Featured Room of the Month - The Brighton


The Red Coach Inn is an unique Niagara Falls hotel unlike any other! Did you know every room is different? From the layout to the decor to the view each room offers something new! Each month we choose a room to feature so when you are ready to book you just which one to pick!

Last month's featured room was the Cornwall Two Bedroom Suite. If you missed it you can CLICK HERE to catch up! This month we chose to feature one of our guest rooms, the Brighton Room! The Brighton is another guest favorite, mainly for its stunning views of the Upper Rapids and the Canadian skyline.

The Brighton Room is located on the second floor of the hotel, and there are no elevators, so if stairs are a problem we recommend booking a first floor room. The trip up the stairs is well worth it, the Brighton has a stunning view and you can open the windows and listen to the roar of the rapids! Inside the 275 square foot Brighton you will find a king size, a private full bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, refrigerator and coffee maker. You will also enjoy all of the Red Coach Inn amenities including breakfast and a local newspaper in our restaurant each morning from 7:30 am to 11:00 am, as well as free wireless internet, free long distance, Bose stereo, plush terry cloth robes, and Gilchrist & Soames bath amenities.


The Brighton Room books fast, so we recommend booking in advance if you are planning to enjoy this room. CLICK HERE to book now, and don't forget to leave us a note in our guest book! We hope to see you soon!
