Ithaca is “Gorges”! Centrally located in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region of New York State, we will be thrilled to host your next event.
Ithaca is truly a one-of-a-kind meeting destination. It is a distinctive blend of big-town cosmopolitan sophistication and small town charm. Waterfalls and wineries, fine arts and entertainment, diverse dining, fabulous museums, quaint shops, astounding natural beauty and world-class educational opportunities are all available here. Ithaca is home to both Cornell University and Ithaca College, where Carl Sagan and Rod Serling respectively taught, and filmed.
Ithaca offers a broad selection of hotels, meeting and banquet space. Choose a chic boutique property, a relaxing hotel and spa, or a mid-size, full service national brand. In addition to traditional meeting spaces, Ithaca offers unique, non-traditional conference venues on both the Cornell University and Ithaca College campuses, as well as a wealth of resources to enhance your programming. Offering incomparable views, Ithaca is the ideal location for small to mid-size meetings up to 400.
