Niagara Falls - it's made up of two sets of waterfalls: The smaller American Falls and the huge Horseshoe Falls which are probably the ones you are picturing in your mind right now!
On our visit we walked along the rapids that fed the American falls, and then saw the falls themselves, in some of the pics you can see the horseshoe falls & …
Bit of a drive today - 6 hours. Planned to head straight to Buffalo, NY but we started to see winery signs in Pennsylvania outside of Erie, so we made a short detour. There were probably 10-12 wineries in this one town called North East, PA. We stopped at a few of them and had some tastings. (WE didn't do the tasting, only I) :) Pretty good wine in …
Well we are in our final week of traveling across the USA. Almost at the end of 39 days, numerous plane rides, countless miles in a van and endless burgers and fries. We leave Ohio and the delights of theme parks to head up to New York State and the city of Buffalo. This is to be home base for the next three days while we rest for a day and then visit Niagara Falls. Our accommodation here is my most favorite up to now. The Pear Street Hotel originally were ...
... us a brief history of how
Buffalo got its name. When the Indians were forced to the west of the
Mississippi , because the Americans settled and wanted the land, one
Indian, called Buffalo, found uninhabited land, and settled there on
his tod. This area from then on was known as Buffalos creek, over the
years the name has just been shortened to Buffalo. So there you have
it, I wont charge you for that little nugget of american history
... border into Canada to get to the Canadian side of the falls, which apparently has the better general view. Got to the gate and handed over the passports, and got a short quiz from the guy in the booth. He asked me if I'd been to Canada recently, and when I said I'd never been, he replied, "It's not looking good for you today, either."
My jaw dropped.
He then asked me if I had a visa, and when I said I didn't think I needed one, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Suites Downtown Buffalo
After reading some of the previous reviews, I was worried I would walk into a dingy run down motel. But once I arrived, I was quite surprised and very pleased with what I saw. Appearance wise the place was well kept, front desk service was quick and friendly. Room was very cozy and comfortable. The sink in the washroom was a bit cracked, but it worked just fine, and they could replace the couches since they seem a little old and overused. The location is very good, it was minutes away from the Bus Depot, since I had arrived through Greyhound, this was very convenient. I wouldn't mind staying here again if I visit Buffalo another time. For the price I paid, this was a good deal.
Awful, awful, awful
Talk about a filthy hotel in a filthy city. When you walk in you feel like you just walked into the 70's. Old, dirty an dated. The rooms are the same. You feel like you are in a road side motel. I would never stay here or tell anybody else to either.
This hotel is a excellent location for going to the HSBC Arena. We spent the night there, after driving down to Buffalo to see the Neil Diamond concert. There is a trolly just out the back door to catch your free ride to the arena, or it's just a pleasant walk there or back. They also have TGIF resturant right in the hotel so you don't have to go far to have something to eat. The hotel has a nice breakfast in the morning also.
This hotel gets a bad rap. Sure it is not the Hyatt however you are not paying Hyatt rates. Stayed there with my family when we went to see a free concert in the square. The hotel is well situated for restaurants and night life. The hotel was clean and the staff exceptional. Very frendly and extreamly helpful. Sure the offsite parking is a pain however the location is such that you don't need your car. Just park and walk to everything. One note, take a raincoat. I didn't and the day I had to leave it was pouring. Could have gotten pretty wet even with the 5 minute walk. However the maids gave me a large garbage bag and with a few slits I had a great ponco to keep me dry. I went out for a walk at night and the are was so busy I never felt threatened at all.
I have stayed here before when it was a Radisson and it has gone straight to ---.
We have arranged to stay the new Comfort Suites Hotel (previously Radissons Suites) for 2 days after visiting the Niagara Falls. Upon check-in, the first impression is a really worn grayish room with an old stained sofa set. The kitchenette is no more than a microwave oven, a fridge and a sink, which doesn't allow much cooking. The rooms also isn't clean, with bits of dirt lying about the carpeted floor. When a light didn't come on we checked the power point behind the sofa, instead finding pieces of used tissues, hair strands and other wastes. It is evident that the room hasn't been cleaned thoroughly for a while, nor did the servicing staff check if the lights were working.
I recently stayed at the Radisson Suite in Buffalo. The hotel room is roomy, with a large living room, a bedroom, a kitchenette, a large bathroom, and a powder area. The hotel however, needs a major facelift. The décor in the rooms is dated by 15-20 years. The light colors on the couch and chairs show off the wear, and even if they are clean, they look dirty. I did not sit on them. The shower did not have any water pressure and when I tried to adjust the shower nozzle the shower head fell apart. The "fitness center" in the basement is very small, and very hot. The hotels location is a major plus. It is very close (3 minute walk) to the bars and restaurants on "Chippewa Street". The nightlife was nice, it made the stay pleasant. The breakfast buffet is included with the room and it is very good.
Great stay in the center of the city
The only problem we had was room service was closed Thanksgiving Day.
We were in town for a concert at the Tralf and the hotel is less than a block away. Great location if entertainment is your reason to visit Buffalo.
