    This June trip to Niagara Falls is starting to get very big. This might be a new thing to start a yearly Trip for all us Cancun Care peeps. If all goes well...

    The Falls is a great place for site seeing. I lived in the Falls for 11 years and know it well, so if anybody would like to get out and see the area I would be more then happy to show people around one of the many Wonders of the World. If anyone in this group likes Fishing I run a Charter boat on Lake Ontario, we could do some site seeing, and then do some of the Fine Salmon Fishing that our Great Lakes has to offer.

    Lets all hope for a Hot Steamy June ...

    Steve

    Excellent, from Boston (fringe...:)), I don't know, I would guess six-seven hours by car, but I could be way out.

    That's fantastic, glad to hear it, now you'll have to convince Roy and Sandy.

    From Beantown to the Falls is about 8 hours. Just go West on I-90 and keep going to the Niagara Falls exit! I've made the trip many times. It's kind of a boring ride from Utica in.

    We'll try and make this Bob, as long as you promise no taxi rides!!! We'll have to firm up closer to the date.

    Glad to hear it, I have heard from RoynSandy as well, they might be in too.

    As for the taxi rides, we'll give them up for karaoke...:)

    I am learning more lines to the song...:)

    Update

    So I have sent out the message below (in bold) to about 10 hotels: I have recieved 5 replies back and figure that we should wait over the weekend for any last replies.

    I recieved a response from this one http://www.cairncroft.com/ for $115.00 a night, if you look up the site, we would be put in the tower.

    This hotel here http://www.radisson.com/niagarafallsca has offered it to us at $114.00 per night plus $10.00 per night, they said they normally charge $20.00 per night.

    This hotel here http://www.oakeshotel.com/ has offered $129.00 for the Friday night and $189.00 for the Saturday night.

    This hotel here http://www.fallsview.com/NiagaraSheratonFallsviewHotel.shtml has offered $170.00 per night for a cityview room and $210.00 per night for a fallsview room

    And finally this one http://www.embassysuitesniagara.com/ has offered $225.00 per night.

    I haven't yet heard from http://doubletree1.hilton.com/en_US...-Spa-Fallsview-Niagara-Falls-Ontario/index.do, or http://www.niagarafallshilton.com/ which are both Hilton Properties, I haven't heard from http://www.nfcourtyard.com/ or from http://www.niagarafallsmarriott.com/ both of which are Marriot properties and I haven't heard from http://www.niagaratower.com/ which is a Ramada property and for those familiar with the Falls from 20 years ago is the old Panasonic tower.

    If anyone has any other hotels they would like to try, please feel free to copy and e-mail my introduction or use your own. We are down to about 3 months away and they are telling me that they are beginning to book up for golf season and stuff. I am not sure how true that is, it might be some arm twisting or it could be legitimate. I think we should make a final decision in the next week or so and move to the next round. Of the prices offered I would go with one of the first two, strictly based on price. The first one is the cheaper (because of no parking costs) and is situated around mid-town on Lundy's Lane. It has an onsite dancebar (it is actually the local cougar bar :D ) and is pretty centrally located for whatever you may be looking for. The second hotel overlooks the Falls and is within walking distance to the Casino and great restaurants. Nearby is a Keg, our personal favorite, the Canyon Creek Chophouse, there is a TGI Friday's nearby, an Applebees, Copacabana, Outback Steakhouse and many other fine eating establishments.

    Hope this post here helps, looking forward to it.

    Hello



    We are part of an international messenger board www.cancuncare.com, that chat online about past, present and upcoming trips to Cancun. Recently someone suggested, hey, wouldn’t it be neat to get together and have a meet and greet, there is a fair amount from this area so I put together a post to gauge some interest for this to take place in Niagara Falls. We currently have about 40 people expressing interest for about 20 rooms. We have now gone to the next step which is e-mailing hotels similar to yours to see what type of rates we can get, if we can get a whole floor and if you have any type of commons rooms.



    This would be for the weekend of June 5th and 6th, we have people as far away from Boston that have expressed some interest so some people may stay a bit longer.



    Can you tell me what you can offer?



    Thanks
