Hotel at a Glance: Sheraton On The Falls
When it comes to Niagara Falls, it’s hard to improve on what nature created. Instead, all 22 stories of Sheraton On The Falls blend into this natural surrounding, giving guests unobstructed views of the crashing water. Restaurants, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and many of the guest rooms look out onto the water. Beyond the falls itself, the hotel has direct access to attractions including a three-acre indoor water park and a casino with 1,700 slot machines, where you can use an included casino voucher.

- Sippable extras: Stays include two cocktails at the Hard Rock Cafe, and the hotel pours local wines during Social Hour each night from 6–7 p.m.
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.
