I'm a Marriott Rewards Platinum member and stay about 100 nights a year at various properties, most of them Marriotts. This hotel was a great surprise. Incredibly clean, beautiful rooms and great service. If you need to be anywhere in this area, this is as good a hotel as you'll find for the money.

My family and I stayed here for one night while we were visiting Niagara Falls.. upon arrival, I asked if it is possible to have a microwave in the room, rather than using the common one in the lobby.. The front desk, did not even try to check the availability before saying no. I found this behavior rude. My daughter... More

I apologize for any rude behavior you may have encountered during your stay. Microwaves are only available in our suites or the lobby area. I will address the issue promptly with the front desk associates. More

Okay - I am a sucker for properties that have great fire pit areas. It's amazing the kinds of memories that can be made as you are circled around a fire pit (either with family & friends or new friends of the moment!). That's why I was THRILLED when I saw upon check-in that this Courtyard by Marriott had a... More

Nice hotel, we picked it because it was in the middle of Niagara Falls Outlets, and between Walden Galleria. It's a nice hotel, service was horribly painfully slow, as no one was at the front desk when we arrived, and then a few of us ended up waiting to check in. When I was waiting to check out there was... More

Nice courtyard, nothing really in area. Stayed for family business. Easy check in. Would rate 3.5 if able to. Small gym. Front desk not the best. Had reservation price issues that weren't brought to my attention until checkout. Would've stayed else ware if I knew of issue. Lobby is nice.

The hotel had very nice business amenities. It was very comfortable and the staff very friendly and professional. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. The bar and food was good and convenient.

I checked into this hotel with my family on December 23, 2013 and was surprised that there was absolutely no cleaning of the rooms that was done on December 24, 2013. When I complained to the front desk lady, I was told that the house person could clean it later. But, that was already 6:30 p.m. The front desk lady... More

The Courtyard Buffalo Amherst is a good hotel in an incredibly convenient area. The property is clean and quiet located on a main thoroughfare just outside of Buffalo, and a short trip to Niagara. The two downfalls to this hotel are that it is difficult to find the entrance as the sign is small and the hotel is set quite... More

we stayed in october to visit Niagara Falls, very convenient location, close to the park and the interstate. Very clean rooms, pleasant staff, reasonable price. Would stay there again. There is also Denny's very close to have a breakfast as it is a little overpriced in the hotel.

Like all Courtyards, the place was spotless. Every single staff member was very friendly and helpful. Jess in the restaurant very helpful and the young woman that checked us on 10.12.13 around 7 pm. We were in town for the Bills game, don't ask. The hotel is less then 30 mins to the Ralph.
