“Never Disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We have stayed at both the old and the new Salvatores in Buffalo. While the old one is fabulous, it is more dated. The new one, Russell's Salvatore's is outstanding. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable and inviting. Even the hallways to the rooms are fabulous ....wide and inviting. Service is spectacular. Russell is ALWAYS there. I don't know when he sleeps. He greets everyone with the same friendliness, like you've come home for a visit. We have stayed before and will stay many times again. The restaurant and bar are outstanding in every way. The steak is to die for and the (included) breakfast is delicious. You will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: We had the standard King size without jacuzzi this time and it was perfect....as was the room we had...

This was our second visit to this hotel and we were not disappointed! Since our last visit to Salvatore's they have added a 5th floor and it is beautiful! Lovely new furniture and spacious like you have come to expect from this hotel! We enjoyed the fabulous breakfast buffet and took advantage of the dinner special at Russell's. Where else but here,
can you be greeted by the owner himself! You can tell the pride of ownership everywhere you look, this hotel is wonderfully unique and we will continue to tell all our friends about about our excellent stay!

Room Tip: Try the new rooms on the 5th floor!

Staying at Russ Salvatore's Grand Hotel in Williamsville, NY, is always a pleasure for my wife and myself. We normally booked the accommodation/dinner package which never fails to please. Thank you Russ and staff for making us feel so welcome on our 44th anniversary visit.

This hotel has certainly got 'character.' There are some amenities, however, that are styled to be 'avant garde,' but present a usability issue.

Our group included college-educated world travelers, and they were not able to immediately determine how to turn on the faucet, or get the air conditioner to work! Sacrificing function for unique style is typically not a good idea.

It is quite noisy at night, but that is to be found at most hotels — people coming and going at all hours of the night.

The mid-morning staff were quite rude and unhelpful; the afternoon staff were cordial and accommodating.

We will likely pass on another stay at this hotel (favoring a more ‘traditional’ area, like the Hampton Inn), but it was a nice experience to have.

Check in: super nice, friendly, helpful staff.
Room: very clean, updated, comfortable beds, neat shower ( change temperature and turn water on with buttons not knobs)
Buffet breakfast: more then just your average continental. Has scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles and then your normal cereals, pastries, juices, coffee, fruit and yogurt.
Overall we had a great stay and it is a very nice hotel.

If you go on Tuesdays you'll get a real treat, most of the expensive meals are $10.00 and the appetizers are $5.00. We thought that the food might be substandard to meet the lowered costs but that didn't happen. Same delicious food, same everything, just a whole lot cheaper. The hotel just opened up a fifth floor and we were asked if we'd like to try it out, oh yeah!!! King size super comfortable bed, a dozen throw pillows, Bose music machine, Wi-Fi, 50 inch flat screen with many channels, the latest and greatest in shower and washroom facilities. The staff was everywhere and always asking if we needed anything, beautiful place with ambience to spare. Truly a wonderful place to call home while on the road and so close to Buffalo Airport.

Room Tip: Never had a bad room, never had cause to complain. the only thing that threw me was the revolving fr...

We have spend many fantastic weekends at Salvatore's Grand Hotel and Russell's Steak House. From the time you arrive. the staff are friendly and helpful and make you feel welcome. Whether it is for a romantic weekend for 2, a couples getaway, or stay, park & fly overnight, this is the perfect place. The dinner package includes an overnight stay, a fabulous 3 course dinner in the restaurant (Russell's Steak House) and breakfast the next morning. It is a great value. The owner Russell and his grandson are on site all the time, welcoming you back and chatting. This is such a personal touch. I highly recommend this wonderful hotel!

Room Tip: All rooms are nicely decorated and spacious. The beds are very comfortable.
