A never-ending deluge of water barrels over Horseshoe Falls, creating a thunderous roar and a constant spray of mist. As the largest waterfall in Niagara Falls, it’s one of the world’s most famous natural phenomena—and it’s just steps away from the 42-story Embassy Suites by Hilton Niagara Falls. The hotel’s two-room Falls-view suites offer stunning views of the cascade through floor-to-ceiling windows. City-view suites, meanwhile, face the surrounding skyline. Both are spacious, boasting separate living and dining areas.
In the morning, hit up the complimentary breakfast buffet, which includes an omelet station. You’ll also get a C$40 dining voucher to The Keg Steakhouse & Bar onsite and a C$20 voucher to the Outback Steakhouse located nearby. A pair of shuttle passes gives you easy access to the Falls, casinos, and other local attractions. Included tasting at Inniskillin Wines and tasting and tour at the Pillitteri Estates Winery supply a sampling of the fruits of Niagara's Wine Country.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Panoramic Views of the Falls Near Vegas-Style Casinos and Water Parks
Niagara Falls straddles the border of Canada and the United States, with segments located in both New York and Ontario. But the Canadian side of the Niagara River is universally hailed as the finest vantage point to take in views of photogenic spots, including the American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls.
The iconic Maid of the Mist has ferried raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls since 1846. The tours begin running in early April, depending on ice conditions. Year-round, Journey of the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls. Visitors board an elevator that descends 150 feet into the bedrock, then stand at an observation deck steps away from the cascading water.
A 10-minute walk from the falls, you'll see the neon glow of the Clifton Hills neighborhood. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
