I'm no local, but the Embassy is beautiful. My wife and I spent our honeymoon there in 2007. The whirlpool suites are beautiful.. spacious rooms separated into 2 sections... living room and bedroom. Jacuzzi in the bathroom opens up into the bedroom and there are great views of the falls. The restaurant in the hotel was great. There is (or was in 07) a great nightclub across the street called the Copacabana. The Fallsview casino is right next door... 2 minute walk. The falls are a short walk down the hill. Clifton Hill is about a 15 minute walk IIRC... the most Touristy section of the city (tons to do). There is a great haunted house at the top of the hill...Nightmares Fear Factory. The whirpool/jet boat section of the falls is a short drive away if you'll have a car, as well as the winery section. I highly recommend taking a day trip to Toronto if you have access to a car. The view from the top of the CN tower alone is worth it. Niagara Falls is a great honeymoon destination IMHO.. Can't wait to go back on our 5th anniversary.
