Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Niagara Falls
Great room and location!
My wife and I enjoyed a getaway at the Courtyard and we both thought the room was fantastic! It was large and open concept with a huge jacuzzi tub in the middle. The hotel is nicely located just a few blocks from the Falls and it is a great value! The only problem was that we were there during March Break and there were kids everywhere.
Some of the them were being a little rowdy in the indoor pool and none of the staff did anything about it. But otherwise, we would definitely stay there again!
Last trip not as good as others
This was our third or fourth stay at the Courtyard. The rooms are still clean and the maid service is good. Parking is up to $8 a day self park in an open lot and the casino shuttle is $9 if you want it. The restaurant has improved but the costs are high in the tavern to the extent we went next door to TGIF.
The check-in counter was less than helpfull, refusing to send an attendant to retrieve a baggage cart both upon check-in and check-out.
I looked myself by stopping at each of ten floors until I found one to use. The room clock did not work and they failed to send my wake-up call, putting me behind schedule. The beds were worn and sunken but fairly firm. I would stay there again, but there are better places if you don't mind driving to the attractions (I do mind).
We dined one night at the Sheraton in the rainbow room. Great view and a wonderfull buffet for $4o PPCAN. Had the Baron cut prime rib at the Beef Baron on Victoria Ave the night before and since I don't eat potatoes and they won't substitute, went away hungry for a bill that ran $70 for two. That included one drink each. The Thousand Island dressing tasted like vinegar and the selection of others was quite limited. Only thing going for it is a great atmosphere. Wife had the veal, plenty of it.
Best trip ever
My husband and I went to Canada the month of Sept. for a week and we saw everything there was to see and it was the best trip ever. The Falls are beautiful I took so many pictures of them. I had hear alot about them but to see them in person was the out of this world. The history behind them it was very inlighting. If anyone ever has the chance to go see them I would say go for it, its a once in a life time experience. The hotel we stayed at was the Marriott,Courtyard and they were the nicest people.
Loved the Courtyard!
We had a wonderful 2 day stay at The Courtyard in Niagara Falls, CANADA at the end of August. The people at the front desk were VERY helpful, especially a young man named Jason. The 2 night package was well worth the money. We took the shuttle both days to the attractions & the Falls. The breakfast buffet was wonderful... the chef will make your eggs any way you ask, and they were excellent. The fresh fruit was really fresh & the selection of foods was very good. I'd skip the dinner at The Keg in the hotel though and use your dinner coupon for $45.00 at one of the other restaurants listed, such as TGI Fridays located next to the hotel. Portions were small & the service was not the speediest at night in The Keg. We asked for extra towels and they left us more than we asked for. Even housekeeping was helpful in telling us what attractions they had seen & liked. One other note, we took the "People-Mover" up & down the main route to all the attractions and it was well worth the $5.50 per day. We loved our stay & are planning on going back soon!!!
Don't use the telephone!
We spent a total of four nights in Niagara Falls in early September of 2003. The first two were at a fallsview hotel that was luxurious but also quite expensive. So we decided to stay our last two nights at the Courtyard. It is a very reasonable hotel with great meal packages and clean comfortable rooms(ours was a huge suite with a fireplace and jacuzzi!). The location is great and while we were told that there would be a fee for parking, we were never charged one. The only complaint I have about our two nights at The Courtyard is the ridiculous rate they charge for long distance calls. We phoned home to check messages once each day and upon checking out we noticed that EACH CALL was over $20 CAD! I complained to the front desk and we were told that "we don't have Sprint or anything....". All in all a good hotel but if we ever stay there again, the phone will remain hung up.
Try it... You'll like it....!!
Eventhough the Hilton is our very favourite hotel in Niagara, we decided to make reservations back in July to give the Marriott Courtyard a try for our regular monthly two night package (Aug 27-29) visit. I was extremely impressed with Melissa at the front desk who was very friendly, courteous and patient . You see, we arrived very early but she took the time and made every effort to find the requested King / Jacuzzi room on the specified floor and in the location we had requested .This meant we wouldn't have to come back 2-3 hours later and that we could get on with our day... . She was great... thanks again Melissa !! The Room was very clean, large and everything we had expected. All meals in the Kegg downstairs were very good . Yes, you still have to pay for parking ($8.00/day) but at least the lot is very big and not a block or two down the road. However, I did miss the falls view and the ambience of the Hilton.... Nevertheless, it was a great 2 days at this hotel and would I recommend it to anyone.......
