Four years ago my wife and attended a concert at Key Bank Center. As we walked the .5 miles to our parked car, on that sub-freezing winter night, we walked right by this Courtyard. I made the comment, too bad we aren’t staying there, we’d be relaxing in a few minutes. Last

I travel a lot and stay in a lot of Marriott's. This hotel by far has the best customer service. Everyone greeted me with a smile from the Valet service to the front desk at check in. Even when I called down to ask a question they were so kind and answered all my questions.

This Courtyard is in an area of Buffalo called the Canal Front that is under major renovation to move from an industrial to recreational area. Traffic in this area is challenging due to the construction, and can get very congested if an event is underway. Parking at the hotel

We spent a recent Friday night here. We had concert tickets at KeyBank Center and decided this hotel would be easy as we could park and walk. Checked in online before arrival, so upon arrival it took 2 minutes to get room key from very pleasant staff. Room (4th floor, king) was

I booked this hotel with absolutely no problem. Go to the hotel at 10 o’clock at night after a nice dinner and ready to get to bed, and upon arrival one of the assistant managers informed me that I wouldn’t be able to check in as I was under 21. Something absolutely hysterical

Good morning, Thank you for sharing your concerns with us regarding your recent reservation. We want to apologize for the confusion as our management company requires guests who check into the hotel to be the minimum age of 21. I'm sorry this was not clear prior to your arrival and understand your frustration. This may seem inconsistent from your previous stays with Marriott but please know while some properties are corporate owned others are franchised and their policies regarding check in age may vary from hotel to hotel.
