Palatial Hotel in Downtown Buffalo near Niagara Falls
On average, 4 million cubic feet of water will plummet 165 feet down Niagara Falls into the Niagara River every minute, a spectacle that draws roughly 12 million visitors to the falls each year. Since it’s located about 20 minutes away from the falls, the Adam's Mark Buffalo hotel is not surrounded by an otherworldly cloud of mist, but the hotel is grandiose in its own right. Mirrored columns and tiered chandeliers line the lobby, which is rife with marble. That said, when the lure of seeing one of the wonders of the world gets to you, feel free to book a tour in the hotel’s lobby. And while you’re staying here, you’ll be within walking distance of the Niagara Convention Center and Buffalo’s theater and entertainment district.
With this deal, you get a $30 credit at three Seneca casinos—Seneca Niagara in Niagara Falls, Seneca Allegany in Salamanca, and Seneca Buffalo Creek, which is just down the street from the hotel. The deal also includes a dining credit at the first-floor Deco Restaurant, which serves gourmet plates such as sichuan barbecue salmon ($25) and coq à l'orange ($24). Cap off the meal by drinking fine wines under the glow of marquee lights. Next door, a glass roof covers the Tiffany Rose Lounge, a bar decked out with model sailboats.
Buffalo, New York: Intriguing 19th-Century Architecture and Family-Friendly Attractions
Located in western New York and across the border from Ontario, Canada, Buffalo is right at the confluence of Lake Erie and the Niagara River. In 1825, the Erie Canal connected the lakefront town to important shipping ports along the Eastern Seaboard, transforming Buffalo into a flourishing commercial center almost overnight.
During the boom period, the city's wealthy residents began commissioning architects such as Louis Sullivan for lavish building projects. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Martin House is one such project, a Prairie-style masterpiece built in 1904 for Buffalo businessman Darwin Martin. See the city’s eclectic collection of 19th-century architecture on a walk through downtown, including the colorful tiled dome of the art-deco city hall. About 1.4 miles north is Millionaires' Row, which is lined with palatial stone mansions.
In 2010, Forbes named Buffalo one of the best places in the country to raise a family, thanks in part to its sprawling park system and wealth of hide-and-seek spots. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, Delaware Park features 350 acres of open space flecked with scenic walkways and landscaped gardens.
