Hotels prepared for Wallenda Walk

Jun 11, 2012

This is a big business week in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

Anthony Annunziata, Marketing Vice President, says his customers will have the best view of the walk  from the Marriott Gateway at the Falls and the Marriott Fallsview hotels.

That's more than 800 rooms looking out at the Falls and the walk.

Perhaps the biggest event on the hotel calendar in the Ontario Cataract City is New Year's Eve. Annunziata believes this will be as big and and the hotel room rates will be high.

"We're fortunate enough to have a location that is literally what I call the 50-yard line of the event," Annunziata said.

"The event is happening right in front of our hotel, right in front of the Falls. We're the closest hotel to the Falls and all of our rooms are Falls view rooms. So, we're what we call 'Position A' and we're excited."

Besides that, the Niagara Parks Commission is closing the parkway to traffic for the event, allowing people to walk everywhere and watch.
