Sterling Inn & Spa

5195 Magdalen St., Niagara Falls, Ontario, L2G 3S6, Canada

Unique among the chain options in Niagara Falls is this boutique hotel in a converted 1930s milk factory—hence the bottle-shaped building face. Rooms are large, at 500 to 700 square feet, and individually decorated in an urban "modern bachelor" style, with dark-laminate flooring, black leather sofas, and punches of red in modern paintings on the white walls and in oversized gas or electric fireplaces. Bathrooms are luxurious, with either a steam shower or Jacuzzi, and a full spa is on-site. It's a find in Niagara Falls, especially because free parking, Internet, and breakfast (in bed) are included. The only catch is that it's not within sight of the falls, and rooms have parking-lot views.
