Niagara Falls hotel categories
Niagara Falls fallsview hotel locations.

American Falls Hotels

Crowne Plaza and Sheraton on the Falls Hotel are the two hotels that are located closest to the American Falls. This means that the views they offer over the American Falls are the best there is. And they also offer amazing views for the nightly light shows and fireworks.

However, have in mind that both hotels are much further away from the American Falls than the hotels in the category Horseshoe Falls Hotels are from the Horseshoe Falls. So even though the view is the best there is over the American Falls you don’t get the very same close view here.

American and Horseshoe Falls Hotels

Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites and Four Points by Sheraton are not closest to either American Falls or the Horseshoe Falls. Still, their location should be differentiated from the other hotels as it creates a unique fallsview. Because here you have a nice angle to view both the American Falls and the Horseshoe Falls that no other hotel can offer. So this is the best Niagara Falls hotel option if you prefer a mix of both falls rather than a close view of one of them.

Horseshoe Falls Hotels

In the last category of hotels there are Oakes Hotel, Tower Hotel, Embassy Suites, Marriott Niagara Falls Hotel Fallsview & Spa, Radisson Hotel & Suites Fallsview Niagara Falls and lastly Marriott on the Falls. They are all relatively close to the Horseshoe Falls but also relatively far away from the American Falls. This group of hotels is where you should look for the best Niagara Falls hotel if you want to be as close as possible to the falls.

The further north the hotel is located the more the angle allows you to have a view into the horseshoe bend of the waterfall. So all Niagara fallsview hotels in this group offer somewhat different views even though they are located close to each other.
