Sterling Inn & Spa Review

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.

    An Oasis in Niagara Falls!

    The tourist area of Niagara Falls can be quite the assault on your senses, so having a quiet, dignified haven to retreat to is very welcome! The Sterling Inn is modern, clean, sleek but comfortable, an oasis in the chaos! Definitely upscale, its décor can be zen-like but accessible. The rooms are large with all the amenities you would expect. The bathroom was a little frustrating in not having a lot of counter space, more about design than function. Even in June, the little gas fireplace was used on a cold rainy night! There’s no view at all, so this isn’t the place if you must look out over the Falls. The walk can be challenging for some folks up and down a very steep hill, but I found it worth it for the ambience. We didn’t have time to try the spa or the restaurant, but I would expect them to be in line with the rest of the facility – excellent quality. I found the price to be very reasonable for the type of hotel it is, so I would highly recommend Sterling Inn for mature and quiet couples visiting the Niagara area.
