Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center is an innovative 88 room full-service hotel and conference center with modern purpose, designed to fuse with the architectural legacy of the National Historic Landmark Richardson Olmsted Campus. Hotel Henry’s Urban Resort is distinctive from the type of “resort” that most travelers expect. Instead, the surrounding city of Buffalo – its galleries and cultural institutions, architecture, nearby parks… are the treasures to be enjoyed. The Urban Resort is the design-rich city of Buffalo itself. Situated on 42 acres within the City of Buffalo’s museum district and cultural corridor, the Urban Resort Conference Center is surrounded by parks, lakes, museums and connected to the fun and vibrant Elmwood Village. Featured in The New York Times, Architectural Digest, The Huffington Post, and more, we look forward to welcoming more international press, showing the world what the city of Buffalo has to offer.

I was quoted a $151 per night price for my hotel room, with the third night free. When my reservation can back with a $453 total, I called and a manager told me very specifically that the third night would be credited back to me and I would not be charged for it on my final bill. This was not true. I was billed for the $453 on my final bill. The hotel provided an email address to deal with billing issues and I NEVER GOT A RESPONSE BACK. This is an extremely sleazy bait and switch. What’s worse is that most of the facilities listed on the website are currently closed and not accessible to guests. The property is lovely, but the place is a rip off and the people and completely unresponsive. Stay elsewhere.

Perhaps you haven't yet ventured onto the ground of The Hotel Henry? I can assure you that it is an astounding place! The rooms are absolutely gorgeous and quite frankly the staff is just as amazing. I stayed due to friends wedding and it went off flawlessly thanks to the helping hand of the staff and kind accommodations of the hotel! Another bonus is how delicious the food is! In my many years of existence I have yet to ever taste food of such high quality! I give this Hotel Top Mark's and am already looking forward to my next visit! ( on a side note this is also a neat place to stay if you are into the rich history in buffalo and have a curiosity for the paranormal)

We had a lovely four night stay at the Hotel Henry in July of 2020. Things are different because of the COVID 19 pandemic- do not expect all of the normal amenities to be in place and please give these hotel workers a break!! The building and renovations are stunning and full of character! The lawn and gardens have been restored and and are nice to walk through/ picnic on. If you get the creeps from old buildings, then this is not the place for you!! Parts of the campus are in various phases of re development, and there are creepy buildings around. You have been warned. The HOTEL part of the property is modern, clean, and retains its historic feel. There is a free audio tour of the hotel exterior if you are interested in hearing more about the history, although other history tours with guides are not running right now. The towers building, which connects the guest wings, is not open now for exploration due to the pandemic, which is understandable. Check in was smooth and we were given directions to our room on the first floor. Even though we were two rooms away from the elevator, it was very quiet! The rooms are spaced far apart, so there was no elevator noise. The room itself was beautiful- 20 foot ceilings and 14 foot windows. We did not find the room to be small as others have said ( room type was standard double double). Beds were comfortable, maybe a little firm. Bathroom was spacious and shower was hot and had good water pressure. The whole place was sparking clean! My one complaint was that there was no mini fridge in the room. It would have been nice to store our leftovers/ coffee creamer, since the hotel coffee bar is not open right now; however it was not too much of an inconvenience. Because of the pandemic, things are a little different. The hotel restaurant, 100 Acres, is not serving breakfast right now. Instead, the hotel is offering breakfast bags for $5. You order it the night before, and it includes local yogurt, a pastry (we had coffee cake all four days), and a piece of fruit. The breakfast bags are delivered to your door. There is also a complementary happy hour on weekend evenings right now. They offer beer and wine and you are allowed to stroll around the hotel grounds with your drink. The bar inside is not open. Housekeeping is NOT cleaning rooms if you stay three nights or less. We stayed four nights but elected to not have someone come in to clean after three nights. If you need towels, trash bags, or anything, the staff will get it for you. We had dinner at the 100 Acres restaurant on site, which I would HIGHLY recommend!! The inside part of the restaurant is NOT open right now and you will be seated on the patio. Additionally, you MUST make a reservation for the patio, because I understand it is nearly impossible to get a table otherwise. If you can't get a table, order takeout- the food is THAT good. The restaurant is a farm to table concept and everything we had was delicious. Do not miss the hummus and the crispy potatoes! There is a free jazz concert every thursday and friday in the summer, so we booked a table on Friday for the concert! The staff at the hotel were wonderful throughout our stay. If a small hiccup happened, they immediately fixed it. Each staff member we interacted with was kind, helpful, and they all wore face masks. As far as location, this hotel is a little oasis in the city. You can definitely walk to Delaware park, the Albright Knox Gallery, and Elmwood, but we mostly drove. Elmwood especially is a little bit of a hike to get to the main shopping part. Parking downtown was easy. Overall, we had a nice stay and we hope to return in normal times (non covid) to stay again and explore the parts of the hotel we were unable to see! And I cannot stop thinking about the hummus at 100 Acres, so we will definitely be back there as well!

