Stayed here in June with my husband - usually stay at the Hyatt but heard good things about this hotel. The hotel is excellent - upon arrival it is clear to see that the hotel is very well maintained, clean and spacious with the added bonus of very freindly and accomodating staff. Our room was a double - very big and spacious, with clean bedding and ahuge bed with a nice comfy matress. The decor was tidy and fresh with a contemporary feel and the bathroom was a great size with toilletries available. My husband was amazed with how big the TV was - with lots of cable channels to choose from - and excellent TV picture/reception! The hotel location is central to the downtown district - a few blocks from the tram system / theatre district / city hall and Niagara Square with easy walking routes to Main Street and the Buffalo bus depot on Ellicott. The hotel is also within easy walking distance to the harbour and canalside - which is a must on nice days (they serve Perrys ice cream down there! and the spirit of Buffalo sails from canalside). The hotel satff are excellent with Conrad (duty manager?) on the front desk being very helpful and friendly - making the whole experience more personal. The hotel has a smallish indoor pool and whirlpool spa which are open 6am-10pm - we made use of these facilities every day and they were never busy or overcrowded and were always clean with plenty of fluffy dry towles to use - instead of taking towels from the hotel room! The hotel is linked to three bars / restaurants - Salsaristas ( an inexpensive Mexican style cantina), Papaya (Asian fusion and a bit more up market) and The Chocolate Bar (Funky bar / restaurant open until late). The hotel also has a small library with a small stock of a variety of books - this is excellent as it helps stop you feeling trapped in your room and gives you a variety of comfy seating options and there is a tv available in the library. The free hot breakfast is amazing - i thought it would be standard fare but the hot choices are changed daily with a hot waffle maker (you make them yourself), cereals,fresh fruits and fruit juices (these may be from concentrate as this is popular in the USA) and various pastries on offer along with very good coffee - in regular, robust and decaff. On a note regarding the coffee - it is available all day and in the afternoons fresh cookies are available at the front desk. All of the cutlery and plates are disposable but Conrad assured us that they are all biodegradable and are sourced from potato starch - still this seems quite a shock if you are not used to it and prefer eating from regular plates with regular cutlery. The hotel has a fitness suite and business centre with free internet/printer access and use 24 hours a day. The hotel also has a small laundry that we used frequently as it is cheaper than the hotel room laundry service ($1 FOR WASHING AND $1 FOR DRYING) - detergents are available at the small hotel shop at reception (cheaper items can be located across the road at the gas station but the hotel store is great for last minute things - including some basic medications and some foods). Overall this hotel is amazing and excellent value for money- in my opinion far better than the Hyatt with friendlier staff and great accomodation options - a massive thank you to Conrad for getting us to the airport on our way home (they have a shuttle service) and a huge thankyou to the rest of the staff for making our holiday experience so good - WE WILL DEFINATELY GO BACK TO THIS HOTEL 10/10 - thanks!!
