On the New York side of Niagara Falls, this elegant 67-room sleep is an upscale option in the historic town of Lewiston. Ten minutes from Niagara Falls State Park, the hotel is in a prime location for exploring the natural wonder from vantage points at Prospect Point, the Cave of Winds, Goat Island and more. The guestrooms have street or Niagara River views, and all have King or Queen beds, spacious bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Splurge on a suite for a deep soaking or whirlpool tub, a fireplace and a four-poster bed. The lobby has an ornate, traditional style, from the wood paneling and white columns to the grand piano and centerpiece fireplace. On the first floor, the spa is open six days a week (closed Wednesdays) for body wraps, facials, mani/pedis, massages and more, and the hotel restaurant, Chantry, serves a changing dinner menu throughout the week. After visiting the falls, don’t miss a stroll around petite Lewiston town — the hotel has its own audio walking tour, and the staff can recommend local restaurants and seasonal events, including the Lewiston Jazz Festival and Lewiston Art Festival.
In the Area
Stay local and eat at Water Street Landing, the Silo or Casa Antica, or get a culture hit at the Lewiston Museum or Castellani Art Museum. On the Canadian side of Niagara Falls, don’t miss Clifton Hill, a theme park-like neighborhood filled with family-friendly entertainments such as the 175-foot Niagara Skywheel, the Great Canadian Midway game complex and the Movieland Wax Museum of the Stars.
How to Get There
I loved this hotel, it was a reminder of a historical building. The spa attached is an added bonus. My river view from my room was great. The staff was very helpful and were very attentive to any need I had. Continental breakfast was great, for those who do not travel much a continental breakfast is NOT full breakfast. I heard complaints from other guests about limited selection. It does not have a full breakfast, but completely adequate. The hotel is closely located to restaurants and shops. I will definitely stay here again.
We stayed at this hotel this past weekend. The room was wonderful. We had a king room facing the Niagara River. Although it was only 6 degrees outside, the fireplace in our room kept us very comfortable. Lewiston, NY has several very nice restaurants which made it difficult to choose. The young lady at the front desk helped us with that. We made the decision to go back in a couple of months because we liked the area AND the hotel so much. The breakfast was waffles, pastries, cereals, etc. It was not that great, but really didn't change our mind about the hotel. I think it would help to add some eggs, sausage & potatoes to make a nice (and inexpensive) breakfast buffet...just a suggestion. All-in-all, we are looking forward to going back.
I'd give this hotel a 5* except for the fact that there was no fridge in the room. It's been a long time since we've come across this. Otherwise the room was fantastic. It was large, the bed was comfortable and the fireplace made it cosy. The wifi worked great. The bathroom was also very large and the water had great pressure and was nice and hot.
Check in was easy and the lobby was very nicely laid out with a couple of desks rather than a counter.
Breakfast was great start to the day. It included waffles, baked goods, eggs, yogurt, cereal and fruit. We were certainly satisfied with that.
We had dinner just up the street and had so much food we had to take the leftovers. This is where we needed the fridge but luckily it was so cold out, we were able to leave it in the car overnight.
The location is fantastic. Right on the Niagara River for a beautiful view and it was nice and quiet. Perhaps busier in summer but not on the main drag.
My husband needed to travel to his home town of Lewiston to visit a family member in the hospital. He expected to stay only one night and chose the Niagara Crossing Hotel because of it's proximity to St. Mary's hospital. As if turned out, the family member passed away and the Niagara Crossing became his home for the week. The staff was caring and helpful. We added two more rooms to our stay to accommodate family members. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was excellent. I wish we were there for better circumstances because the views of the river were spectacular. I can only imagine sitting on the balcony and enjoying the river views. Next time, for sure. Thanks to everyone - you were just what we needed.
We had a cozy stay on an otherwise cold and windy night. There's a quaint historic feel to the building that overlooks the Niagara River. Friendly, helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms and a basic continental breakfast that hit the spot. A very short walk to the main drag of Lewiston with lots of eateries and shops to choose from.
It's a great spot for a reasonably priced off-season getaway.
