Daily Hotel Levy

The Oakes Hotel has a daily hotel levy at 7.9% of your room rate.  This daily hotel levy is used to supplement levy charges placed upon the hotel. The business improvement association charges the Oakes hotel a monthly levy to support their extensive public events and activities. The levy is used to support some of the following examples:

  • Niagara Falls Convention Center
  • Improvement of streetscaping and capital assets
  • Special city related events

In addition, the daily hotel levy is used to help the Oakes hotel fund our recycling and environmental stewardship programs so we can work towards our goal of carbon neutrality. These funds are used for some of our programs as follows:

  • Departments have been equipped with water coolers to eliminate plastic water bottles
  • Housekeeping chemicals have been replaced with environmentally friendly chemicals
  • Recycling of cooking oils, batteries, light bulbs, electronics, printer toners, cans, oils, beer and wine bottles.
