Room with a View

I've had good hotel rooms and I've had bad. Loud kids next door, loud TVs, loud music, loud adults engaging in adult activities. Loudly. Dirty rooms. A huge bug in the bathtub. Insufficient lighting to read. Dodgy neighborhoods.

Sometimes one's expectations are exceeded, however. Below, Niagara Falls.

From the hotel room. Sure beats waking up to a view of the parking lot.

Below, a few closer-in views. First, the Horseshoe (Canadian) Falls from the Maid of the Mist.

Okay, there's a certain cheese factor in Niagara Falls. But I like waterfalls, and these are pretty darn good.

And you can't beat the view from the room.
