NIAGARA FALLS, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- As of June 28th, 2014 Courtyard Niagara Falls is excited to share its newest -- and most unique -- Niagara tour. The Niagara by Night Tour incorporates history and local oddities of the area into the majesty of the Falls -- all while the sun begins to slip beneath the horizon. Hosted by the hotel's on-site tour company -- Above The Falls Tours -- the Niagara by Night Tour surprises guests with the perfect pairing of the hair-raising and the breathtaking.
A top choice when considering hotels near Niagara Falls, Canada, Courtyard Niagara Falls is a leader in finding innovative ways to present its natural wonder to guests. The Niagara by Night Tour is another step in that direction. Every Saturday night starting at 7:30PM, the tour begins with the Battlefield and Beyond Cemetery Walk, which takes place in the famous Drummond Hill Cemetery. A name gleaned from the breadth of information shared, guests will be regaled with tales of famous and bloody battles that took place on the grounds, like renowned "Battle of Lundy's Lane," and then explore deeper stories of the famous or infamous people buried there. As guests enter through the legendary iron gates of Drummond Hill at dusk, they'll notice names like Laura Secord, a famous Daredevil, or Burr Plato, one the first African American slaves to escape to Canada via the Underground Railroad, and many more shadowed eerily on tombstones throughout their dusk-lit stroll.
Courtyard Niagara Falls prides itself on bringing its guests a more intimate experience with the Falls than any other Niagara Falls hotels. That is where the second half of their Niagara by Night Tour succeeds most. The Hornblower Niagara Falls Illumination Cruise begins as darkness starts to descend over the waters. Aboard a 250-passenger catamaran guests cruise past both the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls while starlight shimmers overhead and the coloured illumination of the falls plays off of the water for a dazzling sight sure to inspire and astonish.
Whether travellers just need a Niagara Falls hotel near a casino, are passing through for business, are on their way further north, or seeking out the Falls for an awe-inspiring vision, Courtyard Niagara Falls has accommodations for all, and a new tour that guests won't soon forget. The experience created by this 4-star hotel in Niagara Falls is so unique in its content, its local perspective, its wealth of knowledge, and its frightfulness followed by life-affirming natural beauty, that Courtyard has truly set itself apart in the rarefied air of Niagara Falls.

We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
