New hotel opening near Buffalo Niagara International Airport

A new $14 million SpringHill Suites by Marriott will open in Williamsville Wednesday.

The 108-room hotel is at 6647 Transit Road near the Thruway exit. The 71,500-square-foot hotel sits on 3.6 acres of formerly vacant property. It will employ 45 people.

The company behind the project is Scott Enterprises, an Erie, Pennsylvania-based hospitality company. It owns 27 different hotel, conference, franchise restaurant and resort concepts, including Splash Lagoon Indoor Water Park in Erie and Peek N’ Peak Resort in Clymer. It sought $1.05 million in tax breaks from the Lancaster Industrial Development Agency but received $550,000 in sales tax and $114,600 in mortgage recording breaks.
