History

The hotel school was almost the personal creation of professor Howard B. Meek. He was supported in his efforts by New York City hotel men, a number of whom testified in Albany, New York, urging the legislature to appropriate $11,000 per year for the school. Edward M. Tierney of the Hotel Ansonia stated "There is a dearth of competent hotel employes [sic], and such a course at Cornell would have the endorsement and co-operation of the hotel men generally throughout the country... The war brought a great change in the hotel worker, and the old-time attitude of servility has been replaced by efficient service giving and courtesy. Young men now enter the hotel business just as they would banking, railroad, or commercial life, to find a future in it, and the hotel man must offer the same attractions of commensurate pay and advancement." Location in Albany County and the State of New York Coordinates: Country United States State New York County Albany Founded 1614 Incorporated 1686 Mayor Gerald D. Jennings Area    - City 56. ...


In 1927, at the 2nd Annual Hotel Ezra Cornell, Meek convinced a skeptical Ellsworth M. Statler of the value of the concept; Statler declared "I'm converted. Meek can have any damn thing he wants." Statler and his wife became major benefactors of the school, eventually donating a total of more than $10 million. // HEC stands for Hotel Ezra Cornell, which is an annual weekend-long educational conference put on by the students of the Cornell School of Hotel Administration for leaders of the hospitality industry. ... Ellsworth Milton Statler (1863 - 1928) was a U.S. hotel businessman. ...


Profile

The Hotel School is located on Cornell's central campus in Statler Hall, endowed by Alice Statler, heiress to the Statler Hotel fortune. Directly attached is the Statler Hotel and JW Marriott Executive Education Conference Center (unaffiliated with the chain, which was acquired by Hilton Hotels in 1954), staffed by students and local employees. The Statler Hotel is the only hotel on campus. The Statler is one of the leading luxury hotels in Ithaca, New York and is frequently used for accommodations by visitors to the university. The Statler Hotel chain was founded by Ellsworth Statler (October 26, 1863 - April 16, 1928) in 1901 in Buffalo, New York then host to the Pan-American Exposition. ...

The Hotel School employs 38 full-time faculty members, most with notable field management experience.


The Hotel School's course catalog includes several offerings popular among students in other Cornell colleges, notably HADM 430, Introduction to Wines, a wine tasting course which enrolls 600–900 students each semester, as well as a 2-credit cooking course.

Criticism

In a 1973 article entitled "Hospitality and the Plastic Esthetic," architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable complained of the "banal, standardized, multi-billion-dollar world of bad fabrics, bad prints, bad pictures, bad furniture, bad lamps, bad icebuckets and bad wastebaskets of totally uniform and cheap consistency of taste" which she found in American hotels. "All this is arranged in identical, predictable layouts... you never really know where you are. It is complete loss of identity... The accusation of elitist critical bias, or subjective judgment, just won't wash. Shlock is shlock." She laid this firmly at the door of two institutions: "the Holiday Inn products division and the Cornell Hotel School.... An overnight stay at the Cornell Hotel School's endowed model hotel wing reveals an interesting fact. The existing formula is enshrined here, and no future hotelkeeper is going to learn anything else. The training sample includes every cliché down to the stale air."[3] Ada Louise Rene (Landman) Huxtable (b. ...
