Stay at one of our hotels in Tallahassee to explore Florida’s historic capital city, from sleepy streets under canopies of live oaks to the lively legislative scene in the New Capitol complex.
Our Tallahassee hotels are near downtown’s towering New Capitol Building. Take the elevators to the top-floor observatory for sweeping views over the Gulf of Mexico. Although the urban landscape is peppered with modern structures, our hotels in Tallahassee make it convenient to explore the city’s lovingly preserved historic districts. Hop aboard the free Old Town Trolley to see the 19th-century homes and buildings in Tallahassee’s historic downtown. Stop in at the Knott House Museum, former home of 19th-century politician William Knott and preserved just as it looked in 1928. Get your nature fix along the trails of nearby Apalachicola National Forest. Rent a canoe and paddle through the glassy river swamp on Owl Creek.
The city’s famous towering pines and sprawling live oaks form verdant tunnels along Tallahassee's five Canopy Roads, close to our hotels in Tallahassee. Drive along Old Bainbridge Road, past Lake Jackson Mounds State Archaeological Site, to nearby Havana. Park and browse this little village, famous for its antiques, handicrafts and collectibles. Historic Bradley’s Country Shop sells homemade sausage and offers tours. If you’re in the mood for a quick bite or a cold beer, head to the cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs along West Tennessee Street, which borders Florida State University. Florida State football and basketball fans fill the neighborhood sports bars, rooting on the home-team Seminoles.
Book a room in one of our Holiday Inn® Tallahassee hotels for a lively calendar of events and festivals throughout the year, from April’s Springtime Tallahassee, the citywide Mardi Gras-style festival, to the North Florida Festival in November.
