This had been the best hotel so far! The view from our room was just amazing. So many bad write up about this hotel we loved every moment here. In fact we were very sorry to have to leave. The staff were ever so helpful. I cannot fault it one bit! Keep up the good work guys.

Historical Traveler Reviews DoubleTree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton - Niagara Falls
Incredible hotel, incredibly hospitable staff!! ~*~ Aug 28-30, 2004
My husband and I, and our three children stayed at this fine hotel for three nights in August. It was wonderful! ...Conveniently located, easy parking, stylish yet comfortable lobby. Reservations and check-in were handled smoothly and efficiently, and our room was superb, overlooking the falls. Since it had opened only 2 months ago, everything was fresh, sparkling clean and new. We stayed in an executive suite, with a sofabed upon entry, bath in the center, and the bedroom on the end, with a wrap-around view! The staff couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating, and really made our stay special. The front desk staff/manager were friendly, courteous, and professional. We appreciated the Starbucks lounge, and the ability to get a quick cup of coffee upon returning from the falls. Breakfast was superb, too...We all swam and relaxed in the indoor pool each night (plenty of towels), and we soaked up the view afterwards, from the suite. We were lucky, in that we could also see the Sunday night fireworks from our window! It is definitely worth reserving a falls-view room! It was better to stay here, a bit further away from the busy "strip." Doubletree should be very proud of this new addition....we were delighted! I would not hesitate to recommend it to friends and family...and would love to return!
Great room, excellent locale!
My wife and I just got back from a two night stay at this hotel. It was our first visit to Niagara Falls and I was a bit anxious about booking a hotel that was brand new. I must say I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived early in the day, well before check-in time but our room was already ready. The room was beautiful and quite spacious- two queen beds, lots of pillows, and very clean. The view was decent, although if you're looking for a fallsview room this isn't the place for you. We had a view of the Clifton Hill area and could see the upper part of the river in the distance. We didn't eat any meals there so I can't comment on the food. The location is excellent. Although its a few blocks away from most other hotels, it is right across the street from the IMAX and the Skylon Tower. The falls are about a 10 minute walk, as is the Clifton Hill area. The new casino (which is also really nice) is about 4 blocks away.
If you're going to Niagara Falls, and don't want to pay extra for a fancy fallsview room, then this is the place to go. I would definitely stay there again!
Doubletree July 18-21
We stayed here for 3 nights. Very close to Clifton Hill. The hotel was only 3 weeks old. Very close to Tony Romas and TGI Fridays. My two young girls enjoyed the pool. Never out of towels by the pool as I read in other reviews. The rooms were kept very nice. For $96 American dollars this was a very good deal. We would stay here again.
A Very Nice Stay
We stayed 3 nights at the Doubletree in a standard room, and received excellent service. At check in we requested a roll away bed, because we were traveling with 3 kids. The extra bed was in our room before we even made it up the elevator. We asked for a high floor and was given the 16th floor out of 19. We arrived early, (before check in time) and was able to get into our room. The room was large for a standard room, and decorated very nice. They had beautiful prints through out the hotel. My children loved the pool, two hot tubs, one inside and one outside. We bought the breakfast package with our room and was very happy with it. The buffet had scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, french toast, fresh fruit, bagels, muffins, omelettes made to order and drinks.
The hotel is centrally located, between Clifton Hill and Horseshoe falls. It sits back alittle from main strip, but easy walking distance to all attractions.
The hotel was very clean and the staff was pleasant.
I disagree with the August 25th comment. My girlfriend and I have been twice (we are locales) for breakfast. The buffet includes an omellette station. I especially enjoy the Western omellette. The place is gorgeous. We'll keep going back, we really enjoy it.
It not bad but...
This was a new hotel. It had a very large pool. We had a group of 30 and they messed up our reservations. DO NOT EAT THE BREAKFAST!!!!!!! we spent $80 on 'all you can eat buffet' what you would consider continental breakfast. IT WAS A JOKE. Other than that it was ok. I had a better experiance at the Embassy Suits last summer.
Very Nice, but some flaws
Stayed at the Doubletree Niagara Falls last week for 2 nights. Standard room, 2 queen beds for 2 adults, 2 kids. This is a new property. I believe it opened a few months ago. Overall the hotel and room was extremely nice. It was clean, neat and the service was almost above average. The view of the falls from our 10th floor room was great. There were a few negatives the hotel managment needs to work on. Check in took 15 minutes and we were never really aprised of the problem. The concierge was clueless about the hotel bar with the TV. She sent me to the upstairs bar with no TV. The TV bar was 30 feet from her and she didn't know it. The concierge had no idea about a Mexican or Southwestern Restaurant and made no attempt to assist us in finding one. And lastly, the pool kept running out of towels and when they had them only brought in about 6 at a time for many more guests and children.
