Seeing the Niagara Falls is on a lot of people’s must-see list, and with good reason. They are truly spectacular. The sheer size and majesty of the waterfalls is impossible to imagine. It is only when you get close to them that you realize you have never seen anything so impressive before and are not likely to in the future.
Understandably, the area is a magnet for tourists. Millions visit the area. So, over the years, it has gained a bit of a reputation for being too touristy, a bit tacky even. In reality, this is not the case. Yes, the area has its tourist traps, but, as you will see it is perfectly possible to book yourself a luxury trip to Niagara. All you have to do is to follow some of the suggestions we outline below and add in some activities that you know you will enjoy.
Book yourself into a five-star hotel
The Niagara Falls Marriott is a top class hotel. It is located as close to the waterfalls as it is possible to get meaning that you get a fantastic view of the main attraction.

Spas and wellness centers
The Marriott has a fantastic spa for guests to enjoy. So, if you book yourself in there you will not have to go anywhere else.
