Stay in style in Buffalo, New York

The city of Buffalo, New York, has undergone a remarkable transformation in the last years, from a redeveloped waterfront and revitalized neighbourhoods to a burgeoning craft beer scene and over $1 billion in new investments. Like architecture? Visit seven Frank Lloyd Wright structures or stroll through Frederick Law Olmsted parks.

Enjoy art and entertainment? Spend the morning with Andy Warhol at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the afternoon with a Broadway show at Shea’s Performing Arts Center and the evening with the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.

And, if you enjoy landmark properties and luxury hotels, these two establishments are worth a stay : Hotel Henry, an urban and modern boutique hotel that has recently opened in an old hospital and The Mansion on Delaware, the only four diamonds property in the entire city.
