My family and I often travel during the off season. We do this to save money and to avoid the long lines that we face during warm weather travel. My wife recently suggested we go to Niagara Falls during the Thanksgiving break. It was a great idea.
I enjoyed the best night's sleep in over a year at this hotel. The mattress and the comforter were just perfect.
The room was large. In addition to the two queen sized beds in the room, there was a huge window occupying the wall overlooking the falls. Better yet, there was a very comfortable easy chair with an ottoman so that we could gaze out in comfort.
All rooms in this hotel face the falls. This means that all rooms have stunning views.
Our kids enjoyed swimming in the pool. There is an exercise room, but I can't say that I used it.
I enjoyed an evening Scotch at the bar. Nice atmosphere.
My wife and I visited the casino and received (and lost!) $25 on the slot machines very quickly.
We reserved over the internet. When we arrived, we inquired if there were any package deals. It turned out that there was a package deal that was less expensive than the one we had. They were able to switch us over to the package which included two nights stay; breakfast for two days; dinner for two for one night; and $50 of gambling money.
The only bad thing here was the cost of parking a car overnight: $30. For our second night, we parked behind the steakhouse across the street and saved our money.
Meals were pricey in the restaurant, but the service was top notch. The waiters and waitresses quickly introduced themselves and brought us anything that we requested. They were friendly, quick, and efficient. Food always arrived quickly.
I was impressed by the attention to detail in the restaurant. This expressed itself in things like the fashionable plates and soup bowls, as well as the say they presented my salad on the first night.
Consider coming here during the winter. I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
