We recently stayed here and were very pleased. Upon arriving the staff were all very friendly and helpful. I can't say enough about how pleasant the staff was. Our room was beautiful, spacious, clean and the beds were very comfortable. I like how all the rooms have mini kitchens, essential when traveling with children. The location was perfect and we...

When the NCAA March Madness tourney comes to Buffalo, this is where we stay. Love design of the rooms, which is broken up by French doors so you have a bedroom that feels separate from the living quarters. Plenty of space for two people here. And we also like that the metro train stop is about 40 yards away. You...

Hotel was clean, quiet and very spacious (king room). Best location for events at the Ballroom (2 minute walk up the street). No parking but there is a parking garage 2 blocks away for $5 per day.
