There are a lot of dumpy motels and hotels in the Niagara Falls area. We wanted to stay at a hotel that was a little bit nicer. The Giacomo fit the bill well.
The hotel is quite old, but it's been very well maintined. The interior is fairly modern. Our room was a little bit small and had an odd layout. We actually didn't realize that there was a closet in the room until we were packing up to leave (it looked like a door to an adjoining room). If we used the closet it might not have felt quite so cramped.
The free breakfast was somewhat minimal, but it was great to have it available. The free Internet access worked well.
We had no issues with the valet parking. We were always able to get our car when we needed it, and the staff picked the car up right away when we arrived. I would prefer self parking, but the valet worked well enough.
One of the best aspects of the hotel is its location. The Niagara Falls State Park area is very busy, and it's nice to be able to just walk a block down the street from the hotel to get to the falls.
The only issue was a lack of towel racks in the bathroom. Otherwise, our room was nice and we had a pleasant stay. Thanks to the AAA discount the hotel was price competitive with other hotels in the area and, frankly, much nicer.
