Each year, I reunite with my 3 college girlfriends, who, since college, have disbursed from the Buffalo area, into Rochester, Hartford, and Philadelphia. Although I remain in the Buffalo area, I too, wanted the weekend to feel like a vacation. And so instead of inviting them into my home, I set out to find a hotel that could accommodate our need to relax, reminisce, and, of course, have fun! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am Type A, in every sense of the phrase. So finding the perfect hotel, involved gathering a list of requirements and a physical tour of various hotels in the local area. I thought my list was pretty simple: hotel suite in Buffalo, 2 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, indoor pool, complimentary breakfast. But after countless phone calls and visits to at least 5 hotels, I felt I was getting nowhere. By the end, I had reserved 3 different suites at 3 different hotels and felt very unsatisfied. About a week before my friends arrived, a friend suggested the Staybridge Suites, a brand new hotel, tucked neatly behind a delightful little plaza, across from UB's North Campus. Though the suite was a little on the pricier side, it was exactly what I was looking for. The room was spotless. The beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked with silverware and dishes, a dishwasher and microwave, and a full size fridge, all of which were put to good use. And the two bathrooms were huge time savors for showering and getting ready to go out. In addition, we made use of the pool and hot tub, as well as the complimentary breakfast, which was pretty versatile. Although we didn't take advantage of the plaza surrounding the hotel, the convenience of Dunkin Donuts, Might Taco, and a bar/restaurant, were also very enticing.
Apart from pricing, my only critique was that we could not adjust the temperature below 68 degrees. But that being said, the hotel was, otherwise, perfect.
