Where to Stay in Buffalo
Whether you’re looking to gaze upon the majestic rushing waters of Niagara Falls or explore the small-town storefronts along the city’s picturesque streets, Buffalo has a number of accommodations that won’t exceed your budget. The city boasts many of the nation’s major chains as well as a smattering of high-end luxury boutiques. If you’re looking for a quiet homey stay, you may want to consider booking a room in one of Buffalo’s quaint bed and breakfasts. The majority of the area’s hotels are located downtown near the city’s convention center, though there are a number of more scenic options as well.
Buffalo Hotel Tips
Because Niagara Falls, which is a mere 20-mile drive north of Buffalo, is the area’s biggest attractions, the peak tourist season can make it a little more difficult to find lodging. This is why, if you plan to book a flight to Buffalo during the summer months, you may want to search for hotel reservations a little further in advance. The winters can be very cold and tourist traffic drops off tremendous. Because of the low volume of visitors, some smaller accommodations, specifically bed and breakfasts, close their doors during the off-season.
Buffalo Hotel Recommendations
Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, pamper yourself at The Mansion On Delaware Avenue. This luxurious four-star boutique specializes in accommodating corporate professionals, weddings and leisurely travelers. Warm up in your whirlpool jet bath or spend some time mingling with other guests during afternoon tea. No need to worry about getting directions. The hotel provides complimentary transportation to Buffalo attractions.
Stay in a real-life antique at the historic Beau Fleuve Bed & Breakfast. Built in 1882, this gorgeous house features five elegantly decorated guest rooms: the Irish Room, the French Room, the German Room, the Italian Room and the Polish Room. Each room represents an immigrant culture that helped build Buffalo into what it is today. In the mornings, wake up to a fancy candlelit breakfast complete with homemade muffins, fresh fruit and gourmet egg dishes.
Of course, budget travelers looking for a cheap stay can browse Buffalo’s selection of low-priced hotels and motels. The city’s downtown area offers travelers an Embassy Suites, a Holiday Inn and a Doubletree Hotel.
If you’re staying in downtown Buffalo, you’ll want to hop on the city’s Metro Rail, a public transit rail system. Although it only runs about 6.4 miles, the rail line runs along most of Main Street, which is where much of Buffalo’s major destinations are located. Stops include the HSBC Arena, the city’s theater district and the University of Buffalo campus. Public bus lines also service the city and surrounding suburbs.
For those planning on dividing their time between the sites of downtown Buffalo and the beauty of Niagara Falls, your best option is to rent a car. The drive to Niagara Falls is less than 30 minutes, making it easy to view the falls while taking advantage of downtown Buffalo hotel deals.
