My husband and I stayed there after deciding to take an improtu trip for a few days. We checked out the prices of a few hotels in the area and it came down between Candlewood and another hotel. I immediately got a much better "feeling" from candlewood, even though the two hotels were in the same area and only $10 difference in price of rooms/night. We were told the hotel had opened just 9 days ago. The staff were very friendly, the rooms were amazing, and wonderfully designed. We stayed at a higher end hotel about a year ago, which was nearly double the nightly room price (we stayed on points) and the room there wasn't nearly as nice and modern as at the candlewood. We definitely be staying there again and everytime we go to buffalo. If only they had a pool, that's the only thing I can say that is remotely negative.
