Niagra Falls trip - best hotel to stay US side

Hi

I am planning to visit Niagara Falls from Syracuse in mid April

Please can you suggest if a day trip will be better or is it worthwhile staying overnight?

What is the best mode of travel from Syracuse - driving in car or a day bus trip is available?

Row an overnight stay which hotel in US side gives the best view please?

Many thanks for your help!

There are no falls view hotels on the US side - only on the Canadian side.

I prefer to overnight in downtown Buffalo though you could do a day trip from Syracuse.

Driving and self-touring is best IMO though there are probably bus trips/tours that depart from Syracuse and there are definitely buses that travel to NF from SYR.

I suggest driving and staying overnight in seneca niagara casino or sheraton across from it. You can walk to the falls american or Canadian. Don't miss whirlpool park and st. Fatima shrine and fort niagara while you are there

>>You can walk to the falls american or Canadian.<<

Citizens of India require a Visa to enter Canada, which can NOT be obtained at the Point of Entry / border.

Visas must be applied for and obtained in your country of residence.

Thankyou We plan to see the Falls from US side only . Do u know the name of the tour operator or bus company which does day tours from Syracuse?

As US side hotels do not give a Falls view - will it be better then to do a day trip or is it worthwhile staying no overnight? Thankyou !

It will be better to stay overnight if you drive, the U.S. side is really nice you will see the fall up close, and take cave of the wind tour where you walk under the fall, you can easily spend the day in the area espetially if you go to the near by parks as i suggested. If you only interested in the fall you can do it in one day but it will be tiring. Sorry i don't know a tour company from syracuse.

If you are interested in maid of the mist and cave of the winds, check to see if they are open before you come. You may want to push trip back if you are flexible. The weather varies at that time and they may or not be open depending.
