    Niagra Falls, Canada

    We would like to take the kids to the falls. Anyone been there? I need a hotel sugestion. I would prefer Canada but it dont matter as long as I have a bed.

    If you jog in a jogging suit, lounge in lounging
    pajamas, and smoke in a
    smoking jacket, WHY would anyone want to wear a
    windbreaker?

    Niagra Falls

    Pat: It's been years since we visited the falls. As I recall there is a very nice government run restaurant on the Canadian side. Also, I recall the canadian side downtown as being like a carnival midway, minus the rides. Lots of wax museums, video arcades, t-shirt whops and the like. You children will have a ball. Don't know if the "Maid of The Mist" is accessible. Hope so, you will like the ride as will the kids. Have a great time, take notes and give us a report.

      Niagara Falls

      I was there in July. The main tourist street is called Clifton
      Hill. Lots of fun but very steep. Any hotel that says "walking
      distance to the Falls" does not neccesarily mean wheeling distance
      because of the steep hill down to the Falls area. You need a
      vehicle to get around really well and there is lots off handi-
      capped parking near the Falls. The tunnels behind the Falls are
      accessible to the first two levels with the last level having
      steps. The Maid of the Mist boat ride is accessible via a com-
      bination of elevator and ramp (be prepared for a whicked long
      ramp and you will get wet). All the hotels jack the price way
      up on the weekends so you can save alot if you are there on
      weekdays.

        Same as below...

        I visited the Falls last year...good time. Everything is pretty accessible...I would recommend parking your car in the lot near the Falls. Maid of the Mist was enjoyable...the lift down/up the stairs is perhaps the longest & slowest I've ever had the joy of riding, but it's worth it. The falls are illuminated for a portion of the evening...I regrettably missed that. We also made a quick trip to Buffalo while we were in the area...easily accessible with lots of good places to eat.

          Hotel

          I HIGHLY recommend the Fallsview Marriott on the Canadian side.

          They have great packages (i.e. free breakfast and $75 coupon towards dinner at their 5 star restaurant. Great food.) The staff is excellent! The w/c access room is set-up perfectly and has a GREAT view of the falls. The falls are illuminated at night. It's VERY romantic. My girlfriend and I loved it. Lots to see and do.

            After re-reading your post I thought I should mention the hotel I stayed in. It was the Super 8 on Ferry Rd. The W/C room was large with two double beds. Indoor and outdoor pools. (indoor not accessible due to steps.) H/C parking near the rear door. Pancake restaraut right next door. The bathroom in W/C room is huge (tub no, wheel-in shower). A cheap place to stay if you just want to see the local sights.

                    We are going to Niagara this year. Just wanted to know if any of the new folks had any recommendations.

                      Fallsview Marriott on the Canadian side is the hotel i've stayed. It was Pre SCI. It was at 4th of July a few years back.

                        Right now it is a toss up between Fallsview Marriot and The Oakes Hotel.

                          Hi Pat,
                          Last summer we stayed at The Old Stone Inn..nice place and close to the falls, but on top of the hill so it was easy with my chair. Plus, it was fairly inexpensive. Good food in the restaurant, but we had to eat in the lounge 'cause no ramp to the restaurant--cheaper in the lounge, though--they had a special lounge only menu.

                          Have fun,
                          Sue
