Our contract specifies a room rate of $169.00 per night. This rate is a single/double rate, so please plan on +$15.00 per extra person for triple/quad occupancy. Guest room rates are quoted exclusive of applicable state and local taxes (which are currently 13.75%).
The guest room rate does not include breakfast, but it does include complimentary Wifi in the meeting rooms, public spaces, and guest rooms. The contracted guest room rate is available 3 days pre & 3 days post convention as long as rooms are available.
Our proposal has us using almost the entire convention space in the hotel (all but two boardrooms) plus around 30,000 square feet in the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center, which is across the street from the hotel. In the Convention Center, the proposal has us using North Hall on the Exhibit Level and rooms 103 and 104 on the lower level.
The current plan is to have Exhibits, Art Show, and Dealers room in the convention center, while Programming will be in the hotel convention space.
Note: the hotel and convention center are connected by an enclosed walkway over Pearl Street.
Here’s a map of the hotel convention space (PDF).
And here’s a map of the convention center (PDF). If you will look at the left side of the “Exhibit level” map, you will see that the walkway to the hotel connects directly to the North Hall.
