My review of this hotel is very mixed. Let me start by saying the view from our 17th floor room was absolutely wonderful! We could not have asked for a better view. You were able to see both the Canadian and American falls perfectly. We were able to watch the fireworks on Friday night from our room with no obstructions.... More

Stayed here for one night with wife and daughter. Easy to get to the hotel from Buffalo by Taxi (US$85). The hotel is fully automated with barely any staff. All those who manned the service desk were veey pleasant and most helpful. we arrived past midnight. For some reason my credir card had got declined and my booking was cancelled.... More

My husband and I have had 2 experiences at Oakes Hotel. Our first was in 2008 where we booked a room and to say it was unsatisfactory would be an understatement. We were in it for 5 mins and had to leave...there was a strange odour, it was dirty and run down. We travel quite frequently and stay at many... More

Awesome Location. We stayed 2 nights in August 2015. Very, very nice rooms. Great Location. Staff was OK. My one major recommendation would be to specifically book a falls view room when you reserve. If not, it is so disappointing to get there and then not have a good view of the falls, which is just below the hotel. They... More

I would have to say the view from our Falls-view room up on the 16th floor was simply spectacular. The room has a nice table seating right in front of our multiple window falls view room that we loved to enjoy a glass of wine in front of taking in the incredible spectacle and view. We enjoyed multiple rainbows, mother... More

My colleague, who is a senior citizen, requested me to book this hotel for his anniversary. After watching a recent Marketplace program about an extra fee that many establishments in Niagara falls add to your bill, it was explained that if you request this fee to be removed, it will be. It's a voluntary fee. When making the booking the... More

The view from our suite was spectacular, and the room was clean. Having a suite, we expected a lot more. No refrigerator in the room, we had to spend an additional $10. per night to have it in our room. I would have expect that at the exhorbitant rates they charge we would have been at least provided with glasses... More
