Date Night Staycation at the Westin Buffalo

Thank you to The Westin Buffalo team for treating us to a wonderful overnight stay and indulgent dinner at Patina250 in exchange for this honest review!


A couple weeks ago, Luke and I packed our overnight bags, kissed the kiddos goodbye, and made our way downtown for a stay at The Westin Buffalo. Having never been to this particular hotel before, we didn’t quite know what to expect. It didn’t take us long to realize we were in for a special staycation experience!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by personable staff and made our way to our room – a top-floor suite with great views of the city. We arrived about an hour before our dinner reservations to give ourselves time to get settled in, but it was within minutes of entering the room that the phone rang. I answered to a robot on the other end and was informed that we had a special delivery waiting outside our door. Luke and I both wandered over to find the Westin’s famous “Butler,” Chip, waiting with goodies inside for us to take home to the kids – such a sweet touch!

After the excitement of the robot visit wore off, we made our way downstairs to Patina250 for dinner. The restaurant itself is a gorgeous space with modern, yet inviting decor, delicious specialty drinks, and a menu suitable for even picky eaters like myself! Luke and I both indulged in the filet which were cooked to perfection. We enjoyed good conversation, great service, and a delicious meal – the perfect date night dinner trifecta!

After we were stuffed to the brim, we made our way back to the room for our typical hotel stay routine – pajamas and HGTV! Since we were treated to the “Romance Package” at The Westin, there was chilled champagne and chocolate covered strawberries and pretzels waiting for us in the bedroom. We both decided we weren’t SO full that we couldn’t enjoy the sweet treats!

The next morning, Luke woke up to catch a stunning sunrise over the city and I gratefully slept in until nearly 8:30 (which felt like a vacation in and of itself). We both begrudgingly packed our bags to head home, but not before taking a few extra minutes to appreciate the vibes of The Westin with sunlight pouring through the windows.

This little staycation was just the getaway we needed to reconnect and take time to truly enjoy each other’s company. If you’re like us and looking at a Google Calendar filled to the brim with family functions, appointments, projects, and busy work schedules, I highly recommend blocking off even just ONE night for a staycation – and if you do, there’s truly no better way to enjoy it than with the Romance Package at The Westin Buffalo!

Book your own Buffalo staycation at The Westin here. And don’t put it on the back-burner! The Romance Package is only valid on stays through 12/31/19.
