Aloft - Expectations Exceeded
My stay at Aloft was great. The hotel staff was very nice and attentive. The room was clean and comfortable. The entire hotel was quiet, although clearly busy. There are plenty of great restaurants and bars to choose from that are connected to the lobby and also within 5 min walking distance. V ICE is right off the lobby and the food is fantastic - definitely recommend. Aloft is now one of my go to hotels when I visit Buffalo.
