Former Historic Federal Building in New York's Second-Largest City Transformed into Sustainable, Luxurious Embassy Suites Hotel
MEMPHIS, Tenn., July 10 // PRNewswire // -- Today, Embassy Suites Hotels announces the highly-anticipated opening of the Embassy Suites - Buffalo. Located in Buffalo's Central Business District, the new sustainable architectural attraction also boasts the innovative one-room suite concept designed to pack more room into a smaller space for today's cost-conscious traveler and hotel developer. The hotel is the brand's first property in Buffalo, NY.
The 182-suite hotel is in the heart of the Chippewa Entertainment District and is close to the Theatre District and Light Rail train stop. The contemporary, upscale property will share the fifteen-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 a magnificently designed hotel as the newest addition into the Buffalo skyline. Embracing green construction standards, the builders had the former structure stripped to the shell and replaced with a dramatic glass curtain wall on the outside providing decades of energy efficiency.
"We are excited to be at the heart of Buffalo's Renaissance and revitalization and to be able to welcome leisure and business travelers to our modern, beautifully and sustainably-designed Embassy Suites while still offering all the amenities and comforts our guests know and expect," said John Gurren, general manager, Embassy Suites Buffalo.
"The mixed-use vertical community which is home to our first Embassy Suites in Buffalo is significant to the brand in many ways. It reflects the flexibility of our conversion builds while featuring green construction standards and also showcases the brand's first one room suite, our first new room design in 25 years," said Jim Holthouser, global head of full service brands, Hilton Hotels Corporation.
The hotel boasts 182 suites with floor-to-ceiling exterior glass walls, a relaxing indoor pool and whirlpool, a complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and evening reception, spacious atrium and fitness centers. Ten suites will offer in-room whirlpool tubs. Additionally, meeting spaces include contemporary conference facilities, seven meeting rooms with a combined total of 6,034 square feet and the Executive Boardroom which seats 12 comfortably.
Embassy Suites Buffalo is within walking distance of financial, government and entertainment districts, more than 50 restaurants and provides stunning views of Lake Erie's horizon, the Niagara River and the twinkling cityscape. The address is 200 Delaware Avenue; Buffalo, NY 14202.
