The staff was friendly from the moment we arrived.The location was great.Our room was beautiful.
The only thing is I wish you didn't have to pay for parking it should be included.
The restaurant was also beautiful with a awesome view but I didn't like my breakfast.
I would go back in a heart beat,The lobby staff was excellent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LaurenLou358 Good hotel with a few issues
My family just finished up a 6 day trip from Georgia to Canada, and we stayed at this hotel on nights 2 and 3.
Front desk/check in/check out: This was actually the highlight of the hotel for us. We dealt mostly with Trevor, and he was wonderful: friendly, courteous, and beyond helpful. While we were in the hotel, a pipe burst in a hotel room, necessitating shutting off the water to several rooms, ours included. Trevor made sure to call us to let us know the situation, and he also called when the water was available again.
Room: The room (2 double beds), as other reviewers have noted, was quite small, as well as the bathroom. This is to be expected since it is a historic hotel. However, it was quite a squeeze for 4 people. I would not choose this hotel again for a family trip for this reason. Saying that, the tiled bathroom and porcelain tub were beautiful and made you feel like you were not in just another hotel. There was no AC in the room, which led us to feeling quite warm during the day.....but we're from Georgia, so we might be too used to AC. We had been upgraded to a Fallsview room on the 9th floor for being Platinum members, and the view was beautiful!
In room amenities: I disliked not having a fridge available.
Cleanliness of room: Room was sparkly clean.
Hotel amenities: The indoor heated pool was wonderful after a long drive. We loved the tiled pool area set up, with main pool, kiddie pool, and jacuzzi. There was also a wash-off shower and a sauna. The pools and jacuzzi were an excellent temperature and very clean. Pool towels were abundant.
Parking: Parking was $25 (or $20?) per night in a garage connected to the hotel. We found this quite reasonable for a tourist destination.
Extras: The complimentary bottle of wine on our first night was wonderful! The hotel atmosphere and ambience cannot be beat.
Misc: There is a huge renovation going on on Floor 3, which is also the Pool floor. It was a little uncomfortable dodging carpet rolls whenever we went to the Pool.

The view from our room was like a post card, so much so that we spent a few hours just watching the lights changing the color of the ice, snow and water of the falls. Looking forward to our next chance to spend more time at this hotel.

