I am always proud to share the Cornell Club with friends and guests, but never more than last night. I had picked Steak Night on purpose, and everyone raved, enjoyed, and I've had several phone calls this morning about how good everything is.

To come "Home to Cornell" in NYC, The Cornell Club is the place to be.

- Penny Haitkin '65

I always stay at the Cornell Club whenever I go to NYC. It’s like coming home. The entire staff is warm and welcoming, and goes out of their way to make our visit really special. The rooms are clean, comfortable, well-equipped, and spotless. I’ve spent 45 years in the hotel business, and it doesn't get better than this. The Cornell Club is like the bar in “Cheers,” only better!”
