Opened in 2015, Wingate by Wyndham is the newest hotel to debut in Niagara Falls, New York. It’s also the first Wingate by Wyndham in the area, and offers brand standards such as complimentary breakfast, a swimming pool and free Wi-Fi. It also offers some unexpected perks, such as suites that sleep up to seven guests — a rarity at many chain hotels. The hotel is a 10-minute walk to Niagara Falls State Park (or a four-minute drive), and a 15-minute drive (with standard traffic) to Niagara Falls, Ontario.

The rooms had bed bugs and we had to leave at midnight due to having no more rooms or availability in the area. They didn't end up charging us. They need to clean the bathrooms better as well. Very very dirty

We just stayed in Niagara Falls for a 2 night stay and couldn't have asked for a better location. Just a couple of minutes walk into Niagara Falls park and the falls. Didn't even have to drive into the park so it even saved having to pay the state park parking fee. Check a map, plan your walk, and you'll basically do a big loop. Head into the park and towards the Horseshoe Falls, then work your way back around towards the Bridal Veil/American Falls and Observation Tower. Then when you leave the park by the visitor center it's just a few minute walk back up to the hotel. When you do, you'll pass by many places to eat and things to see and do (depending on the season). We grabbed a pizza from the Papa Johns we walked by and took it back to the room. Save the driving for when you head up the parkway for the 15ish minute drive along the Niagara River up to Fort Niagara and Lake Ontario and the gorgeous scenic overlooks along the way.
The hotel has a small, indoor pool for guests to enjoy. It reaches 5 feet in depth and is heated. There is no lifeguard on duty.
It's a 10-minute walk to Niagara Falls State Park, or a four-minute drive. It's also a short drive to other attractions, such as the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds.
Who doesn't love free breakfast? The hotel provides a buffet with hot and cold items, from make-your-own waffles to fresh fruit. Coffee and tea are also available. There's plenty of seating, including a communal table for large groups. Breakfast is typically served 7 to 10 a.m. daily. Complimentary coffee and tea are served all day.
Restaurants within a half-mile of the hotel include the Rainforest CafÃ©, T.G.I.Friday's and Starbucks.

The Art of Smart Timing
Niagara Falls remains a popular vacation destination for families around the world, most of who visit during the summer months. Consider a trip in September or October to avoid crowds. Most attractions, including the Maid of the Mist, are still open during this time.
The closest airport to Niagara Falls is Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Niagara Falls, New York is approximately 30 minutes away, with one toll ($1) on the main route.
From the hotel, it's easy to get to Niagara Falls State Park in New York, and just as easy to cross Rainbow Bridge and see Niagara Falls, Ontario. Still, you'll want a car to get around with ease -- rent one at the airport, or enjoy your own if driving to the hotel from home.
For Mom and Dad
Head to the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel for a round of blackjack or craps. Afterward, enjoy a meal at one of the resort's signature restaurants: Koi (Asian), La Cascata (Italian) or Western Door, which is a steakhouse. Reservations are recommended for all. If you don't like casinos, visit The Spa for a relaxing treatment.
