Walking into the Hotel @ The Lafayette is like taking a step back in time. To the good ol' times of the 1930's. Art deco style. The lobby would be like something you would see in a Carey Grant movie. Authentic front desk room registry. Chic elevators. The hallways. Virtually everything was like the 30's deco. But ironically, the rooms... More

I stayed at the Lafayette for a wedding and loved the hotel. The rooms are recently renovated and gorgeous. The only thing that could make this hotel better is a few more amenities they are missing like a small shop selling bath products and a spa! The hotel rooms are comparable to a 4 star hotel in any major city,... More

I loved the decor of our suite, which had almost everything you'd expect In a standard hotel room (however, there was no iron, just an ironing board). My only complaint was that the room was SO LOUD. We were by the elevators, so that noise was constant, and we couldn't sleep because we could hear the showers and toilets running... More

When traveling to see friends in Buffalo I chose to stay at the Hotel at the Lafayette once again. Everything was spectacular from Alex at the front desk, to the valets when going to and from, this spectacular hotel gets top marks in my book!!!

This is an open letter to Rocco Termini. It is part love letter, part plea. Mr. Termini, I am so thankful for you for buying and restoring this wonderful hotel in the heart of our wonderful city. It is beautifully done and you re to be commended for it. We stayed last night in one of the suites and had... More

After having stayed here, I can't see why anyone would go back to the Hampton Inn. The rooms are stunning, spacious and very tastefully decorated. The pricing for what you get is very hard to beat. Especially if you're from Toronto, you'll be shocked at what you get for $200 a night. On the improvement side, Hotel@Lafayette can feel a... More

Walking into this place is like dropping in on sepia toned movie set from the 1930's. It has character out the wahzoo. Way cool. We stayed in a 2 bedroom on the 3rd floor(302). It cost $270.00 after AAA discount. Valet parking was another $20.00.Never had to wait for my car. This place gets a lot of weddings and we... More

If you are happy staying at the Red Roof, then do so. If you want an authentic historic experience with modern touches, The Lafayette is for you. Each room is unique with amazing murals on the wall of the world's fair that was hosted in Buffalo in 1901. The hotel was designed and constructed by Louise Bethune, the world's first... More

We stayed the Canadian long weekend at the Hotel Lafayette in a two bedroom suite comfortable to fit the needs of my family of 6. Spacious enough with two full bathrooms, a full kitchen and two private queen sized bedrooms. We loved the unique look of the hotel and the rooms. We were told it was originally built in 1904...

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The junior suite was awesome. Fireplace, living space, desk, bedroom, glass walled shower and two TV's. I was literally in awe with how nice this hotel was and spacious. The building itself is very cool. It's old, and you could literally get lost in all the different staircases and hallways. The bed was... More
