Guests are checking into the Marriott HARBORCENTER today. Rooms are located in an 11 floor tower above the seven-story base of the complex that fills the Webster Block across from Canalside. The Marriott includes 194 rooms, 11 suites, and five meeting rooms with nearly 6,000 sq.ft. of space.
Room rates are in the $200/night range, but a 19th floor Presidential Suite with two bathrooms, a kitchen and lounge goes for $1,500/night (entry image and below).
The $172 million project also features two full-size NHL ice rinks, a Tim Hortons, (716) Food and Sport, and a five-level, 750-space parking structure. Fowlers’ Chocolates, Modern Nostalgia/Blue Collar, Clayton’s Toys, and Red Siren have been opening along Main Street.
The Marriott will join other recently opened downtown hotels which include the neighboring Courtyard Marriott Canalside and the Hilton Garden Inn on Lafayette Square. It will be followed shortly by the opening of the Curtiss Hotel later this year and the Westin Buffalo in 2016.
Populous was the general HARBORCENTER architect, with GSB serving as associate hotel architect. Construction of the project was managed by Mortenson Construction. The hotel is managed by Shaner Hotel Group. Shaner owns and operates over 40 hotels, including properties as far west as Edina, Minn., and south to Florida, but with most of the properties in the Northeast.
