Overall very nice would come back again The lines at the check in and check out service
Even we stayed only two nights it was worthed every penny. View at waterfall was amazing. Room was big, clean and very comfortable Elevators where only thing that was annoying..... Either was to long line or you have to miss out rides because it was full. (Maybe because it was Labor Day weekend and hotel was packed) Parking wasn't free and it was little bit pricey ($30 + ~20% taxes).
advertised a whirlpool tub and a view of the casino got a back room butted up against the elevator pick another hotel
Location and that it was attached to galleria and casino We called prior to make sure we booked a whirlpool room. Lady who answered said it would not be a problem as most rooms are whirlpool rooms. When we arrived to check in, the man started "Oh no, you paid close to half off so you don't get a whirlpool room. Only guests paying full price has this option." We decided not to fuss and just to use the hot tub in the spa for relaxation but it looked as though someone had really bad diarrhea in the hot tub. So needless to say, we had no hot tub relaxation. If you want good service and to feel like you matter, be sure to pay the outrageous full price or stay elsewhere!
The Italian Restaurant was not good
Very nice hotel. Great location. Staff was very friendly and even upgraded our room for free.
The location was excellent giving easy access to the Casino and the Falls. Plenty of good restaurants near by, easy access to our wine tour that we scheduled. Our first room was extremely small, had stains on the towels, one stain on the bed, fruit flies, and gum on the recycle bin. I went down to speak to one of the front desk agents to complain with pictures of the evidence. The agent gave me another room key to an " upgraded room". When my finance and I arrived at the next room on the 7th floor, I quickly realised that it was a handicap room. My fiance was not impressed, nor was I. We both took a quick look around and found the floors in the bathroom very greasy and found a few hairs in the bathtub. Also, I noticed the duvet cover was two sheets rather than a sealed duvet cover; I am not sure if this is customary at the Hilton.. I would not stay at this location again due to the reasons mentioned above, not to mention it was approaching $600 for 2 nights..
Bathroom was not very clean.
Room was clean, quiet all night, view for city view was lovely. For having so many floors the elevators were always quite quick. Front desk service was great: we had a misunderstanding upon check in that was a little frustrating but once the staff realized their small error they were extremely apologetic and always polite. Location was great. Room was dark only one bedside lamp. No overhead lights and no light in shower, and shower head leaked leaving it with bad water pressure. We tried to relax after a busy day and watch tv for an hour, our tv had 2 channels. The rest said no information on the menu and we were not interested in the two channels we could use. The parking situation was horrible. We used self park outside and the attendant was not there when we reached the rooftop parking. We struggled with a suitcase to find how to check in and enter the hotel. The pool looked lovely but we tried to swim at 8:30 on Friday night and a male employee was rather rude telling us the pool was closed. The sign posted for hours said pool open until 11pm.
Perfect location and very comfortable room. Great breakfast buffet. The yawn in the middle of the Managers welcome voice mail and the pair of someone else's socks found in the bathroom under the vanity.
The room was extremely clean and comfortable. I was literally in awe from the sparkling bathroom floors! ( not one mark, hair, or streak) bedding and pillows were calling for us! My girls even commented and trust me they are Teens and super hard to impress let alone give a compliment. The maintenance call was handled quickly and effectively. The gentleman apologized for the interruption and easily fixed the shower drain backup. Most unprofessional staff We have encountered at a Hilton. We stay at them often and love the superior rooms and service. But after a long evening with our girls walking and enjoying the falls attractions Amd sites. Dropping almost $ 700 ln the room to start off to have to be charged for WIFI for the one person extra and to be told that we cannot enjoy the complimentary breakfast or attraction packages (even though we are paying the exact same price as the ones who qualify) and then to be insulted by offering us $3.00 off an iMax show (wow no thanks) super disappointed in the lack of effort and quite frankly rude and curt tone. Calling me dear while my title is Dr. That is petty and really didn't bother me too much just mentioned as a sidebar. Also I am a HIlton Honors member but I husband booked online and forgot to include the member #. Which they told us we cannot earn the points for this stay.... Why???? Idk
always take great pride in staying there. overall, the experience never disappoints. front desk staff is always incredibly helpful. I was discouraged by valet. when we were leaving I must have had 6 or 7 bags in my hand and as the valet driver got out of my car, I even made a point of telling him to give me a second for me a give him a tip. he just walked off to some other conversation he was having previously with someone else and didn't help me with my bags at all. I tipped him anyway, even though I shouldn't have.
