“Weekend Hockey Getaway”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

We stayed at this hotel with friends for a weekend trip to see the Sabres and had no problem getting adjoining suites. The hotel was easy to find, near the border and just a 20 minute walk to the rink. The rooms and amenities exceeded our expectations - 2 TVs per suite with excellent channel selection, a mini-fridge, a microwave, free bottled water, coffee and tea at the front desk, free wifi, good hot breakfast included. Though parking is offsite, it is only 2 blocks away and is a parking garage with 24 hour security. We would definitely consider staying here again.

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback. We are indeed in a great location for Sabres games with just a 20min walk. There is also a free trolley right outside the hotel that will take you to the arena. It stops about every 12 minutes. Go Sabres!

My husband and I stayed overnight, with the intention of crossing the border into Canada the next morning; great choice, as the border was just a few minutes away. We used the coupon from the booklet available at the Welcome Center. Had we not, we would not have discovered this wonderful facility for the great price we got. We had a suite for the price of a room - the glass doors that separate the bedroom and sitting room are a good idea, so if someone is watching television in the sitting room, the noise is minimal. The facility was incredibly clean and there were many towels available. The shower itself was terrific, in terms of consistency and pressure. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. One needs a room key in order to access the elevator - I thought that was a clever safety feature. There was a lot of noise from construction beginning at 8 a.m. We were already awake, but if you like to sleep later than 8, we would recommend that you ask for a location away from any potential construction. We would definitely return.

Thank you for the nice comments! Very sorry about the outside street construction. We were not given warning from the city. They are laying some new pipes in the street. Glad it is temporary.
Hope you return to Buffalo soon!

I am a hotel manager from Albany NY for an upscale boutique hotel. I am very picky when it comes to hotels and have high standards. This hotel beyond a doubt met my standards. We stayed on Christmas night so nothing was open, however the front desk clerk was able to suggest a chinese restaurant that he got delivery from earlier. The room was clean, plenty of towels, very nice layout, and it was nice to have a fridge and microwave. Very nice hotel. The front desk clerk was there my check in and out. He was friendly, polite and helpful. Overall a nice stay.

My wife and I visited Buffalo for the first time to see a Bills game beginning of December. We picked this hotel for two reasons; First the reviews and second, the location. It's only like 2 miles off the highway and very easy to get to; you don't have to drive through all of the city to get here. For their price the rooms were great. You get 2 flat screen tvs, a small fridge and a microwave all in a separate living room suite. If I could complain about anything, it was the pillows and it's only because they're very small (they do give you like 8 of them though). There was a full breakfast every morning that was free, carried a wide selection of foods, and was just fine. The staff was incredibly helpful and cheerful all the time. Mark, in particular, went out of his way on more than one occasion to help up us out. Some people seemed to have an issue with parking in the lot a block and a half away. I thought it would be annoying but the walk takes all of 1 minute and you can drop everything off ahead of time, so it really wasn't bad. If I come back to Buffalo I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here twice (once in November and once last week in December) for business. Great location if you enjoy the city life. Withen walking distance of several deli's, cafe's, restaurants, night clubs, theater's, and one subway stop away from the shopping districts (Allentown and Elmwood Village- high end boutique shopping and dinning).
Rooms always clean, beds comfy, internet worked fine, enjoyed the views of the city and the free breakfast. Oh, and one of these days I'm going to take advantage of the work out room and TGIFridays on the first floor.

Room Tip: Ask to have a room along Main Street (better views).

My husband and I were in town for a concert down the street from this hotel. So glad we stayed here. We just parked the car, ate at the TGIF in the lobby and then walked (4 minutes) to the Town Ballroom. Room was clean and very spacious. The people on the front desk were very welcoming and the morning breakfast, which was included, was ok. Only complaint was that the tables could have used a wipe up every now and then.

Room Tip: We stayed on a Tuesday night. Garbage pick up is on Wednesday am (around 5ish) and is very LOUD. Ask...
