This is a full service hotel. We had embarked on a waterfall/Fall Foliage trip across NY State, ending our journey here, so after virtually living out of our vehicle for a week, it was a little embarrassing handing over our keys to the valet. That was inconvenient, too, as we ended up having to call for our vehicle a few times just to get stuff we'd forgotten (umbrella, for instance). And they charge you $20.00 per day for the valet parking. Our room was upgraded from the 6th floor to the 15th floor with a fireplace and jacuzzi. The view was spectacular, even tho when we pulled back the curtain I was startled to find the window washer cleaning the window of the room next door, but it was a good laugh. The bathroom was large and very nice, but the jacuzzi, with doors that open to the room do not quite have a view of the falls. The jets were a bit lame, too. The bed was perfect to sink into with down comforter and pillows especially after the week we'd had, but not a bed I could live in for much longer than the two days as it is too soft. Our first day we had perfect weather and had gotten to do the Maid of the Mist and the walk up the American Falls, at US prices before crossing over the border. Our second day it was very rainy and my husband was in the throes of a full blown headcold, so we hit the Butterfly Conservatory before going back to bed. This area is crazy expensive with a 16% tax on everything, so finding him affordable chicken noodle soup was a challenge and room service was positively cost prohibitive. A bottle of water in the room would be about $6.50, then add 16% to that. The All You Can Eat Breakfast Buffet for $6.99 pp somehow ended up costing us $23.00 (across the street), but I did score some soup at Quiznos when Appleby's had "run out." The staff were all pleasant. If you want to walk along the waterfront, I would suggest walking downhill via Murray Street and paying the fee (I think they charged us $5.00 pp) to take the tram back up. We made the mistake of paying the tram downwards and walking back up. The waterfront walk is beautiful. From our room looking down, the park and waterfront is so perfectly and immaculately manicured, that it almost doesn't look real. It reminded us of a miniatrure trainset, minus the train. We didn't have a problem with the hotel (but for the valet) accommodations, but the cost for everything else felt exploitive--not just at the hotel, but in the area in general. Since my husband was sick, we didn't "splurge" for any fancy dinners or spa or nightlife which we would have liked to do, but I think we were secretly relieved to have spared ourselves the expense in the end. We forgot to bring our bathing suits, too. The pool was very nice and looked very clean. The walks and views were more than sufficient, as well as the drive down Niagara Parkway. If you want to experience the Falls, do what you can on the American side where it's less expensive. You might want to eat on the US side, too, if you can. I can't imagine what the expense would be to gamble in the nearby casinos, but its likely obscene and I'm grateful we're not into that as a form of entertainment. Be sure to wake up with the sunrise, tho, for a spectacular sight which was far more impressive than the illumination of the falls at night. The short firework display was nice, tho.
