From Buffalo Rising:
BF Patel and family have opened Niagara Falls’ newest and most unique hotel in recent years. Originally built as a Chocolate Factory for the Niagara Chocolate Company in 1912, the building later became home to the northeast headquarters for Moore Business Forms employing thousands of Niagara Falls residents for decades. After Moore closed its operations in Niagara Falls in the late 2000s, the building sat vacant for a few years before being purchased by the Patel’s in 2010.
After partnering with Marriott, Waterbourne Construction Advisors, Carmina Wood Morris, and Mussachio Architects and investing approximately $12.8 million into the project, the iconic and beloved building has been reinvigorated with new life as a Courtyard by Marriott hotel.
