Buffalo in October

Hotel is nice with new drapes, linens etc. Hotel rooms themselves need new heating and AC badly and some work in the bathrooms as well. The restaruant was fabulous and friendly as was all of the staff at the hotel itself.

Did us well - would come back

The hotel and staff provided excellent service. The staff was courteous, welcoming, and responsive right from the start. The rooms were clean and kept clean, and beds and bathroom in excellent condition. Wireless internet worked right away and efficiently, definitely a big help. Has free airport shuttle - big help. Thank you Holiday Inn-Downtown - we hope to come again.

If you need anything, there is a 24 hour Walgreens next door that has most everything you might need, and is nice and clean.

Not really worth it

We were there for an interview for a job. The interview was held at the Holiday Inn so that is why we chose to stay there. In our oppion the rooms were very very small for the price you paid.

Convenient Location

The downtown location of the hotel was convenient, but there was nothing special about our stay at this Holiday Inn. The staff was efficient but not what I would call friendly. The room was moderately clean (dusty vents, hard water stains in bathroom) but the halls smelled of cigarette smoke. We were booked on a floor whose remaining rooms were taken by family reunion members so it was quite noisy the entire weekend with people greeting each other in hall and running from room to room. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was pricey and skimpy. C'mon HI, get with the program and offer complementary breakfast like every other hotel we have stayed in over the past several years!

Great Staff

The staff was great! Our luggage was delayed, so staff made sure to help us out, with the basics. They also called at 2am when our luggage arrived, as requested.

A comfy stay

We were in Buffalo from the NYC area to visit our oldest daughter. The staff was very helpful with suggesting a scenic running route and allowing us to keep our car in the parking lot after we checked out. We unexpectedly stayed an extra night after already checking out and the staff provided another nice room with a different view!Beds were comfy, water pressure in the shower was good, and the room was clean. Would stay there again.

Good location!!

All in all it is a nice hotel. It is an older Holiday Inn but it is coventatly located downtown. It is just a 20 minute drive to Niagra Falls and you save a done of money. The Anchor Bar (famous for inventing the buffalo wings, and host to a Bobbie Flay showdown), is just two blocks away. Excellent place to eat.
