Staff was very friendly, building was extremely well kept, however we were quoted 260 as our price but there were a few unknown add ons that took our bill to 280.

I liked it as it was close to everything to walk to but did not like you haves to pay for parking. The Hot tub was disappointing as it was cold and so was the pool water. Staff was friendly.

Excellent hotel by water and Niagara Center

Pros: beds, pillows, very clean, the pool and workout room
Cons: Nothing needed improved during our stay.
Location: Niagara Center (Sabres), waterfront, train stop outside. Restaurant/sports bar across the street as well as Tim Hortons.
This newer hotel is in excellent shape, with friendly helpful staff. There is only valet parking on the premises. Very clean with large rooms. The beds and pillows were very comfortable! The train line on Main stops right outside the hotel. Close to the water and right across the street from 716 and the Niagara Center. There is a bar in the hotel and room service available (although we didn't use either, or the housekeeping service). Excellent choice!

Late to Start

Pros: The rooms were outstanding and the furnishings were over the top.
Cons: The rooms should have been ready as advertised, and the dining area was not finished yet. When this is completed it should be a five star location.
Location: We stayed here because of the easy access to the Niagara Center which was a quick walk down the street and near many places to eat as well.
We arrived at the Hotel a little before check in, which was 3:00 p.m. but there was a line waiting for rooms so it wasn't until 3:45 when the 1st room was ready. We then waited until 4:45 before the 2nd room was ready. The rooms were awesome, not a complaint there but the wait was too long as we were on a limited schedule. We were supposed to be compensated for the delays but as of yet it hasn't happened.
