Get The Best Deals On Hotel Rooms


Take a look around and you will find that in the Winter you can get a hotel room mid-week near Clifton Hill from as low as $55 per night. This is a drastic difference from Summer rates and holiday weekend rates.

Clifton Hill area hotels are close to all the action and excitement of Clifton Hill and the Niagara Parks attractions, and also only steps away from viewing the splendor of the Niagara Falls.

No Need To Travel Far, Everything is Within a Block to the Falls

When you face temperatures in Winter that dip well below the freezing mark, the last thing that you want to do is travel long distances. This is why the Clifton Hill Fun Pass is your ticket to fun and convenience. All of our attractions are located on one spot — on Clifton Hill!

You will not need to travel via car or bus between these facilities, thus causing you to spend more money that you didn’t plan on spending. Everything is located in one central spot. Have fun and snap away as well — we also have WiFi to add to your experience at these attractions.

You Are Just Steps Away from the Best Winter Views

People flock from all over the world just to catch a glimpse of the Falls in a Winter Wonderland of white beauty. When it gets cold enough, the miniature glaciers and long icicles that form are truly a photographers dream.

The flow of water that tumbles over the American Falls is much less than the flow of water that cascades over the Horseshoe Falls, so your most “frozen” views (the Falls never completely freeze) would be taken from here. Conveniently, the American Falls and the adjoining Bridal Veil Falls, are located directly at the bottom of Clifton Hill, whereas the Horseshoe Falls are still approximately a 5-10 minute walk down the Niagara Parkway. Don’t miss the Niagara Falls illuminations in the evening, and if you are lucky enough, when it’s really cold you’ll have the best view of the ice bridge from this standpoint!

No Crowds

Niagara SkyWheel

During the Summer, the Niagara Falls is full of crowds. The warm weather, frequent nightly fireworks shows, and the Niagara Speedway draw thousands of tourists. The Winter however, is a quieter time, and with the exception of a few attractions, the majority of Niagara’s attractions are still open, and this includes our Clifton Hill attractions such as the Niagara SkyWheel (which is heated and enclosed).

You will encounter very little wait times (if any at all) at our attractions and dining facilities. Along the Niagara Parkway there will also be far less crowds to contend with while taking your photo opportunities!

Plenty of Parking

We have plenty of parking accessible in our Clifton Hill parking lot during these months.
