Arriving at 10 pm means NF at midnight at best. It's 90 minutes at least each way plus getting a car and all that. The falls are OK at night but not that great. They might be frozen over which is interesting when illuminated, but I am not sure the long range forecast says that's too likely even in February.

6:25 pm departure means airport by 4 p.m. and with rush hour traffic loathsome in all directions, I can't see this as being much fun or very practical. Arrive 12 midnight or later, have a look, sleep to 7 a.m. so it's light out when you look at the falls, and leave at 2 pm is a long day. 6-7 hours there with the drive is possible for the truly motivated. Stick to the Canada side.

If it's Valentine's Day there may be few hotel rooms otherwise I think it would be pretty cheap even overlooking the falls. A couple hotels have a view of the falls. I think two for sure do. Oakes Inn and Sheraton Fallsview.
