    The staff at Cornell Hotel de France was very friendly and tremendous helpful on our visit. We had a couple of situations that required some extra effort and they were more than willing to accommodate. Thanks for the wonderful treatment. We will definitely be back!

    We paid 38 dollars and you can come and go as you please. You pay directly at the hotel and the garage is just across the street. Totally worth it.
