This hotel has some nice amenities such as a indoor pool and hot tub as well as an outdoor pool. The view of the river is great if you get a room that looks toward the river. there is a golf course kitty corner from the hotel that you can golf for 75.00 with a cart.(it is a private course). They have a band every friday night out on the lawn in front of the river so that was nice. it was nice to watch all the nice boats going up and down the river. Now as for the rooms. they are just ok. They do have flat screen tv's but they do not have refridgeraters or microwaves in any of the rooms except the sixth floor rooms, which is very surprising for a room that costs what it does. The hotel appears nice on the outside but the inside is very old and dated. There are places where the carpet is peeling up and ceiling tiles around vending machines are missing. I heard maintenance conversations on walkie talkies talking about leaking roofs and removing buckets where water is leaking in. there are only 2 ice machines for a hotel that has 249 rooms so if you check in friday be sure to fill your coolers right away as there will be no ice by 5 pm and the rest of the week end. you can get ice at the front desk but is a little bag of ice and you get one. We were there for a youth bowling tournament so there were people that stayed in and around the buffalo area and our hotel was at the upper end of pricing with only the view as the benefit over others. I would not stay there again for the price of 129.00. it is at best a 89.00 a night hotel compared to other hotels I have stayed at and to what you can get in the area. I can't say it was great but I cant say it was terrible, The price just does not match the quality of the rooms and ammenities. Oh and by the way you can rent microwaves and refridgerators for 10.00 a night each from the front desk. what a joke. There are better choices in the area. It might be good for a wedding since the view is nice
