Fantastic view of falls

If you want a room with a view, this is the place to stay! Great view of the falls. Staff let's them down a bit... No free wifi, and the option to pay for it was not offered at arrival. Didn't really make an effort , which even the cheap motel 6 lodges staff do! Think they are relying on location, location, location....

Hotel did not meet my expectations. I understand paying for the parking but not for wireless.

Great view of the falls

This hotel has the best location for walking to the falls. It is just a block away from the incline you can take if you don't want to make the trek down to the falls. But walking is only about 5 minutes. There is a pretty steep incline coming back up if you decide to walk! We stayed on the 20th floor which had an amazing view of the falls. The hotel room was a little dated but you cannot beat the location and view. Plus, we didn't stay in the room that much. The staff was so friendly and very knowledgeable about the places to eat. I would recommend this hotel.

Good for a quick stay

My family and I stayed at the Falls on our way down to Buffalo to head home, we paid for a fallsview room but was a little disappointed to get a 5th floor room where trees blocked most of the view, not sure if the view gets any better the higher up the rooms go but assuming it does. We did get to see some of the falls and a great view of the fireworks at night. Overall the room was nice, older but it was perfect for a one night stay. There is a parking fee of $16 a night. I would stay at this hotel again but ask for a room higher up.

Stay away from lower floors i.e. "City View"

Had a nice 2nd night stay on the 11th floor. Horrible first night in the 2nd floor. I should have known better than choosing the lowest priced option for this property. The City View is essentially a view of the parking lot on the 2nd floor which could honestly be considered a separate building (though attached). Take my advice which is validated by the staff I spoke to - DO NOT stay below the 8th floor because you will NOT see the falls from your room. The receptionist also recommended against the highest floor if you want the very best view. His advice 9-11 are best. The surrounding area is great for dining out and exploring the town.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

If you like to walk, you will enjoying a day out on foot as there is plenty to see. Do the Maid of the Mist if you want to see and "feel" the falls up close.

The perfect Niagara Falls view.

We asked for falls view and end up getting falls and city view. Can't get any better then that. At 10pm we had the perfect fireworks view right from our room. Loved it.
