The town of Niagara Falls, NY is a strange place. It's impossible to see either set of falls properly from the US and the lights of Niagara Falls Ontario diminish anything the US can produce. The town feels flat and unloved. The Giacomo is a port in that storm. The decor will not be to everyone's taste but it's bold and makes a change from the stark neutrality of most hotels. The reception staff are friendly and welcoming and went out of their way to accommodate requests. The room was dark, and my only complaints are that the bed was far too big (!), and the room is dark even when all the lights are on. However, there was plenty of storage space and the shower room was lovely.
Breakfast was a buffet. Some have described it as a continental breakfast, but there is hot food available as well, and everything was fresh and tasty.
Having seen the falls from both sides, it's unlikely I'll ever go back to Niagara Falls (on either side of the river), but I enjoyed my stay at the Giacomo and would recommend it.
