hotel advice for romantic getaway

Planning a 3-night stay end of July, early August for me and my wife's 10-year anniversary. Just trying to decide between the big 4 hotels…the Sheraton, Hilton, Embassy Suites, and Marriott. I feel like rates are all very similar…and looking at rooms and views it seems very hard to go wrong…which is making it hard for me to make a decision on which one to go with.

Seems like the Embassy Suites is the best value in terms of amount of space for the price paid…plus also appears to include breakfast. But wondering if everything kind of evens out once you add in the cost of parking and wifi?

Any advice on to which is best for couples…or for a more romantic stay? Are the couples or romance packages worth it and do any of the 4 hotels offer better value there over another?

Lastly, is it worth the extra money for the premium view (higher floors)? Think we're leaning towards the premium view anyway…but just curious.

I have never stayed at the Sheraton. Having stayed at the other three several times each I feel that the most romantic is Marriott. That is where I would recommend for a romantic get away. I have gotten good deals with the packages at both the Marriott and Embassy. The Marriott's breakfast is much better than the Embassy. The Embassy is big and crowded and never romantic. I think a good view is worth extra but higher up isn't always a better view for me you see further out but not the falls as well. The Hilton's views are obstructed by the Casino. You can park at the Casino to save money, for free if you gamble and get a card. Have fun.

Parking might also be an issue....it can get pricey quick, just be aware of that...

The Sheraton on the Falls is a great hotel with wonderful views and amenities...........right now they have a great deal on a "Couples Escape" but its good until end June only....not sure if you can change your dates to take advantage of the deal though.............

Thanks for the feedback. My wife's sister also had great things to say about the Sheraton...so I'm leaning that way.

The Sheraton is great but the views are better from the embassy and the marriot as they are located on the escarpment overlooking the horseshoe falls.
