NIAGARA FALLS, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 04/28/14 -- Niagara Falls has gone from being an attractive honeymoon destination to being one of the most attractive destinations in the world, period. (And yes, that still includes honeymoons.) According to MSN Travel, in fact, Niagara Falls takes the No. 5 position among the world's best tourist spots, outranking Disneyworld and the Louvre, among many others, and causing travelers everywhere to give this natural wonder a second look.
Considering MSN's top four destinations all reside within the U.S., Niagara Falls is Canada's de facto No. 1 attraction. And there's no better way to see it than from TripAdvisor's No. 1 hotel, the Niagara Falls Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa.
Unique among five-star Niagara Falls hotels, this property is closer than any other to the Falls, and it has the views to prove it. Whether visitors opt for a Fallsview guest room with a whirlpool, a family Fallsview suite or the last word in luxury, the Presidential Suite, they can look forward to accommodations that marry luxury with vistas not found anywhere else. The mighty force of the Falls becomes a dramatic backdrop to rooms equipped with features not found in other luxury Niagara Falls hotels, like sumptuous new beds, designer duvets and down comforters. Coffeemakers and mini-refrigerators provide practical advantages, while nightly illuminations over the Falls and even fireworks lend a magical quality to the experience.
Of course, this hotel in Niagara Falls offers more than spectacular accommodations. Visitors can indulge in a full range of treatments and packages at the hotel's Serenity Spa By The Falls. Or they can grab liquid energy at the on-site Starbucks before embarking on a helicopter tour of the Falls, exploring nearby wineries or even braving the elements on a Maid of the Mist voyage. Plus the hotel's 10,000 square feet of versatile event space makes it ideal for even, yes, Niagara Falls Ontario wedding venues. The Falls may have evolved, after all, to become a year-round hot spot, but some things stay the same, and this property is ideally positioned to ensure that everyone can enjoy its diverse aspects.
