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 originally opened on July 1, 1929 as the Hotel General Brock. It was designed by The Pigott Company of Hamilton, Ontario and named for Sir Isaac Brock, a British major general who defended Canada from the Americans in the War of 1812.
Two floors were added to the top of the building in 1948. The General Brock was bought by Sheraton in 1950 and renamed the Sheraton-Brock Hotel. The hotel's name was changed slightly in 1982 to The Brock Sheraton and again in 1985 to The Sheraton Brock. In 1989, the hotel left Sheraton and was renamed the Skyline Brock, then the Brock Plaza Hotel in 2001. The hotel joined the InterContinental Hotels chain in 2008 and was renamed the Crowne Plaza Niagara Falls-Fallsview Hotel.
