“Best place to stay in downtown Buffalo”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

I travel to Buffalo a lot since I work for a Buffalo-based company but live in Boston. Over the last year I have stayed at several hotels in the Buffalo area but I love the Hampton Inn the best; I am disappointed if I cannot get a room there during a trip to Buffalo. The staff is always genuinely friendly and always working hard to make your stay wonderful. I love the parking; it is right next to the hotel with no valet (with other hotels in the area you either have to wait for the valet or walk blocks to get your car out of a parking garage). Their rooms are quiet (they block out street noise as well as hallway noise) and they are a nice size (not too big that you feel lost in the room, but not too small that you feel cramped). The rooms are always clean and everything always works. I love their location to restaurants in the area that you can walk to during the summer but the fact that they provide access to four food options without going outside during the winter. Their exercise room equipment is always in working condition. Throw in free wifi and a great, free breakfast included and you can understand why I always try to stay here.

Good afternoon, sdavi, and thank you so much for your response. We understand that for people who spend a lot of time in hotels due to their work schedule, hotel stays are not always met with the same excitement as leisure travelers. We are so glad that we are able to meet your needs and give access to great amenities. There are some wonderful hotels in Buffalo, and we are proud that you rank us as your favorite. We look forward to the next time we welcome you “home.” Thank you for your patronage.

We were in town for a Saturday night for a family gathering. We had never stayed at the Hampton Suites before (usually we stay at the Embassy Suites but decided to try something new). First off, our room was tiny! For the amount I paid for the night, I was expecting something a little bigger than a postage stamp sized room. I can get a whole suite next door at the Embassy for the same price. Upon arrival our bed looked very lumpy. At first I thought they had checked us into an already occupied room. Turned out it was just the comforter. The comforter is all sewn squares so when they wash it, all the filling in each square balls up giving the lumpy look. This also means that the warmth quality of the bedspread is lost. I asked for them to change it which they happily did. The second comforter was better but was on it's way to being a lumpy mess. Other than the comforter, the room was clean as was the bathroom.

Our night of sleep was horrible. There must have been some kind of bachelorette party or girls gathering of some sort as they were partying and screaming in the halls from about 2-4 AM. And by screaming I mean SCREAMING (most of which was profanity).

Breakfast the next morning was pretty good. The food was fresh and plentiful and there were places to sit.

The staff were very nice, I have nothing but good things to say about them, I did not encounter one staff member who was anything but pleasant.

Overall, it is a nice hotel in a good location. However, the value for the room is not that great and the bedding is unfortunately showing it's age.

Good afternoon, michisholm, and thank you for taking the time to review our hotel on TripAdvisor. As a historical building, we take advantage of the already existing structure of the building so that most rooms are not alike. Some rooms are larger, while others are smaller. Our suites differ in their amenities, as well as size. Many of our guests enjoy certain aspects of different rooms, and room types. It looks like you were in one of the smaller standard rooms of the hotel. Though some people enjoy a cozy feel (our bar exam test takers love them), we understand that other guests enjoy spreading out. We hope that you will choose to stay with us again so that you experience the different rooms we have available. Thank you for your business.

Me and my parents stayed here for two nights while visiting my brother and we were all really happy with everything. Light, clean, airy rooms (with a jacuzzi!) and the beds were comfortable. Good breakfast, friendly staff and shuttle to/from the airport. Free, reliable wifi as well.

Definitely recommend!

Booked my in-laws using points as part of a Christmas gift to see a hockey game. Phoned in to add their names to my reservations with no issues. My in-laws were delighted with their stay. Staff had marked that this was a Christmas gift and upgraded them to a very nice room and were helpful in arranging for a taxi to the game.

Nice to see that this hotel management understands that people staying on points represent the chain's best customers, unlike competing brands (Ahem, Holiday Inn, ahem).

Very clean and comfortable rooms with a nice lobby with a lovely stone fireplace and a free coffee bar. Secured, free parking in front of the building. Nice amenities pool and fitness center available. Also there are three restaurants accessible in the same building. I was there in snow and cold and it was nice to access dinner withour having to go outside.

We attended a concert at the Events Center Downtown and stayed overnight during the week. For the cost, the room was comfy and staff were great. Breakfast was good as you would expect. When we inquired about the best way to drive and park at the Events Center we were directed to take the free trolley a three block walk away which made the concert a breeze. I would definitely stay at this hotel again when visiting downtown Buffalo, especially for a concert. It was my first concert in Buffalo and I would definitely return for another because of this experience.

Excellent! Thank you for your review. We are fortunate to be close proximity to the First Niagara Center, and the free trolley that runs downtown is a great offering by the City of Buffalo. We always try to give our guests as many options as possible, and when visiting the arena, the trolley often makes the most sense. We look forward to seeing you again, the next time a concert or event brings you to Buffalo. Thank you for your business.

We've stayed at this hotel many times but this one was the best.
The hotel was full because of a wedding on the weekend of January 11th, 2014. Bride and groom and wedding party were all staying there but the staff made us feel like it was only the two of us.
They gave us a super special room with kitchenette, which was also very quiet.
The place is clean, comfortable, friendly, but the staff deserves all the praise.
Thank you!!
