Experience the rebirth of an architectural masterpiece on historic Millionaire's Row. The Edward Hotel was originally designed in 1910 as a single-family home by E.B.Green, Jr. Over a century later, you can stay in one of its nine boutique rooms, each eclectically created to provide an enchanting experience for each of our guests. The Edward Hotel is perfectly positioned within the city of Buffalo! Enjoy walking down tree-lined streets to Elmwood Village for coffee or groceries at a local co-op, shops and restaurants, or a bar for a late night cocktail. Venture out a little further to enjoy a musical at Shea's Buffalo Theatre, a tour of the Buffalo AKG Art Museum or The Darwin D. Martin House Complex, all under 15 minutes driving time. The Edward Hotel is a 10-minute drive to KeyBank Center for a concert or downtown to the Buffalo Convention Center for a business meeting, and a 30-minute drive to Niagara Falls for a day of sight-seeing or Highmark Stadium for a Buffalo Bills game.

We had a wonderful stay at The Edward! The location was convenient and close to everything we wanted to do. The bed in the room was very comfortable as well! The host was very accommodating and brought us extra towels after we asked. I actually made a mistake on the duration of my trip for the booking and the host was able to work her magic to help us out. 10/10 (besides the cold weather lol)

A small, exceptional hotel in a quiet location with extremely lovingly designed rooms.
The self check-in was well described and
The support via WhatsApp is to be emphasized.
Own reserved parking spaces directly in front of the house
The price-performance ratio is very good. It is highly recommended

We’ve stayed at The Edward twice and absolutely love it. Each room is different but equally pretty and the beds are comfy. It’s a unique, beautifully decorated boutique hotel that despite the very upscale look is still reasonably priced. The digital self-check in works very smoothly and the communication from the hotel’s front desk contact, Erin, is always great. The neighborhood is lovely, so if you want to take a walk, there are beautiful old houses to wander past. The Edward is our go-to location for stays in Buffalo.

The hotel is well located just off Delaware but if you are driving parking can be an issue. The decoration is over the top in the style of Madam Claude. The bed in the Kennedy room is very soft with a dip in the middle of the mattress. The sheets are not luxurious and the blanket was polyester. The bathroom is large. The water pressure is very weak. The floor is not heated. The plug in the sink was broken. Amenities are not generous. No tissues or body cream was available. The digital check in was not a pleasant experience for a luxury establishment. There is no breakfast or food available in the hotel. The most extraordinary thing was that the bed was not made and the towels were not changed because we “ didn’t ask for it to be done! “. There were no glasses or bottled water on the bedside just paper cups.

Thank you for your review, Gary! The Edward is a 3-star hotel with a price that reflects that. Your affordable stay provided you with a 450sq foot suite with a deep-soaking tub, leather loveseat, fireplace, canopy bed, foyer and wet-bar. None of our floors are heated as this is a historic mansion built in 1910, but the charm is worth the visit! We are not able to serve breakfast due to not having a restaurant, but we are only one block from Elmwood Village with a plethora of boutique shops, breakfast diners, coffee shops, grocery co-op, and bars. Our housekeeping staff is more than happy to service your room, but we do not enter to protect guests' privacy if they don't respond to the "Good Morning" text from our front desk. We hope you will give us another try the next time you're in Buffalo!

We stayed in The Chelsea room. It was small and dark with poor lighting. We couldn’t see outdoors: the windows in the bedroom were opaque, and the ones in the bathroom were venetian blinds that didn’t work properly. The king size bed took up most of the room with pillows that disappeared in the large gap between the wall and the bed. There were no chairs and no place to work. We had to unplug the TINY “mini fridge” at night to avoid the racket and bright lights that would have kept us awake. The furniture was gaudy to the point of being vulgar. The building overall was a poorly executed concept. Our one plus was our host, who was very attentive in trying to help us (virtually) in getting the heating to work. It never did, but we got an extra blanket.
We referred to it as “The Dungeon”.

Thank you for your review, Susan. We deeply regret that this was your first experience with us, but we thank you for your insight so that we could remedy much of these perspectives. We hope that you'll return in the future to find that The Chelsea room is more comfortable, has new lighting, and the LED fridge lighting is not an evening disturbance. Or, perhaps you'd like to try a new boutique room on your next visit as each of our nine rooms are different!

We rented two rooms: one is the Puritan and one is the Deco. It was the canadian long weekend and as a family of four we wanted to treat ourselves to a luxurious night — unfortunately the night turned into something we had to endure rather than enjoy. Outside it was 4 degrees C. Inside it felt to be about 12 degrees C. The heat was not working in both rooms. The hallways were cold. This place looks nice on the surface but the puritan room in particular was terrible. No curtains on the windows! So it was bright and freezing in the room. We barely slept and there really was no one to help and no one to talk to about this. We started our evening here with high hopes and left very disappointed. I am sure , for this price, there are better places nearby. I have requested some compensation from the manager but she says she’s not authorized — this to me — is another issue. We are used to be able to deal with a concierge who can assist, we really didn’t get any assistance (Eg moved to another room or a refund so we could have moved to another hotel — with heat!!)

Thank you for your review! We deeply regret that this was your first experience with us and that our heat contractor was unavailable in the late hours of the night. He has since given us additional training on how to maintain the split units in each room so that we can be assured that this does not happen again. We hope that you'll come try another stay with us now that we have remedied the situation!

The Edward Hotel is an exceptional local area boutique hotel. The hotel features private, quiet, and well furnished rooms. Erin, the host, was communicative and very responsive providing us with a seamless reservation and arrival. The accommodations are on par with four star hotels for much less. The bed is by far one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. I will definitely stay here again.

Even though I liked the room and hotel, the fact that the HVAC company was not called until the morning after I checked in is unacceptable. The temperature at check in in the Puritan room was 62 degrees and it was ~34 degrees; eventually went below freezing. I texted with front desk or manager who continually told me it's a corner room and is just cold and takes a while to warm up and it'll happen although no heat came out of unit. The inside temperature all night did not go above 60 degrees (yes, my friend had a small thermometer). I waited for the repairman the next morning who eventually pulled the mini split filters and they were filthy. I would have checked these myself except the unit is close to the ceiling and out of reach. Never a genuine apology from the hotel personnel and this was more than an inconvenience.

A wonderful spot for a weekend away! We enjoyed walking in the neighborhood, exploring the shops and restaurants that were close by. The hotel was very clean with all of the amenities one would need. The employees were very friendly and available to assist with any requests. Would most definitely come for another visit!

The Edward is such a cute boutique hotel nestled in Elmwood Village. I was in Buffalo to see my son’s basketball games and it was the perfect location as it was a short walk to the gym. Now let me tell you about Erin who was amazing from her 1st text to me about logistics and local dining nearby. It’s Buffalo in Jan, so of course I got caught in a bit of a snow storm and my travel plans were up in the air. Erin was so very accommodating as I dealt with travel woes. With every delay and cancellation, she was so understanding and allowed me & my daughter to stay in our room without hesitation (of course there was a fee but again very accommodating. I highly recommend staying here and will do so everytime I’m in town.
