Stay at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Fort Myers and immerse yourself in Florida’s natural attractions. Spend time on the beach or hike the trails of the Calusa Nature Center to discover an undeveloped Gulf Coast landscape.
Our hotels in Fort Myers are a short drive to Fort Myers Beach. Spend a relaxing afternoon in the sun, swimming in the calm waves or watching the brilliant colors of the sunset at dusk. Alligators make their home in the mangrove forests of the Calusa Nature Center. Wooden boardwalks lead visitors through the thick, unspoiled wetlands around the Caloosahatchee River to spot ospreys, egrets, and turtles. Thomas Edison and Henry Ford spent their winters in Florida and our Fort Myers hotels are near their sprawling vacation estates. You can see their in-ground pools—a modern marvel during their time—and their private laboratories where they tested inventions during breaks from enjoying the Florida sunshine.
It’s a short drive from our hotels in Fort Myers to the fresh seafood restaurants. Gulf Coast fishermen deliver freshly-caught grouper, ahi tuna and crab to waterfront restaurants and cafés in Fort Myers Beach, where it is served up with vegetables grown in nearby central Florida. Sip a citrus cocktail and relax on a sultry Florida evening, taking in the live music scene in Fort Myers Beach and nearby Sanibel Island. The evening’s musical mix is likely to range from the Beach Boys’ harmonies and Jimmy Buffet’s relaxed island tunes, to Jamaican steel drums and Bob Marley’s reggae songs.
Book our Holiday Inn hotels in Fort Myers in February, for the art and food fairs of ArtFest in Fort Myers Beach, or in spring, when the Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival fills the streets with live music and vendors selling Florida’s favorite shellfish.
