Best Option in Downtown Buffalo
If you are staying in Downtown Buffalo for business the Hampton Inn and Suites on Delaware and Chipewa is the best option. The hotel is new and well cared for. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff in the lobby are friendly and helpful. They offer a free buffet breakfast which is decent. The Hampton Inn is located in a small area of cafes, restaurants and bars which makes it about the only place in downtown Buffalo where you can go out after 5:30pm and not be the only person on the street. The hotel is about 4 blocks from the train that goes up and down Main Street.
Stayed here on business for one night and was favorably impressed. Staff was friendly and helpful, parking is free and so was internet access. Clean room and spacious as well. In a less than spectacular area of downtown but I don't think downtown Buffalo is impressive overall. Security seems tight and the place really was convenient for business downtown.
Wow! A surprisingly upscale, downtown look for a Hampton Inn! Rooms were spacious, high-ceilinged, and ours had a gas fireplace! Walking distance to bars, coffeehouses, restaurants, theater. Staff was friendly and accomodating (we asked to switch from 2 doubles to a king and they did so immediately and then called a little while later to see if we liked our room). Breakfast was so-so. Only downside was that there were noisy guests coming in during the wee hours after drinking on Chippewa St. Don't know if this is a frequent or unusual occurrence at this hotel. At any rate, I would recommend this hotel - good bargain and gives a nice impression of Buffalo.
Hampton Inn & Suites is a very Beautifull Place
I recently stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Downtown Buffalo located right in the Entertainment District. The hotel was great, furnished very stylish, friendly staff, and our room had it's own patio, kitchen area, hot tub and a view of Lake Erie. At night time (Friday Night) my wife and I walked around the area checking out some of the dance clubs and restaurants. The next morning after a hang over we had helped ourselfs to the Complimentary Breakfast buffet and coffee. Warm eggs and bagels..yumm.
I would definitely book another room at this hotel on my next visit to Buffalo.
We stayed here on our honeymoon night. My fiance stayed there the night before in a different room, and you'd think with it being his wedding day, they could have been more accommodating. NO! He asked for either a late check out or early check in but they was told "we don't do that". When he said we would both be staying there that night and asked for room service to leave some champagne for our first night together they "didn't do that either" and NO ROOM SERVICE??? NO Restaurant?? For a downtown hotel? You would have thought the "City of Good Neighbors" would have given the poor guy a break on his wedding day, but they made him have to go to management to finally get a late check out. We should have stayed at Salvatores Italian Gardens in the Honeymoon suite with free breakfast!
An up to date renovation that's a great deal
A coworker and I coincidentally visited Buffalo within a month of each other and couldn't have had two hotel experiences more different. C. stayed at the Hyatt, a luxury brand. She found the hotel quite disappointing. The Hampton Inn, however, provides an experience worth far more than the $110 corporate rate. Nicely appointed rooms, a great location downtown that's also a block from the beginning of the Elmwood corridor, a coin laundry, computer lounge, and across the street from a fine indie coffee shop, The Spot, as well as a Starbucks. It may be more expensive than a typical Hampton, but it's worth it.
Best Location for Fun
Just steps away from the "entertainment" street. If you're out to have some fun, you can't beat the location. The rooms were above average and the free breakfast more than acceptable.
One thing after another....
The desk clerk who processed our reservation was surly and offensive.
The fire alarm went off at 3:00 a.m. for no valid reason. While we were out of our room the next day, a bag of possessions went missing. It turned out to have been taken by a housekeeper. One item was recovered and I was reimbursed for the rest, but only after my persistent phone calls in the next few days while they slowly unravelled the matter.
When I arrived at the front desk to collect the money, one of the staff in attendance had his mouth full of food. Please come back, he said, as I left. Right!
Tough to beat for the price !!
With a student at Canisius college we've made many trips to Buffalo and have tried several places for overnight accomodations. This Hampton has become our #1 place to stay in Buffalo. It is in immaculate condition with friendly staff and excellent customer facilities including indoor pool and business center. We particularly enjoy it's central location making for easy access to a full range of dining and entertainment locations. We like the security of this Hampton which requires your room key for everything from parking to elevator use. Highly Recommended.
Compared to the generally pathetic state of most Buffalo hotels (and just about every building downtown for that matter), the downtown Hampton Inn and Suites is off the charts. Brand new, large rooms, FREE on-site parking, large in-door swimming pool and sauna, free continental breakfast, secure facility (you can't anywhere without a key card, including the parking lot), beautiful lobby, halls and rooms. I can't believe I'm saying this about a Hampton Inn. Stayed at the Hyatt Regency downtown Buffalo the first night and it was one of the worst hotels I've EVER stayed at. Absolutely horrible. If you have the misfortune of being stuck in miserable, depressed, bankrupt downtown Buffalo, try the Hampton and you won't be disappointed. It's an oasis.

We were expecting HUGE windows to see the whole descent of the Falls, but instead, it was just a drafty walk with the occassional average living room sized window. It was full of stories on the wall though, like how one seven ...

We spent a few hours at Niagara then headed back to the border to collect my property. This was an annoyance and took over an hour. Vonnie snapped a picture of me being escorted out of customs. 2 ...
