Romantic Weekend in Niagara Falls
Spanning the Niagara River between Ontario and upper New York, the thundering falls are one of Canada's top tourist destinations, drawing over 14 million people annually. They look good by day and by night, when colorful spotlights flicker across the misty foam.
Even in winter, when the flow is partially hidden and the edges freeze solid, the watery extravaganza is undiminished.
SPECTACULAR LOCATION AND VIEW
Be astounded by spectacular views from the huge windows in our two-room suites overlooking this beautiful landmark. Expect an unforgettable stay at our modern hotel beside Niagara Falls with excellent service, a friendly multi-lingual staff, and more space for family and work in our two-room suites. Executive suites at this Niagara Falls, Canada hotel have full views of the Falls and a full-size sofa bed.
Relish a daily complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast and our complimentary Evening Reception* that includes two alcoholic drinks and snacks. Enjoy a meal on-site at the Keg Steakhouse & Bar overlooking the Falls, or sample delicious desserts in T.G.I. Friday’s. Then unwind in our indoor pool, whirlpool and video arcade.
On, over & in the water!
This is the day you've been waiting for! Getting wet, getting up close to the falls and experiencing them first-hand. You have a few choices. First up is the iconic Maid of the Mist boat ride to the foot of the falls (there are Maid of the Mist options from both the Canadian side and American side of the falls). Bring your camera, and your sense of adventure!
Feeling even more adventurous? There's another option that departs from Niagara-on-the-Lake: a Jet Boat tour of the Niagara River and its whirlpools. You are guaranteed to get wet on this one!
Another popular and fun way to experience Niagara is on the White Water Walk, a walkway perched along the edge of Niagara's most turbulent rapids. Close by is the equally popular Whirlpool Aero Car, an antique, aerial cable car suspended 250 feet (76 meters) in the air, crossing between two points of the Canadian shore above the Niagara River's spectacular rapids and whirlpools.
Niagara Falls & Table Rock
Dive right into Niagara Falls, so to speak, at one of the two iconic attractions at Table Rock: Niagara's Fury or Journey Behind the Falls. The former is a 4-D (that's a polite way of saying you will get wet!) tour of the creation of Niagara Falls: temperatures drop 20 degrees and water bubbles and sprays as the floor tilts and trembles beneath you. Kids love it!
Journey Behind the Falls is a literal behind-the-scenes walk in a tunnel behind the falls. In spring and summer months, don a free biodegradable rain poncho as protection from the mist of the Falls. Elevators drop 150 feet through bedrock to tunnels that lead and to the Cataract Portal and the Great Falls Portal. In winter the mist of the falls freezes in spectacular ice formations on every tree and building to form a breathtakingly beautiful display.
When all of this excitement leaves you starving, head over to Elements on the Falls Restaurant, which has a truly spectacular view of the Horseshoe Falls and is the closest dining experience offered near the stunning natural wonder. This is a good choice for a pre-dinner cocktail as well.
Notice: sailing type and available is based on time of year & time of your arrival, however, each option is a great experience!

A little history, a little nature
Start Day Three with a visit to the Sir Adam Beck power station. You can observe the workings of one of Ontario's largest hydroelectric stations and learn first-hand how this natural, non-polluting power source captures the overwhelming flow of the Niagara River. The station is about six miles (10 km) north of the Falls.
Then it's off to the Butterfly Conservatory, with more than 2,000 colorful butterflies floating freely among lush tropical blossoms. Kids love wandering along the paths through the rain forest setting.

Niagara Falls Tours
Experience the best of New York City by booking tours in advance.
Let’s face it, Niagara Falls Ontario Canada has a superior view of Niagara Falls over Niagara Falls New York USA. Niagara Falls New York does not have any hotels which offer any type of view of the Falls. If you want to stay at a hotel with a view of the Falls it has to be on the Canadian side of the border.
One common misconception about Niagara Falls is that it is one large waterfall. The truth is, it is made up of three waterfalls: Bridal Veil Falls on the U.S. side, Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side, and American Falls on the U.S. side. Bridal Veil Falls is named for its appearance, as its gushing cascades appear similar to a bride’s white veil.
