Those who place the importance of a journey over a destination have never been to Niagara Falls. Spanning two countries, towering 167 feet and displacing more than 3,000 tons of water per second, this famous attraction is so magnificent that the only “journey” you’ll want to take is around its periphery, or on one of the tour boats that bring you face to face with the falls. Maximize your time at this destination and minimize your journey time there by choosing one of the best hotels to see Niagara Falls. Here are a few suggestions on where to stay, whether you visit the American or Canadian side of the Falls.

Although the most notable feature of this large four-star hotel is the casino that resides within it, many elements of the Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino don’t require you to try your luck. Most notably, the hotel is only a short walk from the American side of the Falls, and many rooms even feature waterfall views. Relax after your day of sightseeing in the hotel’s full-service spa, or the 10 eateries you’ll find here. And hey, no one’s going to judge you if you want to enjoy a game of Blackjack after your day of taking in all that majestic beauty.

The Niagara Falls location of Marriott’s popular Fairfield Inn & Suites hotel concept is simpler than the Seneca Niagara Resort, but also boasts many of the same benefits, namely an extremely convenient location. Another reason many guests choose this 61-room hotel is that it boasts affordable rates year-round, which makes it a great choice for budget travelers, families and students.

Niagara Falls State Park is only five minutes by foot from Double Tree by Hilton Niagara Falls. If that’s not enough of a reason for you to book a stay here, the extensive room service menu, delicious on-site steakhouse and 24-hour business center have proven popular among guests. Another appealing feature of this hotel is the indoor swimming pool, which is a great place to swim since doing so is prohibited at the falls themselves.

Although this four-star hotel is less than a mile away from iconic Horseshoe Falls, many of its best features have nothing to do with the attraction. Many Embassy Suites Fallsview guests, for example, love the free, fresh-cooked breakfast. Other impressive amenities include a fitness center and several full-service restaurants, including a branch of the popular TGI Fridays chain.

Featuring an elaborate wooden facade ornamented with totem poles that honor Canada’s First Nations people, Great Wolf Lodge also houses an indoor water park that’s sure to be a bit with little guests. If this doesn’t appeal to you, you might find the eight restaurants, full-service bar and relaxed coffee shop on-site to be more to your liking.
