NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – June 13, 2012 – Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel is home this week to Nik Wallenda, who will make worldwide history on Friday evening when he crosses directly over the breathtaking Niagara Falls on a two-inch high-wire.

Wallenda and his family previously stayed at the AAA Four Diamond Award–winning casino and hotel in May, as he trained for 11 straight days in the casino’s parking lot in front of thousands.  The May 12 to 22 practice sessions were covered by dozens of news outlets from around the world.

In a message to readers of the Wallenda Walks blog (, managed by Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel, Wallenda said: “The room and the hospitality [at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel] is amazing.  To top that off, the restaurants are incredible.  The Western Door [Steakhouse] is probably my favorite.  [Seneca Niagara’s] staff is courteous, and we even played some of the slots.”

Wallenda’s favorite entrée at the Western Door Steakhouse is The Chairman’s Delmonico – a 24-ounce, well-marbled cut that is dry-rubbed with bold seasoning, seared to perfection and topped with bleu cheese butter.  Wallenda’s wife, Erendira, and three children also will be staying once again at Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel.

Seneca Niagara Casino first opened on December 31, 2002, inside the former Niagara Falls Convention Center.  The hotel tower then opened three years later on December 31, 2005, and today remains the tallest hotel tower in New York State outside of Manhattan.  It has achieved the coveted AAA Four Diamond Award for exceptional service and amenities every year since its opening.
