Make the most of your leisure time at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Edison. You’ll soon be brushing shoulders with some of America’s leading thinkers at Rutgers University or strolling the paths of colorful azalea gardens.
A world of opportunities opens up at Rutgers University, just a short drive from our Edison hotels. Check the calendar for free public events or lectures at New Jersey’s premier state university, or visit Rutgers’ cultural attractions. On campus is the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Art Museum, home to the Schimmel Rare Book Library, an extensive Japanese art collection and the world’s largest collection of dissident Soviet artworks. Admission to the museum is free on the first Sunday of every month. Our hotels in Edison are also close to the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center, Edison’s leading location for professional meetings and conferences.
Natural attractions lie just minutes away from our hotels in Edison. Visit Rutgers Gardens for striking year-round plantings: the brilliant, spring-blooming Rhododendron and Azalea Garden, a collection of “chroma gardens” that bloom in red, yellow, blue and purple all season long, and New Jersey’s largest Bamboo Gardens, once a refuge for East Coast honeybees. Explore the great outdoors in the 70-mile-long Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park. Canoe or fish the canal, bicycle or jog its towpaths or take to the park trails in hiking boots or on cross-country skis.
Book a stay in our Edison hotels and explore the many sides of the Garden State. Spend an unforgettable evening experiencing New Jersey’s finest music and dance. The sparkling red-and-gold theater of the New Jersey Performing Arts Center features the area’s top entertainment, from renowned symphony orchestras to headliner pop concerts and world-class ballet.
