The Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview is a historic hotel located in the 20-acre (81,000 m2) Falls Avenue Entertainment Complex in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

History

The Hotel General Brock opened on July 1, 1929. It was named for Major-General Sir Isaac Brock, who died in the War of 1812, while defending Canada from the invading Americans at the nearby Battle of Queenston Heights. The 260-room General Brock was designed by architects Findlay and Foulis and constructed at a cost of $1.5 million by The Pigott Company of Hamilton, Ontario.[2]

Two floors were added to the top of the hotel in 1948.[3] In 1950, the Cardy Hotels chain, which owned the General Brock, was bought by Sheraton Hotels,[4] and the hotel was renamed the Sheraton-Brock Hotel. In 1959, a new $500,000 convention wing was added, including the hotel's Crystal Ballroom.[5] The hotel's name was changed slightly in 1982 to The Brock Sheraton and again in 1985 to The Sheraton Brock. In 1989, the hotel left Sheraton and was renamed the Skyline Brock, it was again renamed the Brock Plaza Hotel in 2001.[6] The hotel joined the InterContinental Hotels chain on April 17, 2008[7] and was renamed the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview Hotel.

In popular culture

In 1952, the 20th Century-Fox film Niagara was shot in Niagara Falls. Marilyn Monroe, Joseph Cotten, and Jean Peters all stayed at the Brock, with Marilyn staying in room 801.[8]

In 2000, the final scene of the film The Whole Nine Yards was shot on one of the balconies of the Brock Plaza Hotel.[9]
