High-Rise Hotel One Block from Horseshoe Falls
Four Points by Sheraton Niagara Falls Fallsview hotel is located within short walking distance of one of North America's natural wonders, the roaring Horseshoe Falls. But the hotel is also directly connected to one of the area's best manmade attractions, thanks to an indoor walkway that leads to Fallsview Casino. There, visitors find more than 150 gaming tables, 3,000 slots, and an array of video-poker machines, as well as a music venue, where upcoming shows include rockers Matchbox Twenty (February 19–20) and Hank Williams Jr. (March 19).
High above all the glitz, Four Points rooms offer unobstructed views of either Horseshoe Falls or the city of Niagara Falls, Ontario.
Ruth's Chris Steak House, located right on the property, has recently opened and serves up its signature premium-cut steaks. For Italian fare, stop by East Side Mario's, also located inside the hotel. In the morning, you can enjoy breakfast fare at IHOP, which is open 24 hours on Fridays and Saturdays. The hotel also has a Starbucks onsite.
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.
The iconic Maid of the Mist has 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. 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, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.
