Super Grands
World Games XXIX
December 26-31, 2018


Buffalo Advantages
2. Least expensive SG hotel rooms with indoor heated pool
3. Most function space
4. Free airport shuffle
5. Niagara Falls only 1/2 hour away


The up-scale Buffalo Grand Hotel features one of the nicest competition arenas that the Super Grands has ever secured, yet we’ve managed to retain a reasonable guest room rate ($139). Located on the Lake Erie Waterfront at the mouth of the Niagara River in the heart of downtown Buffalo, the hotel is a short 20 minute drive from Niagara Falls and Canada. Niagara Falls highlights include special holiday “Festival of Lights” at the falls with colorful illumination, the gaming casinos and attractions on Clifton Hill with Planet Hollywood, Ripley’s Believe it or Not, the Hershey Store, etc. Don’t forget your passport if you want to enter into Canada for all Niagara Falls attractions.
