BUFFALO, NY — Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. and Delaware North will open a Westin hotel in Buffalo.
The Westin Buffalo will open in June 2016 at 250 Delaware Avenue as part of a new 12-story mixed-use development that will house Delaware North’s world headquarters.
Marking the Westin brand’s debut in the region, The Westin Buffalo will be owned and operated by Delaware North and feature 118 luxurious guest rooms, 4,000 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting facilities, a restaurant operated by Delaware North’s Patina Restaurant Group, and all the Westin brand’s signature services and amenities.
“The upcoming debut of The Westin Buffalo as part of this new mixed-use development will play an important role in the revitalization that is transforming the city’s downtown,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader for Westin Hotels & Resorts and Le Méridien Hotels. “Known for its distinctive wellness positioning, Westin invites travellers to revitalize and renew through the brand’s signature programs and amenities, designed to send them home feeling better than when they arrived.”
The Westin Buffalo will be within walking distance of restaurants, corporations, the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus and several major attractions, including the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, First Niagara Center (home to the NHL’s Buffalo Sabres), and the HarborCenter mixed-use development. Easily accessible from both the New York State Thruway (I-90), as well as Interstate I-190, the hotel location is approximately 10 miles from Buffalo Niagara International Airport (BUF).
