Wine & Dine Getaway at AAA Four-Diamond Hotel Overlooking Niagara Falls
As many as eight million visitors a year come to Niagara Falls. The water is certainly a sight to behold, and the AAA four-diamond Marriott Gateway on the Falls has gorgeous views of this natural wonder. But the falls’ commanding presence often means that the Niagara region’s many wineries get overlooked. Winemaking has been a pastime here for 200 years.You can sample the fruits of that labor at many family-owned vineyards near Marriott Gateway on the Falls. As part of this deal, you’ll enjoy tastings and tours at Peller Estates and Trius at Hillebrand wineries. Peller Estates is a family-owned winery which carries on the traditions of its Hungarian-born founder and is known for a signature icewine, while Trius at Hillebrand boasts an award-winning winemaking team that pride themselves on their "hands-on" style.
The Marriott takes full advantage of its majestic views of Niagara Falls wherever possible. There are 32 stories of picture windows overlooking the falls. Fallsview rooms provide close-up peeks of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls and American Falls. Cityview rooms overlook the city of Niagara Falls.
After your winery tour, you can enjoy dinner at the onsite Milestones Grill + Bar. It’s situated on the mezzanine level and has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the falls. Enjoy grilled mediterranean chicken and fire-grilled salmon and sip on signature cocktails such as the popular frozen bellinis topped with sangria. Those who choose the two-day minimum stay also get dining credits at both Terrapin Grille and Skylon Tower. At more than 70 stories above Niagara Falls, Skylon Tower's dining room revolves slowly, allowing guests to take in 360-degree views of the falls as they feast on dishes ranging from filet mignon and tiger shrimp to chicken cordon bleu.
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.
