Plan Your Staycation Buffalo Niagara!

We know the old song about Buffalos who roam, but what if you’re a Buffalonian who prefers to stay close to home? If you’re like me, then by this point in the winter you’re itching to get out of the house and go somewhere! But don’t think you have to travel far to have a relaxing getaway. Below are six spots to staycation in the 716.

Curtiss Hotel

If you’re seeking a swanky getaway downtown, check out the Curtiss Hotel.  Luxury finishes and high-tech enhancements will definitely make you feel like you’re in vacay mode. The rooms have all sorts of sweet gadgets and if that’s not cool enough, there’s a rotating bar downstairs at Chez Ami.  Or have a drink upstairs at Vue and take in the view of the city. Also, did we mention that Curtiss Hotel has an Urban Hot Spring? Doesn’t that sound lovely?! Unlimited use of the Urban Hot Spring is included in both their Winter Staycation Package and their Saturday Staycation Package. Staycations are as fabulous as ever at The Curtiss Hotel.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be at the Urban Hot Spring at Curtiss Hotel

Head downstairs to Lafayette Brewing Company during your staycation at Hotel @ The Lafayette

Hotel @ The Lafayette

Hotel @ The Lafayette is a historic gem in downtown Buffalo. It has been a hotel for over 100 years and was renovated in the 1940’s, which explains a lot of the art-deco influence. It’s also the first building in America to be designed by a female architect. With Lafayette Brewing Company downstairs you’re sure to have a ton of fun on your staycation at Hotel @ The Lafayette. The newly installed “bar-cade” at Lafayette Brewing Company is complete with pinball machines, billiards, darts, foosball and shuffleboard. Some of their 57 unique guest rooms even have a window into the shower which, as you can imagine, is pretty entertaining! You can learn more about Hotel @ The Lafayette’s Dinner Package and Stay and Play Package here.
