Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort
Travel Blogs from Niagara Falls
Ever since I rode in a helicopter over Victoria Falls in 2006, I have wanted to compare it to Niagara Falls. That trip to Vic Falls, sandwiched between Zimbabwe and Zambia, not only put me under Africa's spell, but I got this desire to travel the world and see as many 'big ticket’ items and World Wonders as I could see in my lifetime. Sights …

Packed all our things and put Marg's little home back to normal the morning nurse came with Marg's medication gave her a sponge bath and change of clothes. We all had breakfast Marg is wanting to give me her raincoat she never wears so I won't get wet in Niagara Falls plus one of her bracelet's. I did want to upset her any more so I ...

So following some rapid packing, there I was in the standby line-up at 8AM awaiting the 9:10AM sailing. 'Lady Luck' smiled upon me as with about 20 minutes spare, I was sold a boarding ticket. Along with me in the 'line of fools' was a fellow motorcyclist from Michigan. There were a couple of things that made him stand out. For ...

However, on finding out that it was so much cheaper to stay an extra night than fly back as soon as we'd finished the interviews, there was only one thought that crossed my mind - we'd have an opportunity to see the Falls. And with all their work now safely in the bag, Alex and Paul felt the same way too.

And that is the grand sum of what we did! Unless you count the massive Indian feast we gorged on on the second night. But for the other couple of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort
My wife and I went here for our summer vacation. We had heard that valet parking was $25 but upon arrival we got lucky because it was the first day that it was reduced to $5. My wife is very picky about rooms and usually wants to stay int he newest and best place. This trip was no exception. For someone hard to please at times, she was very happy about the room. Beautiful bathroom with robes as well as the best view of the falls you can find. We are big gamblers and loved the tables. The pit bosses and dealers were very nice and they really take care of you with free meals. We never paid for a meal while there. The only downside is that the hotel and casino only had 2 restaurants at that time. I spoke with several people and they said they were in the process of expanding. There is a buffet inside the casino, but parents beware, your children will not be able to eat there because there is no outside entarnce into the buffet. The other was a fine dining restaurant called 17 noir and it is very nice. there is a diner at the main entrance but its not owned by the casino. We loved it here and plan on going again in October for our 1 year anniversary.
We were undecided on which hotel to stay in Niagara Falls. Since this was our first trip and I already checked 5 hotels in the area for availability, we drove to Niagara first to take a look around. After walking through the Marriott, Embassy Suites and Renaissance, we made the decision to stay at the Fallsview Casino Resort.
We were staying at another Niagara Falls area hotel this past weekend but wandered into the Fallsview Casino to take a look. We inquired at the front desk if we could see one of their best rooms for a future stay. They were more than happy to acommadate our request and a very friendly bellboy took us up to see one of their jacuzzi suites. The room, albiet surprisingly small, was BEAUTIFUL, very nicely decorated/furnished with a commanding panaromic view of both the American and Horseshoe falls. It was truely breathtaking! The room contained every imaginable amenity, including a bathrroom scale, robes and a safe ("for all your winnings at the casino"). The jacuzzi tub was located in the marble bathroom which also had a view of the falls. It was definitely a one person tub so honeymooners, take note. The bellboy showed us the fitness area which was very ncie, the Spa and the pool. The pool was small but the area was very inviting. We are definitely going to consider the Fallsview Casino hotel for our annual November trip to Niagara Falls.....and we don't even gamble!! We found the staff to be very courteous and helpful.
Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort was a outstanding hotel. The service they had provided us and the rest of the hotel residence was excellent, there was always someone there to fill in your needs. The hotel room decor and the hotels' decor was fabulous, such plesant and lovly choices of colours brought relaxation upon you. The bedding and the apperance of the room gave it a luxurious feel to it, the washroom was neat and tidy with clean towels everyday. The casino was excellent, I love to gamble and they had a variety of different games and machines to choose from. The hotel is located perfect for anyone who stays there, it's close to any attraction, perfect for walking distance to anywhere. The food was such good quality, it was worth the cost, it's fancy and elegant for any evening, the chef's special's were lovly and tastful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, just try and get a discounted price though, some rooms are expensive.
