Super service and nice rooms. I am a bed snob - like them supportive but not rock hard. The mattress in this hotel was absolutely amazing. Beauty Rest will get my business next time. I normally stay at Marriott's, but will definitely revisit this hotel. The parking lot had been plowed but still has snow, but then again, in Buffalo,...

We have stayed here several times and keep coming back. It is far enough away from the busy touristy areas but close enough to shopping and restaurants. It is right across the street from the Buffalo Airport. They also provide shuttle and will keep your vehicle for the duration of your trip. The hotel is clean, staff are very friendly,...

Returning from Canada to Buffalo we decided we wanted to be near Duffs for the wings. Being a Marriott guy this was the best choice for us. It had the same amenities and setup as other Courtyards, however I have to say that their bed was one of the most comfortable of any courtyard and ranked up their with many...

The service of this hotel was completely unprofessional and unacceptable. Front desk lady was the only nice person I talked to. At breakfast I overheard the blonde jennifer or jessca was her name, swearing and complaining about something, she was snotty and rude to me like she had an attitude. The cook was a young guy he served me uncooked...

I have been trying to research your comments regarding your stay. I believe you may have the wrong hotel as I do not have any associates that fit the description or name you provided. If you would like to contact me at the hotel I would be happy to discuss this with you.

The lobby and staff are very nice. The room was comfortable and updated and clean. I was there with my husband and toddler daughter - only issue was the small bathroom. The door swings open to practically touch the toilet so it's very difficult to share with anyone. There was a minifridge which was a nice convenience and the breakfast...

The room was nice but the heat in the room would not turn up. The toilet kept clogging up it wasn't my usual Marriott stay. The lobby was beautiful, the cafe really nice. Front desk staff was amazing especially the young lady at the front desk on December 11,2014 she was amazingly helpful. The best Mariott staff to date.

I will have to say that this hotel was fairly nice and my room was clean. I can't rate this hotel excellent because it lacked two things. The first thing it lacked was a complementary breakfast. If I'm going to pay $125 a night including taxes then I believe a hotel should offer a complementary breakfast. My other complaint was...

Throughout the course of our various road trips throughout this country, my husband and I have determined what brand hotels usually work best for us. Unless we find an incredible rate elsewhere online, we stick to these hotel brands. One of these is Courtyard as we find them clean, modern and well staffed. This Courtyard is no exception.

I would rate the hotel higher but the TV didn't work for 3 days while I was there. The front desk repeatedly claimed someone was working on it but no change. The room was nice and spacious and staff was friendly.

This was a standard Courtyard but we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly and whenever we had a question or needed something they quickly assisted us. The hotel was quiet throughout the weekend and we only ever saw the cleaning staff on our floor. There is a tiny pool and a jacuzzi as well as a cute courtyard...
