    My wife and I had dinner recently at the Niagara Falls Hilton Watermark rooftop restaurant. We drove into the valet parking area and the concierge immediately recognized the Tesla and asked if we would like to charge while dining. He asked us to follow him a few yards into the garage and right into their EV reserved spot. I plugged her in and then enjoyed a good meal. We returned a little wile later, unplugged the cable and drove off. As we exited, I asked about a fee and was waved on with a smile. "No charge sir and thank you for coming".
    So as you can imagine, we strongly recommend the Hilton Watermark restaurant if your visiting the Falls area in your Tesla!

    I'll echo the good experience at the Hilton. I had to work in town and my client booked a room there. Charger is actually in the self parking area but an attendant needs to move some pylons.

    Anyways, first night I provided a name and room number. I assume the parking charge was paid by my client's master account. I stopped by on the second day and assumed I'd have to pay since I checked out. They told me not to worry about it... and this was when the lot was full and they were turning people away. Class act and no fishing for tips either.

    I just drove up there from DC a couple weeks ago in my P85+. We stayed at the Hilton - they allowed me to charge in their garage at no cost - I was able to get 26 MPH. In fact they treated my son and an like royalty, moving cones and escorting us directly to the two parking locations - class act experience - I will definitely stay there again on the next trip up.

    To me the obvious would be to use the Grimsby SC to top up then would have plenty to get back to the Grimsby SC on the way home.

    Very true but when I started this thread six months ago the Grimsby SC did not exist.

    Certainly more convenient, but I'm a little bit sad that the chances of stopping at that Grimsby pub are now lessened for me. Had a perfect excuse before...
