ECONOMIZE TIME AT BUFFALO
How in Oct Five Days of Siijht Seeing at
Pan-American Into Three.
Those who attend Expositions often
complain of the loss of time entailed in
going to and fro between their hotel
and tlie grounds, and would often
spend more time and money in the
Exposition, if opportunity offered.
Travelers who intend visiting the Pan
American this year at Buffalo, Low
ever, need have no trouble on this
score. The Exposition is fortunate on
having right In-side it a building which
is in itself an object of intense interest,
ami one of the sights of Buffalo we
refer to Sutler's Hotel on Elmwood
avenue, overlooking the grounds. This
wonderful building, although only
three stories high, contains over 2100
rooms and can accommodate over 6000
guests. Its dining room will seat 1200
people to a meal without crowding and
so perfect is the organization, manage
ment anil equipment that parties of
excursionists, often numbering into the
hundreds, are taken ill and fumishid
with accommodations without creating
so run oh as a ripple of excitement.
Prom its towers and terraces a magnifi
cent view is to be obtained of the whole
panorama of the Pan-American, while
the scene at night of the illumination
of the grounds as viewed from Statler'a
will never he forgotten.
The erroneous impressions so frequ
ently fostered by runners, etc, on trains
ami elsewhere about the difficulty rf
obtaining accommodations and paying
fearful prices for them can all he thrown
to the four winds of Heaven, for
Statler's can give you a clean, comfor
table room with breakfast and evening
dinner for $2.00 and $2.50 a day, and
guarantees to take good care of all who
come. For those who do not care to
hoard at the hotel, good rroms may be
obtained at $1.00 to $1.50 per day, and
rlirstelass meals at 35 and 50 cents each
may he enjoyed at Statler's down-town
restaurant In Elliuott Scpinre. Statler's,
therefore, is a valuable adjunct to the
Exposition and intending visitors by
availing themselves of its conveniences
can save themselves both time and
money, and greatly enhance the plea
sure of their trip.
