receive e-mail regarding which is the "best
fallsview hotel" in Niagara Falls. This
can be a
difficult question to answer. Obviously you
want a great view but which is the best?
The closer you
are the better the view. But there is more
than one falls! The closest hotels to the
Canadian Falls are the Marriott Fallsview,
Tower Hotel and the
Embassy Suites. Between the three the Embassy
slightly edges out the Marriott and the
Tower Hotel because you
see more actual falling water. Higher floors
are not necessarily better but they do offer
a more unique perspective of the entire park
and surrounding area. Either way the view is
absolutely stunning and you can really feel
the power of the Falls.
on the Falls is the closest hotel to the
American Falls. While the view of the
American Falls is great it's almost twice
the distance as the Embassy and Marriott are
from the Canadian Falls. The one advantage
the Sheraton has is for viewing the Falls
when they are illuminated at night. It's a
postcard view to say the least. It's also
the best hotel for watching the eight minute
The Hilton is
situated more towards being between both
falls and offers a unique view of both. If
you stay at the Hilton consider booking in
the new tower. The higher floors offer a
better view as they are higher than the
casino across the street and you will have a
completely unobstructed view.
One item you
may or may not have considered is the size
of the room. Before the Embassy and Hilton
were built most hotels offer small
rooms when compared to today's standards. The
Embassy and Hiltons rooms are considerably
larger than your average fallsview hotel
room and they receive high marks for that.
While the view plays an important part of
the view it doesn't necessarily mean it's
the best location for getting around to see
the sights unless you plan on spending your
entire stay in your room. The main area for
viewing the falls is called Queen Victoria
Park. It's also where you board the maid of
the mist and other attractions. The Sheraton
on the Falls is almost at the foot of
Clifton Hill and you can walk from there to
everything. All the other fallsview hotels
are about a fifteen minute walk to the park.
Most of the hotels offer a shuttle for a
$10.00-$15.00 fee but they are not timely.
If you don't mind walking you can skip the
The Marriott Fallsview has the best fine dining and a more
adult atmosphere. The Hilton's Watermark
restaurant has the best nighttime view of
both Falls for a
very unique fine dining experience.
Yes it does
rain in Niagara Falls and nothing could be
worse than being cooped up in a hotel room
all day with kids. For this reason we give
the Hilton Fallsview and Sheraton on the Falls high
marks for their indoor water parks.
unbiased opinion we think the Embassy Suites
Niagara Falls Fallsview is the best hotel in Niagara Falls.
When staying at
a Fallsview hotel remember parking is very limited and you
will do most of your getting around on foot. The furthest
distance from a Fallsview hotel to the park
is .7 miles or 1.2 km which is about a
fifteen minute walk. So bring
some good walking shoes and dress
There is a
change in elevation between the area of
Victoria Avenue and Fallsview Boulevard to
the Falls. You actually walk down to
Queen Victoria Park. There is no easy access
from the hotels nearest the Canadian Horseshoe Falls
unless you take a shuttle or the seasonally
operated incline railway ($2.50 each way).
The railway is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m.
to 6:30 p.m. and on weekends from 10:00 a.m.
to 7:00 p.m.
