Our party of four adults will visit the Niagara Falls area in late June of this year. I'm looking at which hotels to make reservations (we'll need three rooms) and am getting a bit discouraged. Sounds like any with a falls view are going to be nickle and diming me to death. Everything seems to cost extra even though the room rates alone are pretty expensive. Parking seems particularly costly. Are there any hotels that have a falls view that don't charge $20 + for parking, don't charge extra for wifi, etc. Our budget is not particularly limited (within reason) but just don't want to get ripped off if I don't have to. Any suggestions as to the best deals available would be very much appreciated.
Also – do any of the hotels provide shuttles to the attractions, specifically the maid of the mist boat ride and the cave tour beneath the falls? And, if so, do they charge for them?
