Modern Hotel Overlooking Niagara Falls

The Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls has front-row seats to one of nature’s grandest spectacles. Located in the heart of the Fallsview tourist area, it’s the closest hotel in Canada to Niagara Falls. Guests are also within walking distance of local attractions such as the adjacent Fallsview Casino Resort, home to a Vegas-style theater, shopping arcades, and lively gaming areas. With this getaway, you'll receive a $25 voucher to use at the casino.

You don’t even have to leave the hotel for stunning views. The glass-and-steel tower features an observation lounge on the 14th floor where you’ll find floor-to-ceiling windows and five enclaves furnished with chairs and couches. Each two-queen falls-side room also boasts full or partial views of the Niagara River and the crest of Horseshoe Falls.

In addition to the Fallsview Casino voucher, you’ll get a breakfast for two and a $30 dining credit that you can use at Remington’s of Niagara, a casual fine-dining steak house and seafood restaurant that features singing servers and a collection of Remington sculptures, located about a mile away. Served in an intimate dining room, entrees range from new york strip steaks to stuffed chicken breast. A complimentary shuttle from the hotel to the restaurant is available nightly.

This package also includes a two-person wine tasting at three local vineyards, such as Trius Winery, Jackson-Triggs, Peller Estates Winery, or Inniskillin, along with a tour at Chocolate FX.

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, indoor water parks, restaurants, and soggy Elvis impersonators.

Customer Reviews

The view! Great from the 8th floor-- especially in winter when there are no leaves on the trees. Saved us having to spend much time down by the falls in this cold cold winter, and we still got to enjoy seeing it!
Sarah R. · March 3, 2014
Had a great view of both Falls from the 13th floor. Room furnishings had been updated, shower plus whirlpool. Staff was courteous and helpful. Lots of coupons to use at related restaurants(and food/service was good at both).
