Arts & Crafts design treasure

Posted Nov 4, 2011
Location: small picturesque town with not much else of interest - the Inn itself is the point of going there.
Restored Arts and Crafts design showcase, full of both Roycroft and Stickley furniture. The public rooms are gracious, the menu interesting and well-prepared. Our room was beautifully furnished and incredibly spacious; actually in three segments - a sitting room, a large bedroom with table and chairs, and a small, secluded desk area. After a walk through town, we enjoyed relaxing there in the afternoon. There is free wifi, the bed was extremely comfortable, the bathroom was large and had a jacuzzi. Ours was a corner room, with about 15 windows, all screened so we could leave them open all night - the old-fashioned sleeping porch. We slept great! It was the most relaxing, comfortable place we've ever stayed.

Unique Hotel Experience

Posted Sep 25, 2011
This hotel is a work of art, beautifully run and maintained. It is decorated in "arts and crafts" style (each room has at least one authentic artifact), and the whole ground floor, built around a garden, is stunning. The service was friendly and efficient, the food excellent. The hotel is part of an historic complex, including shops and galleries, in the process of being restored. The town of East Aurora is traditional America at its best and most charming. Wonderful!

Gorgeous Arts and Crafts hotel at a competitive rate

Posted Jul 15, 2011
Was looking for a hotel in Buffalo and happened upon The Roycroft Inn - about 20 minutes outside Buffalo. My husband is a book collector and when I saw the name Roycroft I realized the inn was connected to the Roycroft artisans and book publishers from the early 1900s. Elbart Hubbard founded the Roycroft artisans community in East Aurora, the location of the Inn, which was built in 1905 and housed many of the artisans. The rooms are like going back in time - all Arts and Crafts furniture, very comfortable and clean. Had a fantastic dinner on the "peristyle" a wraparound porch on the Inn, great breakfast too. This is the perfect alternative to staying in a chain hotel and the room rates are very competitive. For the business traveler, there's wi fi, easy check in and check out, great service, not the usual hotel food - comfortable lobby areas, a museum, antique store and artisans shop right across the street, charming downtown with more restaurants - it's the perfect place to stay for a night or a week. Can't say enough!

I gather there had been several weddings that day. Consequently, we were unable to find a parking place on site. Meanwhile, checking in, I was waiting for someone to take my luggage. I finally had to request that my bage be brought in (it was raining). The breakfast, however, was exceptional. We were given a personal tour by staff which was very thorough and enjoyable.

Very Quiet, Relaxing Place to Stay

Posted Jun 30, 2010
Beautiful old Inn refurbished in the 1990s, mission style decor with hardwood floors and Stickley furnishings. The hotel is on a side street and very quiet. The room and service were well above average. I would stay here again.

Made the Wedding Weekend More Enjoyable

This historic hotel itself is very interesting. We really enjoyed sitting on the veranda visiting with our relatives who also stayed at this hotel. We appreciated the friendly & helpful staff who were very accomodating.

Roycroft Inn

Posted Mar 31, 2010
We loved it the character and charm of the Inn . Dinner was out of this world at the Inn. The suite was spacious only thing the bed could have been a little softer for my taste.

A Real Jewel

Posted Jan 6, 2010
This is a "real jewel" in a small, western New York town that looks like a movie set for "a small town." In this case, the Inn is a museum as well, reflecting the arts and crafts movement that began here at the turn of the century and influenced the design of Frank Lloyd Wright's furniture. Since it is "off the beaten path," - although within easy driving distance of the New York Thruway - it is unknown to most travellers but has a corps of devoted guests as well as townspeople. Don't miss it! Spend a week-end there.