My wife and I stayed here for three nights mid week-8/10-12. we were on the 17th floor with a full few of the horeshoe falls. It was spectacular to wake up to and to see at night with the lights on the water. The room was large with a great bathroom and all the normal amenities. We ate at the buffet in the casino for lunch and dinner. Very reasonable price. just 19.95 (CDN) for dinner which included all the jumbo shrimp you can eat...already peeled! and crab legs along with prime rib, rib eye steak, lamb chops, pork chops, and you name it. major desserts. the lunch was $12.95 (CND) with basically the same food without the shrimp and crab. The casino was huge, as big as anything in Vegas and very clean. Service was great throughout and we definitely wil be back.
What can I say??? My husband and I enjoyed our one night stay as we were traveling on to Toronto. First of all we booked our room for a fabulous rate of $99 CAD because of a promotional mailing we received. Upon arrival, the valet (Paul who was so nice!) helped empty our car, and show us to the check-in. We were greeted by Shawn who was so helpful. He was happy to hear we were celebrating our anniversary and gladly upgraded us to a full fallsview room. We had a spectacular view on the 23rd floor of both sets of falls. We were able to see the fireworks from our room. There is so much to do there, that we decided not to even leave the resort during our one day there. What is also nice is that it is not overpopulated with as many tourists as the Clifton Hill area is. Nice for a young couple traveling looking for a place to relax!! We ate dinner at the Grand Buffet. We didn't ilike the 45 minute wait to get in---then they had shut down one side of the food so you had to wait for 20 minutes on the food line! Not the hilight of the day!! Upon returning to our room we found a tray of chocolate covered strawberries with a note wishing us a happy anniversary!!! Nice touch from the management. We used the pool and the hottub (which is very small and too hot!). We were disappointed that all of the shops were not completed and opened yet. Also, the map is quite confusing because things aren't completed so we thought there was a bridge to walk to the Skylon tower, only the bridge isn't done so we had to walk out of the way to get there. Not a huge deal though. The casino itself is small and the odds weren't terrific, but all in all we had a wonderful, relaxing time!!
Stayed one night last Sunday ($209.00). Hotel nice enough with room on the smallish side overlooking American Falls which was a bonus for 10pm fireworks display. Pleasant check-in staff and we were pleased to have our room as soon as we checked in at 11am. Also on the plus side was that bathroom with tub and seperate shower stall. Down side was the water pressure was very soft and the washbasin was too high (I'm 5ft 10 and it came up to my solar plexus), especially for my wife who at 5ft 4 found it disconcerting. Other major disappointment is the tiny pool in the spa area and the lack of good restaurants. We tried the trying-to-be-upscale "17 Noir Restaurant" in the Galleria that is part of the hotel.It boasts a very over-priced menu with so-so food ($220.00 with tip including food and a glass of wine each).The coffee-shop diner opposite the hotel entrance looks quite good but it is small and fills up quickly so line-ups are the norm (we decided not to wait and went mistakenly to Denny's). The Grand Buffet food in the Casino is okay (we had lunch) but nothing special,however it is very pleasant and quiet probably because no one under the age of 19 is admitted because of its location in the Casino. As far as we are concerned the Marriott Fallsview where we stayed the last time in May is still the better deal in terms of space,comfortable beds,spectacular views and amenities as is the Hilton accross the street where we stayed last January. Only stay here if you are a gambler and get them to comp the room or you get a really big discount. One cautionary note is to think twice before going to the Denny's accross the street from the Casino and next to the Hilton as its prices are higher than the Hotel's elegant little coffee shop. A standard breakfast for two (eggs,bacon,toast and coffee) came to $38.00 before tip!
My wife, 2.5y old son and I stayed two nights, Aug 5&6, and were very impressed by the hotel. The hotel was very stunning upon arrival, waterfalls, mutliple lights, criss crossing pathways that lead into a wide hall with specatacular water fountain.
Fallsview sets new standard @ Niagara Canada
Stayed at the new Fallsview Casino resort on June 13, 2004 - just 4 days after the opening. Room on the 21st floor overlooking both Canadian & US Falls was spectacular. Anemities superior to most other hotels in the area - the thick glass seperate shower & spacious tiled bathroom impressive as were Egyptian cotton sheets & down 'featherbed', plush robes, thick carpeting, 3 phones etc. Staff very courteous, new parking ramp & elevator areas were secure with attendants asking to see room key before you could go beyond the lobby area. The spa/pool not open, July opening hopefully. Very quiet, you'd not know Casino on 1st floor. Would definitely return.
Fallsview Casino Niagara Falls-lovely
We stayed one night at the new Fallsview Casino Resort in Niagara Falls (6/30/04--$150). It was plush and lovely. Our room wasn't ready upon check-in so we were upgraded to what they called a "partial view". To our delight it was a beautiful full view of the Horseshoe Falls. Spectacular. The rooms were spic-and span new and clean. Only disappointment was that the pool and main restaurant were not open yet and we weren't told this when we made our reservation or at check-in. Casino was OK, but we're not gamblers. Perfect location-with easy access to everything. I'd stay there again as long as the rates are discounted (very high when I last checked-over $400).
