    BUF or ROC airports for domestic flight

    I could use some insight. I have to do a quick in and out weekend trip to Western NY. My location is a little closer to Buffalo but not significantly longer to Rochester. Does anyone have a recommendation of which airport is easier/better to go in and out of? I will need a rental car and a hotel in a safe area not far from the airport. Any things I should consider? Which airport do you prefer?

    We fly out of ROC frequently. It is small and very efficient in and out. Whenever we fly from there we stay at the Fairfield that is onsite. Not sure if that is convenient to where you need to be, but it’s clean and convenient to the airport.

    My family is in Olean. Buffalo looks closer but DCA to ROC times.might meet my needs a little better. I feel like ROC would be easier even though it is about 3p minutes longer of a drive.

    I flew in and out of Rochester once and it was a breeze. Very small airport with almost no traffic nearby.

    I live in a suburb outside of Buffalo. The Buffalo airport is easy in and out with several hotels within a few miles of the airport. My wife and I stay across from the airport (Days Hotel) when we travel to Aruba because of an early departure. Car rentals are onsite at the airport

    Where are you going while you are in the area and I can give additional info regarding Buffalo vs Rochester.

    I will be going to Olean, NY, flying in on a Friday and back out Saturday evening in a few weeks. We usually drive, its 6-7 hours. I have been many times, but this is a very fast trip for a memorial service and I may be going alone so flying seems like a better idea.

    Thank you for your advice!
