Questions about Niagara trip

Hello

I'm planning on a short trip in June and I'm looking at hotels etc. So I just have a few questions:

What hotels have balconies available? (preferably with river or falls view) Also, what hotel has the best pool?

What would be the best steakhouse in the area?

How far are the wineries from the main hotel district in Niagara?

Thank you in advance for any advice!

Hello Islesfan1,

As far as I know, the only true Falls view hotel that has balconies from which the Falls can be seen is the Sheraton on the Falls on Clifton Hill. Only the corner suites have actual balconies. The balcony is small but still it is nice to be on a balcony overlooking the Falls. Here is a link to our review of the suite. The suite is no longer called the Corner Presidential Suite. It is now called the Canadian Falls Corner Suite. The suite has great views of the American and Canadian Falls. There are also pics attached to our review...

I believe that most of the wineries are along the Niagara Parkway between Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake. That is a distance of around 22km or 13miles.

I'll let the more knowledgable locals give their recommendations for the best steakhouse and wineries.

Enjoy your trip!

There a two other restaurants you might be interested in:

Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse and Brasa Brazilian Steakhouse -

neither is an order a filet from the menu kind of steakhouse, but they are both bring a variety of meat on skewers to your table/saladbuffet experience

(just in case you might want something a little different) that includes beef.....

Hi Islesfan1;

For good steaks and great views, check-out The Keg on the 9th floor of the Embassy Suites Hotel, overlooking the Falls.

Best Regards

Another couple of steak options: Ruth's Chris and Canyon Creek Chophouse.

There are dozens of wineries along the south shore of Lake Ontario (between the lake and the Niagara Escarpment), in Niagara on the Lake, St.Catharines, Jordon, Beamsville. There is no public transportation to these places, so you will need to drive or take a wine tour.

Thanks everyone.

Just a couple more Q's:

Does anyone know if there is somewhere that lists wine events or something like that or wine tour info?

Thank looks exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you!

One last question haha. Is the BW Cairn Croft within walking distance of the casino/falls? I found a good deal on it but wondering how far it might be.

The Cairn Croft is a reasonably priced hotel, but it is a fair hike from the Falls, and the view is less than spectacular, with a strip mall on one side and McDonald's on the other.
