Where to Stay in Niagara Falls
Researching Niagara Falls hotels can be tricky for a first time visitor, so it's important to determine what your specific needs include. If you really want to stay near the famous horseshoe falls, you'll want to look for hotels in the Fallsview district, however keep in mind you may be paying a premium for the location. If a fun-filled or family-oriented stay is what you're after I would suggest hotels near Clifton Hill, which have numerous attractions within walking distance including many restaurants, specialty shops and the giant Niagara SkyWheel, which provides riders with a breathtaking view 175 feet above Niagara Falls. Alternatively if shopping and fashion outlet stores are your fix, hotels on Lundy's Lane may be a better (and cheaper) option.
Visitors in search of the gambling scene Niagara Falls has become famous for should have a look at Fallsview Casino or Casino Niagara. These hotels are your best option to be close to the most popular casinos as well as the opportunity to get a room with a view of the falls. In addition, many of these hotels offer VIP services and package deals which include parking vouchers, concert & entertainment bookings and access to many high-end restaurants and lounges.
Travelers looking for a more relaxed stay, away from the bustle of Niagara Falls, would enjoy the quaint and historic town of Niagara-On-The-Lake. Located in the Niagara Wine Region, these are great places to explore the breeding grounds of the world-class wines the region is known for. If winery-hopping is an appealing activity, be sure that you travel by car or arrange for an organized tour, as the vineyards are spread out over a fairly large geographic footprint.
