Our Stay at the "Falls View" Hilton, Canada

I was very excited to cross the border and see the Horse Shoe Falls from our suite. My husband had set up the reservations and mentioned that we would like to stay in the highest floor available because it was our 33rd Anniversary. I never expected that we would have a top floor suite. In this photo, our suite was one with the tall arched windows. It was on the 50th floor!
We had an astonishing view of both falls through a wall of floor to ceiling windows. There was a platform that you could stand on that made me feel like there wasn't even glass between us and the beautiful scene before us! Check out some of these photos :)

If you ever plan a vacation here and stay at the Hilton, I suggest that you ask for the North Tower. There are 2 towers and the North tower is taller with a better view (in my opinion). Parking is valet and around $25 a day so we parked our car at the Falls View Casino, attached to the Hilton. if you are leaving your car and using public transportation like we did, it's great. They only charge 5$ when you leave. If you go in the casino and get one of their free rewards cards, you can swipe it when you leave the parking garage and not have to pay the 5$. This saved us a lot of cash as we stayed for a week. If you park on the 5th floor of the parking garage, you can walk straight across the bridge in my photo to re-enter your hotel. It's a short distance from there to the elevators. There is a Starbucks on that level. (mezzanine) We always grabbed a cup of coffee on our way back. They also have a Brazilian Steak House which was great. We bought a package that included a breakfast every day, one dinner at the steak house, 50$ in casino money, 4 drinks in one of the lounges.
Here are some photos of our suite. We would definitely like to go back again and stay in the same room :)
