We stayed here for two night in September in a two room sweet with a full kitchen. It was spacious enough for two adult families. We enjoyed the historic charm and details of this hotel. They did a great job in trying to preserve it to its original form. However, if you prefer new then this place is not for... More

We visited Buffalo in early October and stayed overnight at the Hotel @ Lafayette. The hotel was celebrating its 100th anniversary. Our room was on the third floor, not a very good view and the room was small with only a bedroom and bath but it had a fireplace in the bedroom, very comfortable and quiet for a short stay... More

This grand hotel which has been beautifully restored offer a large suite with a full kitchen. It was comfortable, clean and quiet. Although the area is fairly deserted at night, the restaurants and bars near the hotel were very good. All in all a very nice stay.

It's tough to be the naysayer after reading all the raves about this hotel. For the record, if you are stuck in a Buffalo snow storm you could do a lost worse. The rooms are immaculate, the towels fluffy, the staff friendly. Beyond that there is something spooky about this place. It is as if the owners decided to build... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting. It was fantastic! Walking around the hotel lets you go back in time to the early 1900's and just imagine what it was like to be living in that era. The hotel stay was terrific, especially Ashley and Steve at the front desk. The rooms are very unique and again bring... More

Was here for a friend's wedding in July and had a wonderful experience. There were multiple weddings taking place while we were there and this didn't impact our stay at all. Cute boutiques line the large hotel and it is very well located, although i do recommend paying for parking in the garage to avoid the city fines (they come... More

My brother and his new wife were married here a couple weeks ago and the venue was really beautiful. I wasn't blown away by the food, and it took a very long time for dinner to be served to all the tables. The staff were all very friendly, and although we didn't stay overnight we felt very welcome and enjoyed... More

My husband and I had visited the Lafayette hotels many times as we had our wedding in one of the rooms which was a beauty on it's on. But the one thing we did not get a chance to do until the wedding weekend was stay at the hotel. Leading up to it, the staff was incredibly helpful every single... More

This is a unique, boutique hotel. It is a change of pace from the normal Buffalo hotel, which is nice. However, with that comes a lack of customer service. What you get is fun decor, and that is about it. I travel for business, and as any business traveler knows, sometimes schedules change. I tried to cancel my reservation, but... More
