While filming in Niagara Falls, Monroe stayed in room 801 at the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls Fallsview, which was then called the General Brock Hotel. Over the years, many of our lucky guests have the honour to call this special room their home as they visit Niagara Falls like Monroe did back in 1953. Some guest even request room 801 in hopes that they will share the same room that Marilyn Monroe once had.
