The Holiday Inn Niagara Falls
Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
The drive out of Chicago became a wet and wild one as we hit a storm not far out and it continued on and off for the majority of the day's journey. We drove back across Indiana – this time in an easterly direction heading towards New York. The destination for the day was Sandusky, so once we entered into Ohio we …
... drenched by the mist from the falls. The views were pretty spectacular though. After the boat tour I headed over to the foot bridge where you cross the border over into Canada. I had some visa things I had to sort out so while the rest of the group stayed in the American side of the falls I wandered across the bridge into Canada. At the border I got questioned pretty harshly because it wasn't that long ago since I'd been to Canada and ...

... obliterated by the powerful, white mist. Taking photographs was not an easy feat here, which was a good thing to be honest. Sometimes you get so preoccupied trying to capture a moment in a photograph, that it obstructs the ability to just be there and immerse yourself in the present activity. This was a truly incredible experience, and we enthusiastically powered on over to the 'Maid of the Mist' boat ride that takes you right up to the falls. After ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Holiday Inn Niagara Falls
The staff at the front desk is rude and inconsiderate.
We stayed at the Four Points Sheraton hotel April 16 and 17. We didn't have a reservation; I just walked up to the front desk and asked if they had rooms available. The guy at the desk said yes and since the price was reasonable ($119) and the place had an indoor pool, we took it. While he was entering the information, I took out my cell phone to call my husband who was waiting in the car with the kids. I told him the price and he said it was OK and said "Did you remember to ask for two nights?" I don't know if I had initially asked for two nights (I might have) but I made sure to ask the guy the moment my husband mentioned it. The guy was still typing into the computer and nodded. I told my DH OK, we're doing it now, I'll be out in a moment.
I wanted a quiet dinner with my son on 01/23/04 during our hockey tournament. So we left our awful hotel and went to the Four Points Sheraton Restaurant The Peppertree. We went to the front of the restaurant at 4:55pm to be seated and were told they don't open until 5pm? Ok, so we go sit in the lobby and see people needing to be rescued from a stuck elevator. Well, we are seated by an initially friendly fellow and I order a Pinot Grigio. He brings me a noticibly brown glass of at least 1 month rotten, bottle gone bad wine. I told him if it wasn't too much trouble I'd skip the wine. No problem. I order a vodka martini, house vodka to make it easy, and he brings me a martini glass FILLED with vermouth??? I didn't say a word. I was so upset though, you could cut the tension with a dirty steak knife. The waiter obviously thought I was being overly picky by his shortness and evil eye the rest of the time we were there. I ordered one of the minimal entrees on the menu, of course, being the 1st people in the restaurant that Friday evening at 5pm , it would be fresh and great....? NO, they're 'all out' of pork??! I won't disgust you with a review of my 2nd choice. I left the 'martini' untouched, neatly on my napkin. WARNING: Do Not Go To The Four Points Restaurant THE PEPPERTREE to eat!! K Hryckewicz
It was my birthday so my g/f decided to take me to the falls!! i was so excited she told me she got a jacuzzi suite w/ a seperate living area and a fireplace!!! well we get there and the room is 29.99 more than what we reserved the room for then they charged us lik $15 for parking!!!! shouldnt that be free for hotel customers? considering you can go 2 blocks away and park for $10 in public lot!!!so we go to our room, hahaha fireplace?> fireplace you say? lol sum plastic logs behind a peice of glass that has an electric light that flickers like a fire ha ha ha ha...jacuzzi? what jacuzzi, tub with a couple jets...i can buy a kit for $75 to do the same to my tub lol...then you have roomservice forms you can fill out and leave on the door for breakfast the night b4...well they said leave it on door by 2 am which we left it on there at 11pm ...we came back round 1am and it was still on our door...i went to get a drink from the machine at 230 am and it was gone so they got it for sure....well com breakfast time...i look out to see breakfasts lining the hallway...but was there one at my door?

Would go back...except to eat
We recently stayed at this hotel and loved every minute we stayed, being off season i imagine , we were upgraded to a suite...two tv's and two phones..regreigerator, microwave......all the comforts of home....the staff was very helpful and accomadating....the only thing we didn't care for was the restuarant...the food was not prepared to the way we asked and the vegtables were very over done....next time we will stay there but go to some other restaurant to eat...even if it is Denny's
We stayed one night at the Four Points. The accomodations were very nice. This is a great place for a family to stay- the indoor jungle gym, pool, and game room looked like lots of fun for kids. One thing bothered me though- no bartender in the bar? There were a few guests sitting having a drink when we went in, and the bartender was nowhere to be found.
I live in the Falls and recommend to out of town family
I live in the Falls and when out of town family visits - I always book them into the Sheraton. I used to work at a different hotel in the city a few years ago - and I used to go to meetings and events at other hotels as part of my job. I would have to rate the Sheraton in the top 3 hotels to this date. (I say to date because now that there is a casino in our city, there are more hotels going up and alot of hotels are either going to rebuild or renovate - I do know that the Sheraton plans to rebuild competely).The only better hotel is the Red Coach Inn - which I also recommend - however, it is pricey - whereas the Sheraton is mid priced.
I statyed here recently in early June for a couple of nights with my husband and youngest son, who was 10 years old. The rom was spacious and clean, there was an ice machine on the same floor and other than one light glove which was broken in a bedside lamp, I couldn't complain. We had a view of the river but were so busy downstairs and out-on-the-town, forgot to check out the fireworks from the window....
We stayed 5 nights at the Four Points Sheraton Niagara Falls, NY and found it to be quite comfortable. We were given a room on the "view" side, which frankly on the American side of the falls is not much of a view, but it did allow us to see the fireworks at night right from our room window. The room was not too cramped, the shower pressure excellent, and the bed comfortable. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our only complaint had to do with the restaurant, which never seemed to be open. Who ever heard of closing for lunch before 1:00 p.m.?! If you want to avoid the "carnival" atmosphere of staying on the Canadian side of the falls, this is a pretty good choice.
