    From a PR Web press release:

    The historic Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview will be celebrating its 80th birthday on July 1, 2009.

    The Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview, previously named the Brock Plaza Hotel, has maintained its reputation as a hotel that is able to flawlessly combine its historic charm with modern amenities. As the first luxury hotel in Niagara Falls the Crowne Plaza hotel has had many famous visitors including Marilyn Monroe, Walt Disney, Queen Elizabeth, and Jackie Chan to name just a few.

    It might seem like I’m late with this, but the date on the press release was July 2, 2009, a day after the birthday.
