We had a brilliant day/night in Niagara Falls!
Paul was super surprised to find out Carolyn had booked us a suite with a spa bath at the Embassy right next to the Horse Shoe Falls...we were very happy to be on the 35th floor...here is our view! Brilliant!
Excellent hotel...very friendly and a lovely staff. Lots of kids and older people (seems to be the target market here).
We were picked up at 11.30am from the airport in Buffalo - we had a private transfer - very nice driver and cheap compared to the other options. It was about 40 mins to the hotel which is massive...500+ rooms
We had trouble working out how to get to the actual falls as the railway that goes up and down the hill was not operational. We went back to the hotel to get directions. Once we got down to the viewing area, we took at heap of photos and then did the Journey Behind The Falls - very good experience...
We were going to have dinner at the Keg Falls view restaurant but decided we had a better view from our room so we got Johnny Rockets takeaway and ate it overlooking the falls. At 8pm the lights came on so we headed back down the hill - bloody freezing...it is about 5 to 10 degrees colder down there - we were killing ourselves laughing as we got slammed by the freezing cold mist! It was all worth it in the end as we took some spectacular photos! Headed back up the hill and went to the bar to get our two free drinks!
Got up and had a great buffet breakfast and then were picked up at 10 am to head back to the airport. We are currently at JFK airport awaiting our flight to San Francisco.
