I stayed here for one night on a business trip. At the turn of the 1900's this was rated one of the Top 10 most beautiful hotels in the country. The next hundred years found this hotel wind up being a boarding house for vagrants. After a multi million dollar rehab this hotel is a beautiful example of Art Deco at its finest. As you enter the lobby, you turn back the hands of time to the 1940's. The only thing that is missing is the bellhop with the funny hat to grab your bags. My room was on the third floor of this hotel and the halls are wide with high ceilings and cavernous! My corner suite is all modern with brand new furniture, flat screen TV's and stainless appliances. Featuring a full kitchen with stove, microwave, full size refrigerator/freezer, dish washer and disposal, glassware, dishes and pots and pans. Granite countertops with a nice center island and barstools centered the kitchen/living room open area. There also was a couch, 2 chairs and a desk. A separate sitting room featured a settee and another desk and closet. The separate bedroom had a queen size bed large wall hung flat screen TV and a large walk in closet. the large bathroom had all new fixtures with a large soaking tub/shower, with lots of towels and washcloths. The large size of this room would make a most comfortable apartment for anyone. The room and its furnishings were all new, but the style of the old hotel was kept intact with the original cove moldings and room configurations. Buffalo is a city on its way back! Stay here on your next trip through the area or on your way to Niagara Falls. You will not be disappointed.
