Reserve a room in one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Kalamazoo for a West Michigan getaway. In no time you’ll be soaring into the wild blue yonder at the Air Zoo or admiring the inspirational artworks in the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts.
Our Kalamazoo hotels make exploring the city easy and fun. Take the kids to the Air Zoo’s collection of historic gliders to learn the ins and outs of early flight. Grab the controls of the state-of-the-art flight simulators to get a real feel for diving, spiraling and landing real airplanes. Relax from your action-packed flight in the cool environs of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts in downtown Kalamazoo. This free public gallery space is filled with acrylic landscapes, vibrant art glass and bronze sculptures. A stay in our hotels in Kalamazoo also puts you near Western Michigan University, site of free public events, headliner concerts and exhilarating sporting events year-round.
Just a short drive from our hotels in Kalamazoo, Western Michigan University serves diners at bohemian bistros, inexpensive buffets and laid-back cafes. Kalamazoo’s historic Haymarket district is a treasure trove of eclectic dining, “slow food” restaurants and boutique shopping. Dine on salads and sandwiches loaded with fresh produce and artisanal meats and cheeses to the accompaniment of locally produced wine and beer. In the evening, join the legions of fans at Bell’s Brewery for a glass of the local favorite microbrew, Oberon wheat beer, garnished with a fresh slice of orange.
Book a stay in our Kalamazoo hotels in spring and summer, when the city’s farmers markets sell fresh produce. In the fall, Western Michigan University fans don their brown and gold colors for rousing Broncos football games.
