Hotel Ithaca is in downtown Ithaca, map here, connected by TCAT bus #10 which departs every 10 minutes from the Seneca Street station and many other buses which depart from Green Street, in front of the Tompkins County Public Library, which is across from the hotel, to go up the hill to Cornell. If you want a view ask for a room in the tower, or for 2 queen beds instead of a single king, ask for the ground floor level. Parking in the garage across the street is $7/night. There is a pub in the restaurant, Max’s Classic American Grill, and the wonderful restaurant Coltivare, featuring 'Farm to Bistro' cuisine, is right across the street. The city of Ithaca is home to many other restaurants and entertainment venues.
