Radisson Hotel & Suites Fallsview
Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
Today was our last day in Niagara Falls. I find it rather sad, the thought of not being able to see the Falls every day.
We didn't have a lot planned for the day. We started the day with breakfast at IHOP again. Amazing bacon omelette! The boys were hoping to check out the gun range, but it turned out to basically be a fairground …
Dull day travelling.
Left hotel in Montreal at 9am. Arrived hotel Niagara Falls at 8pm.
Taxi from hotel to train station
Train from Montreal to Toronto
Train from Toronto to Burlington
Coach from Burlington to Niagara Falls Bus Station
Taxi from Niagara Fall Bus Station to Hotel.
So we started the day with bacon, pancakes and maple syrup with a side of hash and mushrooms at IHOP. Great start.
Then we headed down to the Falls where we had booked a trip out on the Hornblower Cruise (formerly Maid of the Mist).
Actually, I don't have the words to describe it - the only thing …
Today was the first day that we didn't have any specific plans. So, we decided the best thing to do would be to take a leisurely stroll down to the Visitor's Centre to find out what's around. Turns out, quite a lot, but you need a car.
We spent some time taking more photos of the Falls, had a nose around the gift shop, got accosted by a …
This was an absolutely amazing natural beauty. We decided to make the effort to stay on the Canadian side of the falls which turned out to be well worth it! The view of horse shoe bay falls immediately from this side (and in our case from the hotel room) was more then expected. While the river the falls ran into was partly frozen over, it only …

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Hotel & Suites Fallsview Niagara Falls
I truly enjoyed my stay at the Radisson. My boyfriend and I had a room on the top floor, and the view of the falls was perfect. The front desk was very friendly and helpful to us. The only reason I gave this hotel four stars is because of the parking situation. They do take your car a few streets away, and it's not fun if you need something out of your car. I would definitly advise eating at the Skylon Tower. It's expensive, but very romantic.
A pleasant stay
My fiancee and i had a wonderful time at the radisson, We had a beautiful suite that overlooked the falls. The room was spacious and well worth the money. We were given free passes to the Minolta Tower to look at the falls. The only complaint that I have was about the parking situation. They take your car and park it 2 blocks away and if you need anything from you car you must call them and they will bring you to it......a bit of an inconvience. Overall the stay was great, just beware of the construction that is going on with Casino Niagara, it makes getting down to the falls a bit confusing.
recently visited the radisson(jan.9) for a night in a fallsview jacuzzi suite.i paid for and reserved the room around december 20th and i was very specific in my request for a room on the top floor.i paid premium dollar for this room 3 weeks before our trip because i wanted a room on the top floor.i was going to propose to my girlfriend and i wanted everything to be special.the people who i reserved the room with were friendly and told me they would make a special note on my reservation about the top floor and my marriage proposition because i wanted a good view,etc etc....when we arrived,i was told my room was about 3/4 of the way up(i forget what floor but it was not very high and afforded me a great view of the hotel across the street).this upset me because of the promises i had received when i paid for the room.the lady told me there was nothing she could do and that there was no special note about my proposal plans.why tell me one thing moreless as a sales tactic and then just ignore my wishes.i really am not a fussy guy but this was the most important day of my life and i wanted everything to be perfect. i dont expect perfection with anything or anyone but it seemed to me like the effort put forth by the staff was an effort to get my money as opposed to an effort to make me happy.when we got up to our room it was freezing cold and took about 4 hours and a portable heater delivered by maintenance to get it up to a level of somewhat comfort.maintenance said that most of the rooms are unnocupied weekdays and this being a friday night the room heaters were just turned on.we arrived at 7 oclock-the hotel staff knew all day long that people would be staying in the hotel that night so why wait so late to turn the heat on.it was honestly cold in our room when we arrived even with our coats on and im not exagerating one bit.the front lobby was also ridiculously cold the whole time we were there and you have to walk through the lobby area to get anywhere.has anyone ever seen a frontdesk worker in a major hotel chain trying to type while wearing winter gloves?me neither until we got to the radison.the lobby was really really cold.the heat wasnt working in the lobby is what the desk clerk told us.the broken heat,along with the automatic doors that open everytime someone inside walks even close to them(you have to walk by them to get anywhere-even to the pool so you are in your swimming trunks walking by the doors and you get a blast of cold outside air which is even colder than the frigid inside air-revolving doors would do a great job here)... the view of the falls was not worth the extra money because of the steam generated by the falls you cant see anything-also you cannot see the nightly fireworks because the marriott is in the way.....the pool area was pretty crappy compared to other hotels ive been to-it has a glass wall the whole length of it looking outside so anyone driving by the hotel or going into the outback restaurant can see you in the pool-kind of a privacy issue with me. the next night we went down the road to the cairn croft best western and i got a suite and free breakfast for two for half the money and we had a much better time-the best western was a far better value and the overall facility was much more people friendly than the radison cash grab. I would not stay in this hotel ever again because i was very unhappy about the whole issue with my reservation and trying to plan out my marriage proposal-i put so much effort into making it special and i felt that the radison just told me what i wanted to hear to get my money and then ignored my wishes.
