We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Hart House Hotel. The building is beautiful and our room was very nice. We especially liked the mix of styles of furniture and the modern bathroom and sink area. We stayed in the Churchill room and I really liked the beautiful rugs and unique lighting. The lighting looked like it had been salvaged from an old church and given new life at the hotel. You can feel the attention to detail that went into the design of the building and it's rooms. We also appreciated the contactless entry that made us feel safe, although we missed being able to interact with hotel staff. When things get back to "normal", we are planning to make another trip to Medina and stay at your Hotel again so we can have that experience. There is only one issue that we think needs attention. We think you should make it more clear on your website that the rooms are on the third floor and there is no elevator. I didn't notice the small line about not having an elevator on the booking page when I booked our room. All in all, a beautiful hotel in a lovely town.

Hart House was by far, our favorite hotel of a 5 day cycling journey! The building is historic and charming. Check in system worked great, and Andrew said we could store our bikes in the little lobby. Up two flights of stairs was our suite: uniquely designed utilizing architectural pieces from the original building, totally loaded, comfortable and squeaky clean. Wish we could have stayed longer, although not much happening in Medina right now. Also, probably due to the pandemic, the bar (Shirt Factory) was not open, but we sat out in the lovely shaded patio with our BYO beers. Highly recommend!

We stayed in 2 rooms and were very happy! Very easy check-in/out. Andrew was very helpful when we had a problem and it was super close to the canal. We arrived by boat. We would definitely stay again!

My overnight at the Hart House was everything. The last 3 months bonding with family had been lovely, but a self-preservation night away from home was just what I needed. Of course, it took work to make that happen. I had a Zoom presentation for my company that required some peace and quiet away from pets, UPS doorbell rings, and other distractions. I decided to book a stay literally five miles or less from my house. Loved every second. I stayed in the Churchill room and walked in on a 95 degree day to be smacked in the face with the most glorious cold air emulating from the whirring AC. Once settled in, I took a walk around the block and had a fabulous meal and a couple of cocktails at local pub. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in. Even the sunset out the window was fantastic. The fridge in the room was perfect for the Rosé I picked up on my venture. Armed with a remote that didn't require sharing, I settled into pure tranquility and bliss. Started my morning with an in room cup of coffee, nailed my presentation with the assistance of some impressive WiFi speed, and returned back home refreshed. I may have to do this every month or two. Andrew, the owner, was very accommodating with any requests. I will be back! And I will recommend it to everyone!

The Hart House hotel in the small town of Medina, NY (45 min from Buffalo) is truly a hidden gem. The hotel has a great check in system where they text you your room code and you can just walk in and go to your room. The location itself is awesome! It’s right in the middle of town and within 50 yds of Main Street restaurants and shops. The hotel rooms are on the 3rd floor of a classic old building. The first floor contains a great coffee shop, The Shirt Factory, which makes great coffee and has coffee shop breakfast type fare as well as excellent coffees. At 4pm the coffee shop turns in a high end cocktail bar with world class desserts. Having that in the same building as your hotel room is a major plus. Our room, #5, The Astor was beautiful. It had an East Village vibe in the decor with a high ceiling and exposed brick in places. The bathroom of the room was very nice. The shower is large and it has one of those rain down kind of shower heads and the water was deliciously hot. There is also a really nice large soaking tub with jets. The staff cleaned the room each morning.
