Make yourself at home in our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Dover, the capital of Delaware. You'll soon be following in the footsteps of Revolutionary War soldiers on the historic Green and browsing handmade crafts in Amish country.
Guests of our hotels in Dover can begin their exploration on the Green, where colonial troops rallied under the cry for independence during the American Revolution. The Green is ringed by 18th-century buildings, including the Old State House. The modest legislative chambers and courtroom here served as the state capitol for nearly 200 years. The nearby Biggs Museum of American Art is filled with rare early American hand-carved furniture and precious silverware. The St. Jones Reserve wetlands are a short drive from our Dover hotels. Trails lead through marshes and forests, where game birds such as wild turkey and ringnecked pheasant rush among the reeds and white-tailed deer and rabbits find shelter beneath the trees.
Classic patchwork quilts, homemade jams and hand-crafted furniture line the shelves of Amish Country general stores, near our hotels in Dover. In the city, you'll find one-of-a-kind pottery and hand-blown glass in dozens of unique shops filling the streets around the Green. Inviting neighborhood eateries offer affordable meals and daily specials of hefty burgers, cheesy pizzas and filling Irish corned beef and cabbage. Delaware's revolutionaries debated the Declaration of Independence in the city's taverns in 1776. Today, you can join the locals in pubs near the Green, where local Fordham Copperhead Ale is always on tap.
Book our Holiday Inn Express hotels in Dover for an affordable journey into America's colonial past. Most of the city's museums and historic homes are open free to the public. The Dover Days celebration in May fills the Green with parades of citizens in colonial costume and free music concerts.
