Strong reactions to new Amherst hotel


People either love it or despise it. 

We're talking about the new Wyndham Garden hotel that opened yesterday in Amherst. 

Reactions on The News' Facebook page to Samantha Maziarz Christmann's story in today's paper were strong and polarized, like these:

"Ruins the whole look of entering the Village," remarked reader Doris Jones. 

Sage Kadow called the project "a total monstrosity."

Others, though, say the hotel -- now that is has been built -- is actually pretty nice.

"It's really a beautiful building inside....nice apartments with great finishes!" said Sandy Nelson.

Joel Altre-Kerber said the project grew on him to the point where he now likes it.

"Building to the sidewalk, not set back, makes it a much more accessible and integrated into the environment," Altre-Kerber said. "The Hampton Inn up the street was a missed opportunity after knocking down The Williamsville Inn."
