We stayed at the Giacomo from June 6-8 2012. The hotel is beautiful and charming. The people that work there are friendly and polite. The free breakfast is actually pretty good. There's hot food (scrambled eggs, sausage and bacon), made on the spot waffles, some pastries, yogurt and fruit.

The rooms are good and decorated well. It's very dark so hard to tell if it's clean or not. The bathroom is very modern, but the shower has really poor water pressure and also didn't have hot water if you shower at busy times when everyone else is showering. The grout in the shower is black and mildewy. I am a clean freak, so the cleanliness of a bathroom dictates how a rate a place. The underrim of the sink is also covered in black mold. I'm sure normal people won't even notice, but I purposely look for these things to see how well they clean.

We didn't receive cookies in the room like many of the guest did. The valet parking was a nice touch. But the valet person is the same person behind the desk. But that is to be expected in a small hotel.

Oh and the viewing lounge on the top floor, really is just an area with windows and some tables and chairs. Nothing special.

Will I stay there again. Yah probably. But only because I think that's the best they have on the US side of niagara.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 602, poor water pressure, dirty shower.

We stayed at the Giacomo just about a month ago in a King room. From the moment we arrived to check in I was blown away. I've never stayed on the American side of the falls before and this was totally worth it. The hotel itself is beautifully decorated and the rooms were super chic and very very clean. The beds were SO comfortable! They offered free parking in a secure lot across the street from the hotel and you have free in and out privileges. The best part of all was the hotel staff. They were absolutely amazing from the first greeting until the last goodbye. The shuttle service was a great added bonus as well and the staff are more then willing to drive you at any point. The hotel is in close proximity to the falls and is across the road from the Seneca Casino as well. You can walk almost anywhere in the falls area from the hotel. The cookies were amazing in the morning too lol. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel or it's staff at all. If I choose to stay on the American side, this is where I'll be going hands down. It's just too bad this hotel wasn't on the Canadian side of the falls where all the better tourist attractions and casinos are or I'd visit it more often. (this however has no reflection on the hotel itself). ENJOY!

We are a family of 2 adults 2 young kids and had a 3-nights stay over at Giacomo last month. It was a very beautiful hotel and our stay was definitely well-worth the price paid for.

Good points:
- Free and convenient parking
- The staff are generally friendly.
- Love the location as it is located really near to Niagara Falls. About 5 to 10 minutes walk away.
- Beautiful decor
- Very clean toilets
- The beds are very comfortable.
- The waffle at breakfast is a must-try. Freshly made. Very crispy.

Some minor imperfections as follows:
- The rooms are very dark at night. The only light source suitable for reading was the tiny table lamp on the table. There are also many dark corners in the room. Nice ambience but would be good if they can install more lights.
- The blankets were reused as there was a strong perfume scent and covered with countless tiny fine hairs. We called housekeeping and they got it changed promptly.

Regardless of these minor shortcomings, we strongly recommend this hotel.

The hotel is located at an excellent location, it's a short walk to the Goat Island, Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Wind, and also to Canada. We parked the car at the hotel and just walked.

The hotel staffs were very helpful and friendly.

I highly recommend spending time walking around Goat Island and definitely take the Maid of the Mist boat tour. It was quite an experience!

Room Tip: Our room has a king bed, a comfort chair and ottoman, a desk, and a fire place. It was warm in May, so we did not need to use the fire place. The air conditioner and fan was a bit loud depending on whether you are a light sleeper or not.

We loved The Giacomo. The decor throughout the hotel was beautiful. We especially liked our room, the bed was very comfortable and it was superbly furnished. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. The view of the Falls from the lookout at the top was great. The bar was fantastic and even had a solo guitarist on the Friday night we stayed (who we loved enough to buy his CD). Complimentary breakfast was a nice touch also, especially going through to 10:30am for late risers. Warm cookies delivered to our room before bedtime, free computer usage (a bonus as we didn't bring our laptop), free town car to drive you within 5 mile radius of hotel. Easy walk to casino where there are plenty of places to eat, close to Falls. You can see the hotel for miles so it is very easy to navigate your way back. There's even a casual restaurant right next door if you want to go somewhere quick for dinner when you arrive. We definitely received value for money and I would thoroughly recommend The Giacomo to fellow travellers.

Room Tip: We were in a non-smoking room on level 4