Very Very VERY comfy beds and right in the middle of the upper falls activities. If you want to do something away from Clifton Hills it is a great place. Restaurants in the building, arcade in the basement and a walkway to the Casino across the street $18 to $25 for parking was not mentioned in the pricing and of for that additional cost we could have stayed at the Sheraton down the road with a view of the falls. Not a bargain at all.
The room was awesome and had a great view of the falls Don't have any smoking rooms also didn't have completely bubbles for the juckuzy
Beds were very comfortable No fridge in the room
Room was okay. I couldn't find the value for money here. The overall layout of the rooms was confusing. Several different elevators that were poorly signed to get to a specific area in the hotel. It was very apparent as other guests were just as confused. When I went back to clarify which elevator I needed the front desk person was clearly agitated by my confusion.
Easy access to anything and cleanliness
Good location and staff No breakfast Wifi doesn't work in the room
Easy access to casino. Good location for sightseeing and activities. No refrigerator in room. $20 a night for a fridge is dumb.
Looks great inside and out. Location is perfect. Price is good for the value . Staff is polite and we'll put together. Definitely would recommend it to anyone Pool shouldn't close that early . The hot tub also. They close at 11pm. The elevator a need to be repaired and reprogrammed so they move more efficiently .
Value Location Comfort Cleanliness Elevators - insufficient number Crowded
have to pay for parking
Self parking wasn't near and soap wasn't full
Nice view from window ! Clean and convenient Haven't find one to dislike
The hotel was chaotic but the rooms were very large and clean and incredible value
Centrally located, clean, modern We have a premium room with fantastic view of the falls. Room is big but the floor plan is lousy so the usage is somewhat awkward. The worst thing is that we have a huge bathroom but partitioned into several sections and the shower ended up to be like a small cubby hole.
Excellent location close to the falls Very friendly staff Very clean modern hotel Good included breakfast Long waits for elevators, especially at breakfast and evening Cost of valet parking - should have self park option. It also should be advertised better. Poor selection of reception snacks compared with other Embassy Suites - shouldn't advertise.
Not bad just not great breakfast was diner quality not what I expected
Nice views and spacious rooms. Good breakfast buffet Parking too high to take a shuttle to get too
View was good, beds were comfortable , location also very convienent. It's easy to get to the horseshoe fall via incline railways The worst part of the hotel is the staff. They don't give you options they are always up selling even when not interested. Parking situation is the worst. They said it's $35 per night and it ended up being $123 for two nights because they didn't disclose the tax for me. 10% tourism tax is mandatory only at this hotel and its voluntary everywhere else. Scam artists! My original receipt showed $277 and final receipt at check out showed $647 The only things I added are parking $35/night , $50/upgrade to junior suite and that's it ! This is the worst hotel in niagra
The view was amazing! The room was gigantic, the hot tub awesome, the massage chair incredible. The room very roomy. The breakfast was so crowded and a mess!! We hot there early but it is no joke if you dont make it to breakfast before 8am expect a long 45 min wait to be seated. We got there early and had a good view of falls but by 830 it was crowded by the time we left it was packed a long 45 min wait line outside to get into restaurant. First thing they do is they give you a slip that shows the times breakfast is not crowded go early.
things were changed without notification,like the managers reception was over by5.15p.m which was normally till 6.30. the morning manager was a rude person
The suite was a excellent choice for us as it gave our party of four room to spread out. The room was clean. The breakfast was good, but go down before 9 AM to avoid the crowd. The location is great as the entrance to the Falls' Visitor Center is right below the hotel. We are planning a trip back in the Fall and plan to stay here again. It is a little pricey, but I feel you are paying for the view plus location which is worth it.
