We spent the night of Sunday, June 23, at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Niagara Falls, Canada. Our hotel accommodation was a room on the 37th floor, with a great view of both the American and Horseshoe waterfalls.
We spent our entire stay at or near the hotel. We did not walk alongside the falls. We have visited the falls so many times over the years. It was nice for one time NOT to be among the crowd of people at the falls. We had lovely views of the falls, though, from our room as well as from a walkway between our hotel and the Fallsview Casino Resort.
The incline railway is currently being upgraded. When the incline reopens, it will be enclosed and passengers will be able to ride it year round.
The pedestrian bridge crosses over Murray Street. We enjoyed the view of the American Falls, while standing on this bridge.
We returned to our room, after our walk. I went straight to the window overlooking the falls.
A manager’s reception was included as part of our hotel package. After a short rest in our room, we rode the elevator to the 9th floor, where the reception was held. We enjoyed complimentary alcoholic beverages and snacks. We didn’t eat too many snacks, as we planned to go straight to dinner from the manager’s reception. We ate dinner at TGI Friday’s, which was located in the hotel on the lobby level. Bob ordered a fish dinner; I ordered a chicken dinner. We both enjoyed our meals. The portions were hearty, so another walk was in order after dinner.
When we returned to the hotel, night was beginning to fall.
At 10:00 pm we enjoyed a fireworks display from the comfort of our room.
Neither Bob nor I had seen fireworks over the falls before. The sight is something we will not forget!
Fireworks displays are held, weather permitting, at 10:00 pm every Friday, Sunday and on select holidays through Sunday, September 1st.
I will share one last photograph with you. This is the view that greeted me, when I opened the curtain on Monday morning.
What an enchanting view to wake up to!
Before checking out of our hotel on Monday morning, we enjoyed a complimentary hot breakfast. We had a choice of made-to-order omelets or a variety of selections from the buffet. Breakfast was very good and made even better because we sat alongside a floor-to-ceiling window with a view of the falls.
We crossed over Rainbow Bridge into New York. Our hotel package included $50.00 free slot play at the Seneca Niagara Casino. It wasn’t our lucky day; however, we didn’t spend any of our own money playing the slots.
What a nice night away, one that I hope to repeat some day in the future!
