Day 22: Maid of the Mist, Niagara Falls

A travel blog entry by greg-mary-scott

... need of major repairs and the area immediately outside the park is a cesspool of sleazy tourist traps. Once you have survived the walk into the state park things do get better. There are lots of places where you can view the Niagara River and American Falls but the trash outside the park turned me off to wanting to enjoy the park. For us the highlight is riding Maid of the Mist. As you board the boat you are handed a light weight rain poncho and told that you ...

The American side of falls

... brilliant and gave us amazing views. We took an elevator to the bottom to view the gorges, which were cool. When we went back up the top we paid another visit to the visitor centre. It was here we made an error in paying to see a 40 minute video about Niagara Falls. This was a shockingly bad film and just listed fact after fact all set before 1970's graphics. It was here that we decided to leave Niagara to begin our drive to Macedonia. We stopped off on the way for a ...

After a bit of a lie in, shower and breakfast we said our goodbyes to Chris and Sav and were on the road for 11, heading north to Niagara Falls. The journey was due to take about 4 hours so Chris had very kindly made us a pack up so we didn't have to stop unless we needed to. As per usual I fell asleep again, only waking up when Oli was shaking me as we're approaching a toll bridge! Nice quick journey... :) As ...

Falling Water.....

The morning at Watkins Glen State Park dawned dry, but overcast. We were snug in our bed in Blue while the rain poured down during the night. Most of our campground neighbors were in tents and I felt a bit of sympathy watching them trying to dry out from the rain. But, in this case the rain was a very good thing for Barb and I.

The only thing on this morning's agenda is a hike through Watkins Glen. A glen is a canyon or ...

Happy 2012 everyone! :) Time for the next adventure, I'm somewhat behind... Although I had a bit of a warning from Diederik & Anahita about Niagara Falls, it still wasn't what I expected (the warning was that there was a casino and other touristy stuff). The Falls itself are amazing, and although the weather was freezing cold and the water blows right into your face (or was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Buffalo Marriott Niagara Amherst

    Best hotel in western New York

    from

    I stayed the weekend of December 16 and loved it. the service was fantastic, my room was immaculately clean and the restaurant, Houlihans, was outstanding. Even the Denver Broncos were there that weekend. I would recommend to anyone.

    Tired Hotel

    from

    I am a Marriott fan and usually stay at Marriott hotels. Although this hotel is fine to overnight in, the rooms look tired and need some updating and renovating. They were clean, and I would stay in them again for a short stay. The bathrooms are tiny for a hotel of this size. Newer hotels certainly have much bigger bathrooms. This is not one of the best Marriott's I've stayed in. As a matter of fact, it doesn't compare favorably with most of them. For the money, this was not a good value. I've stated in newer Fairfield Inn's by Marriott that were nicer and far less expensive. I don't mind paying a lot for a room, but this didn't match price.

    Looks nice, service doesn't match

    from

    I recently stayed at this hotel in Amherst NY. Typical Marriott. Lobby was nice. Restaurant was a chain called Houlahans. Food like a Fridays, service slow and nothing special. Rooms were typical Marriott. The overall attitude of the staff was nothing special. They were working but didn't seem happy to be there. I didn't feel welcomed and would definitely chose a friendlier hotel next time.

    Lovely hotel 30 minutes from Niagara Falls

    from

    It's a nice, clean hotel with Neutrogena shampoo & conditioner in their bathrooms. The hotel has 2 pools (indoor & outdoor), which are perfect for kids. Our room was a dark one with a little window shaded by trees, but we liked it anyway. I don't know if they have better, brighter rooms, but if gloomy environment is not for you, then you better look for another hotel or make sure they have sunny rooms.

    Bed needs replacing

    from

    Clean, nice hotel. The mattress we had needed replacing, it sags badly towards the middle, not what I expect from a higher end hotel. I thought the restuarant was a little expensive ($28.00 for a breakfast buffet). The rooms are not as soundproof as one would expect, I could hear most everything in the next room. The staff though was very friendly and helpful.

    Nice stay at the Marriott

    from

    We spent a couple of nights in mid-October (2004) at the Marriott in Buffalo. We were in Buffalo for a specific event (a tournament), or would not have chosen to stay in Buffalo at all. (The "Buffalo Marriott Niagara" is a misnomer, since it's around 30 minutes to Niagara Falls. If your purpose is to stay near Niagara Falls, I'd suggest looking for a hotel much closer to Niagara Falls. There are certainly plenty of hotels on both sides of the Falls themselves.)

    Another good Marriott Experience

    from

    Stayed at the Buffalo Niagara Marriott for one night. I was checking in a large group (12 people) paid for with a state purchase order. It took the front end staff a few additional minutes to work it out, but they were friendly and had me and my group with rooms close together within 10 minutes.

    My room was a standard room with a king and a sofa sleeper. It seems to be larger than your standard Marriott room. Overall in very nice condition, but some of the furnishings seemed to be a bit older than my previous Marriott stay at the Toronto Airport location.

    The bed was older but still very comfortable with plenty of down pillows and the warm down duvet. The bathroom was well stocked for a double occupancy room.

    Great Manager, Great Service!

    from

    We have been staying at the Buffalo Marriott Niagara on a regular basis for the past 20 years. This is by far the best hotel in Buffalo. The lobby and rooms are super clean. I must commend the Hotel Manager, Dick S. He has always been friendly and he is anxious to please. The pool area is great, too. It is indoor and outdoor. I believe that the lobby has just been remodeled. When visiting Buffalo, stay at the Buffalo Marriott Niagara. Oh yeah, the location is fine. Amherst is a nice neighborhood and UB is across the street.

    Great looking pool but...

    from

    The rooms in this hotel need to be updated. We checked in and out--in 10 minutes. The lobby was clean, updated and nice. The staff were polite and helpful. They were even nice about negotiating a price for the rooms. We arrived at the room. IT was small, dark and old/worn looking. The quilts, similar to those so beautiful at the Resaissance (DelMonte in Pittsford, for example) had been washed too many times and were very faded as a result. The dark carpeting looked old. The room gave me the creeps. The pool-inside and out connected, was enticing for my son but not enough that he was willing to forego a room with lots of cable channels (this one did not have Nick, cartoon network, etc) in exchange so we left. The staff were nice about it.

    Always love the Marriott!

    from

    We have been staying at the Buffalo Niagara Marriott for 15 years and have never experienced anything but wonderful service!

    The rooms are fresh and clean every time we stay , and the service is beyond compare.

    Our family looks forward to our weekend getaways each time we go and we always enjoy our stay.
