This Courtyard is far from most of the things one would go to Buffalo for. The immediate vicinity does not have much more than a bunch of car dealerships and some strip malls. Other than that, it was clean, the beds were comfortable enough and the showers were fine so it was good for a one-night stay over.

The hotel is conveniently located off interstate 290, which is a main highway splitting Buffalo. All attractions are no more than 15-20 minutes from the hotel and several popular restaurants are located within 2 miles. I am happy you were able to enjoy your stay as we strive to provide the highest level of service and comfort to all our...

This is in the middle of know where so you need a car, standard fair, rooms ok. The zip code took us to the opposite side of the road so we had to U turn on a busy road. Staff ok let us check in early and found a room next to our relatives.

Both downtown and Niagara Falls are less that 20 minutes away. The University at Buffalo is one mile from the hotel and hosts many athletic, plays and speaker events throughout the year.

Simple fast check-in. Rooms average size, very clean and comfortable beds. The indoor pool is extremely small, but the hot tub was normal sized and very hot and relaxing. The hotel has a nice outdoor area adjacent to the pool and has chairs surrounding a gas fireplace it was so nice relaxing in that area after a swim. The hotel...

I am pleased you were comfortable during your stay and were able to enjoy all the amenities. Our Bistro is a wonderful spot to enjoy a nice meal either in the morning or evening, you should have given it a try. Prices are comparable with any other restaurant pricing. Please come stay with us again.

I have stayed here before and other Hotels around the area with my family, Checked in may/15 and asked for additional pillows which i was given the run around then at the end of the night, was told they had no more.

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Rooms were clean, had a different smell (not bad). The pool was a little cool for our younger kids, but they had a good time. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again if we were in the area.

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.

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...

Came up for Buffalo graduation and I booked this place by accident.
