I recently stayed at The Giacomo with my husband for three nights during our vacation to Niagara Falls. We loved this hotel! We stayed in a King room on the 3rd floor that had a jetted tub large enough for me (5'5") to completely lay down in with some extra room to spare. Our bed was comfortable and room was...

The hotel looks like nothing from the outside but really nice inside! The staff are friendly and the location is great. Safe area! Casino close by as well as restaurants. Free valet parking was appreciated! It's expensive but worth it! The "nice touch" came at 8:00 P.M. that night when the hotel brought some "hot" macadamia cookies to the room!

I have never met a friendlier staff, from the people at the desk, to the folks in the breakfast area to...

This is a great hotel in Niagara Falls. Not touristy, but a great art deco restoration and conversion. Comfortable rooms, beautiful lobby and breakfast, too. Walking distance to all the American falls attractions. Nice bar and an observation deck overlooking the city. Convenient and congenial. Price includes valley parking. Highly recommend if you want a first-class experience in the midst...

This review is a bit late. We stayed at the Giacomo for valentine's day. And it was amazing, from the uniqueness of the building inside and out to the staff - even their free breakfast. The bed.... oh my goodness, you will just melt away into their beds & linens. The rooms are so beautiful - not your average hotel....
