Lavish Hotel with Rooftop Restaurant Overlooking Niagara Falls
Every day, about 200 billion liters of water surge over the brink of Canada's Horseshoe Falls, the largest of Niagara’s three waterfalls. However impressive, statistics fail to capture the full power of the falls. At ground level, there's a thunderous roar, and a massive cloud of mist rises high above the brink. But from a higher vantage point at the Hilton Hotel and Suites Niagara Falls/Fallsview, you can see the entire waterfall crashing in silent fury.
Each of the hotel's guest rooms feature expansive views of the city or the crashing waterfalls, but the view from the 33rd-floor Watermark Restaurant is arguably the best in town. Between bites of prime rib or roast rack of lamb, you can gaze down on Horseshoe Falls and fathom the province's astronomical water bill.
A glass walkway connects the hotel to the Fallsview Casino, where you can try your luck at 150 gaming tables and 3,000 slot machines. The casino's Avalon Ballroom has played host to major acts including Ringo Starr, Jay Leno, and Diana Ross; check out upcoming performers here. For a more mellow experience, take a half-hour drive north to Peller Estates, where you can tour the family-owned vineyards, sample Canadian wine, and tie grape stems with your tongue.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Legendary Waterfalls and Family Attractions
Niagara Falls, Ontario, rests on the province's southeastern tip with the Niagara River and the Canadian Falls creating a natural boundary between Canada and the United States. For an up-close view, visit Journey Behind the Falls, where elevators descend 150 feet into the bedrock. From there, you can stand on a ledge carved out of the rock and view the falls from a stunning prospective—directly behind the falls.
Apart from the natural attractions, Niagara Falls offers plenty of entertainment in the way of casinos, water parks, and amusement parks. Less than five minutes from the hotel, the glitzy promenade Clifton Hill boasts a wide an array of popular attractions including an indoor water park, a celebrity wax museum, and a Ferris wheel overlooking Niagara Falls.