Spacious room Nice breakfast Didn't like that there is no tunnel or bridge to get directly to casino Pool way too cold (especially for small kids) Valet area too crowded for drop off or pick up Only able to use 1 door for entering or exiting premises Starbucks way too expensive at the location
Amazing view of the falls. I didn't know Kayak would charge for us to use their service.
Very well run hotel with beautiful rooms, incredible views, and easy access to town. Big crowds by parking valet, but this is to be expected during summer visits.
Free breakfast at the Applebee's next door. View of the falls was phenomenal from a fallsview room. We were on the 13th floor. I felt like we could have fallen out the window and into the falls. Staff was polite and helpful. Parking was an extra charge, not included in booking. It was another $20 Canadian.
One of the only things that this hotel had in its "pros" column was the closeness to Niagara Falls, and the fact that we were able to check in 2 hours early. Where do I begin? Once we checked in in the chlorine-scented lobby, we loaded our luggage in the elevator to head to our room. Because the hotel only has one spot for guest elevators, we spent the next 4-5 minutes walking the long and winding hallways to locate our room. Once in our room, we noticed the strange set up for the bathroom: toilet and shower/tub in a closed room, sink exposed in the main living area shielded only by a small wall. Moving into the bed/living room, our "view of the Niagara" was awfully green; apparently the trees hadn't been trimmed in a while. We called to the front desk to see if we could switch rooms. While the staff member was friendly, he informed us that because we booked a room with 2 double beds, he could do nothing for our concerning our "view." Since we drove 6+ hours to see Niagara Falls, we needed a place to park our vehicle while we explored. Fortunately, the hotel has a good sized parking lot that they allow guests to utilize...for a small fee of $25 per day. My next trip to Niagara, I will most likely splurge and book one of the nicer hotels neighboring Oak Hotel.
If your room is on the higher floors, the view of the Horseshoe Falls is fantastic. Parking is expensive.
Location Parking costs extra. Lobby had a ceiling leak as we checked in. Room was a mess - no fridge, shower pressure was bad, lamp didn't work, even the room number was a paper with the number written on it. Staff wasn't friendly. Only thing good about this place is the location
Decent. Was ok until elevator was out of order. Only has 2 elevators. One was out and we people had to wait up to 30 min to get in the only working elevator.
The hotel is nice and clean. The view overlooking the falls is absolutely amazing. Breakfast was served at Applebies next door, no options and not very good.
walking distance to city amenities and the Falls a plus. The view from the room was amazing. Entrance lovely. The costs were exorbitant for off season, middle of the week. The room should have had a micro wave, fridge, luggage rack for that money. Parking fee was ridiculous ($25) and a surprise for an outdoor parking space. We were given someone else's parking card initially. Armchair seat cushion in room sagged. Why is there paper on the hallway windows? Stairwells were dirty and crude. A continental breakfast should be included for that cost. The room had a tired,dated appearance in contrast to the main entrance.
View. Since there were no leaves on trees yet, the view of the falls was good. No refrigerator in room, no microwave, additional fee for parking, then no room in hotel lot to park. Ice machines only on odd floors of hotel. Staff unresponsive to concerns. Tourist trap, nothing included, everything required an 'upgrade'. Obviously not looking for repeat business.
The only good thing was you were close to lots of fun stuff in Niagara Falls and could "kind of" see the falls from your window. (4th level) They "upgraded" us in a room with a king sized bed that was actually a double bed made up for one adult. We had to call down twice for extra pillows. They actually put us in a wheelchair accessible room 421 with no tub, grab bars everywhere, and a chair in the shower. The water gets everywhere in the bathroom because there is no lip to keep the water in when we put the white towel on the floor to stop the water it turned black underneath from??? Dirty floors. There is no fan in the bathroom to remove the steam so when you shower it gets really hot and hard to breathe. Then, after you run the water there is this terrible rattling sound in the wall the pipes make. The dresser drawers are broken and hazards and never stay shut. When this was brought to the attention of staff upon checkout they basically apologized and said that "well we upgraded you, we would have put you on ground level outside in the motel next door with booking.com" because we only paid $265 for the night.. Who knew that the shitty motel next door to the hotel was actually a part of the hotel. It looks like somewhere you go to get murdered not a place you spend $300 bucks to stay. I suggest save your money and go somewhere else. Would only be worth it to spend maybe $50 but parking in itself is $25.
