If you have ever wanted to stay overnight near the Niagara Falls, now is your chance. The Marriott Gateway on the falls is located just 200 yards from the precipice of the famous falls and is a world famous five-star, green-certified hotel. It is right next to the Niagara Fallsview Casino and is right across the street from the Scotiabank Convention Center. The 40,000 square foot hotel sports 405 spacious rooms decked out in luxury.

Niagara Falls is one of the most visited natural wonders in the world, as the falls are situated along the Niagara River between the United States state of New York and Canadian Province of Ontario. It is hard to describe to the average listener the thrill of being so close to the falls as they cascade 160 feet into the basin below. Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side, is the most powerful waterfall on the North American continent.

Start your mornings out right with a hearty breakfast at the Fallsview Cafe, with a vivid view of the falls, as you start the day with a sumptuous ala carte and hot breakfast menu. Take a trip by the omelet station and load up on fresh fruit, pastries, yogurt and all the hot breakfast items of your choice.

For lunch and dinner, enjoy the cozy atmosphere of the Fallsview Milestones Grill & Bar, while again, being mesmerized by a view of hotels in niagara falls while you eat, enjoy an international cuisine and relax between events of the day, or enjoy a quiet evening dinner.

For a different flavor, try the Great Room Lounge and Bar for a drink, or a bite during the day. Lunch and dinner are offered, and the relaxing atmosphere is sure to be the ideal meeting place for family and friends.

You will not want to miss the Serenity Spa by the Falls, located in the Marriott, where you can bathe yourself in their specialty rejuvenating treatments and services. A great way to relax, and enjoy the men's as well as the women's services.

Of course, you will want to take the tour of the thundering Niagara Falls themselves, as the experienced tour guides take you around the different viewpoints on both the American side and the Canadian sides of the falls. The overwhelming sensation of the roaring water pouring over the precipice to the rocks below is a sight you will never forget.
