I've read all the reviews and most of the posts and I think I have too much info now! My friend and I are coming to NF May 28 & 29 (sun,mon), a holiday in the States, so I imagine it will be pretty busy that week. Please help me make a hotel decision. Our priorities are as follows: (1) Falls view room as it our first time (2) Close proximity to casino and Falls as my friend will be 6 mos pregnant, we are trying to limit our long distance walking (3)$$ we don't want to go overboard on the hotel room, somewhere in the $300-$400 u.s. for the weekend. Also are the "packages" really worth the extra money, we don't plan on any "fancy" dinners, we would like to have dinner near a window to see the Falls at nite though. So what I have "narrowed" it down to is the Hilton, Embassy, Marriot, Renaissance. Oh one more thing, I have found that booking directly with the hotel (online) has been cheaper than the discount sites (Orbitz, etc), do you find this to be true? I am also concerned about cancellation policy due to my friends pregnancy, plans do change! Thank you in advance!