I only liked the location 1. Be aware that this hotel has motel like section with doors open to the outside. 2. Also, house keeping was banging on the door and window at 9am with the DO NOT DISTURBE sign on the door. 3. The beds they had in the room were full size not queen.
The location to the falls and walking distance to our favorite restaurants is fantastic. The staff was friendly and efficient. It appears there was a old two story hotel and the added the high rise later. We stayed in the out dated part of the hotel. The room smelled musty and old. It was a disappointing experience.
The view, pool and spa. Had to go outdoors to get to breakfast (with hotel voucher)- the staff at the restaurant wasn't very friendly to foreigners. Parking was quite a walk for a solo mom with luggage and a 5 year old in the dark. For a newly renovated hotel, it shouldn't have patches in wall paper and flimsy bedding. It is over-rated. Paying for location.
It was close to the falls Breakfast is gross and there was a prostitute on meth making racial jokes about the poor housekeeping staff to their faces. No staff to be seen but when we checked in the chick at the desk tried to hose us for parking fees before I HAD TO ASK HER HOW MUCH IT WAS. That's a tacky trick and 12 bucks for parking is a damn joke. Would stay again for only less than $40 otherwise move on
Staff very friendly and accomodating. They were able to switch us from the first floor to a room with a balcony. Breakfast was good, the only thing is that they did not have fresh fruit. Location was also very good - within walking distance to the falls and restaurants.
Queens bed too small
Location, room, free breakfast - very crowded but it was free. We had to sit with another couple but learned about Canada - with out the crowds we would have sat by ourselves and not had that wonderful conversation! Nothing
I did not like the fact that we had to walk outside to get to our room. The front desk is located in a diffent building that was not accessible without walking outside.
Crowded breakfast. Hot hallways. Bad room location.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The front desk gave us a room apparently with a toilet that was a little rocky and by the time we got up to our room the maid had already had staff fixing it. The room was small but very clean. It was also within walking distance of the falls and most of the other sites in Niagara Falls. Very reasonably priced. The hotel stay comes with free breakfast which is very nice. It's served from 6-9am, but if you don't get there by 7:30 or so, the room breakfast is served in is too full and there is a line out the door. Other than that, nothing to complain about.
Great location. Nice room for the price. Breakfast room is cramped and limited food choices. Air conditioner unit a bit noisy.
Was close to the falls. Place was very run down and in needing of repairs. Pool was broken. Staff who checked us in wasn't friendly and seemed annoyed with his job.
Staff very helpful/courteous
Close to the falls; easy walk. Free breakfast Excellent service and friendly staff Comfortable rooms The water did not work in the morning during our stay and it seemed to be out for the whole building. This was obviously a fluke, and they reimbursed our parking charge for the inconvenience, but it did adversely affect our stay.
I liked that it was close to everything, to include the falls. There was refrig or microwave in the room, a bit of a downer.
Fancy clear glass sink bowl impressed my daughter for a while. We were in the courtyard, able to park right outside our room, for free- which is rare in Niagra Falls. Friday night stay for about a third of the price of Embassy Suites where we had just left after two nights because their pool was closed too. I was also sick of valet, nice to have your vehicle right outside. Pool was closed. Not happy about that since that's why we stayed there. But the arranged it so a 2 min walk next door to the Holiday Inn got us in to their pool instead.
Nice basic breakfast. Room was clean and staff was friendly. Very good location. No frig. The rest was good.
Can't beat the location. Just up the hill from the falls. We had a little balcony that overlooked the American Falls. Small but workable bathroom. Comfy and clean beds, good WiFi. Free parking and in walking distance to many attractions. AC was loud but worked well. Decent free breakfast. All in all a very good value.
