Travelled to Buffalo for a Dead and Co. concert in Darien Lake. Unfortunately, the only hotel close to the Darien Centre was the Darien Lake Lodge; for a young couple with no children, it wasn't really ideal for us, so we decided to stay in Buffalo as it was only about 30 minutes from the venue. When booking, we didn't want a hotel right downtown as we were worried about traffic, and found this hotel to be in a good location to suit our needs. It was easy to find, and as we were coming from Canada, it wasn't too far from the border crossing (about 30 minutes at lunch-hour with the route we took). We had the courtyard rooms overlooking the pool, which was really nice. We didn't end up using the pool as we ran out of time, but really enjoyed the room location. Very similar to a hotel we stayed at in Niagara Falls Ontario, but much quieter as there weren't loud games on the pool deck, or children running around. We saw there was a shopping centre nearby when looking online, and when we arrived, were pleased to find that it's located right behind the hotel. Also approx. a 5-minute drive to stores such as Target, Pet Smart, CVS, etc. which was great. Also close to various restaurants, sit-down and take-out, which was great. Overall a great hotel! Would definitely come back.
