Embassy Suites Buffalo covers a city block in the Central Business District surrounded by the city's government, finance, and legal centers. Buffalo's Theater District and Chippewa Entertainment District are within blocks and more than 50 restaurants are within a half a mile. A complimentary light rail train is three blocks away, running from KeyBank Center (home of the Buffalo Sabres and many concerts/events) to the nationally recognized Theater District: home to Sheas Performing Arts Center, Irish Classical Theater, The Alleyway Theater, The Tralf, The Towne Ballroom and much more. The Buffalo Niagara Convention Center is an easy stroll away. Anchoring the first seven floors of Avant, Embassy Suites Buffalo is part of an innovative, mixed-use vertical community reclaimed from a decommissioned federal building. Embracing green construction standards, the former structure was stripped to the shell and replaced with a dramatic glass curtain wall design on the outside and the latest in guest comfort and amenities within the all-suite hotel. Each of the two-room suites shares the drama of the glass wall views, as well as designer furniture, finishes and wall coverings. LCD televisions are mounted in both the living room and bedroom of each suite. Guests will also enjoy in-room High Speed Internet Access (wired and wireless), wet bar, refrigerator, microwave, and other extras. Ten expanded suites offer in-room whirlpool tubs. Complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast is offered each morning and a complimentary Evening Reception is held daily for two hours. Guests can experience an upscale dining experience in Bella Ciao, offering made-from-scratch Italian cuisine, and handcrafted cocktails. Guests can enjoy house-made pasta, pizza, and sharable small plates. Avant’s stunning architecture has quickly become a downtown signature. The gradual, undulating, glass wave on the front of the building creates a distinctive profile, as well as a "bump out" of additional space in Executive Suites on the east side of the building. While each hotel room has it's own distinct view including Lake Erie, the Niagara River, City Hall, cityscapes and even the mist of Niagara Falls – these "bump out" rooms offer stunning floor-to-ceiling city views with the feeling of being suspended over Delaware Avenue below. Guests can relax in an oversized whirlpool facility or enjoy lap swimming in the adjacent indoor pool. A wide variety of cardio and weight-training equipment await in the fitness center. Both areas have controlled access for hotel guests. The 200 Delaware Avenue address places guests at the center of the action for the nation's second largest food festival, "Taste of Buffalo" held each July as well as the St. Patrick's Parade with its reviewing stand within yards of the hotel’s front door. The Allentown Art Festival and the Buffalo Wing Festival are within an easy walk. Buffalo's new and improved waterfront is a must see, and provides people of all ages things to do, from concerts by national recording artists in the summer, to ice skating on the canal in the winter. Contemporary conference facilities include seven meeting rooms with a combined total of 6,238 square feet. The Executive Boardroom comfortably seats 12 at a permanent, elegant table. All meeting rooms offer full catering and audio visual support. The Embassy Suites Buffalo at Avant offers the very best of Buffalo, within its doors and at its doorstep.
