All we can say is WOW!!


Niagara Falls from our room
Originally uploaded by moonbin.
What a view!

We arrived around 5pm..it took about 10 hours in all but that was taking our time. Stopped for breakfast then a late lunch and enjoyed the drive.

Got to the hotel and still hadn't seen a glimse of the falls. We check in and we are told we could have an upgrade for abit more. Our original room was a partial view on 12th floor..but with my jacuzzi bath! Less then 300$ per night. Still a nice view ..but for 50$ more we could have the Junior Presidential Suite with a totally full view from the 26th floor. THAT we could do. (I researched most of the nice hotels in the area and booked our room, I knew that this upgraded room's price was in the $800 per night range tax included! hense not even considering it in a million yrs!)so it was a great value at that price and it was OUR HONEYMOON!

We unlocked our room to find ourselves in a living room area, had couch, chair, table & lamp with a big bureau and tv along with a nice big desk and closet. We walked down the short hall past the bar area and bathroom...to stop.

We wanted to see the falls in the same moment hand in hand for the first time together. With excited anticipation we walked to the huge window and let our JAWS DROP!
OMG! WHAT A VIEW WE HAD.....as the title says...All we could say was WOW!

What a great start to our honeymoon. We were giddy just being there and knowing we had 4 days...no 5! days alone to do with what ever we wanted. We ended up being able to steal an extra day because he was able to get the friday off and we got the same rate on our room for an extra night. It really made a difference to have another day.

And so it begins...I will continue this in a day or two....in the mean time, go have a look at the pics I put in Flickr over there----->

EDIT...Ppl have gotten the wrong idea that I am currently ON MY HONEYMOON...We got back Friday actually...my reference to ...(And so it begins)...refers to my reliving it through my blog lol...
Do you really think we turned on the computer DURING OUR HONEYMOON?!...HELL NO! LOL ..I will however enjoy reliving it through my blog for the next few posts lol.

I didn't realize people still went to the Falls on their Honeymoon--what a great view from your room. I don't think I'd ever leave if that were my view. Glad you had a good time. Michele sent me!

Thanks for stopping by this weekend. I was in Niagra Falls last month, but we didn't have THAT view! That is probably the most amazing view ANYONE has ever had from a hotel window. Congrats to you on a wonderful future together! Your pix were amazing!
