We stayed in Buffalo for a boys weekend to see the Patriots/Bills game. Overall the hotel was good.. The rooms were clean and well appointed, the staff friendly, nice pool and ample parking. It may have been my mistake but we expected a complimentary breakfast buffet, as we have become accustomed to at previous visits to Buffalo Marriott hotels. Instead... More

We went for a 2-night stay for a week-end of shopping. The hotel is in a good location, easy to get to, close to the mall and shops. Room was spacious and very clean, bed was comfy, and the place was quiet. We had breakfast one morning at the cafe in the lobby, a tiny bit pricey but excellent food... More

Just stayed here for a quick overnight. Great, friendly, competent front desk staff. Also enjoyed talking to the young man handling the Bistro late in the evening. You can always depend on a Courtyard for fine service and cleanliness. I DON'T miss the free breakfast confusion at other hotels! Nice choices here that you pay a bit for. Be aware... More

A nicely furnished, comfortable Courtyard. Excellent bed! Some years ago I realized the bed is what matters in a hotel. I am not here to watch TV or swim, I'm here to sleep and this was a vet, very nice bed. Good shower water pressure. What else do you need! About 4 miles from one the local The Anchor Bar.... More

This is located in a quiet area. It was clean. The Bistro was prompt on service and delivered good food. I wish you didn't have to pay for the coffee but that is how it is. The workout room had working equipment and Lysol wipes. The front desk and staff were friendly and helpful when trying to address our questions.

This Courtyard is almost 20 years old, and to some extent it shows. First, my room key would not open the outside door's. Next, I had to be moved from my preferred first floor room to the third floor because the a/c fan bearings had failed. However, I only had to spend one night on the third floor, I was... More

After staying many years at the Full service Marriott on Millersport I thought I would try the Courtyard on Sheridan. I must say that the upon entering we were greeted by check in hostesses who were very professional and friendly. They recommended a few restaurants that would be open on Labor day and ensured our stay was enjoyable. Asked for... More

Stayed here for a brief visit before some USA shopping. Location was easy to find off the interstate. Lot's of parking.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on July 2nd for one night. Our room was very clean and spacious.
