Editor’s Review of The Giacomo

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Giacomo pleasantly mixes the past and present in Niagara Falls, New York. Built in 1929, it once served as the United Office Building. Today, the high-rise property comprises 39 boutique guestrooms, plus 24 residential apartments -- many of which overlook the rapids of the famed falls.

While the hotel doesn't offer programming for kids, it offers all the conveniences families seek: complimentary breakfast, in-room mini-fridges, free Wi-Fi, comfortable guestrooms (which happen to be quite luxurious), and a central location in Niagara Falls -- just minutes from Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds and the Rainbow Bridge to Canada.

The Giacomo offers 39 rooms, each of which are uniquely furnished and decorated in an art-deco theme. Accommodations feature mini-fridges, Keurig coffeemakers, bathrobes and free Wi-Fi. Guests are also treated to chocolates upon arrival. While most bathrooms don't feature tubs, all of them are extremely spacious (double or even triple the size of a traditional hotel bathroom).

Cribs are available upon request (request in advance), free of charge, and rollaway beds can be added to rooms for $10 per night. Kids stay free in all rooms, while there's a charge of $10 for each extra adult who stays in one room. Cookies are served at evening turndown -- a perk the kids love.
