Winston-Salem shines as one of North Carolina’s most dynamic small cities. Book a stay in our Holiday Inn® Winston-Salem hotels to discover the city’s historic roots as a Moravian enclave and celebrate its passion for the arts.
Step back into the 18th century at the city’s top attraction, Old Salem Museum & Gardens. Settled by Moravian missionaries, Old Salem is a living-history restoration of the town built by this tight-knit religious community in the 1770s. Look for the enormous tin coffee pot, the symbol of Old Salem—said to hold 740 cups of coffee. Wealth from the 20th-century tobacco trade built the city’s stately mansions and skyscrapers—including the 1929 Reynolds Building, whose Art Deco styling was the prototype for New York’s Empire State Building. Winston-Salem is an energetic college town, home to Wake Forest University. Our Winston-Salem hotels are also close to the city’s trove of museums. The American art on display in Reynolda House, the former estate of tobacco magnate R.J. Reynolds, includes masterpieces by Mary Cassatt, Thomas Eakins, and Grant Wood.
From our Winston-Salem hotels, take in the colorful mural backdrops of DADA, the local nickname for the Downtown Arts District, newly reinvigorated with galleries and cafes. Or meander the pretty, pedestrian-friendly streets of the West End Historic District, known as the city’s “Front Porch” for its beckoning front porches, not to mention restaurants, shops and taverns. Winston-Salem is also the gateway to Yadkin Valley wineries, the state’s premier wine-producing region, where wineries offer daily tours and tastings. Take home a bottle of local wine and a tin of Moravian ginger cookies from Old Salem.
