1. Sheraton on the Falls
Sheraton on the Falls is in Ontario on the Canadian side of the falls and has 669 first-class hotel accommodations featuring the Sheraton Signature Bed, designed to help you get a restful night of blissful sleep.
The Canadian Sheraton is currently much better than the Sheraton on the American side. The American Sheraton feels old, and the service is not great, with one report of expired food in the club lounge. The Canadian Sheraton is more looked after and is your best Marriott Bonvoy choice by the Niagara Falls.
Choose from a variety of room views and comforts, including floor-to-ceiling windows in Fallsview Rooms, plus City and Garden View rooms that will leave you breathless. Note: This hotel also charges a resort fee.
Sheraton on the Falls has a small executive club lounge on the 5th floor with breakfast and evening snacks. Breakfast includes rather overcooked scrambled eggs, bacon, boiled eggs, cut fruit, yogurts, fruit bowl, juices, pastries, and cakes. Enough to fill you up, but nothing of great quality.
During the day, you can enjoy complimentary tea, coffee, bottled water, assorted juice, cappuccinos, and sodas, along with snacks like nuts, chips, and granola bars, all free of charge. Head to the lounge in the late afternoon for hor d’ouvres. Evening snacks are two basic hot items, cold cuts of turkey breast, salami and cheese cubes, pickles, two nice cakes, and beer or wine for a fee. It is worth mentioning that the US Sheraton has free wine and beer in their club lounge, but it doesn’t feel as luxurious.
The Sheraton Club Lounge has one of the best views in the hotel. Besides the gorgeous garden and falls view, the lounge overlooks the Oakes Garden Theatre, a historic site including a central amphitheater.
This hotel is probably the best hotel pick at Niagara Falls. Still, there isn’t much Marriott Bonvoy recognition here, even though it is well located with all the amenities you could want. It also has a water park, which is great fun.
2. Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa
The Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa is right on the falls on the Canadian side, about 90 meters away from the edge of the falls. Unlike the Hilton outlined below, nothing is blocking the view from the rooms at this, plus the rooms are nicer than many of the hotels in the area. The front desk appears to be run much better at the Marriott than, for example, the Hilton.
If you go to their website homepage, there is a really cool visual of the hotel with the falls behind, showcasing how close you are to the magnificent Niagara Falls. They say, “The best view in Niagara Falls Guaranteed”. The result is that this is the best Marriott hotel close to the falls, plus it has a Starbucks in the lobby, which is a bonus.
They say that Marriott Fallsview Niagara Falls Hotel & Spa is the closest hotel to Niagara Falls and is the area’s premier AAA Four Diamond, a five-star luxury hotel in Niagara Falls. But there have been mixed reviews in 2018 about the hotel being dirty and the staff not being particularly helpful, so manage your expectations.
432 Fallsview guest rooms enjoy an exceptional view overlooking one of nature’s wonders. Wake up to the sight of the falls, and drift to sleep, mesmerized by its beauty. Rooms here have been recently renovated and are luxurious, with sleek modern layouts and sweeping views of Niagara Falls. Each of the redesigned rooms is appointed with Marriott Signature Mattresses & Bedding, new HD flat-screen TVs, beautiful bathrooms, and comfortable sitting areas to provide world-class accommodation experiences in beautiful Niagara Falls.
Eat at Morton’s Grille, which offers incredible Fallsview dining at Canada’s only Morton’s Grille restaurant. With a dining room overlooking the magnificent Niagara Falls and an impressive menu of succulent steaks, fresh seafood, burgers, and more, Morton’s Grille Niagara Falls is a one-of-a-kind dining destination.
The club lounge here is not great. Breakfast in the morning is ok, but evening appetizers are poor, bags of crisps, and not enough food for a full dinner, not even close. The service is fine, but it’s worth noting that this club lounge is closed on weekends and holidays (New Years Day, Easter, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, Boxing Day).
When the lounge is closed, guests who have booked rooms with club lounge access and those who get complimentary lounge entry because of their elite Marriott Bonvoy status get a full breakfast buffet for two.
This Marriott actually arranges tours to the falls for guests. Magnificent Tours offers personalized private tours and thoughtfully crafted signature tours to connect you with the natural beauty, exceptional entertainment, and premium wineries of the world-famous Niagara Region.
Park at the Fallsview Casino parking garage for cheaper parking. It usually costs $5 USD or $10 USD (but sometimes more) to leave your car, just a 5-minute walk to the hotel.
3. Marriott On The Falls
Marriott on the Falls is your other Marriott Bonvoy hotel option in Niagara on the Canadian side. It is across the street (further) from the falls than the Marriott above, but both hotels are within 100 yards of each other. If you want a better chance of a Fallsview room, go for the Marriott in our number 2 spot.
