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.

Room Tip: If reserving the suite, as we did, you will enjoy (and not have to bring) the following amenities: s...

My family and I were fortunate enough to have chosen this excellent property for a recent stay in the Buffalo area. We were delighted with this modern hotel with all of it's amenities. The rooms are furnished with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is an excellent variety of HD television stations available. The kitchen is very well equipped and the room well laid out. The automatic lights (on sensors) for the washroom take a bit of getting used to and the ice maker on our fridge was not working. However the from desk staff offered to get us some ice.
The staff are friendly and polite. The breakfast is quite tasty with a nice variety for all; even the coffee is good. I have stayed with Staybridge Suites in the past and this property ranks right up there with the best of them! Try this property if you are looking for a quality hotel in Amherst!

Room Tip: All rooms are suites. Verify that your ice maker is working.

Very clean and modern hotel right across the street from UB. A bit expensive but will certainly stay again. Nice room with a fully equipped kitchen. A good breakfast in a nicer setting than most. I thought it odd that there were no eggs other than hardboiled and no cold cereal. But lots of interesting choices - mostly carbs. Nice pool and spa. Small gym. Free laundry. Good staff. Easy to get back on main highways. It sits in a little mini mall with a new taco place, a pasta place, and a yogurt place as well as a classy looking bar. Something for everyone. Very comfortable king size bed. Free supper many nights. We missed that but sounds good. Oh, and brownies and cookies at the front desk and DVD's available. All around good.

We stayed there while on trip to Niagara Falls. Rooms are comfortable and very well equipped. They all have small kitchens with all appliances and utensils. Breakfast was good and all staff we have met were polite and helpful. There is a well equipped small gym and pool with Jacuzzi. Hotel is located near main roads, a mall and many restaurants. We will stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

Stayed here before a visit to Niagara Falls. Check in person was polite and helpful. Nice hotel with very nice rooms. Free breakfast was very good despite the lack of any breakfast meat. Also the right elevator was very slow. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel.
