“Does not get any better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Took a last-minute trip to Buffalo for a Sabres game and some shopping. Decided to stay downtown and made a great decision to stay at the Hampton Inn. This hotel is number one for a reason - clean and modern all around. Front desk staff are efficient and helpful. They gave perfect advice re dinner and other local options. The rooms are large and very tastefully decorated. Large hallways with nary a sound anywhere. Practical planning all over. Breakfast is varied each day and again the place is spotlessly clean. Need some extra time after they close at breakfast? No problem they will oblige. Did I mention free parking and wifi in the rooms? You need a room card to access any of the room floors but that was fine with us. Generally felt safe walking around the area at night - not that there was that much to do. Still close to the sports attractions and some nice restaurants. Glad we stayed here and not out in the suburban strip mall areas. They do everything right here. I wish all other hotels were this well managed.

Only thing I would change is if they had mini-fridges in the rooms but otherwise an excellent choice!

I cannot thank you enough for your review of our hotel. Your comments on our team and the jobs we do are greatly appreciated. I am glad that our team was accommodating to you both at the front desk and in breakfast. We are a true value with everything being included in your room, even parking. We love what we do here at the Hampton and your comments are a testament to that. Thank you. We have a great location downtown, central to just about everything. I hope that if you decide to come back to Buffalo for a game or any other reason you choose us again. Thank you for your business.

We stayed here to watch a concert at the First Niagara centre. The staff very very helpful making a suggestion we take the free trolley 2 blocks away, and holding doors, etc. We found the rooms neat and spacious. Beds and pillows comfortable, and prices reasonable. The hot breakfast was ample and changed the 2 mornings we stayed. Advise: go for breakfast prior to 15 minutes before close. It was very crowded at that time. They had eggs, sausage make you own waffles and the other "continental" breakfast options. What struck us was how secure the hotel was. Don't forget your room key. You need it to operate the doors, elevators and to go into the attached restaurants. It was convenient to have access to a Subway, the Chocolate Bar, a Salsarita - right from the hotel. There were lifts to help people with disabilities into and out of the pool and hot tub. I would definitely stay here again next time I go to Buffalo.

Was at this hotel for two nights just last weekend. As it turns out - I had made mistakenly made my reservation for the wrong date - never noticing the error. Upon check in - the hotel desk clerk very kindly advised that we could get a room for two nights using the rate I had previously booked - and that the charges I had incurred for being a no-show (which I somehow missed on my Visa) would be reversed. Really, he could not have been any more courteous - we were already pleased. Moving forward, the decor is very lovely - I enjoyed the frost blue/light tan throughout the hotel. Moreover, the pool area is very, very nice. It includes a waterfall feature and a hot tub area. We were looking for food options nearby - and were so pleased to discover that the hotel has two restaurants that are connected to it! One was a Subway, which we did not visit, but looked fine. Another was The Chocolate Bar - which was fabulous. The hotel was clean and quiet. And oh yes - the breakfast room is on the second floor - and it's the most spacious and inviting breakfast area I've ever seen in any Hampton Inn. A friend that was traveling in our party went downstairs for some coffee on our last morning at the hotel. Upon finding the coffee totally gone, she alerted hotel staff. They promised more would be arriving soon - but they also gave her a $5 Starbucks gift card for her trouble - which she was able to use at the store right across the street. Really - we were so impressed. This is - by far - the nicest Hampton I've ever stayed in. Would definitely recommend to anyone traveling in or near the Buffalo area. Top of the line Hampton and staff.

Enjoyed my night in one of their very spacious suites given to us on a free upgrade! The room was very clean and bed extremely comfortable. Conveniently located downtown with access to Chocolate bar and Salsaritas. Located right in the middle of all the downtown action, but its geared to a younger crowd. Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance, including Papaya, Bacchus, and 31 Club. A short cab ride to First Niagara Center if in town for a special event. Free breakfast. I would stay again.

There were a lot of business people at this hotel, but we didn't feel like a bother with two small kids. The hotel was clean, comfy and the rooms are extra large (perfect for kids). The staff at this Hampton Hotel were wonderful, great service and always willing to help out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone business trip to family get away.

Just got home from a 2 night stay at this property. Hubby and I checked in Sat Feb 16 - excellent help at front desk. Great room with jacuzzi - very clean - quiet!! We had a king bed which was very comfortable - standard Hampton breakfast included with stay - nice selection. Excellent location to Main street where you can catch the train which takes you directly to the arena at no cost - great stuff on a cold day like yesterday!! No charge for parking - great location. If you are brave, and willing to challenge the cold, you can walk to the arena - where the Bisons play baseball, nightlife, or Allen Town...... this would be a very nice walk. The pool area is very nice with amenities for the disabled so that everyone can use the pool and hot tub. The gym on the 2nd floor is very nice and comparable to the one located in the Marriott in Amherst. We will stay here again!!
