Spacious Rooms Two Blocks from Niagara Falls
Every night, giant spotlights placed behind the Canadian side of Niagara Falls bathe the cascading water in a rainbow of colors. The sight is arresting as well as romantic—one of the top draws for the honeymooners and vacationers who come through here in droves. Just two blocks away from this site stands the Ramada Hotel Niagara Falls Fallsview, set in the tourist district.
From the recently renovated hotel, you can walk over to the falls or take the WeGo citywide transportation system, which stops right out front and travels to nearby attractions. At night, walk to nearby Ruth’s Chris Steak House and use your included dining credit on dishes such as new york strips and lobster tail. Your stay also includes drink tickets, as well as dining credits for Outback Steakhouse and the hotel’s IHOP restaurant. With this Getaway, you’ll get passes for a wine tour for two.
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.
Hornblower cruises ferry raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls from 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 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. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
