The views of Horseshoe Falls and the American Falls are first rate. But the hotel is dated. The hallways are dingy, torn wallpaper, stained and worn carpet. The room has 20 watt bulbs (OK for romance, I guess, but not too good for reading or packing); bath is tiny, poor lighting, old and rickety fixtures. Heart shaped tub is cute, although it's also the shower stall, which isn't too convenient. Front desk clerk was not especially friendly. My favorite part: towel art featuring two swans. And I hate being nickled and dimed, paying extra for parking ($15 and not too convenient) and Internet ($10). Rates seemed about the same for the new Embassy Suites next door and Embassy Suites (I'm assuming) includes breakfast, parking and Internet. All in all, it's an okay quality room with a fabulous view. But next time, I'll book elsewhere.
