Niagara Falls Ontario hotels come in a wide variety of styles and price ranges, from smaller inns to large chain hotels and resorts.
You could easily stay indoors your entire vacation if you wished. You don't even have to go outside to see the Falls; you can view them from your fallsview room (make sure you book the falls side and not the city view) or from the top-floor restaurant.
Great Wolf Lodge Niagara Falls
3950 Victoria Avenue
With their "wolf lodge" theme and indoor waterpark, this is one of the most family-friendly hotels at Niagara Falls. They even have a “spa for kids” featuring manicures, pedicures and facials for your young, pampered princess.
If you liked the "Great Wolfs" in your travels in United States, you'll like this one too. They are heavy advertisers on local tv, and consequently they're one of the newest but one of the best-known hotels at Niagara Falls.
