Question[edit]

Can anyone tell me how long of a drive it is from the Hamilton airport to Niagra Falls?

By taxi[edit]

With respect to edits like this one, the "By taxi" section of this article (and many others on Wikitravel) was getting spammy. Typical Wikitravel practice is that we'll leave listings of questionable value when there are only one or two (example: fast food restaurants, taxi listings, car rental listings) but remove them with a general statement about availability if the listings become a problem. That's what I've done here - there is information in this article about taxi rates under the "By bus" section (which arguably is the wrong place) so we don't need to say much more on the matter. -- Ryan • (talk) • 20:06, 13 May 2010 (EDT)

Eat, chain listings[edit]

I wasn't aware the Maid of the Mist restaurant was a franchise. Can anyone vouch? Also, a review of chains specific to a country/region should be listed on those country/region articles, correct (such as Canada, U.S., Ontario or New York)? Therefore, a review of Tim Horton's, Wendy's, etc. could be erased. Lastly, I will attempt to categorize the Eat section according to price, but for those listings which don't indicate a price, how would one be able to categorize the listing other than reading the description (which may or may not indicate a price setting)?Zepppep 12:44, 6 April 2011 (EDT)

Chain restaurants shouldn't get their own listing for destinations that have a variety of restaurants - it's generally sufficient to just include a single sentence at the top of the "Eat" section stating something like "Standard chain restaurants such as Wendy's, McDonald's, ... can be found here along with more unique establishments". As to dividing by price, others may have better methods but I've always just defaulted to "Mid-range" when I couldn't figure out where a restaurant fit. As long as you include Template:Eatpricerange to indicate what the ranges are for each category then more knowledgeable contributors should be able to fix any mistakes in the future. -- Ryan • (talk) • 12:52, 6 April 2011 (EDT)

Niagara 11 is Learning[edit]

This is an invitation to help Niagara11. She is new to the wiki world and will be cleaning up the language to remove ad phrases (touting). This is in order to add travel information about the Fallsview area on Fallsview Blvd. The new posts will be dry as a cracker. Except for this one. —The preceding comment was added by 70.54.218.226 (talkcontribs)

We don't require "dry as a cracker" language; in fact, we want lively writing. But "Start celebrating all of your life’s milestones, at Milestones Grill + Bar" is not "lively" -- it's advertising. Please see Wikitravel:Tone. LtPowers 19:37, 30 September 2011 (EDT)
