A lot of people will probably recommend the Galleria Mall, but I've found better deals and easier parking at the Boulevard Mall in Amherst, on Niagara Falls Blvd. (Your choice will really depend on the kinds of things you're looking for. If you want Saks, for example, the Galleria is a must.) The Boulevard Mall has J.C. Penney, Macy's, Sears, Gap, Banana Republic, Disney, etc. Shops in the same vicinity include T. J. Maxx (also on N.F. Blvd.), which always has super bargains on clothing & furnishings, and Marshall's on Maple Road. Old Navy and Toys R Us are also in the T. J. Maxx Plaza.

Also along N.F. Blvd. you'll find Target, Best Buy, Dress Barn (ladies' clothing -- great bargains!), Barnes & Noble, Pier 1, Bed & Bath, DSW Shoe Warehouse, and Dick's Sporting Goods.

There are a number of motels/hotels on Maple Road, including a Residence Inn that's very nice but a tad pricey. TripAdvisor listings will show the options -- Flint Road in particular will have some economical choices in the vicinity.

I can only add that the Galleria has Marshalls and Burlington in the immediate area. Both bargain center. The crowds at the Galleria have been the worst I have ever seen. Christmas shopping is going to be crazy this year. The Eastern Hills mall is a good option as well with TJ Maxx close by.

I agree with Buffalonian about Eastern Hills--it's a good alternative if you don't want the mob scene at Galleria. You'll find Pier 1, Target, etc., along the same strip of Transit Road as Eastern Hills.

Keep in mind that if you hit the sales right after Thanksgiving, traffic will be horrendous no matter which mall or shopping area you choose.

Farfield Inn on Transit(Freeman Road), Oak Tree Inn, Days Inn Airport. All decent lower end budget options.

Mid range- Holiday Inn Express Airport, Garden Place Hotel, Hampton Inn Williamsville, Residence Inn Walden.

Buy a Buffalo News Thanksgiving Day issue when you get into town, that will give you all the ads. If you can get a Sunday issue the weekend prior at a Toronto newsstand that will help as well.

Better prepare for a long line up at the border.

Happy Shopping.
