Who doesn’t love having a wide variety of options available when they travel? Well, Buffalo offers plenty of options for travelers staying in the city. No matter your budget, you’ll be happy and comfy in your chosen digs, because Buffalo gives you a choice of everything from a hostel to a four-star hotel, all in the small downtown area that is also the heart of the city.
Nearly everything is accessible by public transportation, so if you want to stay at a Buffalo hotel outside of downtown, you can survive without a car. If you do stay downtown, the area is compact and totally walkable. You can even stay in different neighborhoods within the downtown area. The north end is perfect for those who love the theater and arts and the south is ideal for those who want to be in the middle of all the action. In Buffalo, there’s always something going on.
There’s no shortage of shopping opportunities in Buffalo, so if that’s the center of your trip it just depends on what you’re in the market for. The American Planning Association named Elmwood Village one of the Great American Neighborhoods in America. This vibrant area has more than 200 unique shops and restaurants where you will find one-of-a-kind goods and boutique hotels, not to mention great examples of Frank Lloyd Wright architecture.
For the lover of vintage and antique goods, Hertel Avenue in North Park is a mecca. Give your trip to Buffalo a thematic feel by booking a stay in a bed and breakfast. The budget-savvy traveler (and shopper) might want to stay in the suburb of Williamsville. It’s a great little town for families, as it’s walkable, quiet, and full of delicious restaurants and offbeat shops to please everyone. It’s also midway between downtown Buffalo and Niagara Falls, which puts you in the center of anything you could want to do, at an affordable price.
