Where to Stay
There are plenty of hotels within walking distance to the falls. The Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotel is located directly next to the Rainbow Bridge as you cross into Canada from America. You will actually see it on your left as you cross the border.
The hotel is older, and the rooms are simple and small but adequate. However, the hotel has a lot of charm, with an elegant staircase and chandelier in the lobby, and the staff was friendly and accommodating.
There are also a few perks included in your resort fee, including discounts at the attached indoor waterpark, beer tasting for two at Niagara Falls Brewery, a family picture at Hershey, and two passes for the WeGo shuttle that takes you to the tourist attractions. You can also book a room with a view of the falls, which is especially great on weekends when they light off fireworks over the American Falls.
