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
We visited this property for a three night stay. We stayed in Lewiston before but the bed and breakfast we had stayed in closed. The Niagara Crossings looked nice so we decided to give it a try.
The hotel is at the end of a quiet street and overlooks the Niagra River. We visited Niagra Falls and Fort Niagra during our stay; both within 15 minutes.
The hotel is quiet and clean. We had a large room with a king size bed and large bathroom/shower. Our room had a river view which was quite lovely. Breakfast was a disappointment but we did enjoy the 24 hour coffee set-up.
We plan to visit Lewiston again and will stay at this property
This is a gem of a hotel, especially for people who need a break from lovely chain hotels that are great in quality but look the same and don’t have quite the charm that independent hotels do.
I was a little concerned before coming that I was off the “reliable” chain of hotels but so glad that I did. We had a big, beautiful room & a modern fireplace & air control. Beautifully decorated with a lot of charm.
Just next to the river. Can’t recommend enough. Wish I had had enough time to use the spa - maybe next time!
Loved the hotel! Nicely situated near restaurants, shops and highways. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are helpful and friendly. We had many spa treatments and loved them all. Katie and Wendy are outstanding!
We would highly recommend this hotel and spa
We had a great stay at this hotel over the summer. Not only was the hotel itself adorable and quiet with spacious rooms, but the location was outstanding. If you are looking to stay close to the falls, but avoid all the touristy shops and knick-knack stores, this hotel is perfect for you. Lewiston was a very cute town with great shops and restaurants. The hotel's entrance is just a 2 minute walk from a great restaurant right along the water. It's a beautiful place to spend time. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant was great, and we enjoyed the cute, spacious room designs. Stay here, you will not regret it!
Lovely hotel, nice distance to the falls but set in a small historic town - can be a destination of its own! Walk to the little downtown area or down to the water for sunset, we really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was lovely too!
