Straddling the border between Canada and the US, Niagara Falls attracts millions of visitors every year. The best place to stay is one of the many hotels in 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. Here is our selection.

    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.
