The New York Times: 36 Hours in Buffalo

"CLASSIC ARCHITECTURE, INTERNATIONAL CUISINE, ADVENTUROUS ACTIVITIES AND SERIOUS ART: THIS WESTERN NEW YORK CITY IS BLOSSOMING." -Amy Thomas,
The New York Times

A lot has changed in the 14 years since The New York Times last featured Buffalo in their popular 36 Hours travel column. The Mansion on Delaware Avenue was the only historic hospitality property in the city, the Richardson Olmsted Campus sat vacant, and the city’s culinary scene was limited to a select few classic eateries. We were excited to welcome The New York Times (again!) for 36 hours in Buffalo. Named one of the top 52 Places to Go in 2018 by the New York Times in January, Buffalo has been making international headlines. Hotel Henry is honored and excited to have been included in the following publications in the year since opening our doors:

Buffalo has evolved to become a true destination, marrying history and modern design, home to diverse neighborhoods, a thriving culinary scene, and stunning waterfront. “Like many small American cities, Buffalo, which had early booms from various industries, including railways, shipyards and steel manufacturing, is shedding its rusty roots and experiencing a bona fide renaissance. No longer merely the portal to nearby Niagara Falls, Buffalo is a modern and multifaceted city, more than ready for its moment,” Amy Thomas writes for the New York Times. Restored and reimagined, Hotel Henry opens a new chapter for the city of Buffalo as an international symbol of the city’s revival. We look forward to welcoming many more international press writers, showing the world what our city has to offer.
