Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Charleston, West Virginia. You’ll soon be admiring the shining gold dome of the State Capitol and shopping for traditional mountain crafts in downtown Charleston.
The striking gold-leaf dome of the West Virginia State Capitol sparkles in the sunshine, towering over Charleston and the banks of the Kanawha River. Our Charleston hotels are near the Capitol and the West Virginia Cultural Center next door, where you can explore West Virginia’s settlement, its mining history and its role in the Civil War. Relax and soak up Charleston’s cultural mix of traditional mountain craft and contemporary design. Visit the Cultural Center’s gift shop to purchase locally made blown glass vases and hand-carved wooden kitchen bowls. Or head downtown from our hotels in Charleston to mountain-craft boutiques and three levels of shops in Charleston Town Center Mall for a full immersion in retail therapy.
Charleston’s Capitol Market was once the city’s train station, but these days it’s the place to go for West Virginia-grown produce, cheese and local wines. Head out bright and early from our hotels in Charleston for a steaming cup of home-brewed coffee and pastries and lunchtime picnic supplies. After hours you can dine on menus of fresh seafood and steaks at Capitol Market restaurants. Charleston’s nighttime entertainment spills out onto the streets of downtown, with martini bars amplifying electronic tunes and comfy coffee shops showcasing live jazz. Or hit one of the headliner concerts and orchestral performances at the Clay Center.
