Starwood’s world-renowned Westin brand will soon debut in Buffalo, N. Y. 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.
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 designed to inspire wellbeing.
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).
The Westin Buffalo will occupy the first five floors of the new building, being developed by Uniland Development Co., and feature a separate entrance and lobby on Delaware Avenue. In addition to 4,000 square feet of event/banquet/reception space, the hotel will offer 6,000 square feet of outdoor meeting space.
