“Great hotel, great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Was on the concierge floor in a corner room. In the morning I had a wonderful breakfast which included Oatmeal.

Was upgraded a day in advance on the Marriott webpage to this room.

Stayed on a park and fly rate which included a week of parking at the hotel. Considering the price of parking for the week it was a great deal for the hotel.

Front desk staff were all extremely kind and helpful.

If travelling out of Buffalo again would stay again on this rate.

Room Tip: Concierge floor

This is an excellent hotel, worthy of the Marriott brand. The amenities are extensive in the lobby area which includes a restaurant, coffee café and gift shop/pantry. The meeting rooms and convention space is extensive; and was busy with a variety of activities at time of stay. My room on the ground floor was perfectly prepared with everything in its place. The furnishings were comfortable and up-to-date with an easy chair, ottoman & side table. The desk area was spacious for work, and the office type chair was very comfortable. There were adequate electrical outlets in the work area, along with a panel that appeared to allow connection of PCs to the large flat screen television along with some other untried AV functions. The bed, pillows and linens were comfortable for a good night’s rest; and the room was well lighted. The headboard mounted reading lamps were a nice touch for bedtime reading in a darkened room. The bathroom area was clean and well stocked. There were two sets of large closets with plenty of hangers. Temperature control in the room was responsive to setting for optimum personal comfort levels. The room service breakfast pre-ordered with a door hanger menu was punctual and well prepared. Check-in and check-out at the front desk was efficient and friendly. Overall, a very nice business class hotel in the Buffalo/Niagara/Grand Island area.

We stayed at the Buffalo Marriott Niagara for one night on our way to Michigan. The hotel, right off the highway, offers a convenient location with easy off/on access for a quick rest stop. This property has a lot of meeting space and seems to target the business/conference crowd, but it is also appropriate for a quick overnight. As a relatively mid-range Marriott, this facility is rather utilitarian, but the service was terrific! The front office clerk was welcoming and professional at check-in, the waiter in the sports bar was very personable and efficient, and the lady on club level was friendly and helpful. The guest rooms, on the other hand, are relatively Spartan. Although renovated and reasonably clean, they feel rather small and dated, and the double-bedded rooms are just that: double bedded. Overall, the great service and convenient location outweigh the basic accommodations, making this hotel a good value for the money

We stayed at this Marriott while shopping in the US. Looks like this hotel is marketed towards facilitating conferences and weddings. We had a room on one of the two concierge floors, but the concierge lounge was closed on the weekend. The hotel has been renovated, but it is clear this is an older hotel with lower room ceilings and smaller washrooms. Rooms were comfortable and reasonably clean (with a few exceptions that I wrote to the manager about with no response...). Not the slickest Marriott I have stayed at at this brand level, but good value in the Buffalo area. Free parking is a plus, and the staff are very nice and professional. The breakfast was not bad (basic American hotel breakfast), again the staff were nice here as well. If the price is right, I would stay here again.

Room Tip: High floor - avoid first floor as it is close to the banquet halls.

Stayed in this hotel, and since they upgraded it, it looks beautiful! The rooms are nice & plush. You can either get a room with a king bed or with 2 Doubles. We were traveling with our daughter so we had to have the doubles. Who renovates a hotel and gets double beds these days? It was the most uncomfortable sleep we've ever had at a hotel. We used the pool which could have been cleaner.

Thank you for the positve feedback which we will be sharing with our staff. Most new builds are going with two queen size beds but due to set up of the old room configuration and the upgraded furniture twe installed the two doubles were a better fit for the rooms. Have a great day.

Great hotel!...very clean, staff helpful and restaurant was exceptionally great and the service in there was amazing(we ate in the bar area, as restaurant was not opened for dinner at that point)
We will definitely stay there again, convenient to Boulevard Mall, restaurants and Transat rd. shopping.

Myself and two other girls used this hotel as a resting spot while we shopped away in Buffalo.
We booked through Priceline.
It was a great spot. The room was very clean, the beds comfortable and the check-in staff was very friendly. Would recommend it to anyone.
