Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Anderson. In no time you’ll be touring the historic downtown district or shopping the South’s largest flea market.
One of the world’s first cities to use hydroelectric power, 'The Electric City' is a modern town with a vibrant past. Our Anderson hotels are near the historic downtown, where you can stroll 16 tree-lined blocks of beautifully preserved turn-of-the-century architecture, statues and memorials. The city grew up around the gabled Anderson County Courthouse, built in 1898, and the downtown area is peppered with handsome Victorian buildings and stately antebellum homes. Check out the genuine livery stable and other historical exhibits at the Anderson County Museum near our hotels in Anderson; admission is free. It's also free to stroll the woodland trails in the South Carolina Botanical Garden, on the campus of Clemson University.
