My wife and I recently travelled to Buffalo for a hockey game at the HSBC arena. We managed to get a good rate on this hotel and we had a great experience.
The only downside is the parking - this has been mentioned by lots of reviewers! and it is a problem. It is across the street and the elevators were broken and the stairwell was out of service so we had to struggle with our bags through a busy parking garage at 5pm. The parking garage cost $10 which is reasonable enough.
As for the hotel the staff were exceptionally friendly and the room was well presented and clean. The bed was comfortable and we both remarked how quiet the hotel had been, I was shocked given how busy the hotel was.
Getting to the HSBC could not be easier. The trolley is free and it leaves from the back entrance to the hotel. If you want to walk (we walked back after the game) its only 10 minutes.
As others have said make sure you go for dinner at the pearl street brewery (two blocks from the HSBC on Pearl Street) it really is good food and beer! we went there after the game as well.
Buffalo downtown is very depressed and run down. It is sad to see. But we had a great night and found the locals very friendly indeed!
On the whole a good hotel for events at the HSBC we will choose this hotel the next time we go to a game
