Niagara Falls is a wonder, and it isn’t a wonder why. The falls are as stunning as they are powerful; you can feel the thundering waters everywhere in the city, and the rainbows emerging from the mists will certainly catch your breath. However, because Niagara Falls is such a unique natural destination — and has been for nearly two centuries — the area often attracts significant crowds of tourists, especially during the early summer months when the weather is perfect.
If you don’t enjoy being among the masses when you travel, you’re in luck: Niagara Falls does boast a number of luxury opportunities, from accommodations to attractions. Because most of Niagara Falls’ visitors consist of economy travelers, you can enjoy the falls without descending into the hoi polloi by planning your trip around these luxury hotels.
Boasting the closest location to Horseshoe Falls — and thus offering the best room views of the falls from any hotel in the city — Marriott is among the best places to stay within Niagara Falls. Not only has this hotel won the prestigious title of “Niagara Falls Hotel and Restaurant of the Year” by Niagara Falls Tourism, but it continues to obtain the AAA Four Diamond Award, which stands for refined, stylish and enhanced quality in décor and services. Thanks to these ratings, you can trust those hotel suites at the Niagara Falls Marriott will be up to your luxury standards.
By staying in the Marriott, you have access to Serenity Spa by the Falls — a state-of-the-art spa facility with views of the falls — as well as a convenient skywalk to other attractions around the city, such as the Fallsview Casino.
The Tower Hotel
Also sometimes advertised as the Fallsview Tower Hotel, this is a smaller hotel in the city — but still one of the best. Because of its magnificent height, every room boasts outstanding views of the Niagara region despite that the hotel itself is about a 25-minute walk from the falls. Designed in a modern style, the Tower Hotel looks fresh and cool, which makes it feel especially luxurious.
The Tower Hotel does claim one of the highest-rated restaurants in the city: The Keg Steakhouse & Bar. Plus, guests of the hotel can enjoy on-site activities such as golf, horse riding, bowling, and tennis. While there is much to explore in and around Niagara Falls, the Tower Hotel can entertain you for days.
Niagara Falls Hilton
The Hilton in Niagara Falls is as deluxe as you would expect from any Hilton establishment. The rooms themselves are exceedingly stylish while remaining comfortable for families or those unaccustomed to luxury. There are a variety of suite sizes, with different amenities in each, but you can request a view of the falls that will provide even greater satisfaction during your trip.
The number of on-site restaurants is perhaps what sets the Hilton apart from its luxury competitors in the area. There are three signature restaurants within the hotel as well as an all-you-can-eat breakfast buffet, a cafe and two lounges for late-night leisure. Like the Marriott, the Hilton is connected to the Fallsview Casino, and it is just steps from shopping opportunities in Niagara Falls.
Sheraton on the Falls
Another luxury hotel with breathtaking views of Niagara Falls, Sheraton on the Falls is one of the highest-rated hotels by visitors to the area. As such, the hotel often sees huge crowds of guests, especially during Niagara Falls’ busy season in early summer. Thus, if you are interested in booking rooms here, you should do so as early as possible to ensure you get an ideal room.
Perhaps the family-friendliest of the luxury hotels in Niagara Falls, Sheraton on the Falls is connected to a three-acre indoor water park, where kids of all ages can splash and slide year-round. Plus, many of the dining opportunities are made for parents with kids, such as the Niagara Falls Rainforest Café. Fortunately, the hotel offers more mature relaxation opportunities as well, in the form of the Christienne Fallsview Spa — which boasts a renowned infinity hydrotherapy tub with gorgeous falls views.
For nearly two centuries, Niagara Falls has been a sought-after destination for luxury travelers. If you are tired of your typical trips and want to experience well-appointed accommodations somewhere new, you should plan your next vacation in Niagara Falls.
