We stayed here over the weekend of June -17-19. We were in town for a marathon in Niagara-on-the-lake. My husband is a Marriotts rewards member so we always stay at Marriotts. We were able to check in early and I was hoping for a free upgrade, which we get from time to time. However, they had booked us in a city view (which is what I booked). At the last minute we decided to upgrade to a Falls View for $40 more a night. We were on the 29th floor. When my husband and my two kids walked into the room we all exclaimed "wow" at the same time. The view is so breathtaking! It was so worth the extra cost. We were able to watch the fireworks Fri night right outside the window.
The room was nice. I was glad there was a refridgerator in the room because we had brought a cooler full of drinks. The room was nicely decorated, bed was comfortable, and plenty of room in the bathroom. There was also plenty of drawer space for unpacking. We also used the pool and hot tub. Since we had upgraded, they also gave us shuttle passes. It is a bit of a walk to Clifton Hill, so they have a shuttle that runs twice an hour. It costs to park downtown, so the shuttle passes saved us a bit of money. We used the shuttle 2 times and had no problem. In general, the food in Niagara, especially around Clifton Hill, is very expensive. We spent $68 at IHOP for 2 adult breakfasts and 2 kids meal. UGH. I noticed too late that drinks (ice tea and milk) were $3.99 each. However, the suveniors seems priced ok. The drive to Niagara on the Lake is a must. Driving along the river and looking at the beautiful houses was very enjoyable. If we had more time, we would have loved to have rented bikes and went on the beautiful paths by the river.
Great weekend trip and a great place to stay!
