Enjoy a warm Texas welcome at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Plano, an upscale suburb of Dallas. In no time you'll be spotting falcons in a local nature preserve and commemorating former President John F. Kennedy's death in downtown Dallas.
Our Plano hotels are near historic downtown, where simple turn-of-the-century storefronts enjoy new life as restaurants and specialty shops. An original Texas Electric Railway car from 1908 rests in the Interurban Railway Museum in downtown Haggard Park. Costumes and props-including the gun that shot J.R.-from the classic "Dallas" television drama are on display at Southfork Ranch, the homestead of the fictional Ewing clan. Tall ash, live oaks and cedar elm trees line the trails at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, a short drive from our hotels in Plano. The forests and prairies of this 289-acre preserve are the perfect stopover for hundreds of species of migratory birds, including snow geese, white ibis and even bald eagles.
Our hotels in Plano are near the Shops at Legacy mall, which draws Dallas shoppers with fashion boutiques and a movie theater. Thai, Italian, Japanese, Mexican-you'll find a variety of cuisines in the mall's cafes and bistros. In downtown Plano, local antiques and trendy clothing shops are mixed in with tea rooms, Italian eateries and cozy pubs.
