Whether you’re on a family getaway or just taking care of business, you’ll find plenty of historic charm, excitement and unique attractions in this vibrant city – and it’s all close to our Holiday Inn Express® Rochester hotels.
Spend an afternoon perusing the beautiful villages and towns that line the Erie Canal path or - if you’re feeling adventurous - rent a bike or put on some skates before stopping to shop or dine at the many great establishments along the way. Here with the family? The kids will love the Strong National Museum of Play with all its interactive exhibits and amazing Sesame Street section. Seabreeze Amusement Park is also a must see during your Rochester hotel stay, boasting a nearly 100-year-old carousel and a roller coaster that dates back to 1930. Did you know that Susan B. Anthony resided here in Rochester? You can even visit the house where she lived during the most politically active period of her life, the same place where she was arrested for voting in 1872.
After you’re done soaking up history, it’s time to shop. Aside from the specialty shops along the Erie Canal, you’ll also find upscale shops at many nearby towns, including Eastview Mall in Victor, Marketplace Mall in Henrietta, Pittsford Plaza in Pittsford and the massive Greece Ridge in Greece. There are plenty of outlet bargains just east of our Rochester hotels. During your stay, be sure to try a local culinary classic, Rochester’s very own “white hot,” a version of the hot dog, and our infamous “garbage plates.” Don’t worry; they taste better than they sound!
If you’re here on business, you’re near all the big companies, including Eastman Kodak, Ambrosia Software, Bausch & Lomb, Genesee Brewing Company, as well as the University of Rochester and the Eastman School of Music.
