The Mansion on Delaware AvenueWhy we love it: A French-inspired mansion-turned-hotel with elegant perks to match
- A beautiful building from 1869
- Perks like round-the-clock butlers, Land Rover chauffeur service, and evening cocktails
- An ever-changing collection of local contemporary art
One of Buffalo’s first boutique hotels, The Mansion occupies a stunning Second Empire building in the Allentown Art and Theatre District. While the property includes grace notes like tall bay windows and mansard roof lines, it’s most famous for its round-the-clock butler service and fleet of Land Rovers, which offers free chauffeur service within a three-mile radius of the hotel. Guests here can expect the ultimate in customer service, including elegant touches like overnight pressing and shoe shines and complimentary perks like continental breakfast, a fine coffee and tea bar, and evening cocktails.
The 28 guest rooms marry historic character with contemporary luxury. Pops of coral and navy are offset by neutrals and plenty of natural light, while Italian cotton linens, in-room Starbucks coffee, and multi-head showers stocked with Molton Brown amenities leave guests feeling pampered. Most rooms even have whirlpool baths, but for a truly indulgent stay, upgrade to one of the suites, which range from 600 to 800 square feet and feature a separate bedroom and parlor anchored by an original fireplace. If you can pull yourself away from your room, be sure to check out the hotel’s impressive collection of art from the Buffalo Niagara area—each unique piece is available for purchase.
