Reviewed 24 June 2012

Disclaimer: this hotel had only been open 4 weeks at the time of my stay. Unfortunately it showed; the details just weren't being paid attention to. One night I had no bath towels, there were coffee mugs but no water glasses, the front desk person couldn't find my room - literally. She offered to show me my room and then couldn't find it. But the staff is warm and welcoming and the place has a lot of potential. I look forward to a future business trip to see how they've progressed.

This brand new boutique hotel is beyond excellent!!! Everything is modern, chic, unique, staff is friendly, and the location is perfect. Centered in Lafayette Square, withen walking distance to shopping, dinning, the waterfront (all new attractions there), and an exciting nightlife. Will definitely recommend this place and will be staying here on my next visit to Buffalo!

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking 'Lafayette Square' for the best views!

The developer has taken an old hotel and made it an interesting "labor of love". There are glimpses of the 1910s, the 1940s and today. We went for a wedding, the ballroom was gorgeous and the room was one of the nicest I've had the pleasure of staying in. They are also doing interesting things with the venues, the ballrooms, a tea room, bakery, restaurants, wonderful florist and even a store where you can buy the items that make the rooms unique. Buffalo may not be a destination, but if you ever are in the area, and want to be close to downtown, this is an experience rather than just a place to lay your head.

Room Tip: the junior suite is the room in the pictures
