Set in the former Buffalo State Asylum for the Insane (more recently renamed the Richardson Olmsted Campus), Hotel Henry Urban Resort is a castle-like compound spread across 93 acres that was built in 1870 and designed by Henry Hobson Richardson (whom the hotel is named after), with grounds by Frederick Law Olmsted.
Guest rooms combine three former patient rooms and feature 14-foot (4.2m) tall windows pure and an uncluttered decor, with a gray and white palette, and a storage trunk, pegs, and hangers in place of armoires and dressers. Other amenities include custom platform beds, air conditioning, work desk, a flat-screen TV and striking photos of the building’s architectural elements. Bathrooms come with Porcelanosa fixtures and an LED in-mirror television.
The 100 Acres for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and cocktails spans the entire first floor, and is decorated with modern red and Windsor-style black chairs and simple wooden tables. Fitness centre. Plans call for an architecture museum to be added as part of the complex.
