Wonderful Trip!

We had a wonderful time here. The hotel was great. We were in Room 1917 and it had an amazing view! We were on the corner so we had windows on both sides of the room. Room was always clean. Only thing I did not like like was they wanted an extra $15.00 a day for parking. We found a parking garage on the opposite side of Applebees's that was only $5.00 a day and a very short walk to our hotel...worth the extra savings. Other than that, we had a great time and the room view was spectacular. Stay in room 1917 and you will not regret staying here at all!

Purchase the Adventure Pass for $44.95 for the 4 main attractions and 2-day bus pass. Worth every penny! Had a blast! We got it from the Welcome Center right by the Candian Horseshoe Falls.

Great place to stay

The view was amazing both day and night. You can see the Falls lit up at night from your bed. The shower has enough pressure that you have to brave yourself, it felt like a massage.

You are walking distance from the IMAX and the Bodies Exhibition, both are excellent. Also the restoraunte at The Table Top visitor center is overlooking the Falls. The view is mesmerizing!

2 Star at most

Our stay at this hotel was not satisfactory. The hotel staff was unfriendly, the room was dated and run-down, the view of the parking lot was not what I was expecting when staying in Niagara Falls, to use the WIFI was an extra charge of $35 (no thank you), Parking was an extra $20, and a soda from the vending machine was $30. I'd give this hotel a 2 star at most. Will not be staying here again.

needed a break

Hotel had no hot water, chamber person called for maintenance and when he came he was demeaning to her. He said there is hot water when clearly there wasn't, and there was no hot water in Jacuzzi. The mattress was awful both of us woke up with sore backs and found it hard to sleep all night. Furniture in room was torn in both chairs. We have stayed prior to this and had the same room with no complaints. They say they have a lounge on 14th floor when all it is, is a bench with windows to look out.

Great View and packages

A planned trip and purpose would make you enjoy your trip. We went there for the view, jacuzzi and the romance package. Veronica and Nicole were great. Call them by name and they'll be able to help. We didn't need the big flat screen, the ref and the other luxuries. Just the good price for a suite with jacuzzi, coffee maker and good food. Great staff.

Short Notice

The stay was very pleasant; the staff - very helpful; the coffee maker was broken, the ice maker on the floor was broken. But for the price, and the location of the hotel (over looking the Niagara Falls) was great.

fuming in IN

First let me say it is worth see the Falls, taking a trip on Maid of the Mist, and touring Journey Behind the Falls. Now the hotel. Shop around. DO NOT GO BY THE DESCRIPTION ON this site. Call the hotel directly if you can. I can not trust this site any longer to be accurate on a hotel's description. First, this is not the only hotel close to the Falls. Second, nothing was said about an "amenity" of $16 dollars for parking A DAY!!! Yes, that is correct. PLEASE ADD $16 (CANADIAN) A DAY FOR PARKKING in an Applebee's parking lot!! Was not happy upon checking out to receive the bill for an extra $60 for our 3 day stay. Upon check in we were told that there is an extra $15 for parking. No one said per day or that tax is not included. With a huge amount for an amenity you would think that would be included in the price of the hotel room or signs would be posted around the hotel saying parking $!5 a night. There is not lounge to look at the Falls. Fitness room does not contain any type of weights. Pool is very cold. The only restaurant on site is of course Applebees. The other two are a very long walk away. Free WiFi only for certain rooms and only located in the lobby and "lounge".
