“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The staff is always really nice and the food is fantastic at the bistro. Get the BBQ chicken flatbread. 24 hr Starbucks too.

They decorated the hotel very modern and colorful so you can't help to be cheery.

Rate are decent for the area with great access to the highways.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I don't usually stay at the Courtyard, but based on the wonderful reviews here on Tripadvisor, I decided to try it. The lobby is very nice and everything is new and clean. There is a snack bar open 24 hours per day which is part of the lobby and they serve snacks and light meals, along with starbucks coffee. The room was well appointed with a refrigerator and small coffee maker. The bathroom is nice--not high end faucets, but more than adequate. This is not a 5 star hotel, but it was new, clean, nice, and more than suitable. Front desk staff were very pleasant and the hotel is more compact than the Buffalo Niagara Marriott, which is where we usually stay. We stayed on Marriott reward points and this hotel was 5000 less points than the other Marriott and I'm glad that I saved the points for another holiday!

Room Tip: Ask for a room which does NOT face highway.

This hotel is exceptional. The staff are helpful, happy to see you, and even happier to serve you. The room was very comfortable and clean. I would go back to this property again when in the area. Price was very reasonable - don't let it fool you as it is not in line with what this hotel has to offer. Highly recommended! Cafe was great!

Room Tip: Stayed in corner room - Room 202 quiet and very large

We lasted stayed here two years ago. The hotel lobby area has been renovated since then. It looks great, although the bistro/cafe is rather expensive. The room was very comfortable (which was important in the middle of a snow storm), and I really enjoyed the gym. We would recommend this hotel to others.

Stayed one night pre flight and used parking for 8 days. Shuttle service to airport on time. Pick up from airport was taxi so real quick and they paid for it. Price was great. Wish the beds were queens instead of doubles and no breakfast. Clean and comfortable would stay again as price was really good and was clean and great shuttle service and long term parking.

Modern looking, affordable and conveniently located - this hotel is a great option when staying in Buffalo. The lobby is absolutely stunningly gorgeous, never have I seen a Marriott hotel with a more upscale looking entrance. The room was nicely spacious and also modern looking.
Did find a love note (I kid you not) under the chair in the room that housekeeping neglected to clean up. Another complaint was that the pool was FREEZING cold (the coldest hotel pool ever) and it was painful to even try and swim in it. The hot tub also was cold and we had to ask a staff member to turn the heat on. There is no complimentary breakfast which would have been a nice bonus.

Other than those few issues, our stay at the Courtyard Buffalo Amherst was enjoyable and we would return again.

Lovely, clean bright hotel in great location. Lobby is welcoming and rooms are well thought out and immaculate. Staff is happy to help. Really enjoyed our visit and this property adheres to Marriott standards. Will definitely stay here again when visiting friends and family in the area.
