Bottom Line

This mid-range hotel from the Wyndham chain is situated on a busy street in the Fallsview tourist district, within walking distance of attractions. There's a lobby lounge bar that serves casual fare, plus guests get vouchers to a nearby IHOP for breakfast. Other amenities include an indoor pool and hot tub as well as meeting space, but guests complain of pesky added fees for parking, tourist taxes, as well as facility fees. Guest rooms are spacious and offer flat-screen TVs, coffeemakers, and free Wi-Fi, while suites have living/dining areas with wet bars, microwaves, and mini-fridges. Some rooms have whirlpool tubs. Guests occasionally complain of cleanliness and maintenance issues, however, and there have also been noise complaints due to thin walls. Guest might want to compare with the Embassy Suites by Hilton Niagara Falls Fallsview Hotel, which has clean rooms, all with views of the falls, as well as free breakfast and evening cocktail receptions -- though there are fees for Wi-Fi and parking.

Oyster Hotel Review

Wyndham Garden Niagara Falls Fallsview

Scene

Mid-range chain hotel with pleasant, if bland, interiors 

The name of this hotel refers to its location rather than its views, as this mid-range Wyndham hotel does not offer any views of the falls. But it is in the busy Fallsview tourist area and within walking distance of the falls and many other top attractions. Interiors are as expected from the brand, with typically chain-like decor -- but they're pleasant, and the common areas in particular are more modern and stylish than some might expect. The lobby -- decorated in browns, blues, and creams -- features a fireplace in the small seating area in front of the reception desk, and a large flat-screen TV, another fireplace, and bar once past it. Dark wood furniture includes includes a large shelving structure adorned with some knickknacks. 

Overall, this is an adequate choice that's popular with tourists, and many families tend to stay here. Complaints of cleanliness, noise, and pesky additional fees are a sour point, however, and it's worth comparing rates with the many other nearby hotels.

Location

Convenient location close to restaurants, entertainment, and tourist attractions

The hotel is conveniently situated on Stanley Avenue and within walking distance of Fallsview tourist district restaurants, shops, entertainment, and attractions. (Fallsview Blvd., which is the artery of this area, is a block away.) Several other hotels line the street, and the Skylon Tower is two blocks away (a six-minute walk), while Fallsview Casino is a seven-minute walk. Queen Victoria Park can be reached in nine minutes, while Niagara Parkway, with views of the falls, is 12 minutes away. Journey Behind the Falls is within a 20-minute walk. Other nearby attractions include the Niagara SkyWheel, Casino Niagara, and Fallsview Indoor Waterpark, all of which can be reached within 15 to 20 minutes on foot. Niagara Falls International Airport in New York is about a 25- to 30-minute drive, while Toronto Pearson International Airport is 70 minutes away.

Rooms

Spacious rooms have flat-screen TVs and coffeemakers; suites have living/dining areas

Rooms are fairly spacious and though the contemporary decor is bland and typically chain-like, the spaces are pleasant enough. Dusty blue walls are paired with dark wood furniture and beige carpets and curtains. Suites have separate living and dining areas with pullout couches, wet bars, microwaves, and mini-fridges. The Jr. Presidential Whirlpool Suite includes a fireplace in the bedroom. Note that rooms overlook the city and surroundings (including the parking lot), and none have views of the falls.

Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs with free HBO, alarm clock radios with MP3 connection, coffeemakers (with free Wolfgang Puck coffee and Numi tea), work desks with ergonomic chairs, and free Wi-Fi, while mini-fridges are available for an additional fee (free in suites). Bathrooms are large and adhere to the same color scheme as the rooms, with dusty blue and beige walls that pair well with sleek, slate-colored vanities that offer plenty of space. Most rooms have shower/tub combos, though Whirlpool Rooms have in-room whirlpool tubs for two and separate showers in the bathroom. Toiletries are provided.

Note that some guests complain of cleanliness and maintenance issues, including stained bedding, mold in the bathrooms, and poor water pressure. Noise issues due to thin walls are also possible.

Features

Lobby lounge bar, indoor pool and hot tub, small fitness center, and free Wi-Fi -- but pesky extra fees

Though there's no full restaurant on-site, guests can dine or drink in the lobby bar, MJ's Lobby Lounge & Bar, which offers casual meals and drinks. Room service is also available. The hotel does not serve breakfast, but all rates also come with free vouchers to the nearby IHOP (as well as to Outback Steakhouse) -- though guests complain that the discounts aren't enough and food is pricier than expected.

The hotel has a decently sized indoor pool as well as a hot tub, plus there's a small but bright and airy fitness room equipped with a handful of modern machines and weights.

A business area with two computers and a printer is available for guest use. Meeting and event space is available, with a room that fits up to 60 people. Other amenities include coin-operated guest laundry facilities and a small game room with several arcade games. Wi-Fi is free throughout. On-site parking incurs a fee. Note that many guests complain of various fees added to their bills, including facility fees and tourist taxes.
