We stayed here during our grandsons hockey tournament. Not what I would have chose for a family stay. There is no complimentary breakfast everything is a-la-carte in their restaurant and not cheap for a family! First hotel I was ever in that didn't have coffee and tea in the lobby. This hotel is definitely for the business client, very modern... More

I stayed here two nights ago while visiting my son at SUNY@Buffalo. The room was great and so was the "white noise" option. I slept great.... I just thought it was strange they had no complementary coffee in the morning..... unlike most hotels I stay at. You had to buy it at their breakfast area.... however, I did get the... More

Newly appointed renovation in lobby has nice appeal on entrance. Bathroom ridiculously small in hotel room..not functional for more than one person staying in room. Guess what annoyed me the most was a) not being upgraded in room type yet hotel was empty and I'm Platinum/Chairman level b) upon room check-in my daughters found empty beer bottle and molded orange...

Room was extremely clean/well-kept, as was the rest of the property. Outdoor space was nice, as it should be in a Courtyard (hence the name..). Pool was small-ish, but well maintained. Check-in was quick, probably less than 5 minutes in and out. Plenty of restaurants and activities close by. Only suggestion is that staff may want to pick a less... More

I fly for business frequently and therefore spend more than half the month at hotels. This Courtyard by Marriott is one of the best. Airport shuttle is quick and on time. Facility and rooms are clean, and staff is very friendly and helpful. A special thanks to front desk staff member Ashley for being very helpful during my stay.

A very nice hotel to stay and not very expensive as it is little far from the Niagara falls. Pros: 1) Good value hotel 2) Clean and spacious rooms 3) Modern facilities Cons: 1) 45 minutes drive from Niagara falls

While my room was clean and in good condition the management here doesn't give you any frills. Not a bad place to stay, but for business travellers that are used to certain extras like coffee and newspapers you will be disappointed. I will say that the staff was great.

Thank you for your comment regarding your stay in Buffalo. The entire Courtyard brand does not include coffee in the lobby, it is not a decision of local management. we do however provide both the Wallstreet Journal and the USA Today to our guests. These papers are located in the lobby of the Hotel. I am also pleased that the... More

Stayed here when I went to Niagara Falls last weekend. Little far from Niagara Falls (~16 miles). Otherwise the hotel is pretty decent and I always enjoy staying in Marriott. Breakfast options were very limited. Close to the highway and easily accessible.

We (my family) booked 2 rooms so we could do some shopping. This hotel is about 10 minutes away from Walden Galleria. We were quite happy when we walked in. The lobby is bright and very clean. We had a quick check in with a very friendly attendant. Even better when we got to our floor-the hall was spotless. Better-our... More
