This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at and I am an event planner who travels a lot and stays at high end hotels for work. The hotel is new, clean and a great facility.
General facilities: The front desk area is just inside the door, easy to find and the front desk staff was super friendly and welcoming. There is an indoor lap pool, gym, and a spa but not an overpriced spa, a nice day to day spa where you can go for nails, hair, etc. The hallways are large and have cozy couches near the windows on each floor. I didn’t get to see their meeting room space but there seem to be plenty of it on the 2nd floor.
The Bar/Restaurant: The bar is very nice and big with plenty of seating. While I didn’t eat at the restaurant it is also large and looked very nice and I had a friend local in Buffalo tell me they do many business lunches there. Also, if you are a Hilton Honor’s member you earn extra points for money spent in the restaurant.
Evening reception: For Hilton Honor’s members you get to enjoy a private happy hour (in a room directly connected to the restaurant/bar area) that includes snacks (pretzels and mustard, carrots and ranch, chips and salsa, veggies and hummus) as well as draft beer, well drinks and wine for an hour each evening for free. I wasn’t interested in the well drinks so I sat at the bar with some friends and was able to go into the private room to grab some snacks and bring them back to the bar, so that was lovely.
Complementary breakfast: This is held in the private room also and can I just say I was blown away at how amazing the breakfast was and all for free! There is not only a huge buffet of food (eggs, bacon, sweet rolls, fruit, cereal and milk, french toast, potatoes and so much more that I am forgetting) but there is a chef onsite for cook to order omelets. You pick your ingredients (ham, bacon, spinach, onions, and so much more) he sautés them, adds the egg and cheese, seamlessly flips it to perfection and then hands it over to you. He would work on 3 to 4 at a time and they were SO delicious!
The Hotel Room: Being an Embassy Suites I believe all rooms have a living room area and separate sleeping area, however, this was one of the largest hotel rooms I’ve stayed in. The living room area was as large as a living room in a home, with pull out couch, desk space and TV. The sleeping area was also very large. I had a room with 2 queen beds and had a friend stay with me and I never once felt like we were on top of each other. The bathroom is also a very nice size.
