This is a perfect location to walk to everything, including Canada. It was actually faster to walk over the bridge than to sit in traffic...we did both. We drove the first time to go to Niagara on the Lake, which I highly recommend and does require driving and walked the next time to view the falls and tourist attractions from the other side. We were there over the 4th of July weekend and only drove one time, as it was much easier to walk and not deal with parking. It was great to come back to the room in the late afternoon & rest up a bit before heading back out. If you're a morning walker/runner it's nice to walk out the door and head to the park before all the crowds arrive. There are lots of paved trails around Goat Island and the park, too.
The hotel was very nice with large rooms and amenities. I was quite fond of the chocolates on the pillows in the evening. Loved the big bathroom and wonderful bathrobes. Cool lobby, breakfast room and bar, too. I prefer smaller, unique hotels when traveling for pleasure and was very happy with this choice. Definitely recommend.
