Niagara Falls - Jolley Cut Hotel

I just saw an ad in the Lodging Hospitality magazine for the Westin Fallsview. This is supposed to be the 26 or 27 floor hotel being built by Canadian Niagara Hotels at the Jolley Cut (between the HOCO property and the Skylon Tower). A shovel hasn't even gone in the ground yet but it is being advertised as if it's done. Apparently it is supposed to be built so that it opens in January 2008.

There was an artists rendering of the hotel which I have never seen before. It looks quite nice.

I posted more details on the Niagara Falls Blog

Generally speaking, it seems as if for now the new hotel boom in Niagara Falls has ended. There are several that have city approval, but just aren't being built. The Great Wolf Lodge is the only one under construction right now, and it isn't a high rise in the main tourist district.

Yup the glass appears to match the water...BTW i really want the rainbow tower to be built. I would expect most of these projects to start construction in the spring.