Excellent location, excellent staff, excellent restaurant
But...despite its obvious historic charm, the hotel desperately needs updating. Walls are paper thin -- be careful what you say because your neighbors will hear everything.
The rooms are average at best, even the executive rooms.
I'd recommend staying at the Sheraton next door instead.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarloB 1st Time at Crowne Plaza - Excellent Experience
This was our first time at the Crowne Plaza, and it won't be our last. From the friendly staff at the check-in counter to the room service, it was an excellent experience. The room was so perfect. Extremely clean and comfortable. Such a beautiful hotel. Loved all the old pictures of Niagara Falls all over.
Will definitely stay there again for our next trip to the Falls.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dancedad27 Room needs some attention
The bathroom door "whined" terribly and our clock couldn't keep time at all, it would be 2 hours ahead, then 1 hour behind.
The bathroom was very small, and the toilet was a little too close to the wall.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by festeleft Older historied hotel with connections to modern fun
This is an older hotel and the walls seemed thinner (more noise) than I've observed with newer hotels. The historic feel, however, is a plus with all the old annotated photos educating on the history of the hotel and the region.
The location at the bottom of the walk from the rainbow bridge up to the horseshoe falls is great. The view out the window was wonderful with the outlook on the American falls and the (head turned) view up to the horseshoe falls.
The restaurant had excellent food and service but the ambiance was a little lacking with the breakfast buffet tables pushed out to one side.
The pool is deep enough to swim lengths but shallow enough to comfort worried parents. There is a also a small splash pool and hot hot tub.
The connected access to the watermark (big plus for my family) and nearby stores, restaurants and other attractions is handy when visiting on a glum weather weekend as we did.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Live 24 Don't think I would stay again
Great service but rooms not great. They are on the small side and they claim that they have soft comfortable beds but mine was quite hard. Room was clean and they have been updated but toilets are very old and loud. We had a view of the parking garage and we heard a lot of honking during our stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ryan11245 Average. Parking is terrible.
Small rooms. View from our side room was only visible through a window in the corner of the room. Parking is shared with the casino customers and as such is very busy. Also, it requires two separate elevators to go from your car to your room which we found to be an inconvenience as well as being packed with other guests.
I also was put off this hotel by the "resort" and parking fees which increases the price of the room by over 30%.They should pay the guests for the aggravation of parking here.
The hotel lobby area was clean and impressive with staff that were courteous however, I would not stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by jooles Great view of the Falls
My son and I stayed for one night, for his first trip to the Falls. I can't think of a single thing that bothered me about the trip. Our room was ready early and we'd been upgraded to a room with a great view. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable (a little small but it is an older hotel and for one night, wasn't a concern at all) and my son was very taken with the carpet in the lobby area.
I'd stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TorTagFam Great March Break Family Trip
We booked a "package" for our family over the March Break, and it was a great value. So much included: magic show, water park, brunch, arcade activities. Plus, you can't beat this location for access to the Falls, Bird Kingdom (highly recommend) or Clifton Hill. Our room was small, as you would expect from an old, characterful hotel, but the beds were comfortable. The bathroom was tiny and may have had some original fixtures, but everything worked well and it was clean. One problem was that our room was very hot, despite what the in-room thermostat/control told us, and we had to leave the window open all night. Perhaps because we live in an old house and value character, none of the problems with this hotel was an issue for us, and we would go back again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SAinTO Not worth the money.
We purchased the "ultimate couples package" and intended on staying for two nights (Friday and Saturday), the package seemed like a good value and from what we could tell this was an upscale hotel so we were looking forward to it. When we arrived, we were told that we could upgrade to a Fallsview executive room for an extra $-- per night - we said yes to that. Then we saw the room...
We were give room 1207 (I believe), and told it was on the special "executive floor", but I can't see how it was different from any other floor, but for the fact that it didn't have an ice machine so I had to go back down to floor 9 to get ice. We were told "floor to ceiling windows" which is a very generous way of putting what is actually in that room. The door to the room itself doesn't open all the way, we barely got our suitcase through. The room is SMALL... very small. The bathroom is SMALL ... very small. Water pressure, terrible. Bed, she said was a queen, but I'm not sure...
Went for dinner at the buffet since a coupon came with the package. Food was good and so was service, but the prices were insanely high ($--ish dollars AFTER the discount coupon for two), worse yet, we were charged a mysterious PF fee (which to our waitresses credit she said was "optional" and removed).
It was at this point we decided to cut our stay in half and leave on Saturday because we were so disappointed, we went downstairs and told the check-in desk, they revised our confirmation without question of why.
Went back up to the room, only to find that we could hear EVERYTHING in the room next door, where a family with small children were staying (they weren't being loud, just normal speaking voices), the walls are paper thin, not such a great thing considering we were there for your "couples package". We asked to be moved, and were moved without question... to a room with two double beds...
We checked out the next day, there was the mysterious PF fee again, and a "resort fee" on top of that (yet when we tried to access the wifi on our cell phones we were redirected to a screen indicating it would be $15? Were never given a wifi password or instructions?)
In the end we spent $-- to stay one night at your hotel, and would never return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by K_W Ontario March break
We booked a room for one night at the Crowne Plaza and joined the throng of families in the water park for March Break.
While the room was definitely quieter and more relaxing than our previous ventures at the Skyline, the parking was quite a hike, and the wait for the elevator was very tiring for anyone with mobility issues such as myself.
Having a few benches here and there would go a long way to making it more enjoyable for disabled persons. Nonetheless, David, one of the excellent Bell staff, was quick to pull up a comfortable chair for me and assist with our check-in & luggage.
The pool and hot tub on the 3rd floor were a welcome, quiet respite from the busy water park and a great way to unwind for an hour or two before bed.
Dinner in the Rainbow Room was absolutely delicious and filling.
Everything was perfectly prepared and presented from the scrumptious carciofini (crispy fried artichoke hearts) to the melt in your mouth steak & lamb entrées to the wickedly decadent molten chocolate banana bread pudding with dulce leche. The staff were professional yet personable and made sure we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening -special heartfelt thanks to Christopher & Evan! We`ll be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FRED C EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE
The service during our family March Break vacation was a delight. The hotel was very buisy, possibly filled to capacity, but very well managed. The staff catered to our individual needs and in fact exceeded our expectations. There was lots of little perks (magic show tickets, efficient checkout and waterpark access, to name a few) which really made a difference.
A sincere thanks to Theresa, in the reservations dept. for accomodating our emergency cancellation in February with the March Break date and the front desk for accomdating an extra night stay when the winterstorm made driving home impossible.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by SAMMM Totally disappointed and not recommended
The bookings were done online for family and a Superior Falls View was chosen which comes with a higher rate. Upon checkin, a side room with little :falls view" and more of the side building view was given. Came back to the reservation counter and was told that one more room is available on the same floor, so up I went and this time it was "rainbow bridge" view. Came down again and guess what, another room was shown, this time there was a little more of the "falls view". Tired of arguing, finally settled down. Better to stay at neighboring hotel and get what you paid for with wall to wall glass for better falls view.

Our room was as expected. Hotel staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was an excellent one. I thought I had booked accommodation s with breakfast, but in fact I had not. The front desk staff looked after us and comped our breakfast. I thought that was wonderful
Something that was clearly my error they looked after us. Now that is hospitality.

Overall, it was a good weekend away with the family.
The rooms, although fairly clean, could have had some updating in the bathroom for sure. The temperature, although self regulated, were still very warm and became uncomfortable.
Elevators were always extremely long waits.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by histyle Better places to stay
- Bedding was very uncomfortable
- Toilet was very dated
- The room is very tight in space, the corner desk and TV table makes it impossible for two people even kids to walk through it without bumping into the furniture or each other
- Carpet had stains every where
- Wall paper is peeling off
- The TV is just in a very bad spot and a size too small for the room, it wont turn enough to center it for the guests on the other bed to be able to watch

I never write a review typically on principal but... I can honestly say that the service by Trevor at the front desk was by far the best service I have ever received at any of your IHG properties and I stay at a lot of them, often.
I was travelling with my children and his welcome set the tone for the weekend. Congratulations on the excellent service!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Eliy Uncomfortable bed and poor service
when I booked the hotel with water park package there were no sign of excluded breakfast. Just before heading for breakfast we inform that there is no breakfast and there buffet was break. the room was so small and good for a couple not 4 people(as they said). the beds were double and suit for one person not two. really uncomfortable beds and pillows. no refrigerator in the room.
when came back found that they charge me around 80 $ more. when I called them they said there is 75 & deposit which they did not explain in front desk. we should travel around the world to see what is marketing and how customers are valuable. when we pay by credit there is no deposit.
And the charge me for parking 1.5$ more which i still dont know why.
really disappointed by their quality and policy.

My friends and I recently bought a Waterpark Package thru the Crowne Plaza Hotel! It was such great value; if only we knew about the coupon booklet we would have gotten that included passes to Mini Golf, Swat Car attraction, Bumper Cars, Magic Show and so much more! Thank you for making our stay both totally fun & totally memorable!
Looking forward to coming back.
