Gourmet cuisine, romantic amenities and top-notch staff
Families should book elsewhere, as this boutique hotel caters mostly to adults

Staying true to Niagara Falls' romantic reputation, the Sterling Inn & Spa caters to couples seeking a memorable escape with intimate surroundings and upscale amenities. Each of the Sterling's rooms features a fireplace, a wet bar and a minifridge. Guests can also choose to have their rooms pre-stocked with romantic mood-setters like sparkling wine, chocolate-dipped strawberries or fresh roses (for a fee). And included in the price of the room is a romantic breakfast in bed, complete with pastries, yogurt, eggs, juice and coffee. For subsequent meals, guests recommend dining on-site at AG Inspired Cuisine, which serves up dishes like red wine braised lamb shank and espresso rubbed cornish hen made from locally sourced ingredients. The Spa at Sterling Inn also receives applause for its relaxing atmosphere and welcoming staff. But what truly seals the deal for previous visitors is the upscale, yet laid-back atmosphere of the hotel, as well as the friendly and professional demeanor of its staff. You'll find the Sterling Inn & Spa in central Niagara Falls.
