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

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful hotel. The rooms in this recently-restored historical building are stylish and well-appointed, and the bed was super comfortable. We were most impressed by the very helpful and kind staff, who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, from the very quiet room they selected for us... More

This hotel is very beautifully appointed in the art deco style. The bed was so comfortable it made it hard to get up in the morning. The transom was just painted over so if there are people standing in the hallway, it is a little loud but once everyone is in their rooms, it is quiet. I would highly recommend... More

We usually stay at the Mansion on Delaware when visiting Buffalo but we decided to try this hotel out instead. Boy were we pleasantly surprised! This is a really nice hotel with some very interesting architecture. The rooms are very nicely appointed and the cost is reasonable. We had a late night drink and snack at the adjoining pub, which...

This turn of the century hotel has been totally transformed through a thoughtful marriage of yesterday and today. Upon entering the lobby you are enthralled with the beautiful restoration. Wherever possible the history of the hotel has been maintained. Friendly staff greet you at the reception desk and have answers to all your questions. The rooms are beautifully restored with... More
