Fallsview hotel question

We will be staying in NFalls for a family celebration near the end of the month and have narrowed our accommodation choices to the Marriott, Sheraton or Embassy Suites. All are basically in the same location, appear to provide comparable amenities and are in the same price range for a view room.

I'd welcome any pros/cons/observations regarding these properties that will help with an informed choice. Otherwise we toss the coin! Thx.

I have stayed at the Fallsview Marriott and the room was breathtaking! We had a room on the 15th floor, I think, with a view of the falls. I recall the bathroom being very spacious as well. The room had floor to ceiling windows, making it feel like we were sitting right at the falls. The hotel is lovely and the staff was great. I can't recommend the Marriott enough!

To be fair, I have never stayed at the other hotels you have listed.

Hi Bert-

I stayed in the Sheraton at Niagara Falls a while ago, and it was great: nice room overlooking the Falls, lovely brunch on Sunday (the dining room overlooks the Falls too), and a reasonable rate.

I haven't stayed in the others, but I have no complaints about the Sheraton.

Have fun, wherever you decide to stay!

I've stayed at the Sheraton and recommend it highly. Close friends have stayed at the Marriott and had many compliments on the hotel and staff. Don't have any insights on the Embassy Suites.

Have a great trip.

Note that there are two Sheratons.

The Sheraton Fallsview is just behind Horseshoe Falls.

The Sheraton On The Falls, is opposite the American Falls (and Maid of the Mist) with straight on views to Horseshoe Falls.

In my opinion, the Sheraton On The Falls has the better view AND location.

To get to the Sheraton Fallsview (and the Marriott which is nearby) from the falls, you must hike up a steep hill, or walk to the Incline Railway and pay to ride, and it has limited hours.

I appreciate all the insights shared. We are fairly familiar with NFalls and have seen (the outside at least) of all properties, so guess we'll call and base our choice on amenities etc. I believe the Embassy has a refrig/micro/coffeemaker bar, an additional separate sitting room for early risers, plus includes an extended continental breakfast so that may be the deciding factor.

Murray Hill is still pretty messed up I believe with casino construction, so we hadn't planned on using it anyway. If we have time and the weather is nice Clifton Hill is always an "amusing" walk, otherwise we may just grab the car and do a few wineries we haven't explored yet as we've done the falls walk many times. Thanks again.
