I picked the hotel for the price and location (near the Buffalo Convention Center). Similar hotels in area were much higher priced for the same amenities. Small parking area and drive-thru area to check-in. Free parking at a commercial parking garage about 2 blocks away. Free shuttle to the parking garage on request which I would have taken advantage of at night. I was traveling with my sister and felt a little unsafe on Saturday night as it got dark walking from the garage to the hotel. The hotel staff were very pleasant and helpful. I felt secure in the hotel itself. The suite was roomy and clean with functional hairdryer, coffee maker, microwave and refrigerator. The climate control worked well. The shower had adequate pressure and there was plenty of hot water. The bed was very comfortable and clean. The room smelled fresh (not perfumy). We were located on the 3rd floor. I slept fairly well but did notice some noise down on the street (emergency vehicles, loud voices, and the trolley/train) from about 11pm to about 1am, at intervals. Amenities included free wireless internet, free dvds to play on the in-room dvd player, free hot breakfast which was tasty (wish they had more gluten-free options), free in-room fitness option of duffle bag with exercise items and exercise dvds, and free airport shuttle. There was a "Fridays" in the hotel and a few deli-type restaurants (Dunkin Doughnuts, an Italian pizza/pasta place) within a block or 2 from the hotel. Be aware that there was not a lot to do in that area of town on that holiday weekend. Niagra Falls was an easy 30-45 minute drive (and you could not have paid me to stay anywhere in that area...crowded and dirty-looking!) If you want something like the "Ritz", this is not the place for you. But if you want a clean, comfortable place in downtown Buffalo for a fair price, stay here. I would definately stay here again.
