Niagara Falls Makes Spectacular Backdrop to Selfie Trend

April 28, 2021 3:09 pm

With spectacular views unique to Niagara Falls, it’s no surprise that tech savvy travelers and social media influencers have adopted breathtaking Fallsview guest rooms at the Sheraton Fallsview as the backdrop of choice to stunning selfie images.  This spectacular new media trend is showcasing breathtaking views of Niagara Falls to a new audience.

The basis of the trend is guests reserve guestrooms and suites overlooking Niagara Falls and stage stunning photographs and selfies to share on social network feeds. The trend which began in the Spring, features a subject posing with the Falls in the background on either a balcony featured in our Fallsview Corner Suites; a feature only offered in Niagara Falls at the Sheraton, or in front of the floor to ceiling picture windows which are found in all Fallsview rooms at the hotel. The reaction to the images being posted was immediate with the hotel fielding numerous requests and comments from guests inquiring about room numbers for specific photos as they looked to capture the perfect shot.  Located directly across from Niagara Falls, the Sheraton Fallsview is also home to several Fallsview amenities beyond guestrooms which offer stunning photo opportunities which include Massimo’s Italian Fallsview Restaurant, and the Christienne Fallsview Spa.

With views like nowhere else other in the world, Niagara Falls, and the Sheraton Fallsview are a natural fit for this experiential trend which captures the majestic landmark in a form that is widely considered the most prominent cultural phenomenon in media today. Shot primarily on a smartphone with the intended use for social media sites like Instagram and Facebook, the images have brought increased attention to Niagara Falls which is already one of the most photographed sights in the world.

Jump on the trend and reserve one of our Fallsview Rooms to capture your shot!
