Refuse to pay the local tourist tax -- You don't have to pay it!!
We came into Niagara via bus from Toronto and checked that the hotel was 4km away and offered no pick up service. Taxi to the hotel was $15.00 which we thought was steep.
Check in was quick and easy and was given a room on the 10th floor and when we looked out of the window we could see both the casino and the falls. As a SPG member used to be put on a SPG floor but perhaps 4 points does not offer this? Only one free bottle of water in the room and the room was for 2 people.
Room was fine but nothing special - Pool was nice but cold and the gym looked good but did not use.
We had the Ruth Chris offer but only used it for one of the two nights - See my review of Ruth Chris.
If we could do this again I would have stayed in a Hampton Inn with a comp breakast as the vouchers really had no use to them.More
