“Experience Buffalo with top-notch personal service at the Mansion on Delaware. The special team of butlers will run your bath, bring your meal, light your fireplace and reserve you a seat at Buffalo’s most exclusive restaurants. Interiors are decorated with pastels and supremely comfortable duvets and bedding, and every room is complete with its own work desk. The oversized windows, an erstwhile symbol of wealth in the 19th century, now flood rooms with light and offer views of downtown Buffalo. The Buffalo-Niagara region, apart from being home of the spectacular Niagara Falls which thunder 167 feet into the Niagara river, offers a wealth of attractions for guests. The Buffalo Museum of Science and Niagara Aerospace Museum will tempt any scientifically minded visitors, while art buffs can head to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, one of the oldest public arts institutions in the United States. ”
“Unexpected…perfect blend of historic and modern…cosmopolitan, European atmosphere in the heart of Buffalo”… just a few of the comments made by guests and media alike. The 2001 restoration of the historic building, erected in 1866, became a symbol of revival to the Buffalo community. The Mansion on Delaware Avenue is a wonderful example of Second Empire architecture, with its mansard roof, porticos and huge rounded, hooded windows harking back to a time when Buffalo was a profitable port and manufacturing center.
