The city of Niagara Falls straddles the U.S.-Canada border, which runs along the River Niagara and through the iconic Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls are actually divided into three sections by Goat and Luna islands, with the largest, the Horseshoe Falls, on the Canadian side, and the Bridal and American falls on the U.S. side. Murray Street runs through downtown Niagara towards the falls and has a range of hotels, some with casinos attached, right on or very near the street.
Holiday Inn Hotel Niagara Falls - By the Falls
Set on Murray Street in an eight-story modern building with 122 bedrooms, the Holiday Inn Hotel Niagara Falls - By the Falls is just a few steps from Niagara’s Horseshoe Falls. The hotel has indoor and outdoor swimming pools and a whirlpool tub. Guests can dine at two on-site restaurants, the Coco Terrace Steakhouse, and Mr. Coco's Pizza Bar and Lounge, which features a wood-fired oven. The Marineland Canada theme park, a five-minute drive from the hotel, features killer and beluga whales, dolphins and thrilling rides.
