Nice, clean hotel. Just one block from the First Niagara arena and right next to public park with ice skating. Nothing else really much around in terms of food or attractions. We went to Niagara Falls during the day and Sabres game that night so it worked well.

Stayed here for a Buffalo family hockey trip so perfect location to the arena and a few decent restaurants nearby. Hotel was clear, well kept, very friendly front desk, reasonable parking and very large/comfortable rooms at decent prices. Breakfast was a bit of a shambles with incorrect order and very slow service but it did not matter that much.

PROs: LOCATION - This hotel is the BEST place to stay if you are taking in a game/event at the First Niagara Centre. Easy walking distance which is especially important on those chilly winter nights. We booked two King rooms, one for ourselves and one for our adult aged kids. TIM HORTON's - across the street. Fantastic for us Canadian... More

This review is a couple of months behind as we stayed there in Oct. Loved this hotel, probably had something to do with the fact that it is brand new as well but the staff were very friendly and with it not being a huge hotel there wasn't a line up to check in. Loved the rooms, very modern and... More

Stayed over on a Saturday night before going to see the Bills and Packers game. Hotel was clean, staff was excellent and the rooms comfortable. We had a room with a king bed and the bed was quite comfortable. The one thing I found interesting was that there was no bathtub, just a shower. No bigee for me, but the... More
