Buffalo, N.Y., is opening its first Hyatt Place Hotel.
The 138-room Hyatt Place, located on Main Street in Snyder, was built by Iskalo Development Co. The hotel is part of a $30-million hospitality complex that the Amherst-based firm is creating around the former Lord Amherst property. Besides developing the Hyatt Place, Iskalo is renovating the now-closed Lord Amherst into a 90-room boutique hotel that’s expected to open next year.
Iskalo’s Hyatt Place is one of five new hotels that will be opening in Amherst in the next year. Collectively, the new hotels could add more than 500 rooms to Amherst’s hospitality inventory.
