The check-in was somewhat slow for us. A lady at the check-in desk kept walking away while working with us. However, overall check-in process for others seemed to move promptly. All staff we encountered in the lobby were very friendly including the staff in the temporary parking area. We could not ...
When reserving room, be sure to ask for falls view. The falls view at higher level floors (mid 20s and up) will absolutely take your breath away! Caveat...you WILL pay for that view. There are several taxes and fees that the hotel will charge to stay at the Marriott IN ADDITION to the regular room ...
Great hotel, love the location. Very clean, friendly and accommodating. Two draw backs is the $40 CAD daily parking and the cost of Starbucks. 2 Grande Vanilla Lattes cost $18 CAD. Overall I would recommend and return.
Located in a former creamery building, The Sterling Inn’s modern style is crisp and inviting. Our room was very comfortable with a gas fireplace that took the chill off quickly. Staff and front desk were friendly and efficient and ready with suggestions when asked. Be sure to visit AG downstairs ...
We got a room with a view of the falls and were happy with our room on the 15th floor. The staff was very friendly, helping out with restaurant recommendations, parking, and even giving me an ice / snow scraper for my car with the snowy weather. The parking did cost an extra $25 dollars though. The ...
Perching on the border between Canada and America, the city of Niagara Falls houses one of the world's most famous waterfalls. The Canadian side of the Falls sit in the “Golden Horseshoe” of Canada's Southern Ontario region, across from the New York sister city across the border. Take the opportunity to see the falls from the top, the thundering base on the lower Niagara River, or even from behind. At dusk, the Falls become a totally different attraction, with the neon reflections from the Fallsview Casino and the nightly rainbow light show illuminating the water. Take things up a notch afterwards with the amusements at Clifton Hill or a literally revolutionary meal in the rotating Skylon Tower.
Get an up-close and personal view of the Falls, with a ride on Maid of the Mist boat tour, venturing close enough to feel the mist of the water on your face. Alternatively, take a look from another angle behind the base of the great Horseshoe Falls, shooting down by elevator and strolling the observation decks at the Journey Behind The Falls experience.
Wildlife fans should check out the Butterfly Conservatory at Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens. As well as 40 acres of herb gardens, fragrant roses and sculpted hedgerows, this attraction features more than 2,000 butterflies flying free among the exotic blooms and greenery.
Queen Victoria Park sits opposite the Falls, contains unique plants from around the world, and is one of the best places to take a few panoramic photos of the Niagara River Gorge.
Shopping isn't neglected at Niagara Falls. Lundy's Landing includes the Canada One Factory Outlets with over 40 brand-name stores. The nearby neighborhood of Clifton Hills is filled with amusements and souvenir shops. For a decadent shopping excursion, head over to the Galleria at the Fallsview Casino Resort.
For a family dinner at Niagara, grab some pizza or go for one of the multiple buffets in the area, from Indian to Sushi to Brazilian fare. A fine dining experience is certainly different at the Skylon Tower's Revolving Dining Room: as you enjoy rock lobster or tenderloin steak, the view never stays still and you'll have the chance to see Niagara Falls from all 360 degrees.
Luxury hotels in the city of Niagara offer unparalleled views of the Falls, with many along Niagara Parkway like the Four Points Sheraton, Crowne Plaza and Embassy Suites all close enough to the gorge to practically hear the roar. Most attractions are within walking distance of the horseshoe curve of the city, and you can bag a bargain family stay from around $50 per night, right up to $130+ for towering 4-star suites.
Enjoy outdoor concerts in Montbello Park, energetic stunts and street performers careening on Clifton Hill, and fireworks as you cruise along the river. Niagara's summer season is filled with events.
In the fall, the Niagara Food Festival offers cuisine prepared by local restaurants and celebrity chefs. Later on in the year, guests enjoy the Festival of Lights, with over three million lights used to decorate the area, creating 125 animated displays.
Summer is the best season to visit Niagara Falls. Average temperatures are in the 80s, and the activities are in full swing. With hotels busier and rates higher in June and July, fall is still a very smart time to plan a trip. Temperatures are cooling into the 60s, events are still planned, and crowds have thinned considerably. It's a great time to take advantage of hotel discounts as well.
We enjoyed having fairly easy access to the waterpark. But the layout is just strange and confusing. Imagine arriving after a long drive and you enter the lobby to register but need to visit the bathroom *quickly*. Surprise, there's no bathrooms available anywhere in the hotel unless you're in your room. Instead, you are sent back across the parking lot to the Perkins restaurant. Unbelievable. The "courtyards" are interesting, but they do movie-night so be prepared to hear movie and kids right up until 10pm. Not the end of the world, but something to be aware of if it's important to you.
This is my second time staying here and I absolutely love it !!!
Located in a former creamery building, The Sterling Inn’s modern style is crisp and inviting. Our room was very comfortable with a gas fireplace that took the chill off quickly. Staff and front desk were friendly and efficient and ready with suggestions when asked. Be sure to visit AG downstairs for dinner or drinks. We enjoyed a duet playing Friday evening over drinks and a wine pairing dinner on Saturday. The inn is a short walk to the Falls in nice weather.
Great location and price... room was comfortable and met are needs. I booked based on location the hotels offering fall views are far away from everything else to do. This was at the end of the falls that has all the entertainment and shops. Loved it and glad we stayed here vs bigger name hotels that cost more and were far from the things our kids enjoyed... like the sky wheel, arcades, etc.