I was looking for an interesting place to stay while in Buffalo for the night and boy, did I find one. Firstly, I cannot stop thinking about the building itself. What an incredible piece of architecture. The property and layout is IMMENSE and I highly recommend exploring the grounds to see their gardens (which are pollinator-friendly), incredibly old trees (some limbs so large they are held up with stilts), local art installations, and to admire the sheer size of the building. I posted a few photos of the buildings as I could not stop saying "Wow" out loud when taking them. Check-in was friendly and quick, and I got to admire the rain streaming down the huge windows of the entryway in the meantime. Due to Covid-19, the viewing towers and main building were closed to the public which is understandable, but I'll have to make a second trip as I'm sure they are worth the visit. The juxtaposition of the old brickwork and stainless steel elevator/other modern amenities was quite striking and the large corridors allow you to imagine the patients walking alongside you. I'm a large fan of the paranormal and definitely felt some presence near the gathering area on our floor. I would love to have stayed longer to see what we could encourage to interact with us. Everything in our room was very clean and included all the amenities needed minus a fridge, but it wasn't a major inconvenience. The room was a bit smaller than I had expected, but I'm a student and reserved at the lowest rate, so I wasn't upset. The bathroom was spotless and the shower was nice, and the views from every window were pretty incredible. We ordered from 100 Acres, their kitchen, for dinner. We both ordered burgers which were delicious and we enjoyed their home-churned ice cream for dessert. The portions were perfect. I'll definitely be staying there again if I have the chance and will hopefully get to see more of the building's interior and gardens. If you're interested in architecture or the paranormal, I highly recommend staying at Hotel Henry.

OK...so we are in the final phase of Covid 19... so I am thinking there may be some amenities available at the Hotel Henry and as a fan of the Mt. Washington Hotel, I thought I would give it a try to help preserve another historic landmark...but this place is downright creepy in my opinion...don't be fooled by the great photos on the website....when I got there (check in is really late at 4pm) I basically got my room key and was told to walk through what looked like a dirty side service entrance door...not really the grand entrance I was envisioning...nothing was easy...trying to figure the place out was a challenge...still smelled of the old insane asylum in the halls but the room smelled ok...the place felt really barren in the corridor and very lonely...room was tiny((ok I went for the least expensive with city view which was not a view of anything resembling a city... except the grass) it felt more like a hospital room in many ways)... there is an offering of complimentary local beer and wine on weekends... but I was not told about this until the second day of my weekend trip with a note under the door...would have liked my beer upon my arrival...so on the 2nd day I figured I would enjoy my local beer...the guy tells me NO BEER today...only wine...they missed their delivery...I'm like what...go get a 6 pack of beer because that is what you are advertising with the note you slipped under my door...it's Buffalo...so many local breweries...anyway...no beer...and I cant get a glass of wine until 6pm....even though I'm just a tad early and everything is on the table right there in front of me...ok...back to my "hospital" room...hmmm...been away all day and nobody cleaned my room or made my bed....I called only to be left in the "cue" time after time after time......we only clean rooms every third day they tell me...says I was informed of this upon check in which I was not?? Now I am getting a little more than annoyed...would have been great to be able to sit at the bar but it was moved outside in the 90 degree baking sun along with all seating for the restaurant...I wanted to eat indoors with a/c and enjoy a fine cocktail... all the other restaurants in the area were open for inside dining so there was no excuse...I left and found another venue...I would have checked out immediately...but of course they make you book for a minimum of 2 days...I suffered...and I have stayed at many GREAT resorts and even basic hotels provided better service. Shower and bath were nice...they did leave some towels outside my door after I called because they did not clean my room...but I am happy to be out of there and be home at last !
