“This is a new boutique hotel very reasonably priced on the American side of the falls.”
Reviewed February 4, 2010

Very new. Very personal service. Very friendly, Probably an adult hotel, but so attentive and kind to our children. It was exceedingly clean for a refurbished building. Accomodations were all well thought out. Upscale decorating. We were in a King with jacuzzi which had a very spacious bath. They accept AAA, etc, so ask for a better room rate. It is off season too, but for our family, the falls in winter, the State Park, all iced up is just as beautiful as ever. Continental breakfast included was more than appropriate with fresh fruit, eggs, etc. Great restaurants on the American side, or go over to Canada for entertainment. There is an interior observation deck on the 18th floor. A much less expensive and more upscale location. Try this boutique hotel if you have not had the experience before.

New to Niagara Falls, the Giacomo was more than a pleasant surprise, it was a delightful experience. This is an office building transformed into a boutique hotel, with each room being its own unique experience. The staff was extremely accommodating and made you feel like you were a personal guest at their home. The accommodations were first class. This is truly a hidden gem and a welcome addition to the Niagara Region. Your visit to Niagara Falls would not be complete without a least a stop in to this hotel. Truly a unique and pleasant experience.

My fiance' and I had a nice little weekend getaway this weekend to the falls. We initially planed to stay at the Seneca Niagara casino (which is the nicest in the are) but came across the Giacomo via internet. We were BEYOND impressed with the decor, very helpful staff and size of our room. We had the jacuzzi/fireplace suite. Very romantic and tasteful.

We have already made our reservations for Valentines weekend. We love the Giacomo!

I had the pleasure of staying at the Giacomo this month on business. Mr. Oliver and his team are warm and welcoming. I felt as though I had made a long journey back to a familiar place and had a chance to spend some time with old friends.

My room was spacious, immaculate and extremely comfortable. I can't image someone having a need that the Giacomo couldn't meet.

Even though I was there on business, when I left the Giacomo I felt revitalized physically and spiritually, much like the building itself. I look forward to my next stay at the Giacomo.

The New York side of Niagara Falls is not the most cosmopolitan of places -- more like a blend of touristy and seedy. One notable exception is "The Giacomo" hotel, just a few blocks from the falls, in an elegant 1920's era art deco former office tower. Inside, the long-abandoned building has been renovated and restored to plush, boutique glory -- call it "soft contemporary". Loft-style but without the minimalism and hard lines.

Surrounding the hotel are much less impressive cheap low-rise buildings (it is directly adjacent to a Days Inn), and you'll need to use their (free) valet service to park in the gated lot. But at least you'll be in the nicest building on the block, if not all of Niagara Falls.

Excellent hotel. Revamped an old building in an excellent place to stay. Close to the Falls and close to the Casino. Great location. The staff is amazing, willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy.
