Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Bradenton. In no time you'll be kayaking the silky Gulf waters or watching artists at work at the Village of the Arts.
Tucked among towering palms and tropical blooms, the streets of downtown Bradenton hold chic boutiques and restaurants. Wooden bungalows have been reinvented as colorful art galleries. Guests of our hotels in Bradenton can get up close with local marine life, see a planetarium show and learn about local history at downtown's South Florida Museum. Take a short drive south to the Village of the Arts, the area's illustrious artists-in-residence community, where it's free to browse the artisans' galleries. After a good night's sleep at our Bradenton hotels, head to the beaches along Palma Sola Bay. Watch sailboats and windsurfers skim the waters or rent a kayak to paddle about the bay. Enjoy a picnic along the water's edge, but save room for ice cream from one of the beachside stands.
Our hotels in Bradenton put you near the town's casual and affordable dining options, from brick-oven pizza to fish sandwiches. You can't go wrong with the slow-cooked entrees at Hickory Hollow Barbecue or the budget-friendly Amish classics at Miller's Dutch Kitchen. Head out from one of our Bradenton hotels and explore historic Cortez Fishing Village, where brown and white pelicans guard the public docks and the Star Fish Company serves up memorable grouper sandwiches. Cortez Kitchen is a local favorite for enjoying live music and waterfront sunsets.
Book your room our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Bradenton in March to catch the Pittsburgh Pirates' baseball spring training at McKechnie Field. Or visit the Village of the Arts in December for An Old-Fashioned Village Christmas, when the colorful cottages are strung with glittering lights.
