Stay at one of our Holiday Inn® hotels in Amarillo to discover the beating heart of the Texas Panhandle. Get your fill of horse racing, riding and roping at the American Quarter Horse Museum, and satisfy a Texas-size appetite at the Big Texan Steak Ranch.
Our hotels in Amarillo make it easy to discover the colorful cowboy culture of this Texas town. Displays at the American Quarter Horse Museum explain the powerful animal’s importance to cowboys and rodeo riders alike. Our Amarillo hotels are near the award-winning Wonderland Amusement Park, where the whole family can cool off on breezy roller coasters and refreshing water rides. Is it a work of art…or just a neatly arranged pile of junk? That’s the question everyone asks at Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo’s world-famous row of 10 vintage Cadillacs brightly spray-painted and planted nose-first in the dusty Texas desert.
You haven’t been to Texas if you haven’t tried a Texas-size steak. Our Amarillo hotels are near the granddaddy of all steak houses, the Big Texan Steak Ranch, where you’re challenged to eat a 72-ounce steak and all the fixings—it’s free if you succeed. Or dig into Texas favorites like seasoned, barbecued ribs at one of the many restaurants in downtown Amarillo. Our hotels in Amarillo are also near Wolflin Village, where independent boutique shops share space with an eclectic mix of restaurant choices, from American favorites to Tex-Mex cantinas and Asian eateries.
Book a room at our Amarillo hotels in June, when the Route 66 International Festival celebrates the Mother Road with a car show, motorcycle rally and a street fair. But Texas’s giant-size welcome is on tap for visitors year-round.
