Discover our hotels in Fresno, in California’s fertile Central Valley. Explore an underground home built by hand and plan an excursion into nearby National Parks.
Our Fresno hotels are a short drive from the subterranean villa of Forestiere Underground Gardens. An Italian immigrant hand-built this comfortable home of open courtyards, Roman archways and cozy rooms completely underground to take advantage of cooler temperatures away from the Fresno sun. For a taste of the Central Valley’s agricultural heritage, sample syrah and cabernet handcrafted by the vintners at Tivy Mountain Vineyard and dip into a variety of flaxen olive oils pressed at Wiebe Farms. Families staying at our hotels in Fresno can enjoy a day on the old fashioned storybook rides at Rotary Storyland & Playland, where nursery rhymes and fables come to life with pint-sized rollercoasters, Ferris wheels and trains.
Our Fresno hotels are near the Fig Garden mall outdoor promenade. Cool down with a scoop of ice cream or a fruit smoothie in between browsing big-name American clothing and shoe brands. Local shops in Fresno’s Tower District sell vinyl records, unique costume jewelry and local photography and art while diners and restaurants dish up chicken pot pie, cheesy pizzas and hearty pub grub. Guests of our hotels in Fresno will want to check the calendar of the Warnors Theatre downtown. Your ticket to a comedy show or concert grants you access to the splendid Art Deco auditorium with its gold and blue dome and wrought iron chandelier overhead.
Book our Holiday Inn® hotels in Fresno to explore the best of California’s National Parks. In spring, purple and yellow wildflowers carpet the meadows of Sequoia and Kings Canyon. In winter, fresh snowfall turns the pine forests and granite peaks of Yosemite into a winter paradise for snow-shoeing and sledding.
