Raleigh is the capital city of North Carolina and home to several academic institutions, including North Carolina State University. But don’t dismiss Raleigh simply as a college town. It’s a popular destination for business and leisure, as well as proud parents and sports fans. And with several hotels in Raleigh and nearby Durham and Chapel Hill, Holiday Inn Express® Hotels is the perfect choice for any and all Raleigh-bound travelers.
Guests of our downtown Raleigh hotels will enjoy our proximity to the city’s main business district, including RBC Tower (home of the Royal Bank of Canada) and the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts. Take a walking tour of the Fayetteville Street Historic District, where examples of Raleigh’s classic architecture, like the State Capitol Building, Briggs Hardware and the Sir Walter Raleigh Hotel, are sure to please. At night, enjoy a variety of cuisines in the City Market, a charming dining and shopping district that features beautiful old red brick storefronts and cobblestone streets.
Fashionistas will want to hit up the boutiques of Cameron Village, while hockey lovers will want to catch a Carolina Hurricanes game at the Raleigh Entertainment & Sports Arena. There’s also minor league baseball (Carolina Mudcats and Durham Bulls) and hometown collegiate favorites, the NC State University Wolfpack. Time your visit to our Raleigh hotels in the fall to take advantage of the North Carolina State Fair or in the spring for the World Beer Festival - Raleigh’s microbrewery scene has garnered the city much praise.
Round out your stay in our Raleigh hotels with a museum tour of the city. There’s local history at the Raleigh City Museum, a diorama and wildlife exhibits at the Museum of Natural Sciences and diverse permanent collections at the Museum of Art. Children will love the replica drugstore, complete with soda fountain, and Barbie exhibit at the North Carolina Museum of History, and the interactive exhibits and IMAX theatre at the Marbles Kids Museum offers fun for the whole family.
No matter your reason for visiting, guests of our Raleigh hotels will find there’s plenty to do and see in this exciting Southern city.
