The Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls Fallsview is celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the release of the movie ‘Niagara’, circa 1953, starring Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotton and Jean Peters.
Marilyn stayed in the Crowne Plaza which was called the General Brock Hotel at the time of shooting ‘Niagara’. Marilyn stayed in room 801 at the time of shooting. The Crowne Plaza has rich history in Niagara Falls originally opening July 1st, 1929. As Niagara’s first luxury hotel, it has long been a favourite of Hollywood elite and royalty. Since it’s opening, the Crowne Plaza has hosted many notable guests throughout history including Walt Disney, Shirley Temple, Jimmy Stewart, Princess Margaret, Queen Elizabeth, and perhaps most famous guest, Marilyn Monroe, who made the Crowne her home while filming the movie “Niagara”. In recent years the Crowne Plaza has been graced with appearances from Sylvester Stallone, Matt Dillon, Bruce Willis, and Jackie Chan. The Crowne Plaza has even appeared on film, the ending of “A whole nine yards” starring Matthew Perry was filmed on the balcony terrace on the 11th floor.
We welcome guests to help us celebrate the 60th Anniversary of the release of ‘Niagara’ at the Crowne Plaza. We have several great hotel packages available to suit every guests taste.
