Step back in time to colonial America during a stay at our Holiday Inn® St. Augustine hotels. In the Old City, experience St. Augustine’s Spanish heritage as you sip sweet tea on an 18th-century patio in the shade of live oaks.
Visitors to our St. Augustine hotels get acquainted with the city’s history in the Colonial Spanish Quarter, where centuries-old commercial buildings are made of coquina, or ground seashells. Costumed interpreters dip candles, forge steel tools and carve furniture to recreate the feel of 17th-century life here. The imposing stone castle Castillo de San Marcos stands watch over the city's shoreline. Imagine the daily life of a Spanish musketeer as you tour the fort’s powder magazines, guard rooms and dank prison cell. Our hotels in St. Augustine lie near the Old City, where America’s Oldest House and the Oldest Wooden Schoolhouse evoke 18th-century life, their tiny courtyards brightened with towering hollyhocks and trickling stone fountains.
From our hotels in St. Augustine it’s an easy morning walk to the beach, where you can spend the day relaxing in the sun. Build sand castles and play in the Atlantic surf, cooled by briny ocean breezes. Ride the hop-on/hop-off Old Town Trolley across cobbled streets and past the shady coquina courtyards of another era. Our St. Augustine hotels are a short trolley ride from historic St. George Street. Here antique shops and gallery windows display colorful art tiles, silver bric-a-brac antiques and watercolor paintings of St. Augustine fringed in Spanish moss. Dine in the Old City on fresh local seafood.
Immerse yourself in America’s Spanish colonial history at our Holiday Inn St. Augustine hotels. Book a room in March, when costumed interpreters relive the 1668 military sack of St. Augustine, or in December, when the city sparkles with millions of holiday lights.
