“Old historic hotel is a hidden gem”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We happened on to the Occidental Hotel museum on an overnight stay in Buffalo. This old hotel is the genuine thing with lots of historic pictures of famous guests, old barber chairs, and plenty of history. It is free and well worth a 30 minute detour.

“Old fashioned saloon”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Quaint bar. Good food and drinks. Reasonable. Clientele is a mixture of locals, tourists and at times, bikers.

“An Experience in Time Travel”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Authentic historic hotel with numerous artifacts. A placemark in history that has been preserved for the enjoyment of future generations. Friendly staff allowed us to leisurely walk through the entrance and bar areas. Unfortunately, we were unable to look into the hotel rooms because they were occupied during our visit.

“Interesting history”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The hotel has a very interesting history and David and his crew make you feel right at home. We rearranged our schedule for a tour that (we thought) included seeing the suites. We were disappointed that we could not see them after changing our schedule. Our meal was good and we enjoyed David singing us a song. The hotel asks for a donation per person for the tour and the price of lunch is reasonable.

“Honeymoon!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Loved the large suite! The time period decorations were great, the bed was incredibly comfortable, large bathroom was perfect, and the old time radio a sweet touch!
