We stay at Comfort Suites whenever we attend events at the First Niagara Center - Sabres Games, Concerts, etc . . . the location is ideal, easy in and out - to and from the Arena. Plus it's right near Chippewa Street - with loads of eateries to choose from or we eat at the TGI Fridays downstairs in the...

One night stay while visiting Canisius College. Beautiful two room suite. Very roomy. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was roomy and comfortable. Be alert for towels that are stored inside the shower. Odd location. A weary traveler could turn on the shower and saturate his bath towel! Train/subway is next to hotel, but it is quiet. Very convenient to hop...

Thank You so much for your wonderful and detailed review. I'm very pleased to hear our accommodations met your needs while you were visiting Canisius. The trolley on Main Street next to the hotel certainly does provide an easy way to travel through downtown and up towards campus. We look forward to your next visit.

We booked a room for one night to catch a Flyers/Sabres game. Mike at the front desk was very helpful and accommodating. We got there earlier then expected and he let us check in early since room was ready. The room was clean, bed was comfortable. Free continental breakfast was ok - (help yourself) make your own waffles, hot sausage...

Stayed while visiting Buffalo for the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert in December. The lobby & check in was warm and welcoming after a long drive from the Adirondacks, and I was soon on my way up to the room. I didn't know about the complimentary cookie & bottle of water until I was in my room reading the welcome book;...

We really enjoyed our 2-night stay in Buffalo although the weather really hampered our plans. We had a coupon deal and are glad we found this hotel since we hadn't stayed there before. Thankfully the king suite room was roomy and comfortable so we didn't mind staying in our room more than we had intended due to the bad weather....

Thank you so much for the great review, we are so glad we were able to help you out! It can be quite stressful when travel plans don't go as expected so it was the least we could do to lessen your stress. I will make sure to let Michelle and Diane know of your kind words!

Enjoyed our stay here. Very clean, good size rooms (king suites only). Very courteous and helpful staff. Location to downtown Buffalo events is ideal - Shea's Performing Arts Center is across the street. Parking is convenient but not on site. TGIF restaurant on premises. Close to major highways.
