About Buffalo

Half an hour south of Niagara Falls, Buffalo was powered by the energy of the falls in the early 1900s, and was the first American city to have electric streetlights. Now post-industrial Buffalo wears its old factory buildings - many of them Art Deco behemoths - with pride. Sure, it can get cold here and it’s buried under mountains of snow annually, but this is a warm and vibrant place with a creative community atmosphere. Some of the best places to stay in Buffalo are pretty historic themselves - the falls has long been drawing people here - and our pick of the bunch is a luxury mansion conversion with top notch service.