My sister and I booked via kayak but chose to upgrade to a room with a view upon arrival -offered to us for only an additional $50 CAD per night. What we were given exceed our expectations as we were placed on the renovated 7th floor in a corner room with an unobstructed view of the American falls through our open window and a view of the city streets below from our balcony. The faux wood floors in the room were fabulous as were the chandelier and comfy king size bed. The room was also very quiet and we were not disturbed by elevator or neighboring room noises at all. Breakfast was hot and basic, but free and you really can't ask for more- eggs, sausage, toast and coffee are all i need anyway! Free parking was wonderful as most hotels in the area charge and we felt our car was safe. Location was perfect- only a 5 minute walk down the hill to the falls and a 2 minute walk up the hill to the rest of the tourist district on Clifton Hill. (Do yourself a favor and visit the Niagara Brewery while you're here-you won't regret it!) All of the staff was wonderful and accommodating to our needs. Overall, we loved the space and look forward to returning to our beautiful room with the rest of our family! The only downside was that, although the wifi is complimentary, it truly is only strong on the lower levels. We had (non reported) issues both days of our stay and as americans relying solely on wifi connections to stay in touch with family, it would have been a bigger problem had we stayed more days. Please also be aware that the hotel is divided up into a shorter two story section, with a motel facade and a tall 7 story section, with a regular hotel feel, where the rooms with views are located on the higher floors. Make sure you know what you're getting! Lastly, not an issue for us, but this hotel is located on a VERY steep hill which may be an issue for the elderly or those who need assistance walking.
Beds.were comfortable but room was small. Was ok as we were there to sightsee not stay in our room. Disappointed in the breakfast no variety and out of a lot of items also was expecting a hotel not a motel with outside doors.
the pool was nice, and so was the rooms. the distance to the falls was perfect. The front desk workers were very helpful giving advice on local place to eat and attractions. the rooms had plenty of outlets for charging for all of my devices, and the rooms were very well kept with new towels every day and a very modern design to the room that give it a feeling of a much larger more expensive hotel. the rooms did not have a mini fridge or a microwave so any leftovers we brought home from restaurants went bad. More over the AC unit in the room was broken and our room always got way to hot at night. Also the breakfast was lackluster, with eggs that were graying and over cooked sausage, cereal that was stale.
Right in the middle of everything. Could walk to the falls, or casino or to shops, or restaurants. Bus stops were within a block of the hotel. The breakfast was not spectacular, but was good and it was included with the stay so can't really complain. It was well maintained and clean. Staff was extremely nice and courteous and friendly. There isn't anything that I could complain about. It was easy to get to, had plenty of parking and was no fuss check-in/check-out. Pool area was clean. Hot tub in pool area worked. Clientele was a little noisy on Friday night after the fireworks, but they were silent at midnight at the latest. And even then, they were not horribly loud, as putting the TV or radio on low would have drowned them out.
Manager was extremely helpful, good location and enough for one night at Niagara. It was just a stoppover for me but would appeal to quite a few of the above categories for stoppovers in Niagara. Different from the usual tourist hotels
This hotel was really cool. If you like a place with a bit of history go here! We stayed in a king suite and it was really nice. Very clean and modern, not what we expected after viewing this rustic, heritage hotel. Location is great also. For the price we paid It would have been nice if there was at least a continental breakfast included.
The rooms were very confortable and surprisingly high end considering the price. Only one of my rooms was reserved whereas I had booked 2 on line. This was easily rectified but still concerning. The receptionist who checked us in was helpful and courteous but seemed mournful and unhappy in his work.
billing error at checkout needed help from ip to resolve
clean and comfort room and washroom no breakfast included within price
We loved this hotel and the staff. Price was appropriate for the dates we stayed. The location is fantastic, within walking distance to many locations, and short drive to the wineries. Clean, comfortable rooms with a unique combination of rustic history with modern amenities. The bar was good and the courtyard entertainment was a nice bonus. I will agree the restaurant is overpriced and seems like it is laking an identity. But overall a hidden gem in the Niagara Falls area.
Common areas were beautiful (ie. lobby, restaurant). Location is about a 15-20 minute walk to the falls, and is close to quote a few restaurants. Rooms were a bit outdated, but comfortable. Hallway near elevator and pool was very humid.
