Niagara Falls is a place visited by thousands of people per month. It is one my favourite places not only in North America, but in the whole world. If you happen to be one of the enthusiasts dreaming to see Niagara Falls, you probably wonder where to stay. Here are the 5 best hotels you can stop at. But, before that, I want to mention, that I haven’t been a guest to any of these hotels. When I went to see the Niagara Falls, I was on a booked trip that included: bus ride from NYC, a boat trip (Thousand Islands), a night at a hotel (Holiday Inn in Buffalo) and visiting the Niagara Falls State Park the next day. More about it here –Niagara Falls and Trip to Thousand Islands. I had many friends wondering where to stay, if they are not on a booked trip like mine. So, I started looking for hotels nearby, and after I’ve read maaaaany reviews, here is my top 5.
Comfort Inn The Pointe
Comfort Inn The Pointe is located on 1 Prospect Pointe, Niagara Falls, NY 14303, at the entrance of Niagara Falls State Park. This is probably the closest to the Niagara Falls hotel. People say it is so close, that you can actually feel the mist. So, that sounds interesting. The hotel is close to the Hard Rock Café, the Aquarium of Niagara, the Rainbow Bridge and Cave of the Winds tours. Which means a lot of things to do! Except the free parking and Wi-Fi, you can enjoy a free breakfast as well. However, you should make your reservation as early as possible, so you can find a room at a reasonable price.
The Red Coach Inn
The hotel is located on 2 Buffalo Avenue, Niagara Falls, NY 14303-1119. It is just a few steps away from the Comfort Inn The Pointe and is overlooking Niagara Falls’ Upper Rapids. For this place people say it is so close, that you can hear the roar. Compelling, isn’t’ it? The hotel stands there since 1923 and had received many awards. Its awards winning restaurant offers different packages for its guests, and is open to the public every day. The suits in the hotel are a little bit expensive, but the guest rooms are affordable.
Econo Lodge at the Falls
Econo Lodge at the Falls on 200 Rainbow Boulevard & 2nd, Niagara Falls, NY, US, 14303, is one of the cheapest hotels to stay in when visiting Niagara Falls. Its rates start as low as 59.99$. Which is a veeery reasonable price, given the fact that you are a few steps away from one of the most beautiful places on Earth. The hotel offers free continental breakfast, Wi-Fi and local calls. Econo Lodge at the Falls is walking distance from Niagara Falls State Park and other attractions in the area. There is only an Indian restaurant on-site, but other restaurants and lounges are nearby.
Sheraton at the Falls
Sheraton at the Falls on 300 Third Street Niagara Falls, NY USA, 14303, is not the cheapest place to stay in, but is definitely one of the finest hotels in the area. Although, you should consider going to Sheraton on the Falls, which is just a few steps from the border with the USA, on Canadian ground. The second offers majestic views of the falls, so you can sit in your room and just be fascinated. Exchange students alert! Make sure you have the right to go there. Check your type of visa and the dates of its validity. Because, I’ve heard about students that were not allowed to cross the border, and others that had problems getting back in the USA. However, don’t be sad, if you can’t make it across the border. This hotel is also just a few steps away from the Niagara Falls, and offers interesting packages to its guests.
Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel
Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel on 310 Fourth Street Niagara Falls, NY USA 14303, is actually a partner with Sheraton at the Falls, which is very convenient for guests of both hotels. The rooms are big and luxurious, with TV, internet access and more. There are a few restaurants, bars and lounges on site. The hotel has new casino floor for your entertainment. There are also Spa and Salon open 7 days a week, from 8am to 8pm. So, you can treat yourselves with a massage, then win some money in the casino, before going to see the majestic falls at night! Sounds like a plan to me!
