Marriott on the Falls

Niagara Falls, Niagara

The hotel

Well it doesn’t come more aptly named than this! The superb Marriott Gateway on the Falls really does serve as the ‘gateway’ to all of Niagara and, having undergone a recent multi-million dollar renovation, it’s as awesome inside as the view is outside! Choose between a City View Room or a Falls View Room — both are very comfortable indeed with modern amenities and plenty of space. If you haven’t got a Falls View Room, no worries, you can see it from just about every other window, including the Milestones Fallsview Restaurant, where you can feast your eyes as well as your stomach! The restaurant features one of the best views around and dining at night is even more of a treat courtesy of the nightly Falls Illuminations and the periodic fireworks. Other amenities include an indoor pool to splash about in, a whirlpool, an expansive fitness centre and the fallsview terrace and observation deck. What’s also worth shouting about is the complimentary breakfast served to guests on the Mezzanine level — a great way to kick-start what is guaranteed to be a great day.

Visited Niagara Falls for the Victoria Day long weekend with my hubby and had the time of my life. I planned a baby moon 🌝 for us which included a one night stay at the Marriott on the Falls 🏨. From the check-in to dining in at the Milestones Restaurant and our Fallsview room with a king sized 🛌; the experience was amazing. I highly recommend this hotel of choice to ever couple looking to getaway even if it’s just for one day. Read less

Everything was very good, the food, the staff was very friendly, professional and respectful. I found the price of the parking lot execly and very surprised that a hotel of this type charges guests for parking

We were so pleased with our stay and because it was a celebration of our anniversary they had a bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us in the room. However we went to the lobby bar and sat for about 20 minutes and know one came to see if we wanted anything. So we just left and went somewhere else.

Across the street from the falls, situated within walking distance to many restaurants. Clean, friendly staff and very good restaurant (a little pricey.) The hotel has a nice pool and fitness room. The hotel is very large and tends to be very busy.

Firstly I want to state that I am a Marriott Elite member, and while I was frustrated with some of the nuances of this location, I do understand that it's part of a greater problem in the area.

Firstly I want to state that I am a Marriott Elite member, and while I was frustrated with some of the nuances of this location, I do understand that it's part of a greater problem in the area. This was an "escape from our children" weekend for my wife and I, and as we don't get to do it very often we splurged a little. We did the self-check-in with the mobile app, and everything appeared to work fine until we tried to use the assigned digital key. The key only ever did work for us once, and we ended up just getting regular keys. The idea is great, but didn't work for us. Self-check-in at this hotel is pointless if you have a car. In order to park legally, you need a parking permit which you can only get at the front desk...so you should definitely save yourself the time and just check in normally. The parking is $35 a day, and it'....tough. Parking seems to be unpatrolled and uncontrolled...additionally there are no assigned Elite parking or assigned parking spots. Additionally, as patrolling appears to be at a minimum, there is no guarantee that if you leave for an even and then return that there will be a spot for you when you return. As a result people appear to park in whatever fashion they can to make it work. I have never had this issue at a Marriott properly before, and while it was extremely frustrating, my guess is that the location just needs more parking spaces than it has access to at this time. Regarding the hotel itself...the front desk staff is stellar, and honestly took away most of the frustration that had built up at this point. The room was very nice (and clean), and the hotel sleeping area was pretty quiet despite a dance competition that was ongoing. The view from the room was great, and I like the fact that there was a seating area set up so that you could sit and just watch the falls. Read less
