JCJ Architecture provided full planning, architecture and interior design services for this 26-floor hotel that incudes 604 guestrooms and luxury suites, a 15,000 square foot spa, and 2,000 seat multi-purpose events center. The hotel is the largest in western New York state and has been awarded a AAA four diamond rating.
The design of the building is an inventive reflection of the Seneca heritage and relationship to the region. Featured inside and outside the architecture are abstracted “woodlands” depicted in four seasons. The hotel exterior is an architectural metaphor illustrating the creation of the falls. Sculptures representing the eight clans of the Seneca Nation frame the main entry. These are examples of the types of meaningful design symbolism that are saturated throughout the facility.
