Chic Hotel Minutes from Niagara Falls
Even as casinos, water parks, and ferris wheels have cropped up around Niagara Falls, the most popular attraction remains the power of nature. Beginning in April, Hornblower cruises ferry raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls, depending on the river's conditions. Located just minutes from Horseshoe Falls, Ramada Plaza Niagara Falls makes a convenient home base for taking in the landmark.
Large picture windows in the hotel’s newly renovated guest rooms showcase views of the landscape. When hunger strikes, you can head downstairs to Don Cherry’s Sports Grill for gourmet pub food, or make use of your $20 dining credit at The Flour Mill Restaurant. Other add-ons include two welcome drinks per stay on your check-in date, wine tastings at Pillitteri Estates Winery and Konzelmann Estate Winery, and a tour at Chocolate FX.
Highlights of Niagara Falls, Ontario
- The Canadian side: The falls straddle the U.S.–Canada border, 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 the photogenic brinks: American, Bridal Veil, and Horseshoe Falls.
- Maid of the Mist: These iconic cruises have ferried raincoat-clad passengers around the base of the falls since 1846. The tours run from April through October, depending on the river’s ice conditions.
- Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls. Board an elevator to descend 150 feet into the bedrock, then stand at an observation deck steps away from the cascading water.
- Fallsview Boulevard in the neon-tinted Clifton Hill neighborhood features glitzy casinos, indoor water parks, restaurants, and Vegas-style kitsch.
