Clean, comfortable and close to downtown

Stayed there for a weekend for a sporting event downtown at the First Niagara Center. Location was convenient to downtown and wasn't very far away from a Metro station stop to get downtown. Room was clean -- no real view, but didn't really expect one and didn't care. Staff was courteous and helpful when I asked questions. Would stay there again -- reasonable price (was a bit higher than normal because of the sporting event taking place).

Not Downtown

Transportation: Free Shuttle b/w the hotel and the airport. Location: 20-25 min walking to downtown. About 20% of the properties on the Delaware Ave are abandoned. Horrible. Wi-Fi: Constantly dropped off the internet.Really Bad, but free Not Recommended

Location was convenient

Convenient- cause next to supermarket, which is right across from the hotel. Staff were friendly, but would have been better if it included breakfast.

Holiday Inn Buffalo Downtown

There were ants in my room and after informing the front desk about the ants, I was offered a dinner or free drink. I had already eaten dinner! They offered to move me to another room and I said I was fine as long as the ants weren't in my bed and that the room should be sprayed after I checked out the next day. There was a definite need for a more thorough cleaning, especially vacuming along the edges of the room; very dirty and dusty. The location was great and the dining room was pleasant and had good food at reasonable prices.

Good Location

This Holiday Inn was nice to stay in. I really appreciated the friendliness and how accomodating the staff was. I did not have any transportation but there was a bus stop right by the hotel and the staff was helpful in getting the schedule. I came for the Buffalo Bills football game & they took me to the bus station so I could catch a bus from there to the game. Also appreciated the airport shuttle service.

There was a Walgreen's just next door to the hotel to get anything you may have forgotten or needed for your trip.
