Niagara Falls is an incredibly popular destination – with an estimated 30 million people visiting annually. Growing up I was one of those 30 million more than a few times. Having family in upstate New York meant a visit to the falls at least a handful of times when I was a kid. It even resulted in a recurring nightmare for a while. Long story short – if presented with the opportunity of crossing a rope bridge over the Falls, I’d suggest not doing that. One thing I never did do was stay at Niagara Falls though. It was always a day trip. But, if you do get to stay there, you’re going to want to wake up on the right side of the bed with these Niagara Falls hotels with a view of the falls. It’s really the only right way to do it and I’m excited that Hotels.com asked me to share my thoughts.
Sometimes the view from a hotel doesn’t matter very much, but that is definitely not the case for Niagara Falls. So, if you’re spending more than one day in Niagara Falls, then you’ll want to snag a Niagara Falls hotel with a view of the falls. There are definitely touristy aspects of Niagara Falls but if you get away from the hustle and bustle and explore what the whole thing is about – the incredible power of nature and water – then you’ll be left in awe.
There are plenty of great areas and accommodation so deciding where to stay in Niagara Falls can be an easy or difficult decision depending on how you’re looking at it. But, without a doubt, you’re likely going to want a view of the falls, right? What this does mean is that you’re going to want to stay on the Canadian side for the best view.
What’s better, the American or Canadian side?
The age old question. Here’s my take: If you want to see the falls, the Canadian side. But, if you want to feel the falls, the American side. So with that being said, I’d stay on the Canadian side but explore both sides so make sure that passport is handy. Plus, Rainbow Bridge (that connects the borders) is worth walking over and you’ll need a passport for that!
