BUFFALO, NY - After nearly two years in the works, the Hilton Garden Inn is officially open in Lafayette Square in Downtown Buffalo.
The hotel, which is located in the former Tishman building, includes a lobby bar and a restaurant that's open to the public. It also houses the headquarters of The Hamister Group, who developed the hotel. They say they're happy to be part of the transformation downtown, and believe the hotel provides a terrific view.
"You can see all of Buffalo, you can see Lake Erie, you can even see the mist of Niagara Falls on a clear day. The views of the city out of all of these rooms that start on floor four are just spectacular," Mark Hamister, Hamister Group Chairman and CEO said.
Hamister says his son convinced him that downtown Buffalo was coming back, and now was the time to be a part of it.
