Hotel Reservations: 

A block of rooms is reserved at the Best Western University Inn, 1020 Ellis Hollow Road Ithaca, New York 14850 for Wednesday August 7 through Friday August 9. The room rate for single or double occupancy is $129.00 per night + tax and includes a full hot breakfast. To book your room, call the hotel directly at 607-272-6100 and mention the Cornell Storage Workshop so you get our group rate. Please Note: The cut-off date for our group rate is July 25. Reservations made after this date are subject to availability. Lodging may be scarce due to start-of-semester activities at Cornell University and Ithaca College.


If you are traveling by plane the best options are the Ithaca airport (conveniently located but fewer flights) and the Syracuse airport (a little over an hour’s drive away but has many more flights). The Best Western University Inn operates a free shuttle which runs to/from Ithaca Airport and to/from campus, which can be reserved in advance. If driving, please find short-term parking options via Parkmobile.


On-campus parking is restricted at all times to permit or payment unless otherwise signed. Short-term options (by the hour or by the day) include metered, mobile-payment, and permit parking. View options and maps. The nearest parking and information booth is at  360 Tower Road near Stocking Hall.