Again Marriott On The Falls has a club lounge that is closed on weekends and holidays (New Years Day, Easter, Victoria Day, Canada Day, Labour Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day, Boxing Day).
When the lounge is closed, guests who have booked rooms with club lounge access and those who get complimentary lounge entry because of their elite Marriott Bonvoy status get a full breakfast buffet for two, along with afternoon munchies.
4. Sheraton at the Falls
Sheraton at the Falls is on the US Side and is in NY state. It is not as good as the Canadian Sheraton above, in our opinion, particularly for service, but has comfy Sheraton beds.
Sheraton Niagara Falls is Niagara Falls, NY’s one-stop-shop, offering 392 guestrooms, a Starbucks and a TGI Fridays, and The Reef Beach Club & Pool, which is ideal for families who can stay in the Family Suites accommodating up to nine guests. Or, revel in a romantic retreat in the honeymoon capital of the world by relaxing in one of our state-of-the-art hot tubs and be pampered by the indulgence of a gourmet in-room dining experience with a bottle of wine. There is also a 24-hour fitness center, business center, and a variety of on-site dining options to help complete your getaway.
Sheraton Niagara Falls is ranked in the Top 10 Sheraton meeting facilities in North America and believes that effortless travel includes the planning of your meeting, reunion, group event, or wedding.
The executive club lounge breakfast is decent if un noteworthy with fresh fruit and mediocre patisseries and yogurts along with steel-cut oatmeal, cereals, hard-boiled eggs, assorted juice, coffee, and cappuccinos from an Espresso machine. Throughout the day, you get fresh whole fruit, assorted nuts, chips, granola bars, assorted sodas, Bottled water, assorted juice, coffee, cappuccinos, and tea. Cocktail hour in the early evening and is reasonable with cold cuts of cheese, ham, crisps, salsa, and one hot item like bacon-wrapped scallops. They have free wine and beer during the evening hours.
5. Radisson Hotel & Suites Fallsview
While there are hotels closer to the Canadian Falls than the Radisson Hotel & Suites Fallsview, the views are fairly similar from all the hotels, particularly on the higher floors, so this hotel can be a cheaper and better value choice.
The club lounge is above the lobby. You get a decent light breakfast with pancakes, pastries, boiled eggs, yogurt, oats, tea, coffee, juice, and fruit, then afternoon snacks which include cheese, olives, crackers, cold cut meats, a fruit platter, cakes and pastries, fruit, tea, coffee, fizzy drinks, and water. The staff are decent, too, making this another option you might want to consider when looking for a hotel with a club lounge at Niagara falls.
6. Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites
Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites is right on the falls and your best Hilton Honours redemption or earning option at Niagara.
With rooms overlooking both the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls and directly connected to Fallsview Casino Resort, Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites is a decent Niagara Falls getaway destination. This full-service hotel features a breakfast buffet, nightlife lounges, and three signature restaurants in the heart of Niagara’s entertainment district.
Hilton Niagara Falls offers various room options, including rooms equipped with Jacuzzi tubs, flat-screen TVs, and fireplaces, but it does not have a club lounge. Golds and Diamonds should get the complimentary breakfast buffet in the main floor buffet restaurant or up at the Watermark on the 33rd floor of the South Tower and two bottles of water per day in the room.
The breakfast buffet queues can be very long, but there are good choices with hot dishes, meats, potatoes, waffles, bread and muffins, and very good apple cinnamon muffins. The chef makes hot egg dishes, including omelets. If you are not an HHonors Gold or Diamond, the cost is $19.99 USD per person at the main restaurant or $24.99 USD per person at Watermark.
To get to the road beside the falls, you need to take the Incline Railway for an $11 USD return from this hotel. Otherwise, it is a long walk, uphill on the return. There is also a nightly fireworks display at 10:00 pm in the summer, which can be seen from the Watermark Restaurant.
The Four Points by Sheraton Niagara Falls Fallsview is a pretty unattractive 70’s hotel from the outside and has no executive club lounge, so this isn’t a great hotel choice at the Niagara Falls. It is also NOT at Niagara Falls, but it is cheap.
There is also a Hyatt Place for World Of Hyatt members but again with no club lounge. There is also a Crowne Plaza by the Niagara Falls but there is no club lounge at this Crowne Plaza either, plus there are some Courtyards by Marriott but again with no club lounges.
None of the hotels on Niagara falls is massively luxurious. Unless you absolutely need to, these chain properties are not great. Consider staying in Toronto as there are some brilliant executive club lounges in Toronto and we have also listed the best hotels to stay in Toronto on points and miles. You could also stay at Niagara-on-the-Lake or even in the countryside at a winery. All these options are so much nicer, and you still get most or all of the Niagara Falls experience with a day trip.
