    Travelocity Names Luxury Hotel in Niagara Falls a Top 5 Canadian Destination


    From a Marketwire press release:

    The last long weekend of the summer is quickly approaching, and with the Marriott Fallsview Hotel & Spa you can refresh and revive before autumn arrives at one of Canada’s top boutique hotels in Niagara Falls.

    According to Travelocity.ca, Niagara Falls and the Marriott Fallsview are one of Canada’s Top 5 Destinations this Labour Day weekend.

    I unclear on what this is actually saying… Is the Marriott claiming that Travelocity says they are a top 5 destination, or that the Niagara Falls is? I can’t imagine that the Marriott is a top 5 destination in all of Canada. And is the Marriott considered a boutique hotel when it is that big?
