EMBASSY SUITES HOTEL EXPANSION COMPLETE AT AVANTby mmcnamara
Project added an additional 29 rooms to Buffalo's signature hotel
BUFFALO, N.Y. - Uniland Development Company recently completed a 29-room expansion at the Embassy Suites Buffalo designed to accommodate more meetings and events. The additional 29 rooms occupy the 8th floor of Avant at 200 Delaware Avenue, bringing the total number of rooms offered to 182. Work began in November 2010 and was completed on time to accommodate summer travelers along with a full calendar of meetings and special events.
"The demand for hotel rooms coupled with increased banquets and meetings helped us make the decision to expand. Believe it or not the new rooms are already sold out," said Bryan Drew, general manager. "We're couldn't be more pleased with the response from the Buffalo Niagara community and its visitors."
Ranked as the number one demand hotel for all of New York State on Expedia.com, the world's largest online travel company, Embassy Suites Buffalo was recently named to the 2011 Expedia® Insiders' Select™ List that recognizes the top 1% out of 130,000 properties for delivering excellent service, a great overall experience and a notable value.
"The hotel's success is a testament to the team we have in place, many of which have been recruited from across the country," explained Michael Montante, vice president with project developer Uniland Development Company. "I still marvel at the power of the Hilton/Embassy flag and that alone brings with it an elevated level of service and exemplary product."
The 153-room hotel opened in July of 2009 and includes banquet facilities for up to 350 guests and 7 break out rooms. Also located within the hotel are a lap pool, fitness center, four dining options and Capello Salon, a renowned full service hair and nail salon offering basic spa services including massage.
