Historical Traveller Reviews of Marriott Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotel & Spa

t Waste Time with Other Locations

from PekingDuck
We stayed at the Marriott Falls View. We were on floor 10 in their "family" room with a falls view. If you are planning on going to Niagara I wouldn't waste money on other locations. It would be impossible to beat this hotel's location. Our big issue was keeping our 9 and 10 year old from killing each other as to whom got the room which looked out over the falls (one room was a sitting room with a pull out couch which looked over the falls. The other room was a bedroom with two queens but no view). I looked at vairous sites to get the room YOU MUST DO THIS since the 10th floor family room only showed up on Orbitz

First Class Tourist Trap

from A TripAdvisor Member
A total gyp. I cashed in points as a silver member of their rewards club to reserve two rooms. I was told after I got there that the rooms were corner rooms with no view; in other words the worst rooms the hotel had to offer. They told me that as a SILVER member of the rewards program, I could upgrade for just another $100 CND per room to get rooms with a view. With a tired family at my heals I paid it.

Expensive valet parking for guests where other hotels have free parking. In the rooms, $8.00 a for a bottle of water, $5.99 bags of coffee for the in-room coffee maker along with an entire tray of other, assorted, hugely expensive goodies.

Prices throughout, almost silly for anyone. Great view, comfortable rooms, but you will pay dearly for it.

Clearly a great rewards club too.

Absolutely Beautiful/Romantic View :)

from A TripAdvisor Member
For a romantic getaway, we drove up to Niagara Falls for a night. After reviewing all the hotel recommendations on tripadvisors.com, I decided on the Marriott Niagara Falls Fallsview. It was one of the best decision I ever made. When we walked into our room, we couldn't believe the view. It is breath-taking. If you can afford it, definitely book the FALLSVIEW Jacuzzi Fireplace Suite (higher floor, the better). Make sure it has the 2 person jacuzzi. The rooms are very clean and modern.
The jacuzzi is huge and also has a view of the falls. There is also a little seating area right in front of the window with a fireplace where we spent our time outside of the jacuzzi. You can actually hear the falls!!! Finally, we pulled ourselves from the amazing view and checked out the town. I recommend you purchase a shuttle pass from the hotel (First of all, the hotel staff was very helpful) to get around town (kids are free). Walking down along the falls should be everyones first destination. Night time is great because they light up the falls.
Marriott drops you off near the horseshoe and you can walk along the falls until you reach Clifton Hills Road. Clifton Hills is mainly the tourist destination with a street full of rides, bars, restaurants, gift shops and museums. If you are with kids, they'll love it! After a night out, we ended up staying up all night and watching the sunrise!
Very romantic. The next morning, we found a tourist package that included Maid of the Mist (amazing), The Butterfly Conservatory (amazing), Walking under the falls (cool) and the River Rapids (nice).
The package will cost less that $30 a person but will last the entire day. Well worth it!!! Overall, it was an mini-vacation I will always remember.

Very Romantic

from A TripAdvisor Member
Spent one romantic night getaway at the Marriott Fallview. Our room overlooked the Falls. The view was awesome!!!! At night the lights on the falls and the fireworks were a sight we will never forget. The room was beautiful, the jacuzzi added that extra romantic touch. The continental breakfast was delicious with fantastic omelets individually made by an expert chef. A huge selection of breakfast foods made breakfast a terrific beginning to a new day! And service, GREAT!

Could have been better

from A TripAdvisor Member
My husband and I just returned from a 2 night stay in the King Bed jacuzzi suite. Be warned these beds are extremely soft. We called the desk one day as there was only one washcloth in the room and never did get any more. When we inquired about the breakfast buffet we were informed it was $54 for two. An in-room movie is $13.99. Overall the stay was fine but I wouldn't advise it unless you bring alot of extra cash or a high limit credit card. Definately not a place for a couple on a budget. I visited Toronto in May and for the travel dollar that city has alot more to recommend it.

Loved the hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just stayed at the Marriott August 2003. The hotel was wonderful. The rooms were beautiful. Had a 2 room suite with jacuzzi and the view was spectacular. Breakfast was great but did not eat dinner there. Would recommend friends to stay there.

you can do better

from A TripAdvisor Member
1) Area is completely under construction, walking to the fall with children was a dangerous event.

2) bought two nigth stay package. Went with 2 adults, and children 8, 11 and 14. even with the free breackfast vouchers we paid over $40 + tip for breakfast. Truely nothing special.

3) never did use the $75 dinner voucher. after figuring what the kids would order, it was cheeper to go to Rainforest cafe. We found no Value in the two day package.

4) Did the guided tour. It was pricey, but, we went in front of every standing line and saw alot of things in 5 hours. Not a bad value.

5) Got the suite on the 5th floor. The view would definately be better on the upper floors.

6) The pool was small and cloudy. The hot tubs were very foamy, indicating a lack of cleanliness. The steam sauna was not working. Even though the weather was in the 90's, We never did go swimming due to the lack of hygene.

7) BIGGEST COMPLAINT : Due to power outages we were considering staying an additional night. the room we stayed in for $279 to $299 canadan for three nights. The same room that booked in advance would be $299 to $329 canadain for the friday night. Was offered with great attitude for a mere $499/night. The attitude was "if you don't like it, you're free to move". WE WILL NEVER RETURN TO THIS HOTEL.