Overall, the hotel is above average based on comfort, location and most amenities and I would recommend it .
Very nice Hotel - Will come back again
I agreed with the two previous reviewers. We booked 4 rooms for 3 nights late July 2004. This is a brand new hotel and staff told us their first opening day was July 1, 2004. Hotel staff were very friendly. Warm cookies for everyone at check-in. The lobby has high ceiling and lots of wood beams. We had 4 rooms on the same (9th) floor with upper river view. All were non-smoking and double QUEEN beds. Two of the rooms were connecting rooms per our request. The in-door heated pools were great. One designed for younger children and one lap pool for adult connected to the Jacuzzi. The reason I did not give it a 5* is because of the noise level. The rooms were not insulated well when built. You can hear next door and people talk on the hall way if they're a little loud.
Location wide - Perfect. IMAX is right across the street. 10 minutes walk to the left is Cliffton Hills. 10 Minutes walk to the right is the new casino. 5 minutes walk straight to the back, down the steps and you're at the Falls.
Parking is $9 per day and is charged to the hotel bill, which is cheap. Parking on the street using the meter is $1 per hour, that's $24 a day. When I go back to Niagara, I'll definitely staying here again.
Loved this hotel!
The Doubletree is a beautiful hotel, with great services and amenities to match. The view is of both the tops of the American and Canadian Falls. We didn't care to be right on top of the Falls like some of the other hotels are. The rooms were very clean and beautifully furnished. I'm not easily pleased when it comes to clean hotel rooms, but this was one of the cleanest! Nice pool(s) and hot tub(s). Great restaurant in the hotel and a Starbucks lounge that serves alcoholic drinks as well as coffee. The breakfast buffett was wonderful, with made to order omlettes and plenty of healthy foods too. We would definately stay here again.
"The Best Luxury Hotel in Niagara"
I just spent one night at the brand new Doubletree Resort Lodge & Spa. The location is perfect it's about a 10 minute walk to Clifton Hill and the brand new casino and around a 15 minute walk or so to the falls. The lobby is beautiful it's done like a lodge inside, the rooms were just as nice too and the beds were really comfortable. If your looking for fallsview rooms stay else where, you wont find many rooms here with great falls views, the room i had was on the 7th floor and had a great view of the upper river and part of the american falls. I have seen the falls enough times i don't care if my hotel room faces them.
I can't wait to return next time when the spa is open i have stayed in many hotels in Niagara Falls and the Doubletree is the best!

We arrived to over cast skies and a feeling of oh not going to be good. Then we got to our hotel and the receptionist was so welcoming and before we knew it the spell of the Niagara Falls area gripped us. Got to our room and what a lovely big room sofa to relax and the very inviting King size bed! Then wait for it. We open the sheer curtain to the …
... grass land behind the footpath. Either way both are set up for tourism. But the Canadian side goes one better. Jen and I were returning from our (walk across the borders, which turned into a mere 11km loop walk around the USA park and then back along the Canadian side) when we thought for some strange reason we were hungry! Lets go up one of these streets and get something to eat.
So we walked up the nearest streets and would you believe it, it was like ...
... that would then crash over the American and Horseshoe falls. I had not realised that there are 2 falls at Niagara which are divided by an island land mass. In addition to this major bluff island there are lots of little islands in the white water leading up to the Falls. It is a strange sight to see so many of what are little more than tiny boulders sticking out in the middle of the white water, especially as many support a tree or two. I discovered the reason for ...
... departed Boston at 8pm the night before for the 12 hour ride to Buffalo. No free WiFi but they had more leg room than a usual bus. It was packed full of Asians off to see Niagara as well, so at least we were on the right bus. We made our way right to the back of the bus where there were three seats, one taken with a girl. Alex had to sit next to the toilet which he wasn’t to happy about but it had to be done. We were off. The bus stopped ...
... a magic trick (maybe they stole my phone). Later we headed to a local winery for a tour and tasting. A tasting that we didn't partake in as you all know we don't drink, they must have thought we were odd, but the scenery was enough for us. From there it was approaching dinner time and back on the bus for home. Apart from the unfortunate loss of my mobile, we really had a great day. Fingers crossed it turns up in the ...
