Four Points by Sheraton Niagara Falls Fallsview hotel is located within short walking distance of one of North America's natural wonders, the roaring Horseshoe Falls. But the hotel is also directly connected to the area's best manmade attractions, thanks to an indoor walkway that leads to Fallsview Casino. There, visitors find more than 150 gaming tables, 3,000 slots, and scores of video-poker machines, as well as a venue with upcoming shows such as the disco-themed Dancing Queen (October 26–November 11) and comedian George Lopez (January 9–10).
High above all the glitz, Four Points rooms offer unobstructed views of either Horseshoe Falls or the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario. A few steps from the hotel, The Keg Steakhouse & Bar overlooks stunning views from nine floors up. You can use your C$40 credit at The Keg to taste juicy prime rib and sirloin tenderized to perfection by the Toronto Blue Jays’ cleanup hitter. This deal also comes with credits for Outback Steakhouse and Dave & Buster’s—both within a 20-minute walk of the hotel.
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Panoramic Views of the Falls near Vegas-Style Casinos and Water Parks
At Niagara Falls—considered by many to be one of the world’s seven natural wonders—water thunders downward from a height of nearly 200 feet, crashing onto craggy boulders below. The falls straddle the border between 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 at all three of Niagara Falls' brinks: 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 run April through October, depending on the river's ice conditions. Year-round, Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls—board an elevator that descend 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 Hill neighborhood. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
