Choosing Where to Stay in Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is a popular destination, one that many of us have visited before. But deciding where to stay in Niagara Falls can drastically change your experience. Whether you want to spend time enjoying your hotel’s amenities or your hotel is just a place to lay your head, it’s one of the most important parts of planning your trip.
Choosing the right hotel for your needs will come down to a few deciding factors, some of which may be out of your control. However one of the most critical of these factors is location.
If you’re looking to spend some time on Clifton Hill or at the Falls themselves during your stay, then you may find parking a challenge. Choosing a hotel that is centrally located will mean that you can leave your car at the hotel, as well as your parking woes.
On the other hand, if you wanted to do some outlet shopping, tour local museums, and historical sites, or spend time in Niagara-on-the-Lake, then you’ll need your car to get from point A to point B. Being at a hotel with easy to access onsite parking, and that is easy to get back to ( let the Skylon Tower be your guide) will make your short jaunts easily manageable.
With that in mind, if you’re staying in the Clifton Hill and Falls area then map out the attractions you want to see and try to find a hotel within walking distance. Although some hotels offer shuttle service to some of the top sights and city destinations, like the Falls and the Casinos, not everyone wants to wait around for a shuttle.
A hotel with a shuttle service is not always the best option – this can be especially true for parents with young children. If you have very young kids then you’ll find loading strollers, wagons and all your gear for the day onto the shuttle is a real hassle. Eliminate this problem by choosing a hotel that is centrally located so you can take what you need for the morning and then easily walk back to the hotel to change the kids and get them ready for the afternoon.
Consider The Holiday Inn
The Holiday Inn’s centrality means that you are always close to the excitement. The Falls, restaurants, and shopping are all within walking distance and Fallsview Casino is just next door. Being so close to these attractions makes the Holiday Inn a great option for families, couples, friends and especially first-time visitors. Being right in the middle of it all means that newcomers will never have to worry about missing anything that Niagara Falls has to offer.
The Holiday Inn also provides a plethora of relaxing amenities like complimentary WiFi and newspapers as well as indoor and outdoor pools, a Nordic spa whirlpool and a fitness centre.
So when deciding where to stay in Niagara Falls consider what kind of experience you’d like and look for a hotel that has an ideal location and is within budget.
