Top Views from Hotels in Niagara Falls
Stay on the Ontario side for the best views. While some hotels on the New York side are in close proximity to the waterfalls, they only have views of the spray. For full-frontal action, a Canuck hotel is the way to go.
Don’t be fooled by the label: just because a hotel’s name contains the word ‘falls’ doesn’t mean it has a room with a view. New York’s Sheraton at the Falls is a 10-minute walk from a good vantage point. When booking make sure it directly states “fallsview room” on a higher floor to avoid disappointment of obstructed (or non-existent) views.
Here are the top views from hotels in Niagara Falls.
