Stay at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Charleston, West Virginia, and get acquainted with this friendly West Virginia capital city. Discover historic artifacts and local crafts at the West Virginia Cultural Center or enjoy a modern dance performance at the Clay Center.
A stay at our hotels in Charleston puts you at the heart of West Virginia culture. The gleaming gold dome of the West Virginia State Capitol building looms over the stately homes in the East End Historic District, once home to the city’s 19th-century movers and shakers. The city’s rugged frontier past is on display at the nearby West Virginia Cultural Center, where historic artifacts include Daniel Boone’s rifle and George Washington’s telescope. Downtown, the Clay Center emphasizes modern arts and entertainment. Programs at this concert hall range from modern dance performances to traditional symphony orchestra and headliner concerts—all within walking distance of our Charleston hotels. .
Short drives from our hotels in Charleston take you to the food shops and restaurants of the Capitol Market. Shop for locally grown strawberries, peaches and artisanal cheeses at the market food stalls for an inexpensive but elegant picnic lunch. Or settle into a market cafe with a cup of freshly roasted coffee, scones and the local newspaper. At dinner, restaurants at the Capitol Market buzz with young professionals. After dinner, head downtown for a nightcap. The city center is the place to go for martini bars and live music, from traditional Appalachian mountain bluegrass to cool jazz and electonica. .
Reserve a room at our Holiday Inn Charleston hotels in spring, when the rhododendrons and redbud trees burst into bloom in the surrounding Appalachian mountains, or in winter, when downtown Charleston is decked out in sparkling holiday lights.
