Straddling the border between Canada and the US, Niagara Falls attracts millions of visitors every year. The best place to stay is the Fallsview Tourist Area on the Canadian side, with direct access to the observation towers, souvenir shops, museums, indoor water parks, casinos and theaters that comprise the entertainment side of the falls. These Niagara Falls hotels get you right among it all – and they’re bookable on Culture Trip.
For a convenient stay close to the falls and the Fallsview and Clifton Hill tourist areas, try the 42-story Embassy Hilton. Guests have access to an indoor pool, free breakfast, a fitness center and an on-site restaurant with a view of Horseshoe Falls. The unique, year-round and fully accessible Incline Railway provides an easy link to the Fallsview Tourist Area, with a stunning view of the falls from the gondola. Package deals are available for couples and families, which include tours of Niagara wine country.
Formerly known as the Imperial Hotel, the now fully renovated Vittoria offers a boutique experience combining a view of the falls plus convenient access to the best dining and entertainment in the city. Amenities include an indoor pool, hot tub and fitness center. Parking is available at a lower price than most other hotels in the area, and the restaurant serves a budget-friendly breakfast.
Originally the site of the Niagara Falls Milling Company, this quaint structure, built in 1904, was converted into a hotel in the 1970s and has become a mainstay of Niagara Falls hospitality. Past guests include Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Princess Diana. The inn, which combines old charm with modern elegance, is within walking distance of the entertainment district while offering a retreat from the busy main drag. The Flour Mill serves excellent made-to-order breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with an extensive wine menu inspired by the nearby Niagara wine country. Rooms are pet-friendly, but you will need to pay a fee.
This retro-chic boutique motel, within walking distance of Clifton Hill and the falls, is reminiscent of a 1950s roadside inn, and the Cadillac has been the site of a number of photoshoots, music videos – it’s even been used as a backdrop in movies. Each room features a mural of a Cadillac owned by celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Al Capone, ZZ Top and Elvis. Despite the vintage decor, the rooms are modern and spacious. Unusually for the tourist area, parking is free. Dogs under 25lb (11kg) are allowed, and there’s a yard behind the hotel where they can run around.
Close to all the major tourist attractions of Niagara Falls, but offering a home-away-from-home experience, Stone Boutique Suites is a great B&B-style alternative to the more conventional accommodations in the downtown area. You have access to a garden and barbecue grills, and the four suites at this charming guesthouse each include a kitchenette. Plus, there’s balcony access if you plan a summertime visit. Restaurants and other attractions are a short walk or drive away, and parking is free.