The hotel is new, clean and comfortable. The location is close to the falls, casino and downtown. All are within walking distance. The only problems that I had with this hotel is the hidden prices and overpricing. I was charged $26 for a long distance phone call which was 7 minutes long. Upon receiving my bill at checkout, there was a 'marketing levy tax' for $13, and also a parking charge of $8. All these charges were not discussed at the time of check-in. Be very wary of the constant 'overcharging' in Niagara Falls. Denny's is across the street from this hotel. A meal that would normally cost $6 is $12 in Niagara Falls. Buyer Beware of everything!
A Great Choice All Around
This hotel is very clean and reasonable. The rooms are very nice, a decent size, good beds,and Jacuzzi is big. We stayed on the 10th floor and had a wonderful veiw. Not a bad walk to Clifton Hill, Skylon Tower and Denny's is right across the street. Two very nice pools, small laundry room, game room and exercise room. Parking is $5 American and $8 Canadian, no longer free. If you pay American cash you get a VERY GOOD exchange rate. The kids loved it. Everyone was pleasant and helpful.
We had booked our standard room via the internet about a month prior to our visit. Upon checking in, the clerk offered to upgrade us to a mini-suite, complete with whirpool tub, and fireplace on the top floor of the hotel. The increase was only $20 Canadian, which worked out to be around #14 US. It was less expensive than a room at the Super 8 Motel in Mass.
On my first travel to Niagara Falls, I wanted the whole Niagara experience, so I stayed at the Marriott Fallsview and stayed in a wonderful, but very expensive room with a view of the falls. On my second travel to the falls, I chose the Courtyard Marriott. No, it didn't have a view of the falls, or a spa but the price was excellent!!! On your walks around Niagara you will take in the falls so much that I'm sure you won't miss them when you lay your head down to sleep. As a graduate student, the Courtyard Marriott fit my needs perfectly. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. And, they have a great two- day stay package, which includes 2 buffet breakfasts which are very delicious, and a voucher amount good towards 1 dinner. The staff was extremely nice also. I hope this helps anyone wanting to travel to Niagara Falls. Have a great trip!

Very sad to leave Washington DC this morning. We barely scratched the surface. Flew out of Ronald Reagan Airport. Much closer than Dulles Airport in Virginia that we had flown into 4 days ago.
As we flew north, the snow on the ground thickened and we thought it might be a bit chilly, even snowy, at Buffalo, but no, it thinned before we landed and blue skies and sun prevailed.
Peter is like a native when driving, ...
... them and get to know Paul and
the kids- we feel part of the family now and just hope that it won’t be another
20 year before we see them again. Hopefully
we’ll be able to show them around Cornwall very soon.
There was time for a final bit of site-seeing before our
flight, so we drove to Niagara to the biggest waterfall of the trip so
far. Nick and I have seen the falls
before (back in the day ...
... it resembles a ghost town by comparison with what I was about to encounter. When you see even a KFC with "closed down" on boards nailed across the door, you know something's gone wrong! (Or right, depending on how you feel about fast food chains...) I had my first glimpse of the horseshoe falls as we crossed the rainbow bridge, at the end of which is the border crossing into Canada. As it was dark by now, they were lit by blue, pink and purple lights, and even ...
... the Falls" adventure, where you go down these tunnels they've drilled to go behind the falls, and peek out at the thundering water, just a few feet away. There's a short video of this below. Overall, the Canadian side was much cleaner and more updated than the American side...although the parking was $20!
After buying a lot of maple candy and souvenirs with maple leafs on them, and taking our pictures with a giant stuffed moose and bear, we crossed back to the US side ...
... Food was delicious, and more than enough to fill us all. After dinner we took a drive along the Niagara Parkway and looked at the falls from yet another perspective. Here's what we noticed, the American Falls are lit in red, white and blue, while the Horseshoe Falls are lit in a variety of colors. And the mist was just as bad, or worse, at night as it is in the daytime.
Heading for bed now, tomorrow is the big day! Donna will turn 60!
