Hotel with Indoor Courtyard, Heated Pool, and Restaurants near Horseshoe Falls
Every second, more than 600,000 gallons of water tumble over the brink of Horseshoe Falls. Just a 10-minute drive away, you’ll find Best Western Plus Cairn Croft Hotel, a 2012 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence winner. Providing a laid-back contrast to Niagara’s nearby entertainment district, the hotel has a sunlit indoor courtyard where lush foliage, tropical fish, and recliners surround a heated pool. With this deal, you’ll get to taste award-winning wines at Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Pillitteri Estates Winery, tour the facilities at Chocolate FX, and enjoy two Irish coffees at Doc Magilligan's Restaurant & Irish Pub, located at the hotel.
For a cocktail or snacks, visit the Bourbon Street Bistro in the courtyard. The hotel is also close to the shopping and restaurants on Lundy's Lane. After spending some time in the courtyard’s two whirlpool tubs, retire to a standard room with one or two plush-top queen beds. Amenities include an iPod docking station and a TV with free music and movie stations.
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 all three of Niagara Falls' photogenic brinks: American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls.
Year-round, Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls—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 Hill neighborhood. Here, Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
