Embassy Suites Hotels has opened the Embassy Suites Buffalo, the brand’s first property in Buffalo, NY. Located in Buffalo’s Central Business District, the new sustainable-architecture hotel uses a one-room suite concept designed to pack more room into a smaller space for the cost-conscious traveler and hotel developer.
The 182-suite hotel lies in the Chippewa Entertainment District and is close to the Theatre District and Light Rail train stop. The property will share the 15-story building space with The Residences at Avant, commercial office space and restaurants and covers an entire city block. The hotel will occupy the first seven floors in the mixed-use vertical community. The hotel is owned by UniQuest Delaware, LLC and managed by Brookwood Hospitality.
The building was designed by Steiglitz Snyder Architecture to transform an obsolete former federal building into an elegantly designed hotel to be the newest addition to the Buffalo skyline. To embrace green construction standards, the builders had the former structure stripped to the shell and replaced with a dramatic glass curtain wall on the outside to provide energy efficiency.
The hotel offers 182 suites with floor-to-ceiling exterior glass walls, an indoor pool and whirlpool, a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and evening reception, a spacious atrium and a fitness center. Ten of the suites offer in-room whirlpool tubs. Meeting spaces include contemporary conference facilities, seven meeting rooms with a combined total of 6,034 square feet and an Executive Boardroom which seats 12.
Embassy Suites Buffalo is within walking distance of financial, government and entertainment districts and more than 50 restaurants and provides excellent views of Lake Erie’s horizon, the Niagara River and the Buffalo cityscape. The address is 200 Delaware Avenue; Buffalo, NY 14202.
