Parking and wireless are included in the rate. Proud to be a member of Select Registry and Lynnette Scofield received the Innkeeper of the Year Award by Select Registry. ... more less
