As I frequent business traveller to St. Louis, I have stayed a number of times at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in that city. It is a first class luxury hotel right along the Mississippi River. It has an excellent restaurant, a comfortable bar, and well-appointed rooms. So, when I recently found myself unexpectedly spending an overnight in Buffalo, I immediately booked myself and my wife into the Adam’s Mark explaining to her that I was quite familiar with the brand from the St. Louis property.
Woooops! Big Mistake !
The Buffalo version is more like an econo motel off the Interstate – a blight on the brand. There is only a coffee shop and a smelly “sports bar” - no nice retaurant. Our room had a malfunctioning thermostat than ran the gamut from 56° to 88°. The Front Desk “explained” that the heat went off automatically when the room was empty. Really? We were in the room, and up and down during the night trying to keep the room temperature somewhere near 70°.
The bathroom sink didn’t present the same challenge. It had NO hot water at all. Fortunately the shower did!
There was a lot of noise during the night from the highway outside. The hall on our floor on one of the elevators smelled of cigarette smoke.
The only thing first class about the Adam’s Mark in Buffalo are their room rates.
If you’re looking for the best hotel in Buffalo, this isn’t it. Try the Hyatt.
