Niagara Falls Hotel Review: Corner Suite at the Sheraton On the Falls

After a slightly lackluster experience at the Four Points Fallsview, I was really hoping the Sheraton on the Falls would impress. Driving up I felt anxious. The entrance is in the middle of a bunch of attractions and on a Saturday afternoon, clogged with parked cars and tour buses. If you’re not looking carefully like me, you’ll miss it and have to drive around the block again. But the second time around I did see the line for the parking entrance and pulled in.
The lobby, as is to be expected with such a central location, was a total zoo of people. But fortunately the dedicated SPG lane was open and I skipped a fairly long line for a quick check in. I’d been upgraded from a City View room (booked with 10,000 points vs paying $350 CAD) to one of their Corner Suites overlooking the Falls and I was ecstatic!
The room also came with access to the Club Lounge which included evening appetizers and breakfast.
Plus, because the $15.95 resort fee included free internet, Platinums upgraded from self-parking ($29) to valet parking. This simplified things immensely since I had bought a lot of wine earlier that day which needed to be hauled to the room to stay cool.
In addition to free internet, the resort fee also included:
- Family e-portrait at Hershey’s Chocolate World
- Beer tasting for 2 at Niagara Brewing Company
- Unlimited long distance calls to anywhere in the USA or Canada
- Unlimited local calls
- 2 bottles complimentary water per day
- In-room Starbucks and Tazo teas
- Unlimited access to Sheraton Fitness
- 2 WEGO tickets (local bus system, $14 value)
This time the elevators were much more clearly marked and soon I was scrunched in with tons of other guests, headed to the 16th floor.
It was just as great as the pictures online. Better in fact. It was spacious, well outfitted, even boasted a sitting area complete with fireplace. But you just couldn’t beat the walls of windows and that view!
Off the sitting room.
Even on the far wall.
In the bathroom!
The bathroom though…The shower was not intuitive and the splash guard comes out at a weird angle that makes getting in and out awkward.
But really the only way it could possibly have been better is if I had a room with a full balcony, but then I wouldn’t have been able to get one of my favorite pictures of the trip!
I didn’t have enough time to check out the pool, the gym or the evening appetizers from 4-7PM in the Club Lounge, but I did stop by the lounge for breakfast. It was decently sized, though on the small side and crowded. There was a partial view of the falls through the Park which was unexpected for a second floor location.
Breakfast options were a little sparse. There were breads, and a handful of pastries. No eggs, but some cakes and pre-made pancakes as well as fruit and yogurt.
A very busy, crowded hotel in the heart of the tourist attractions. Good service though, and if you get a room with a view, you’ll feel miles away from the crowds!
