Not if you book a park n fly package. You can book direct on the Staybridge site, but it's much cheaper to book through trinity reservations or through www.buyreservations.com. I'd double check the number of people the reservation covers, because we were given a small room (1 Q bed and a pullout) the last time we booked the package. It was suitable for the four of us, but likely would not be for a family of five. I'm pretty sure both sites list the number of people covered clearly.

We've had great experiences booking through both sites. I think we've used trinity for four stays and buyreservations for one. We often use them even when we're not flying out, because the rates ( which include parking) are cheaper than the regular rate on the Staybridge site.

Our $126 included parking for up to 14 nights and the airport shuttle. As another poster mentioned, we ended up in the smallish 1 Qn + sofabed room. When I booked through Trinity Reservations, I requested a room with 2 beds. I got a reply that the hotel only had the 1 Qn + sofabed option available and was given the option to cancel our reservation (without penalty) if that wouldn't meet our needs. The rates are definitely much better through Trinity than through the hotel directly.

Max occupancy via Trinity says 5 people for the Staybridge vs 6 people if you go through buy reservations..........we booked through buy reservations just because of that for Christmas time this year and I did put that we have 6 people so a one queen bed and sofa bed room will not work for us! I will have to call them and confirm that they can fit all 6 of us!

Thank you for the replies. How far from the airport is this? It says 10 mins. We have stayed at the Marriott in Amhearst that everyone uses here through priceline. We have also done the Days Inn right accross from the airport! But our flight isn't until 5:30 at night, so we have a whole day to kill first!

I'd say that the Staybridge is at most 10 minutes from the airport. They've got us there in less than that for a flight first thing in the morning. I think it's a little closer than Amherst. I like the location. It's just down the street from the Boulevard Mall. There's an Olive Garden right across the street, and lots of shopping (Kohls, Target, Walmart, Marshalls, Dick's ...) down Transit Road.

ETA The Staybridge also has a Movie Room, where you can bring or borrow DVDs and watch it in comfy chairs etc. Our kids enjoy doing that. If you bring some disney movies, it might be a fun way to kill some time while waiting for your flight.

Trinity reservations is no longer offering Staybridges on my travel date in October. When it was still available, it stated only for 4.
Buyreservations still has it available. It says occupancy is 6, but further down, the type of room available says queen plus pull out. So I emailed them about this, as there are 2 adults and 4 kids in my family, and the reply was the offer is only for the queen plus pull out but they do offer rollaway beds if needed. I am not too happy. If I want the actual suite, I have to go through the hotel itself, the room currently costing in the $300's.

It would be a tight squeeze with one rollaway (nevermind 2) in the qn + sofabed rooms. Is 2 rooms an option - maybe splitting 1 adult and 2 kids in each? I would thnk that would still be cheaper than a suite. I don't know if you could get a regular hotel room in Buffalo that sleeps 6 ...

The website we recently used was buyreservations.com. Their packages offer a night stay, transportation to and from the airport and parking. Their rates are reasonable too.

This is our 5th year staying at the Millennium.

We prefer our hotel to be away from the airport (noise). Plus you're right next door to the Walden Galleria. Great restaurants nearby too!

Like a previous poster mentioned, we always book a courtyard room which opens up to the pool. The kids have a blast and it keeps them busy the night before a flight.

We stayed at the Days Inn both times for around $80.00 per night in Feb. Our kids enjoyed the pool, free breakfast was decent and the biggest perk of all was the Tim Hortons right in the parking lot

That's the property we have booked for our park and fly for our Christmas trip. It was the Timmies that sold us......yes, we are that lame . Hey, people have booked on less, right?

Glad to hear a favourable review. We generally aren't huge fans of the Days Inn chain but figured its only for one night so we would survive.

So anyone who has used Trinity to book...a quick question and/or opinion...I booked Staybridge and our plans may change if DH comes over for the night prior to our flight (it will depend on the shift he gets assigned to that week). Do you think there be a problem with the hotel if DH drops us at the airport in the morning if he does end up coming? We may or may not have to use the parking that's included...it will depend on the shift that DH ends up on for the week that we return as well. I'd hate to lose the rate, however I don't want a hassle...now considering just letting it go and driving from home on the morning of the flight. When I booked it, we thought there was no way DH could either swing dropping us off or coming over with us the night prior.

You won't have a problem. I actually stayed at the hotel with a Trinity reservation on a shopping trip with my mom and sister last year. It was by far the cheapest rate even without considering the parking. I emailed Trinity to ask whether proof of flight would be required. They said no such proof needed. I also stayed with my family on a buy reservations booked reservation, and again, had no need for the parking and there was no problem.
