We arrived on March 14, 2011 for a stay of two days. We found the room very clean and comfortable. The rollaway bed that we requested was very comfortable - I slept in it myself as my kids overruled. The location of this hotel can be advantageous depending on your purpose of travel. We were all over the city of Buffalo and found that travelling to and from the hotel was simple and usually quick. Our trip to the HSBC Arena for a Buffalo Sabres game was easy. However, we warn all Buffalo Sabres fans that parking your car near the arena will be a nightmare when you leave because the local police for some reason closes off access to I-190 ramps that we planned to use. We were stuck in downtown Buffalo going around and around until we decided to drive up Main. What a disgrace! I would suggest Marriott build a hotel next to the arena. Anyways, we visited the Buffalo Zoo, a nice gem, and it's only a 15 minute drive from the hotel. The breakfast buffet at the Blue Fire Bar and Grill downstairs near the hotel lobby may seem overpriced but worth it. No worthy alternative is near the hotel by for those who don't want to pay. There's lots of shopping within 10 minutes of the hotel at Boulevard Mall and the Walden Galleria, but we recommend you drive up to Military Drive in Niagara Falls, about 30 minutes north of the hotel for great deals on nice fashion. The staff at the hotel were friendly and more than willing to help. The indoor pool is smallish but serves it purpose. All in all another great stay at a Marriott.
