Reserved three rooms for my grand daughter's Baptism, Mother's day weekend. From arriving to leaving we were very well treated. Rooms were large and clean. No noisy air conditioners. Newer hotel. Staff was great. Good breakfast. At first I thought prices were high, but when we ate breakfast outside the hotel it was very comparable.Marriott beds are so comfortable. Lovely...

Stayed here while in town for Niagara Falls. Location is good and about 20 minutes to the border. Very close to highway. There is a mall and shops about ten minutes away. Would recommend this hotel if visiting Niagara Falls. Front desk staff were polite and pool fitness room were nice.

Stayed here for a couple nights while doing work at UB. Located near the university and convenient to major highways. My room was over-sized, clean, and had free wifi. There is a bar and cafe in the lobby (serving Starbucks). Food was above average and the hotel staff was very friendly. Overall, a convenient and respectable place to stay if...

Courteous and efficient staff, clean, looks new and well maintained. Double room clean and comfortable. Bathroom clean and well stocked. Comfortable beds. We had a first flor room but couldn't hear the highway. Had a good nights rest from traveling. Good place to stay if going to Niagara Falls.

My son and I came to visit the University at Buffalo and we needed a room for the night so we picked this place. The room was very good for a 1 night stay. The hotel is situated next to a highway, but there is no traffic noise. Beds were comfortable and the room was clean and free of stale...

This has to be one of, if not the cleanest hotel rooms I have ever stayed in! Close enough to the Falls at 1/2 the price. Perfectly situated for events at UB Center for the Arts and other games/events at North Campus. Close to Hwy for easy access to restaurants and downtown Buffalo and Niagara Falls...

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...

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...

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...
