Hotel is very clean staff is very friendly. Pool is somewhat small but overall I would recommend. We have not tried the food but other guest has said it was wonderful. Also there is a lot of shopping in the area so it is very convenient.

We had a nice stay at the Courtyard Buffalo/Amherst. The room was clean, tidy and quiet even though it was close to the highway. Solid WiFi - strong enough even for some gaming. Comfortable beds/pillows. We had a room with 2 queens - plenty of room to get some work done/relax. The staff was pleasant and quickly attended to any...

Had a most wonderful stay at this exceptional focused service property from 1/18/17-1/20/17. Was upgraded to two different suites during this stay; both of which were of exceptional quality. The service levels throughout the property are exceptional, from the wonderful cuisine in The Bistro to the spotless and immaculate Housekeeping in both the suites, corridors, and the public areas.

I stayed at this Courtyard twice in the past two weeks due to extended business in Buffalo. The hotel is very conveniently located to the Thruway, UB, and a large office park in Williamsville. I am very fussy about hotel cleanliness and on both of my stays my room was immaculate. Not a speck of dust or stray hair anywhere....

Room was as expected typical Courtyard.. but Not close to anything. Clean, friendly staff but it's not located close to anything really. Property is behind a car dealership with that as a view. It was just Ok. I wouldn't go back.
