Four Points Or Sheraton By The Fall?

It's our first time in Niagara Falls and probably the only time. I have both hotels booked and need to decide within the next two days which to choose. Have read both reviews and Four Points seems very bad. I am more towards four points because it's cheaper but if it's that bad I'll pay for Sheraton. Let me know your thoughts!

p/s: i would love to stay near all amenities and four points seems so far away from Clifton Hills. Does anyone know how long would a typical walk take from Four Points to Clifton Hills? Also which hotel is nearer to shops/restaurants etc....

Thank you!

Both hotels have plenty of restaurants and souvenir shops near them, and they are only a 20 minute walk from each other. Four Points is right across from Fallsview Casino which has a small shopping mall and several restaurants. Sheraton is connected to Casino Niagara, is right on Clifton Hill and is closer to the Falls.

Either hotel is going to serve your purpose as far as location.

Sheraton on the falls is the better bet. It's close to everything.

Well, the Sheraton on the Falls is rated #10 and the Sheraton Four Points is rated #36. While everyone has a different point of view, that is a decent margin between the two hotels. However, the Falls location has been reviewed by about 3x as many travelers so you have to take that into account as well.

As far as the locations go, they both have positives to them. It really depends upon which you prefer. The Sheraton Falls is right at the base of Clifton Hill and a quick walk down to the Falls a block below. It also overlooks Oakes Garden Theater which is not rated enough in my opinion. Only 16 reviews? I know the main show is the falls but this park is an oasis itself. It is a beautiful and well manicured park and a nice spot to take a break from the tourist action.

Definitely recommend Sheraton on the Falls. Since it will be your first and only time in Niagara Falls, get the Canadian Falls Corner Suite. Great corner suite, awesome views AND a walkout balcony. As already mentioned, the Sheraton is also in a great location at the base of Clifton Hill.

Here is an older review w/pics from one of our stays at the Sheraton. To avoid confusion, note that the suite is now called the Canadian Falls Corner Suite but at the time of this review that same suite was called the presidential corner...

Sheraton on the Falls is a better choice. Better amenities basically on Clifton Hill. Try to get a corner room very nice rooms to open the door and look down on Clifton Hill and out at the Falls.

Yes to the corner suite, open the balcony doors at night see the lights shining off the Falls and can watch the people walking down Clifton Hill while it's all lit up makes for a good view. Plus watching the Skywheel from your room is nice.

If you don't splurge for the corner suite...try to request a room next to a corner suite...the rooms on that end (the south end I believe it would be) are better angled towards the falls, or so the check in lady told me. You'll still get a great view even if you decide not to splurge.

Hi All

I just want to let you know know that I love love love the Sheraton!! I only realized that I meant Sheraton On The Falls (As Sheraton By The Fall is at the America Side). I am so glad I made the change from Four Points.

We asked about the upgrade during checked-in and the lady told us that the falls view room has a better view than the suite. She said the suite is either 'america falls view' or 'canada falls view' while the falls view room offers both views (is this suite different from the corner suite as you all have mentioned?). Anyway, we chose the falls view room because it is available immediately while we have to wait till the afternoon for the suite (we arrived at around 1030am). We saw more of the America Falls view but were happy with the Canada Falls view though it's further away. And the fireworks at night that we can catch all from the comfort of our room?! Nothing can beat that!

I'll review the hotel after my vacation but I just want to thank you all for the wonderful suggestion! Thank you very much! My partner and myself had a very good time in the falls area :)
