... part of valor, we started to work our way out of that area. Not as easy as it sounds like to do as it turned out! The good news is that we got a self-guided tour of the projects as we maneuvered to the highway we wanted to take to our camp for the night.
What we did manage to see of Rochester (besides the projects) seemed to be quite nice. We saw many large older homes and some areas that were obviously becoming re-gentrified. I am sorry that we had to miss the ...
... it, to actually be in the heart of this fantastic wonder of nature and to experience it in the raw was just awesome it was just so unbelievable. The next stage was cave of winds (see photos see yellow ponchos and check out the free sandals), where we had great fun getting wet and misbehaving under the spray, and the roar of the falls was deafening.
Next we travelled over the the Canadian side (yay another stamp on ...
... we were facing the USA...there was even a rainbow bridge over to it. The American side looked loads nicer than the Canadian side as there weren't any casinos and cheap shops that we could see. A couple of the others in the group said that they had been over on the American side and it was a nice area but the view wasn't as good, so in terms of our pictures we did get a good deal. The boat ride was really cool...there were points where you couldn't see ...

After an epic photo shoot in front of the falls we head over to the Canada falls, A nice walk but didn’t really get any better a view so if you are pushed for time I wouldn’t stress about heading over that way. There are food places and a gift shop though so if you have time you might like to ...

The falls themselves (when we finally got to them) were of course spectacular although not in full flow (due to all the ice and snow about!). We had a laugh at the fact that the American side does not give a very good view of the bigger falls (which is called ‘Horseshoe Falls’) which is the main event. In true American style, the one that they could see (a much smaller and less majestic one) they named the ‘Americas ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Salvatore's Garden Place Hotel Williamsville
Nice place, but cut the gaudy!
As an anniversary gift, we received a weekend stay at the Garden Place shortly after it opened.
Was clean,quiet, relaxing, good breakfast buffet. Room was average size, had a jacuzzi in bedroom area. Different.
Went back to book a second stay and were turned off when we drove up. We were overwhelmed with statues, fountains, trinkets & multi-colored, multi-variety artificial flowers crowding the grounds. WHAT HAPPENED? The elegance was gone, the gaudy was in. A good thing had gone bad. Sorry, but we drove off to seek a simpler, more elegant hotel (less pricey to boot!). Maureen & Dave
Our Only Escape
My fiance and I find the Garden Place the perfect escape that we can take advatage of several times a year. It's elegant, affordable and we appreciate the Salvatore family giving us the opprotunity to enjoy their hospitality.
Most romantic encounter for a getaway
This hotel is absolutley beautiful!! My fiance and I go at least 1 to 2 times a year for a small getaway to feel on top of the world. The Jacuzzi suites are wonderful and the restauraunt is great. The decor is alot to take in but thats what makes it all the best!!!
Nice Hotel, a little overpriced
The Garden Place is a gorgeous hotel although it may just a tad bit overpriced. The rooms are very clean and the jacuzzis are wonderful.
The bathrooms are a little small though and the front desk staff are rude. My recommendation for people who plan to visit in the future is to spend the extra money on the other types of suites such as the emperor, mini-emperor, etc. You'll get a little more bang for your buck and the cost difference is not that much compared to the standard jacuzzi suites which are really just studio suites with a jacuzzi.
Simply put, The Best there is!!!!!
As a business traveler I stay in the Buffalo area one or two nights a week. This is just the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms, and appointments are second to none. The service is spectacular. The rates are very competitive to the chain hotels which offer much less.
This is one of my favorite stops now and the restaurant was wonderful.
You must see this place at Christmas time.
Even though I was on a business trip, I felt like I was on vacation and so relaxed.
I'm taking my hubby there soon.
Love it 5 stars and more!
Garden place is better than any BnB for amour!
husband and i spent our wedding night here, and i prepared him for the gaudiness, and we loved it. service and cleanliness is impecable. saw about 10 other brides and grooms checking in as well. also runs a free shuttle to anywhere you want to go- your own DD for free! and you know, buffalo bars dont close til 4 so that is quite useful. my big question is- why do they serve free kool-aid? how weird is that?
Will go again
for the price of the room we were surprised.it was a lot more then we expected.a little gaudy but it was ok
The most gaudy place I have ever seen!
The place is filled with mirrors, collections of crap and looks like early 1950 tasteless italian or greek. The price is about twice what it is worth. A suite is not two rooms. or two areas. The jacuzzi was not comfortable though large enough for two. It looks like a cheap imitation of Atlantic City.
We Love The Garden Place
We have satayed at the Garden Place Hotel twice and are looking forward to the upcoming weekend to make our third visit. The hotel coupled with Salvatore's Italian Gardens Restaurant makes this a wonderful escape weekend. I am sure we will make many trips back.
