Canopy by Hilton Ithaca Downtown - a 7-story, 131-room Luxury / Lifestyle hotel, just steps from The Ithaca Commons and within minutes from Ivy League Cornell University and prestigious private school Ithaca College is the 11th Canopy to open its doors worldwide. Canopy is one of the newest additions to Hilton’s 14 market-leading brands.

In Canopy Central, the hotel’s lobby, exposed wooden beams and a central fireplace are reminiscent of an upscale lodge and inspired by Ithaca’s natural beauty.
Modern touches like floor to ceiling glass windows that provide city views, and industrial style lighting give the hotel a luxurious and modern aesthetic.

Throughout the hotel carefully curated artwork from Ithaca’s Historical society pay homage to the city’s history as does the hotel’s restaurant, the Strand Café, named for the famed Strand Theatre, which stood on the site of hotel from 1916-1979.

Color schemes of red and blue in Canopy’s signature “just right rooms” honor the academic institutions that call Ithaca home. Cornell University’s school color is red and Ithaca College’s color’s are blue and white. The just right Canopy rooms offer guests a revitalizing stay with residential features and state of the art technology. They provide everything you want and nothing you don’t need.

One of the brand pillars of Canopy by Hilton is “thoughtfully local” and on that promise they deliver. Each of the current 11 Canopy’s are located in walkable neighborhoods that provide a vibrant and unique experience to their guests. The Ithaca location is a perfect match for this brand. The Ithaca Commons, a four block pedestrian mall in the heart of the city, is home to over one hundred locally owned shops, restaurants, bars, and galleries. Most days locals and tourists alike can be found on The Ithaca Commons enjoying one of Ithaca’s many annual festivals, monthly art gallery nights, or free live music & public performances.
Just two blocks from The Commons and the Canopy, guests can discover why the city’s slogan is “Ithaca is Gorges.” A short walk or bike ride (on one of the Canopy’s complimentary bikes) will bring guests to either the entrance of the Cascadilla Gorge, a quarter mile gorge trail which leads up to the picturesque Cornell Campus, or into Fall Creek (one of Ithaca’s historic neighborhoods), Ithaca Falls, the farmer’s market, Cayuga Lake, and many other attractions.

Hotel features and amenities include:

Meal options abound, both from the area’s numerous eateries as well as the on-property offerings at the Strand Café, which specializes in locally driven New American Cuisine, serving entrees such as Autumn Harvest Farms Roasted Chicken, house-made Gnocchi, and a curated collection of craft cocktails inspired by the classics and infused with local flair.
The Strand Café will be serving a lively brunch with a local focus on Saturdays and Sundays.

Guests seeking exercise or relaxation have a variety of options, including: a 24-hour fitness center with TechnoGym® equipment and free weights, hydration stations on every floor and Canopy’s Transfer Lounge- for guests to get ready for the day or refreshed after a work out.

With 938 total square feet of meeting space, Canopy Ithaca Downtown is the perfect venue for small meetings and intimate social events.

Members who book directly have access to instant benefits, including a flexible payment slider that allows members to choose nearly any combination of Points and money to book a stay, an exclusive member discount, free standard Wi-Fi and the Hilton Honors mobile app.
