The closest hotel to Niagara Falls

The Oakes Hotel Overlooking the Falls is the closest hotel to the spectacular Horseshoe Falls so you're guaranteed a great view. If you can, opt for the upgraded fallsview rooms but even in the lower room categories, you can use the hotels 14th floor falls observatory lounge for fantastic panoramic vistas. Be sure to look out for the almost constant rainbow created by the water spray - it's a sight to behold.

Stay and Pay


The hotel is in a wonderful location. Our room overlooked the Falls. The room, itself,, was clean and comfortable, with all the usual amenities. Can't ask for more in a hotel room. All this was accompanied by fees, fees, fees. Several taxes and fees (optional area improvement tax is mandatory here), resort fee, and heavy overnight parking rate make the quoted rate increase by about 50%. Beware of this, or at least, make sure you understand it when you reserve. Other than that, it was a great stay, and we would recommend the Oakes Hotel.
