We stayed here for one night, in town to see a concert at the Keybank Centre (fyi: no Uber in Buffalo! But the cab ride to the venue was only $8 and we were feeling good after a few beers at the show, so we didn't mind the short walk back after the concert!). The front desk staff was friendly...

We were hear for an event. While the room we were in was beautiful, the food was absolutely disgusting! First I order a glass of wine from the bar (which was in a different room than the dinner) and it came in a dirty glass. The buffet style food was served with rolls that were hard, a soupy mac and...

Probably expected too much. The place is very nice but I thought the room floor plan was not thought out right. Way too much space in the bathroom and not enough in the living area. Who needs a raised bathtub that takes up over half of the bathroom? Parking is another story, but I expect that is typical for the...

Stayed here for a wedding. Enjoyable, comfortable stay. Nice to be in a unique and historic hotel. Each room a little different and well done. The staff was outstanding, everyone was friendly and helpful. Pleasantly surprised to find out their was a complimentary breakfast. A great way to enjoy downtown Buffalo.

We drove across the Canada / US border on our way to Buffalo and were asked by the Customs attendant where we were staying. Upon answering he said 'great choice - that place is no cookie cutter hotel'. We couldn't agree with him more - our suite was fantastic and everything about our stay was great. Huge shout out to...

The hotel is beautiful! I love the decor and architecture. The front desk staff was very helpful with parking options. I chose the parking garage just a block up. It was nice to have free breakfast both mornings also!

I went to Hotel Lafayette for my sorority banquet yesterday. I also stayed in the rooms. The hotel is absolutely amazing and the people that live in the apartments are very kind and sweet I got lost a couple times and they went out of their way to try to help me find where I was looking to go.

My husband and I spent the night while in town for a concert. Check in was fast and we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite without even asking. The room was very large with a full modern kitchen complete with stainless steel appliances. It wasn't as clean as I would have liked ( shelves on wall were dusty) and...

My stay at the Lafayette was great! I stayed in a suite with a king bed, fireplace, seating area, workstation, and a luxurious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean, spacious, and a great place to relax after a long day of meetings. The entire staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious...
