Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Irving, a suburb of Dallas, Texas. In no time you’ll be investigating the assassination of John F. Kennedy, cheering local cowboys in a rodeo and kicking up your heels at Gilley’s Dallas.
Our Irving hotels are a short drive from the Dallas Arts District. Life-like Rodin nudes, textured Giacometti busts and abstract Miró totems fill the Nasher Sculpture Museum. Across the street, the Dallas Museum of Art displays statues of Maya and Aztec gods and colorful impressionistic paintings by European masters van Gogh and Cézanne. In the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, follow a minute-by-minute account of November 22, 1963, when Lee Harvey Oswald shot President John F. Kennedy. The southeast-facing window where Oswald crouched with his rifle is preserved behind glass.
The original Neiman Marcus store still sells luxury goods on Main Street, but the city’s serious shoppers prefer Uptown’s McKinney Avenue, lined with antiques shops, art galleries and inviting cafes. Local Western wear stores can outfit guests of our Irving hotels in fine silver belt buckles and hand-stitched cowboy boots fit for the Gilley’s Dallas dance floor. Fill up on thick sirloin steak or a barbecue brisket dinner before sashaying over to Gilley’s, where you’ll two-step to twangy country guitar. Check the calendar beforehand—big-ticket rock shows also play to the Gilley’s crowd.
Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Irving to take in major Dallas sporting events. The Dallas Cowboys play at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, a short drive from our Irving hotels. Home game tickets are hard to come by, but you can tour the stadium to toss a few passes on the field. Arlington is also home to the Texas Rangers baseball team. Or, holler for your favorite cowboy at the Mesquite Championship Rodeo.
Our location is key, with convenient access to Downtown Dallas, Garland and Mesquite where you will find a myriad of venues like Fair Park, The Dallas Arboretum, White Rock Lake, Dallas Convention Center, Dallas Market Hall, Gexa Energy Pavilion, American Airlines Center, as well as Mesquite Arena.