What a view!

from Singo
Stayed 4 nights at the Marriott Fallsview and even after that time I still couldn't get over the view. We had a Jacuzzi suite on a high floor. Room and decor were perfect and cleaning staff did an excellent job. In the Jacuzzi suites there is a large (2 person Jacuzzi) separate shower, bedroom area with TV, mini bar etc and a separate sitting area with a second TV and a huge picture window overlooking the falls. Neat little touch is the vent below the window which can be opened to let the sound of the falls in. Although the hotel is overlooks the falls it was difficult to get down to them as the funicular railway the serves this end of town wasn't funning when we were there. The hotel had this covered though, as a shuttle bus runs frequently and for a small one off change you can ride it all week. The bus also visits the downtown malls, the current casino (a new one is being built just down the road from the hotel) and entertainment area of Clifton hill. Very much recommended.

Beyond the beauty of the falls

from Hallin
Thanks to the reviews listed here, our family too decided to stay at the Marriott Fallsview from July 27-29. Our check-in was a breeze however the valet was very upset that we would not allow him to move our car a block away to the parking lot. Parking was $20. a day which seemed a bit much for parking in a field. Our first impression of the fallsview room was a BIG WOW! Our children sat in the 2 comfortable chairs in the window and enjoyed the view. I couldn't wait to sit in the window! The room was very clean and had the most comfortable matresses I have even slept on in a hotel and 3 nice (but small) pillows per bed. We brought along our ice chest due to the lack of refrigerators in the rooms. We always pack a box of Frosted Cherrios, milk, and juice for our in-room breakfast. I am certainly glad we did!
A bowl of cereal, juice, and muffin was over $10. CND delievered to your room. Our check-in was 2:30 PM which gave us time to visit Table Rock (Journey Behind the Falls) directly below our hotel window. We took the Incline railroad down the cliff from the hotel ($2.10 USD) and had to wait 2 hours for our tour. Journey Behind the Falls was awesome.
We ate an early bird special ($16. USD) at Table Rock. Couldn't get any closer to the Canadian Falls. Food was great. We returned to the hotel by walking up the cliff via street a few blocks away. Street was torn up, sidewalks only half there( had to walk in the street at times)a total mess and endangerment to anyone walking. Not a good impression!
My children were anxious to find the Marriott's swimming pool. It was located on the lower level in a small enclosed area. The cold, cloudy, dirty pool was about the size of our backyard pool. Not much room for anyone in a hotel this size. (My daughter wanted to stay at the Hilton because of the nice falls pool but I overruled due to the view). There were 2 hot whirlpools that felt good and a sauna. The steam room didn't have any steam our second night. The next morning I asked the Information Desk the best way to get to Maid of the Mist and was told I should sign up for their tour for the hotel tour (over $100.) which includes Table Rock, Maid of Mist, Spanish Aero Cable Car. I opted for a shuttle bus ($9.00/per CND) that transported us to the Cassino and had to walk down the hill to Maid of Mist. We were told to exchange currency inside the Cassino. Children are not allowed and in fact were yelled at by some cassino attendant when they stood outside with my wife waiting for me to exchange currency. Maid of the Mist was the greatest plessure of the entire trip. No wait in lines that morning.
Ate lunch at Maid of Mist restaurant (not too good but edible). We hiked the Clifton Hill to the cassino and returned to the hotel. We were told we had to drive to the Cable Car as it was 5 km away. This was an 1.5 hour wait. Our timed tickets were for 4:24 PM but were informed People Mover tours had preferred places on the cable car and we filled in after they boarded. My children were placed in the middle row and would not be able to see with people standing in front of them.
Ride attendant was unconcerned but a bit flustered when I took my family off the ride and told him I would wait for a ride my children could see the view. Afterall, we too paid money to ride. Ride attendant was very indignant and finally 2 very nice people in the front row of the cable car, moved to the center row so my children could stand in front and see. P.S. the ride was not worth going on in the end. Only one cable car ran at a time and was 10 min. across and back. Would also recommend eating at the Minolta tower for lunch. Nice view and more resonable priced lunches. Would have liked to try the Skylon, but didn't have the time. Two nights was more than enough time for our family. Not much excitement other than looking at the falls. Probably will never return again.

Loved the view

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned after spending 3 nights at this beautiful hotel. The view was spectacular. We were on the 7th floor and really had a front row seat to the nightly illumination of the falls and also the nightly fireworks. Room and bathroom very clean. Extremely comfortable beds!!
Staff were friendly and very accommodating. Will definitely return!!

Top Local Tips for Niagara Falls

cheap family meal Need a cheap meal? Try Pizza Pizza. For less than $30 CAN we got two large pizzas, 4 cans of pop, 10 piece BBQ wings, and garlic bread sticks. We ate this for 3+ meals and saved a lot of money.

Maximize your voucher Split an entree (at the Marriott Fallsview). Remember that taxes come to about $10 on a $75 bill. Some suggest roomservice. We found the dining room, service, food quality, and dinner view to be worth using the voucher this way instead.

Tips I wish I knew before hand We arrived in the evening and didn't run into any traffic, but we left on a Sunday morning and it took us a hour to get across the border (only 1/4 of a mile). So, if you can try to avoid leaving on a Sunday morning. Park at The Casino for free with one of the players cards. You have to see "Journey behind the Falls", it's great and a must do.
