Expedia.com ranked it as the most in demand hotel in New York State. And there is no doubt that the Embassy Suites in Avant at 200 Delaware Avenue has enjoyed great success since its opening in July 2009. In response to this success, Uniland Development Company expanded the hotel this year into the eighth floor of Avant adding 29 rooms to the already 153-room hotel.
The success of the Embassy Suites quickly raised the bar for hotels in downtown Buffalo, with a $15 million renovation at the Hyatt Regency following soon after the Embassy Suite’s opening. The Embassy Suites has, however, managed to remain the most sought after destination booking a majority of NHL hockey teams, as well as weddings, business conferences and tourists. An excellent sales team, as well as collaboration with Visit Buffalo Niagara – VBN (formerly the Convention and Visitors Bureau), has kept the hotel’s occupancy rate consistently high since its opening.
Known for spacious two-room floor plans, it is no doubt that the attractiveness of the Embassy Suites is a major factor in the hotel’s success. And the quality of the suites go above those found throughout most of the Embassy Suites chain hotels. Premium fabrics and finishes define this hotel’s advantage.
“While the floor plan is identical, the 29 added hotel rooms were given a different yet equally impressive interior treatment from the other five floors of the hotel,” said Mary A. Hazlett, interior designer with project developer, Uniland Development Company. “We designed amore contemporary look with blues, tans and reds to distinguish these rooms from the bold and somewhat eclectic style of the other floors, while also preserving a certain continuity in overall design elements.”
The hotel features a lap pool and fitness center as well as a full service Capello salon. Dining options abound at Avant with Della Terra restaurant, featuring Northern Italian cuisine, offering a seasonal lunch, dinner and late night dining options. Hotel guests can enjoy the made-to-order breakfasts at The Cary Street Café a prominent benefit of the Embassy Suites chain. The Avant Beanery, located on the first floor, features Starbucks coffee as well as other quick breakfast and lunch options. Finally, from 11AM to 11PM, lighter fare can be found in the hotel lounge. There are also banquet facilities for up to 350 guests and seven break out rooms.
