“Great package deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2011

My wife and I stepped into our 11th floor room and were amazed that we immeadiately noted the great view of the falls. Our package included 2 breakfasts, 2 $50 comps at the Seneca Niagara Casino on the New York side, a great dinner for two, tours and tastings at 4 nearby winerys. We booked thru an internet site but the package is also available at the hotel.
Our cost may have been less due to seasonal timing. For example, the Maid of the Mist tour was closed until next year. We were able to walk to the Falls and enjoyed the proximity of the Falls Incline Rail Ride considering the cool and damp weather. Also, Fallsview Casino is about 2 blocks away and we tried it out, too. Apparently every room has a front view of the falls.

Room Tip: The higher the better the view

Jacuzzi was not too clean, no complaints otherwise wrt cleanliness. We took one of the weekend packages (Gourmet Package I think) that included wine tasting to four wineries, breakfast at the onsite Applebees (just ok) and one dinner at their steakhouse (good food). Great value, especially since our room had an amazing view of both the Canadian and American Falls, just ensure you ask for it.

We stayed as part of a travelzoo package that included dinner at Remmington's, breakfast, wine tastings, and wifi. The room was clean and comfortable, with a great view of the falls (11th floor). For $130 it was a decent deal and we had a good time. There were three drawbacks, two major and one minor:

1. We were woken up at 7:45am by an exceptionally loud noise coming from our ceiling that sounded like construction drilling and continued sporadically for 45 minutes. Maintenance said was probably rattling pipes from the shower above us. So no sleeping in.

2. The "$50 casino credit" specified in the travelzoo deal is NOT for the Fallsview Casino next door, but for the Senica Casino across the river in New York State! Looking now, this is mentioned on the hotel website among other package deals but definitely was not mentioned on the package we bought. We didn't bring our passports, so no free chips.

3. The hotel room lacked a fridge and there were < 15 TV channels.

Room Tip: Falls were definitely visible from 11th floor and above.

My husband and I stayed at the Oakes during the summer. It had a magnificent view of the Horseshoe Falls (the best Falls) and we also enjoyed a good view of the American Falls. We were fortunate enough to be there on a night where they had fireworks over the Falls---I was just disappointed that the fireworks didn't last long.

If I had to say anything negative about the hotel it would be that the air-conditioning in our room did not work and that we had to pay for wireless internet.

Room Tip: -make sure that you specify you want a room on the 9th floor or above so you have a good view of the...

Purchased the "Gourmet Package" off the Internet. For the price you can't go wrong. In checking in, while waiting, used the rest room and became a little concerned because it was not the cleanest I have ever seen but we were pleasantly surprised by our room. It was clean and beautifully appointed. THE VIEW WAS OUTSTANDING!!! The package was well worth the price. Would definitely stay again, but from the reviews,take the time and ask for a falls view room. We were on the 11th floor and felt the view was better than that on the 14th floor.

Our room was nice and very big although check in took quite a while. The bathroom was rather small but we managed. From our room we had an amazing clear view of the falls. The hotel does have a pool-if you can call it that. The pool was so small it was not even worth attempting to use it as the water did not look very clean either which was some what a let down. To get right up close to the falls it is quite a walk from the hotel and it is rather difficult on a hot summers day. There are also lots of steep hills which you should be wary of if travelling with a disabled person.

My boyfriend and I were looking for a decent hotel to stay at for our romantic getaway and were quite impressed with this hotel. We booked our package with Travel Zoo, which was a great deal of $179 for 2 nights, including wine tasting, 2 free breakfasts at AppleBees, 1 free dinner at Remmingtons, and 2 $50 vouchers for Seneca Casino...which is actually only available in the USA, we were unable to use :( We were quite impressed with how comfortable the king size bed was and how quiet the hotel was during our stay. We were a little disappointed with the slow service at Apple Bees for breakfast. We were on the 7th floor and the view from that level was pretty good but if you are looking for an excellent view of the falls then I would suggest staying on levels 11 and up. The location of the hotel is excellent! Falls-view Casino is within a 5 minute walk and there is alot of decent restaurants nearby as well. For our second dinner we chose, Romano's Macaroni Grill, which is located at the Hilton Hotel. Was very impressed with our dinner! Decent Italian food :) I would definitely go back sometime to the same hotel because the price was right! Hope you can enjoy your stay as we did :)

Room Tip: I would suggest upgrading to a King size bed and a higher level for a better view of the falls.
