... is unbelievable you are mesmerized. The pressure of the water has erroded the falls which have reseded or fallen away by seven miles since first dicovered by a french explorer Father Hennepin in 1678. We went in the main centre to do our first tour Journey Behind the Falls (they swipe your Adventure Pass you wear around your neck). You get in a lift and go down about 170ft through tunnels to see glimpses of the water ...
Ryanne and I took a bus to Niagara today. We walked around the Falls (which was far less impressive than I thought they would be.) We took some photos around the Falls then went and got one of those funny tourist photos done as well. After that we went to Margaritaville at the top of the street and got some nachos and of course, margaritas!

... t. Between Argentina and Chile I had decided I preferred Argentinian wine, now it was the Canadians turn! We visited a number of wineries. First, we visited Reif and tried some ice wine and a couple of other glasses; the ice wine here was lovely, it was different to the ice wine I had drunk before so I bought some to take home. Our second winery was Inniskillen which is apparently the biggest and most famous ice wine producer in Canada. We took the ...
... below, although I believe it would be beautiful at all times of the year! After we settled into our room we made our way to skylon tower to have dinner in the tall restaurant that revolved, on our walk it started to snow, and we saw the falls with the illuminating lights shining on them in the night very pretty! Tomorrow we will do the scenic tunnels of the falls and head back to NYC for our last night in the states, what a magnificent journey we have had! Lots of love Emma & Sam ...
... lunch, I decided that I would walk to the United States via the Rainbow Bridge. After paying the toll of 50 cents, I was on my way. It takes about 10 minutes to walk along the pedestrian part of the bridge to the United States, I had to clear customs before walking through the park to the Bridal Veil Falls, which are on the United States side of the falls area.

Historical Traveler Reviews Niagara Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre Niagara Falls
This is the worst hotel in Niagara Falls! How ever does it stay in business? Nevermind the fact that it's unkept and down right dirty...but it also has staff/managment that don't know the first thing about running a hotel.
We had a problem with our reservation...it seems this place goes by a first come first serve basis rather than a reservation system because my room was not gauranteed and I received a very dirty smoking instead of non-smoking. I complained bitterly to no avail! So we left the dump and stayed at a decent motel.
Bad bad very bad hotel(more like a motel). My advise is DO NOT stay at this hotel (no matter what 'great deal' you think your getting) At this hotel you are definitely getting what you pay for...cheap cheap cheap!
They gave our rooms away
i booked and paid for rooms through expedia in april for our july vacation. upon arriving, i was informed that my three tower rooms for my party of 8(ages 9-60) were no longer available. they were going to give us rooms in their courtyard. these rooms are comparable to your less-than-average roadside motel.
so i scrambled through my AAA book to find an alternative hotel. fortunately i did, only after @two hours of aggravation, unloading and reloading our cars, spending who knows how much on my cell phone, spending gas money checking out other hotels, looking really bad infront of my family, etc., etc.
My girlfriend and I stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend. Overall, we were very pleased with the accomodations. The hotel is located only a short walk from the "tourist strip" and about 10-15 mintues from the Falls. We only took a taxi once because it was late at night. We walked everywhere. I found the area to be very safe and it is located on a major road. The room was only average-sized, but clean. I found the beds to be very comfortable. The walls must have been very thick because we couldn't hear any noises coming from neighboring rooms. We visited the jacuzzi many times, which was very nice. The hotel has an indoor pool as well (the outdoor pool was still closed). A free casino shuttle was very convenient, which left every hour. We also ate at East Side Mario's, which was very good. The only minor complaints I had were that the indoor pool was a little chilly, the hotel was not as close to the Falls as some other (but much more expensive) hotels, and the pool area ran out of towels on two occasions. However, I was very pleased with my stay, I got a great deal from the hotel (about $50.00 per night in a package deal with exepdia), and the staff was very courteous. I would definitely stay here again.
Excellant Staff, and Service
my family and i arrived at about 4pm, and the check-in went smoothly. we were even offered an upgrade, which we took graciously, and thoroughly enjoyed.
as for the neighborhood, it's a nice, local feeling. the walk/drive to the falls area(midway), was swift and easy, no pain.
the service at east side mario's was fantastic. the staff there made you feel "at home".
i plan on taking my family back, sometime soon, and would highly recommend this hotel.
Enjoyed our stay
We really enjoyed our stay at the Park Plaza. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We arrived before the check in time but only had to wait a short time to be checked in. The room although not large was clean and attractive. Our sink plug wasn't working when we got there but as soon as we mentioned it it was fixed. The value of our two night package was fantastic. The food at East Side Mario's was great. Thanks to the staff for a relaxing stay.
Stayed at the Park Plaza a few times and were never disappointed; even received an upgrade to a jacuzzi suite on one occasion (denied another but that's ok). Friendly staff, average pool/whirlpool area. Casino shuttle a nice plus. We really enjoying dining at East Side Mario's; great Italian Wedding Soup and desserts, fun atmosphere but it can get loud and busy. Overall a nice hotel, reasonable rates.
Average hotel, nice for the price
We stayed during New years eve 2004 for 4 days in the Jr. Jacuzzi suite. Jacuzzi was nice. One glitch: we ordered a smoking room...when we got there they had ordered us non-smoking. But they fixed that right away. When we got in the room it was clean, and the maids cleaned it every day. One of the drawers in the the dresser was broken. Also the remote control was broken but that was fixed after we left a note for the maid. You have to drive to the falls though you can't walk it's too far away. There are not too many parking spaces for such a big hotel.
One night we had to park on the main street. For the price, it's a good hotel but there is better ones out there closer to the falls.
We took a bus tour with Celebration Tours and 50 of us were booked here at once. I suppose glitches can happen with any large group, and they did. So the bad news first: we and some others didn't see our bags for 2 hours after disembarking, and had to call for them, but they were safely stored away.
