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.
