Whether you’re here with family or your significant other, Niagara Ontario has somewhere great to lay your head. Contributor Gina Baksa takes a look at the op luxury hotels in Niagara Falls Canada
A Niagara Falls vacation or romantic weekend getaway is an experience that should be on every discerning traveller’s bucket list. Located on the north-eastern border of Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls actually comprises three breath-taking waterfalls.
The American Falls and the Bridal Falls are on the US side, while the largest, the iconic Horseshoe Falls, is located in the adjacent province of Ontario in Canada. In addition to taking the famous Maid of the Mist boat tour, visitors also have the chance to visit the Niagara Region’s excellent vineyards or take a hike along the historic Bruce trail atop the Nagara Escarpment. Alternatively, there’s adventure of a completely different kind at the Casino Niagara complex and the Fallsview Indoor Waterpark.
To help you choose, here are some of our favourite luxury hotels in Niagara Falls, many of which offer the very best views of these famous waterfalls.