Road construction and dirty cold pool
After reseaching, the hotel looked like a very nice place to stay and most of all convenient to the falls (within walking distance). We stayed for only one night in November 2003 and planned to walk to the falls during the day and also at night. The hotel neglected to tell us at the time of reservation that it would be impossible to walk to the falls from the hotel due to the major road construction. This was quite a hassle for us since we were traveling with a group of small children.
Since I questioned the walking distance to the falls during my reservation call, I think it would have been considerate to tell me about the construction. Regarding the premises, it was nicely decorated for the holidays and clean. The pool was a major disappointment. The pool was dirty and unpleasantly cool for an indoor heated pool. I doubt that i would stay here again.
We had a very pleasant visit to Niagara Falls. The Radisson Hotel was very nice and offered us a wonderful vacation package.
Very Pleasant stay...I highly recommend
I booked a package with the Raddison Fallsview in the summer of 2003. It included one night stay with Maid of the mist for 2, butterfly conservatory for 2, dinner at a choice of three restaurants. ( We ate at the outback steakhouse on restaurant premises) and unlimited use for the Minolta tower all for $215.00 canadian for EVERYTHING. The hotel staff were extremely pleasant and we felt they really appreciated our business. Our room was a Jacuzzi King size bed suite and our room overlooked the falls. It was very comfortable, nice bathroom with lots os complimentary toilletries. The bed was so comfortable and the pillows. I loved this hotel and I would defintely go back.
An Absolute Gem
From start to finish, the hotel experience was amazing. Staff was friendly and efficient, common areas were spotless and tasteful, and, above all, the room was magnificent. We stayed in a "standard room" that was anything but standard. It included a separate sitting area for watching tv, significantly upgraded furniture, jacuzzi tub (no extra charge), and SPOTLESS conditions. And, for the record, all this service and quality was had for less than $90 CDN.
A little disappointed---
We stayed at the Raddison & booked 2 rooms since we were takeing visitors from Italy. We booked a special deal we saw on the web site. We spoke directly with the hotel & confirmed the special. The special was a 2 night accomadation with discounts on food,shows. We needed 2 specials. When we checked out we were given a different price. We were not the only ones argueing at the front desk. The wording of the ad was apparently misleading. Except for this problem the hotel was very nice. The discounts on food & attractions were also well worth it. we did have a nice trip & so did our guests.
Great Views, Great Service
We stayed here for two nights in May 2002 and had a great experience. We reserved two rooms on an upper floor with views of the Falls. The views were superb...a large window with a perfect view of Horseshoe Falls. We had excellent service at the front desk and by all staff we encountered. We received free tickets to go to the top of the Minolta Tower to view the light show at night. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. The price was excellent, too. The only problem we encountered was that the parking is inconvenient. We would definitely stay there again.
The Radisson Hotel at Niagara Falls was a terrible disappointment. After extensive research it sounded ideal. Certainly, the rates were attractive and the room appointments sounded generous. Sadly, once you arrive, you realise that it is nothing more than a mass market, high throughput hotel of obvious mediocrity. Interior décor and bathrooms are a big disappointment, as is the service. Its not dirty, its not uncomfortable, its just got a big problem with a complete lack of style and atmosphere. The place simply has no character at all.
I had cause to complaint about my room and received a curt, sarcastic response from the Front Desk Manager. When I protested his rude demeanour, he only got worse. Not a happy visit.
For only a little more, you can stay at the vastly superior Marriott Fallsview which is right in front of the Radisson, is a true 5 star property and genuinely boasts the best location at Niagara Falls. We checked out of the Radisson, moved to the Marriott and loved it!
