The different fallsviews of Niagara Falls explained

For the view it’s generally better the closer the fallsview hotel is to the Niagara Falls. Simply put, the closer you are to the falls the better look you get.

However, Niagara Falls consists not by one but of three falls. These are the American Falls, the Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe Falls. So there is not one spot to be closest to, but three.

Different locations offer different views with different pros and cons. Which angle you prefer is highly subjective. But, a close unobstructed view of the Niagara Falls is better than an obstructed view from further away.

As the Niagara fallsview hotels are somewhat spread out and there are three falls the hotels can be divided into three different Niagara fallsview hotel groups based on their location. These groups are American Falls Hotels, American and Horseshoe Falls Hotels and Horseshoe Falls Hotels.

Continue reading to find out the characteristics of each group and which fallsview hotels that offer the best view. You find a map showing the three Niagara Falls fallsview locations below.

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 as if you stay on a hotel near the Horseshoe Falls.

American and Horseshoe Falls Hotels

Hilton Niagara Falls/Fallsview Hotel & Suites and Four Points by Sheraton are not closest to either the American Falls or 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 Horseshoe Falls that no other hotel can offer. So this is the best Niagara Falls hotel option if you prefer a mix of the American Falls and Horseshoe Falls rather than a close view of one of them.

Horseshoe Falls Hotels

In the last category of hotels near the Horseshoe Falls 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. These hotels are all near the Horseshoe Falls but also relatively far away from the American Falls. It’s in this group of hotels near the Horseshoe Falls where you find the Niagara Falls hotels that are located closest 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 near the Horseshoe Falls offer somewhat different views even though they are located close to each other.
