This hotel was very nice in every way--very new, clean and comfortable. It is modern in design with some hints of Arts and Crafts and the Millard Filmore era style. The hotel is right in town, just a few blocks from the central business district and a number of restaurants. It blends in quite well with the surrounding residential neighborhood with its large mature trees, carefully restored homes from long ago, and well kept lawns. The hotel location makes it convenient for pleasant town walks in the area.
Considering that East Aurora is a tourist destination, it was curious that there were no maps or information handouts in the hotel regarding local attractions and restaurants. In fact, the desk clerk apparently did not know the location of the Roycroft Inn, as the directions given were not correct, or at least not clear. However, I did notice that the clerks were very efficient and capable, and they had to be, as there never seemed to be more than one on duty, even at the very busy times in this relatively large hotel. The breakfast was very good and was served in the pleasant surroundings of the large lobby area, complete with fireplace.
One negative note. After a long day of driving, I had a narrow window between arrival and dinner reservations. Shortly after check in, I laid down for a quick nap. Shortly after that, the phone rang and woke me up. It was the front desk asking if "everything was OK in the room". I assume this is some sort of hotel or Hampton Inn policy, but it is really very silly to disturb guests like this after check in. A hotel of this caliber should be, and was fine, and most guests will let the front desk know if there is something wrong in the room.
