Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls – Fallsview is a historic hotel located in the Falls Avenue 20-acre (81,000 m2) complex (which is formally known as the Falls Avenue Entertainment Complex) in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.
The hotel was originally built in 1929 as the Hotel General Brock. It was designed by The Pigott Company of Hamilton, Ontario. The hotel was named for Sir Isaac Brock, a British Major General who defended Canada from the Americans in the War of 1812.
The General Brock was bought by Sheraton in the 1950s and was renamed the Brock-Sheraton Hotel, a name it kept for more than forty years. In the 1990s, the property left Sheraton and was renamed the Skyline Brock and then the Brock Plaza Hotel in the early 2000s. The hotel joined the InterContinental Hotels chain in 2008 and was again renamed the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview Hotel.
