    Best of Access Niagara – Doubletree Marineland package

    1 Comment

    This is the first of my “Best of Access Niagara“. This series looks back on popular posts, highly commented posts, my favourite places, etc.

    The DoubleTree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton – Niagara Falls open in 2004, and it looks like my first post about them was in 2005. I had never heard of Doubletree before they came to Niagara Falls, but now see them all over the place. I’ve had the opportunity to stay there a couple of times, and it has always been a nice stay.

    Strangely, one of my most popular posts ever was one I did back in 2008 that was about a Marineland package that they were offering. For the summer of 2008 it was by far the most visited page, and all of the traffic was coming from Google. I guess if you searched for Marineland package back then, my site was right up near the top. The Doubletree themselves told me that the hits to their website about the package “was [their] best result ever!”

    Anyway, I’ve been hit hard by changes that Google has made over the years and I don’t get the traffic I got before. I still look back on those days in 2008 and wish that I could get such a high listing again. Maybe then I could actually make some money off this site 🙂

    As a side note, the Doubletree does not have a Marineland package anymore. Apparently very few hotels do. However, the Doubletree does have a Summer Family Package that contains meals and Niagara Adventure Passes. You can read more about it here.

    Here is the original page that I had about the Doubletree Marineland package

    From Yahoo! Canada Finance:

    Fallsview Casino turns 10 on June 10. The 24-hour casino resort, overlooking the mighty Niagara Falls – one of the top vistas in the world – celebrates a decade of great gaming and strong community partnerships in Niagara.

    “This is an incredible milestone for our organization,” said Art Frank, President of Fallsview Casino and Casino Niagara. “Despite the industry’s ebbs and flows, we’ve remained a competitive player in our market, and as we reflect on our achievements and look forward to the next 10 years, we do so with tremendous gratitude to our patrons, employees and partners, who make us one of North America’s premier entertainment and tourist attractions.”
