Charming & well decorated building in a amazing location close to Niagara Falls. You can see the falls & Canada from the uppper lounge due to the impressive proximity. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. Complimentary breakfast is Buffett, not large but very good with more options than expected. Casino, falls, hard rock cafe walking distance, shopping outlets within 5-10 minutes driving.
Cleanliness- rooms need to be vacuumed and dusted better. Ours had spider webs on the curtains & ceilings. Initial construction and drywall subpar with corner mudding and some screws visible. I notice stuff like that and unfortunately bugs me. Some surfaces and furniture need to be wiped/cleaned better. No fresh fruit at breakfast. Hotel was not busy and did not offer to put us on falls side on check in...I forgot to ask when checking in, so thats on me. However, they did remember to ask if I wanted to upgrade the room to a Jacuzzi fireplace suite which I did for an extra $60 per. Not really worth it. The city area surrounding is a lttle less than ok...don't expect ritz outside. At night It doesn't feel dangerous but definitely does not feel safe either. Hotel should have a chauffeur or car service to rectify this. More attention should be payed to cleanliness of the dirty exterior windows as it really does detract from the amazing views. Hvac are newer individual ceiling units that work well but are a little noisy. Room has keurig coffee (i like real coffee fresh ground like mud) but they should have an expresso machine in eating area.
All in all a nice place... just needs some tweaking.
