This sprawling, 525-room hotel is 42 stories high and located in bustling Niagara Falls, Ontario — just 100 yards from the river’s edge. The suites, while simple, contain two rooms with burgundy fabrics and blond wood accents, as well as spacious baths (some have jetted tubs), two flat-screen TVs and views of the famous falls that will make you want to stay right by the window. Other on-site amenities include an indoor pool, hot tubs, an outdoor sun deck, a fitness room, a lounge and a business center. The elegant Keg steakhouse and bar offers falls-view dining and an array of perfectly prepared meats such as sirloin with house teriyaki sauce and prime rib with Alaskan king crab.
In the Area
The Canadian side of Niagara Falls is overflowing with outrageous tourist attractions. The center of it all is 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. Tour packages are offered through Embassy Suites that include boat cruises and a “journey behind the falls,” as well as visits to local wineries. For nightlife, families can check out the Oh Canada Eh? dinner show, or adults can head to the Fallsview Casino, just a five-minute walk from the hotel, and the Club Seven nightclub, also within walking distance.
How to Get There
We chose the Embassy because it was our first time to Niagara Falls and the room was suite style which gave us more room for our family. We really wanted to make sure we had a view of the falls too so we paid extra and got a higher floor. It did not disappoint! Amazing views!! It was literally across the street from the falls and all the action too. Great location. Only thing that I didn't like was the nickel and dime things we got charged...Breakfast was not entirely free, they charge 25.00 a day for more than 2 adults (and they check with tickets every morning). My 20 year old was the 25.00 extra each day. The parking each day was high too, $45.00 US dollars. Plus, the city charges a 10% total tourist tax charge for the entire stay. That was a shocker when we checked out! But I know that was not the hotel's fault.
Overall, we had an amazing time. The room was clean and hotel staff very helpful. They even gave us free passes to the local transportation buses that got us to all the attraction stops which saved us some money. But, don't waste your time and money at the Kegler restaurant in the Embassy. It was very expensive and the fireworks from there were very disappointing. Better to see the fireworks just by stepping outside or from your own room. I would overall go back and stay there again. We had a very memorable vacation.
The hotel was clean and the view is amazing, but the internet is NOT free. They nickel and time you everywhere. If you want internet it is $16.95 a night or you get a package that is $40 a night. Tripadvisor should take that down. Completely false.
As a USA resident I found booking a hotel on the Canadian side of the Falls gave the best view. I stayed at this location with grandchildren and the view was spectacular. The rates were reasonable and the accommodations perfect. We were within walking distance to the "under the falls" tour and to reasonably priced restaurants. Book early as the rooms go quickly. Ask for a "Falls view room".
We stayed here for 3 nights in early May with our 2 year old daughter. The room was VERY large and worked perfect to have her in the "office" side with door divider while we watched movies in bedroom. Large bathroom with tub, helpful for toddler. The hotel is very large and we stayed on one of the top floors, great views! The location cannot be beat as it is on top of the horshoe falls and the incline is connected to the hotel for easy access to everything. We were still able to drive to other attractions, like Maid of Mist, Butterfly Conservancy and Niagara on the Lake (highly recommend!). The only slight issue was valet and parking, but we were well versed in this before hand. It is pricey, but we found it very convenient and found that we never waited for our car. Was nice to have complimentary happy hour at the hotel bar and everyone was VERY friendly! Great stay, would definitely recommend.
After doing lots of research, we decided to book embassy suites. Check in and out
was fairly easy and straight forward.
Our room was brilliant. The best part of the room was the view, as we were able to see the illuminations from our room whilst lying in bed. The pictures do not do justice to the view you can get from the room. It was very large and spacious, we did not end up using half of our room. The bathroom was nice and clean, with all of the standard toiletries.
We did not make use of all the features of the hotel, as we spent more time exploring the local area. We did use the swimming pool and that was fine.
We had breakfast at the restaurant, which was an okay breakfast. You can pay extra to be right by the window and get falls view and some nice pictures.
There were additional costs that were not made clear when the booking was made online; however there were perks to this, as it meant we got better wifi, discount to many local restaurants (iHop, TGis etc) and free bus pass for 48 hours in the local area. The bus pass meant that we did not have to spend any money on taxis or commuting, as the buses went to all of the main tourist places.
Would overall recommend this hotel to couples and families.
