We were in Buffalo for a wedding with our daughter and her fiancee and the four of us stayed in a two-bedroom suite at the Hotel @ Lafayette for three nights. For a suite with a living room, full kitchen and two full baths, the rate was very good and the hotel was beautiful. There is a restaurant adjacent, a... More

Old style hotel that has been beautifully renovated. Rooms are clean and well-decorated. Updated bathrooms that sparkle and comfortable beds. The restaurant had some interesting selections as well as tried-and-true favourites. An experience!

This hotel used to be an urban legend; a place everyone talked about but where no one stayed due to the old clientele. After millions in renovations as the movement to change the landscape of downtown Buffalo took hold, this is one of the new hot places to stay. Our room was lovely; a fake fireplace that displays in both... More

Was not too sure what to expect when I booked a room at this hotel. I had a business presentation to make the following day to a group at that hotel. So, since I was arriving late the day before, it was easier for me to take a room at the same hotel. Let's say I was not disappointed to... More

Decor was beautiful and service was very friendly and knowledgeable from the front desk to the bartenders.

Finding the Lafayette was a dream.. Then It came true. We enjoyed a romantic, comfortable, clean environment. The staff was professional and helpful. It's located in the downtown area of Buffalo but the "feel" is secluded, serene and again lovely! The wife and I spent our tenth anniversary in this lovely spot. It's decor is warm and classy!
