The Mansion on Delaware Avenue
Travel Blogs from Buffalo
Wednesday is the day that Sam and I get to spend the morning together doing a tour of Harlem and sharing a service with the Harlem Gospel Choir. We travel by coach around the city and learn some amazing history of black culture. These people are really inspiring. They have come from such oppression but have focused on the one thing that can get them through - hope. The choir is stunning. The voices of these people are spectacular. We spend an hour ...
... him, which Raquel and I joined in with *g* But it never lasted, and as soon as one song finished, he'd be set off again.
We had to stop at a Walgreen's on the way back, to pick up something for River, but the one we went to had closed the prescriptions bit, so we just wandered around a bit (I found a knitted hat with ears and plaits and a purple flower, which I ended up buying *giggles* along with an animal hair remover roller thing, because Raquel ...
Saturday 10th November I was very excited for the day trip to Toronto, I went along with Erica and family - took us about 2 hours to get there after a chaotic drive through for coffee at Tim Burtons, we somehow ended up with 5 drinks for 4 people and then had two consecutive spillages! We first visited Queens street in the city centre which was very eclectic and full of unique boutiques and stores. They took me to lunch at ...
Leaving Niagara Falls, I stopped to gas up in town a block from the hotel on my way to the border crossing. This was my first experience with Canadian gas pumps and ATMs that would not take my US Visa check card. I had to go inside and use my card "the old way" at the register. No big deal, but inconvenient.
Gassed up, I headed to the border crossing to Buffalo, NY, passport at the ready. The bridge across ...
... I have ever seen). There's a bit in it where she's walking through a narrow path with natural rock walls on either side of her. That was exactly was the Winding Way was like. You could touch both sides with your hands but not with your arms outstretched. I didn't think of the amount of rock above me so I managed to wind myself through to the end of the path with no panic attacks! I took some footage of it as well, as much to have something to concentrate ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Mansion on Delaware Avenue Buffalo
Superlative and unique
My wife and I have travelled in many countries and most of the major cities in the U.S., and we would rank The Mansion among the top two B&BS we've stayed at (beside the Holuloa Inn on the Big Island). Not only is this a gorgeous facility, but the attention to the guests is unrivaled. The staff will mix your drinks, and bring you back and forth to restaurants! You will never look at hotels or Buffalo the same again.
Solitude in Luxury
We were looking for a quick getaway for the w/e. After exploring all the options available to us, we decided Buffalo for a change. Why?
well, it has an amazing history with world famous architectural gems hidden through out the city. We actually stumbled across the 'Mansion' during the web search and decided to venture in. It seemed that such a place couldn't possibly exist in Buffalo. Simply put... a real treat.
The staff are terrific and supremely accomodating, nothing is out of the question, no request too small. A fantastically relaxing night in a updated classic. The butlers' mission is to make you feel at home....mission accomplished! We'll be back to torment them again.
Absolutely the best
We received a gift certificate for the Mansion and when we made our reservatons they asked us if we would be dining downtown. We told them that we would like to go to the ChopHouse restaurant a new restaurant and very hard to get reservations, they said they would check and we did get them. we were driven to the restaurant and picked up when we were finished. we had a lovely room with a butler who brought us cocktails and a snack after we returned. we liked it so much that we went again and the staff remembered us by name. A really great place and we will definitly go again.... thanks to all the staff they were wonderful
A place I like to call home
I am looking for an opportunity to go back home! To The Mansion that is! What an absolute treat! You are pampered from the minute you walk through the door and they take your bags from you! And I can't say enough about the brunch with the Cheese Blinzes... delicious.
Do not hesitate!
If you can get a room, which is by no means easy, book it. You get the kind of room here that you'd pay $300-400 for in LA, New York etc. This place makes me actually miss being in Buffalo. It is also well worth going from Classic to Grand for the extra $20. Kent is great, like they said below, but to be honest they all are. Gino, the owner, out to sort out that Orbitz thing, though...
Too bad the mansion doesn't honor the reservations they take!!
Conde' Nast needs to give this a gold review
What contemporary style in a 1850's restored building. Great chefs, butlers and music; we truly appreciate the treatment we recieved.
What a find! I've stayed in some great hotels around the world but have never experienced the degree of service I received at the Mansion. From the butler service (usually only available to repeat customers at 5-star hotels), the chocolate-dipped strawberries at turndown to the complimentary cocktail reception and shuttle, the Mansion pampers each guest from sun up to sun set. I only wish that I had an excuse to come back to Buffalo regularly. Thanks to Kent and the entire staff -- you guys rock!

I travel to Buffalo for business and always expect nothing more than a bed, but The Mansion on Delaware was an incredible surprise. From the Butler service to the personalized letterhead they gave a new meaning to service. THey gave us a tour of the facility to get us familiar with it. The rooms had incredible linens and a multihead shower. I'd strongly reccomend the experience.
