The Claremont is a charming old hotel in a handsome setting. The chapel would have been an interruption to a perfectly fine period piece.

The Buffalo Grand Hotel is an utterly forgettable piece of work, which the addition of the chapel might actually help. If done properly, while looking at the Grand today is like looking at a blank slate, the chapel could give it a focal point that would make the rest of the building recede even further out of focus. It is also a neighborhood with little charm, which the chapel could offer in its small way.

At the very least, it will be a gem in the midst of slag.
