There are rooms that face the river and you definitely want to ask for one of those. As Ray says the falls are farther up within walking distance. The Riverwalk is very nice. We ate supper at Smitty’s pancake and steak House which is probably a 2 minute walk from the hotel around the corner. We would recommend it. But be aware that this is not a river river or falls falls. If you understand my drift. Do not expect to see Niagara Falls. It’s a very wonderful town. Nice hotel. You’ll enjoy your stay just don’t have high expectations for falls and a river.
