Our family will be staying four nights in Buffalo at the end of June/beginnning of July. We stayed last year in a hotel directly across the street from the Buffalo airport and while handy on flight day, it was not "centrally located". This year, since we will have 4 nights, we want to stay in a location that will allow for as much entertainment from our hotel location as possible. We know we will be driving to interesting locales most days, but want to be able to walk from our room and get good food, beer, see some sights and mabye pick up the random grocery item. Because our child is three, we won't be staying up late and partying, but would love the ability to explore nearby in the mornings and evenings. Any thoughts as to the best area(s) to do this in? And what are some of the better hotels (3 star is fine) in that area? Thank you for your help.
