Review of Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort

Opened in 2004, the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort is now one of the most prominent features on the Niagara skyline. Situated on the Ontario side of the famous waterfall, the large resort boasts 374 rooms and a whopping 200 000 square foot casino floor.  The site that the hotel is built on is the same one that the old transformer station building for the Ontario Power Company once stood on. That was sadly demolished to make way for the Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort. The only remaining bits of the old transformer building are retained on the East facade of the hotel. The area where the transformers used to stand is now the Grand Hall. Another nod to the sites former occupancy is a water feature at the entrance to the hotel called The Teslatron.
