Roughly six months ago Hotel @ The Lafayette was opened in Buffalo, New York. Hotel Lafayette is a historical building that was just recently restored. Now it is the home to 57 hotel rooms, residents, banquet spaces, restaurants, desserts, floral shop, and other boutiques.
For a little history lesson, the historic building was designed by Louise Bethune, the first female architect to be recognized in the United States. Hotel Lafayette was built between 1902- 1911 by the architectural firm, Bethune,Bethune, & Fuchs of Buffalo. The hotel still showcases the French Renaissance style of architecture that is original to the building.
