“"What a warm homey feeling"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

My husband and I are from Flint, MI and we stayed at "THE MANSION" . It was suggested to us by our daughter-in-law who always drove by it on the way to the hospital. She graduated from UB Medical School on April 27, 2012, and she thought that if we stayed there--she could finally see what this beautiful mansion looked like inside. WE WERE ALL VERY IMPRESSED!!!

The staff is very friendly and attentive, also they are knowledgeable about the surrounding attractions, and venues. Our stay was warm and welcoming the beautiful fireplaces were always lit as it was a little chilly when we were there,. We would recommend "THE MANSION ON DELAWARE" -- TRICIA & KEITH McCORMICK

Thank you for your review - and congratulations to your family on the UB Med School graduation of your daughter-in-law! We're so glad you enjoyed the assistance of The Butler Team during your stay - there truly is no better way to take in all the attractions of the city than with knowledgeable Butler assistance and complimentary Range Rover transportation! We hope to welcome you back to The Mansion on your next visit to Buffalo.

I stayed at the Mansion when I was in Buffalo for business, and from the moment I arrived I felt not like a customer but truly a guest. The staff arranged for my colleagues and me to have dinner delivered from a local restaurant, which we ate in the lounge while sipping on some lovely wines provided by the hotel. The room was spacious and immaculate, and even had a jacuzzi tub! I'm looking forward to staying there again.

Thank you for your review and for choosing The Mansion as your business hotel. MoDA provides services and amenities of particular importance and value to business travelers, but it is the luxurious surroundings and Butler Service that we feel makes guests remark, "I felt not like a customer but truly a guest". So glad we could accommodate a private dinner setting for you and your colleagues, complimented by MoDA's curated wine selections. The Mansion's wine choices are rotated based on the season and current wine trends, resulting in a mix of Old and New World styles, some very recognizable and some more obscure. We look forward to welcoming you back!

The hotel itself is lovely, and the staff is very helpful and friendly. I had perhaps the hotel's smallest room, but it was immaculate--and I had a view of St. Louis' gothic steeple. It is in a walkable area of town, though your "personal butler" will drive you wherever you wish to go within certain limits. There are complementary drinks in the late afternoon (the red wine was a very good choice) and a varied breakfast offered each morning. For dinner I had the pizza from the kitchen, and it was delicious. If I return to Buffalo, I will definitely be staying at this hotel!
One more thing--go see the Frank Lloyd Wright Prairie House near the zoo, and plan to take the 2 hour tour.

Thank you for your review...and for the kind words about the hotel and it's staff. The Mansion does offer a variety of different room types, but all rooms provide the same services, amenities, decor...and great views of Downtown Buffalo! There are many historic cathedrals within walking distance of MoDA and the views are beautiful - St. Louis Cathedral, Trinity Church and a 19th C house of worship that has been transformed into the headquarters for singer Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe Records, to name a few. We believe our city is highly 'walkable' and we're glad to hear you feel the same...although the Butler driven Land Rover is perfect for those destinations a bit further out! We have shared your comments regarding menus at MoDA with Chef, thank you - the next time you visit be sure to order the Cheese and Fruit Plate, which Chef has just updated with selections of artisanal, hand crafted cheeses from a local Buffalo cheese maker - outstanding quality! So glad to hear you enjoyed the Frank Llloyd Wright tour - the Darwin Martin House has just announced a new tour called "All Wright All Day" which is a day long tour of the Frank Lloyd Wright Martin House Complex, Graycliff Estate, historic Forest Lawn Cemetery, lunch at Buffalo Yacht Club and other historic/architectural destinations. We look forward to welcoming you back to Buffalo and The Mansion on Delaware Avenue on your next visit to the East Coast!

My friend and I went to Buffalo for the Bruce Springsteen concert, stayed at the Mansion for one night. What a pleasant surprise to find that the Butlers would change a dinner reservation for us, drive us to the restaurant and pick us up again to take us to the train that would get us to the concert. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere of the hotel is warm and charming, beautifully decorated. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

The Mansio has the best staff and friendliest atmosphere of any place I have stayed. From the greeting of Rachel, to the checkin process with Stacey, to the assistance with anything by Kent, James and Lauren, I highly recommend the Mansion on Delaware.

My husband, daughter (8) and I stayed at The Mansion on Delaware for a night. The visit was perfect. This hotel could not be any more family friendly. The Butlers made each member of our family feel welcome and met every possible need. It was a very warm and welcome atmosphere.
When inquiring about restaurants they made sure they suggested family friendly establishments.
We were very impressed with the home’s interior, very well restored and beautiful. The hotel offers a the free cocktail hour with a great selection of wines and a breakfast with very healthy options.
We will be back!

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the tripadvisor community. The comprehensive knowledge the Butler Team has of the Buffalo/Niagara region helps families, leisure and business travelers make the most of their Buffalo experience - we're glad they could assist with family-friendly suggestions. I'm glad you appreciated the wine selection on the fully stocked honor bar - the hotel's Special Events Manager, Lisa, creates our wine selection of 8-9 offerings daily and chooses wines that are either produced in small quantities, sustainably farmed or biodynamic. These vineyards usually turn out a great product due to an extreme attention to detail during the wine making process and a respect for the land and vines. So glad to hear you'll be back - we look forward to welcoming you!

My wife and I went to Buffalo for a short trip. After reviewing the reviews on the web, we decided on the Mansion. What a great choice!
When we checked into our room, we went upstairs and within 5 minutes the butler had parked our car and brought our luggage to the room. We used the shuttle service all night and it was super.

Our room was at the very front of the house and had a nice fireplace and very ample bathroom.

My wife and I were most impressed with the honor bar. All of the liquor was top shelf. I cannot drink alcohol due to a medical condition and I was incredibly surprised to open the refrigerator and find Buckler NA beer. Most places do not even think to carry NA, let alone Buckler which is one of the best.

The breakfast was also very nice, European style( salads, meats and cheeses in addition to standard American cereals and pastries). We even had some scallops wrapped in bacon at our breakfast spread.

In short, the Mansion deserves the Number 1 ranking!

Thank you! As a traveler who uses online reviews to plan your trips you understand how valuable your review is to other travelers. So glad to hear you enjoyed the complimentary valet parking and downtown Land Rover transportation - it's always a luxury to have your car valeted upon arrival and then not need to use it again until it's waiting curbside for you upon departure. Thank you for sharing your preference for Buckler NA - we are always updating the premium Honor Bar wine, spirits & beer selections and we give special attention and priority to guest feedback, preferences and requests. A perennial favorite amenity of MoDA guests is the hotel's unique, European breakfast - we're excited to announce that we have added a hot breakfast item to this complimentary breakfast buffet as another option for guests. Thank you for choosing The Mansion on Delaware Avenue and we hope to welcome you back on your next trip to Buffalo.
