A seemingly endless deluge of water plunges 173 feet (53 m) from the apex of the Horseshoe Falls. The thunderous roar, the scattered rainbows in the mist, and the sheer magnitude of Niagara's largest section are enough to overwhelm the senses. Inside the 42-story Embassy Suites by Hilton Niagara Falls just a stone's throw away, you can watch the roaring waterfall from the comfort of your suite.
Up high in the two-room, 570-square-foot (56 sq. m) Falls-view suite, floor-to-ceiling windows capture Horseshoe Falls. A living room and dining area with a mini fridge and a microwave remain separate from the bedroom, where two queen-size beds appear to perch over the jaw-dropping scenery. After attempting to mimic the roar of the falls in the silence of the room, you can descend to The Keg Steakhouse & Bar for ribs and seafood, along with more stunning views of the waterfall.
Between the heated indoor pool, fitness center, and the whirlpool, there's plenty to do before hitting the hay. In the morning, a full complimentary breakfast buffet with an omelet station awaits. A pair of complimentary shuttle passes will be your ticket to the Falls, casinos, and local attractions.
Niagara Falls: Awe-Inspiring Natural Beauty with Activities for All
Just steps from the Niagara River, the hotel lies in the thick of the city’s tourist district. Wending streets connect art galleries, restaurants, and scores of attractions, including casinos and the Skylon Tower, a giant, needle-like structure with a revolving restaurant overlooking the Falls.
The best way to see the Falls up close is to don a mist-proof poncho and hop aboard one of the Maid of the Mist boats, which leave every 30 minutes from docks on both the Canada and U.S. sides. For a much more tropical experience, head about 9 miles (15 km) up the road to the Niagara Parks Butterfly Conservatory, where thousands of exotic butterflies flit about and land on delighted visitors in an indoor rainforest.
