About Niagara Falls

As an international border city, Niagara Falls is conveniently accessed from four international airports: Toronto, Hamilton, Buffalo and Niagara Falls. If you're driving, the city is an easy 85-minute drive from Toronto, and only 40 minutes from Buffalo. Niagara Falls is directly linked to major highways in Canada, and three international bridges that will get you to and from major routes in the United States.  Beyond the hotel’s walls, just a short walk away, the thundering waters of Niagara Falls offer breathtaking natural beauty, while Niagara Parks offers captivating attractions, including the Hornblower Niagara Cruises (boat tour), the Journey Behind the Falls, and the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens.

Niagara Falls is one of Canada’s perfect gems and a wonder of the world! It has incredible power and beauty and is rich with fascinating history and cultural heritage – a perfect place for a meeting of the minds. Plan to spend some time enjoying the many attractions, fun-filled activities, food and culture available here. We invite you to bring your family to enjoy a bit of our Canadian heritage and culture.
