Buffalo area in midst of new hotel building boom

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo-Niagara Falls area is in the midst of a lodging industry boom, with more than two dozen new hotels expected to be built in the region over the next few years.

The Buffalo News reports that eight hotels are currently under construction, with as many as 18 others planned in suburban towns and the city of Niagara Falls.

The current projects include two new Marriott properties being built in downtown Buffalo, one of them next to First Niagara Center, home of the NHL’s Sabres. If all the projects are completed, they’ll add more than 2,000 rooms to the region’s lodging availability.

Developers attribute the building boom to the need to replace the region’s aging hotel inventory and the revival of Buffalo and Niagara Falls.
