I was one of the first to point out that the new restaurant at the Baymont Inn & Suites was going to be a Hooters. I took a few pictures as they were getting ready to open and signs were being put up, but I never got around to posting them.
From the Niagara Falls Review:
The orange short shorts are making a comeback.
After a three-year absence from Niagara Falls, John Goard, director of operations for Hooters in southern Ontario, said the world-famous restaurant known for its scantily-dressed waitresses is returning.
“Niagara Falls is a major, worldwide tourist market and we need to be there,” said Goard.
An application to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario for a liquor licence was recently approved meaning an opening could happen sometime this spring, Goard said. The restaurant will be on the ground floor of the Baymont Inn on Ferry St.
From Buffalo Business First:
Hooters is making a return to the Niagara region of Southern Ontario.
Niagara Falls, Ont. development officials confirmed Thursday that Hooters has signed a lease to occupy the first floor of the Baymont Inn on Ferry Street, just two blocks from Fallsview Casino & Resort.
Hooters is slated to open later this spring.
Are you following the Groupon, Wagjag, or other deal sites in your area? If you are going to be travelling, are you checking the deals in that city?
For Niagara Falls, recently there has been a Wagjag deal for Wild Wing (attached to the Baymont Inn). It is still good for another 3 days. Today there is a Groupon deal for GooEe’s Oriental Grill House that is good until the end of the day.
The City of Niagara Falls also had a media release about the Niagara Falls 2009 Sleep Cheap, Charities Reap event (the release was titled 5th Annual Sleep Cheap Reservation Date Announced):
The waiting is over! Reservations for the 5th Annual Sleep Cheap Charities Reap event can be made starting Friday October 23, 2009 at 8:00 a.m. Sleep Cheap Charities Reap will take place over four nights from Monday, November 9 to Thursday, November 12, 2009. Room rates for this year are: $35 per night for a standard room, $45 for a Fallsview room, $65 for a whirlpool room, and $85 for a room with access to a waterpark.
Twenty-eight of Niagara’s finest hotels will offer their rooms to Niagara Region residents only to benefit local charities. New to Sleep Cheap this year are the Doubletree Fallsview Resort & Spa by Hilton and the Niagara Falls Baymont Inn & Suites.
A few of my own thoughts/observations/questions:
- It’s good to see some new hotels participating
- Why is the Great Wolf Lodge participating? I’m sure they have their reasons, but ultimately it looks bad since they participated before
- I like the idea of some attractions participating. I wonder if in the future, attractions on Clifton Hill will be included
- I don’t think my family will be taking advantage of this at all this year
- I never did post my experience last year at the Americana. I will do so soon
- This is a fantastic promotion, and raises a lot of money for charity. Good job Niagara Falls!
