This hotel is commensurate with expectations for a Marriott Courtyard. Location offers easy access to a major Buffalo highway and shopping. Numerous restaurants nearby. Room is spacious and comfortable. Free parking. Negative aspects - breakfast not included with room, breakfast items are on the expensive side, no water provided at check-in. We are not loyal to Courtyard so will probably...

We stopped here while passing through Buffalo. The area is quiet and hotel is well kept. All interactions with staff were great they all made a point to interact which is not always the case. When we checked in Mark was in the lobby and is a great asset to the property. He gave us a demonstration of the fireplace...

Typical Courtyard hotel. Very clean and quiet. Friendly staff. We went for a basketball tournament and they were very good about arranging our stay for multiple families and allowing us to be able to check in a lot earlier than normal. I enjoyed the Starbucks coffee.

As always Courtyard Marriot's are standard hotels across all the states. The thing I like about them is they are modern and clean with affordable room rates for business travels as well leisure. Don't consider them if you are looking for bar or a nice resturant on the property. Overall I am happy with this hotel and location. Only thing...

The Courtyard brand is indeed a consistent lodging company worldwide. Thank you for being a loyal traveler to the brand. I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy the food in the Bistro. We will look at all our processes to ensure the highest quality is being served to all our guests.

Came up for Buffalo graduation and I booked this place by accident. I thought it was the full service Marriott which we have stayed at before but this Courtyard is only 2 miles away from the full service, no big deal.. Right off the exit and easy to get right back on. Very convenient. The place looks like it was...

Was visiting family out in the area and my brother and I stopped off at this hotel. Very nice lobby and friendly staff. Convenient to I-90 as well. Rooms are very spacious which is nice. Clean, you can tell the housekeeping staff pays attention to detail.

The Hotel is very good. Really helpful employees. Excellent location and easy access to all points of the city. Positive points to bed and the shower that provide excellent moments of rest. I recommend!

We found this hotel to be very comfortable. The hotel seemed to be either quite new or recently renovated with the furnishings and finishes all in excellent condition. We were making a number of stops throughout the Buffalo / Niagara area and we found this location to be a handy central base. Note that there is not much of interest...

Super service and nice rooms. I am a bed snob - like them supportive but not rock hard. The mattress in this hotel was absolutely amazing. Beauty Rest will get my business next time. I normally stay at Marriott's, but will definitely revisit this hotel. The parking lot had been plowed but still has snow, but then again, in Buffalo,...

We have stayed here several times and keep coming back. It is far enough away from the busy touristy areas but close enough to shopping and restaurants. It is right across the street from the Buffalo Airport. They also provide shuttle and will keep your vehicle for the duration of your trip. The hotel is clean, staff are very friendly,...
