Stay in an iconic tower looming above Niagara Falls, which offers panoramic views from 27 to 30 stories high; includes a couples package
Hotel at a Glance: The Tower Hotel
There’s really no bad view from inside the Tower Hotel. Built in 1962 in the Fallsview area, it looms more than 500 feet above Horseshoe Falls, the largest of the cascades that compose Niagara Falls. But just as important as its height is the tower’s unique top-heavy structure, whereby only the highest floors can fit the hotel’s accommodations. Because of this, all of its guest rooms—which occupy floors 27 through 30—offer sweeping panoramic views, adding a magnificent and romantic backdrop to guests’ stay.
- Prime location over Niagara Falls: The tower sits just 500 yards from the Falls and overlooks the Horseshoe Falls.
- Close to entertainment: Only a short walk separates the boutique hotel from myriad dining options and the Niagara Fallsview Casino. This deal comes with $25 slot-play credit for Fallsview Casino or Casino Niagara (not valid for 7/1/19–8/31/19 and 9/2/19 stays).
- Romantic perks This Getaway comes with a daily couples package, which features dining vouchers valid at Keg Steakhouse + Bar and IHOP.
- Raise a toast: This offer includes also a free wine tasting or buy-one-get-one-free wine tour for two (not valid for 7/1/19–8/31/19 and 9/2/19 stays).
Niagara Falls, Ontario: Panoramic Views of the Falls near Vegas-Style Casinos and Water Parks
At Niagara Falls, 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, 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 to October, depending on the river’s ice conditions. Year-round, Journey Behind the Falls grants a glimpse behind the curtain of Horseshoe Falls—visitors board an elevator that descends 150 feet into the bedrock, then stand at an observation deck steps from the cascading water. A 10-minute walk from the falls is the neon-lit Clifton Hill neighborhood. Its Fallsview Boulevard has plenty of Vegas-style kitsch, including glitzy casinos and indoor water parks.