The hotel had a unique feel to it that gave it beauty. The rooms were not your generic, cookie cutter hotel rooms and neither were the grounds. We could hear our neighbors next door fairly clearly, and they were not being rude or speaking too loudly. The restaurant was overpriced for the quality and the advertising of the restaurant (for instance the ad in the elevator for the main restaurant showing Small Plates available when they are only available in the Lounge). Kayak lists them as having room service and we were told this was not true, but if they were "not busy" they could run us up a plate if we asked - from the overpriced restaurant menu only. The "lounge" and "bar" are neither - they serve alcohol and have a few chairs set around coffee tables where you can sit in the "lounge." The wifi is advertised as high speed, but it is far from it. We were lucky when we had signal, so I'm glad that it was free. And if hearing the neighbors wasn't enough, we looked out onto a night club whose music was clearly heard through closed windows while the TV was on. Although they do offer TV, most of the channels were fuzzy despite perfect weather. We chose to leave early as this was not the relaxing anniversary weekend we had planned.
Historic setting, nice rooms, good food, freindly staff.
The rooms were clean and comfortable. The restaurant was extraordinary for potatoe and leek soup, scallop salad and crab salad. Next time we'll check the supper service as well. I phoned the night before we left to say we'd be leaving the side door at 0700 and the desk did not mention that a singnature would be required. However, in the am the desk person came to our suite for me to sign-thank you. The hot tub was not very warm, the water was low, and 2 pieces of clothing were left lying around. Towels piled up on the top of the laundry bag. Computer was not working.
Window did not open in room. Everyone ignored the fact that the TV was broken. I've machine not working. Cleaning staff was over zealous about getting a tip. Overall would not recommend the hotel. Overpriced for what it was and service very below average
We had to listen to the obnoxious neighbors talking all night because th walls are paper thin. The rear side of the hotel is a large ugly lot with access to a very unimpressive side of the building. When we first arrived, I was not impressed until we fit to the front desk. Lobby is very nice abs restaurant is FABTASTIC but make a reservation.
The location and free parking made this hotel very appealing. The hotel felt dingy. The hallways are old and dark. When we first got to our room the tv and 4 separate lights didn't work. Apparently housekeeping likes to unplug everything (we were told this is a known issue and apparently one that has not been addressed). Not a huge deal, but any decent hotel would make sure everything was perfect by the time guests arrive. In addition the room didn't feel clean. There were a few pills on our floor and a small stain on the sheets. The sink also looked grimey. Free parking is great, but there was garbage EVeRYWHERE. Overall it just seemed like their wasn't much pride in whoever makes the decisions at the Holiday Inn. The staff was very kind and helpful, but whoever is making the big decisions needs to invest some $ into the place and clean it up a bit. After one night we cancelled the rest of our reservation and stayed at the Hilton in a studio suite with a view of the falls for the SAME PRICE!
Everything the room service is only for the breakfast and not the rest of the day
The location is perfect. You are by a lot of great restaurants and walking distance from the falls.
The price, included free parking, and staff were all very nice. The hotel seemed to be within walking distance of everything, including the falls. It was also right next to Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville. We got assigned a room that had vending machines directly outside of our room. We couldn't hear people but what was a bummer was that the extra space that was taken out of our room for the vending area was compensated by taking room from our balcony. This made it very small. Enjoyable none the less.
The staff was very helpful & friendly! We were able to gets parking pass even though we arrived early! The room was quite nice! Could hear crying baby next door- maybe because of thin walls or the connecting doors? Also, although the ice machine owe to our room was convenient, it was also noisy late at night. Happily the baby didn't cry long and we were so tired it may not have mattered much anyway!
Bed Heart Shaped Jacuzzi No outlets No ventilation in bathroom. Not very romantic to smell partner s business. Have to turn on each lamp - no central switches No fridge
We came with two kids under 5. This hotel was reasonable walking distance to the falls with free parking, had clean rooms and a large pool. The breakfast was not included however, and was rather pricey, even with the kids' breakfasts more or less free. I say more or less because the kids menu was restricted and you still have to pay tax on it. Speaking of tax, there is a hidden tourism tax on the room and food which the hotel did not mention. A family member told us about it after our stay. This tax is optional and you can ask for it to be removed--but only if you know it's there in the first place!
We had a perfect stay with a clean quiet room within a short walking distance to all the Niagara Falls sights.
convenient location mattress is so old and uncomfortable
