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.
Book a stay in our Holiday Inn Express Charleston hotels to experience West Virginia's lively capital, set against the rugged natural beauty of the Appalachian Mountains.

Holiday Inn Express & Suites Charleston-Southridge
We really enjoyed our room and the hotel. The staff was super nice and attentive. We were greeted every time we came in the door. The only complaint is that the breakfast offered was out of several[More] food items and plates. The food they offered was good and the cinnamon rolls are great.[Less]
Would use again.
Would use again. The only issue was a plumber access panel was left open in the bathroom from an earlier repair and it gave my daughter a creepy feeling. Also, one of the two lights in the bathroom[More] was burned out which didn't help. There were no drinks or snacks available in the lobby.[Less]
Awesome Holiday Inn Express
Meet with Family for a Motorcycle tour of WV. We were greeted by the Hotel staff upon arrival, made us feel very comfortable. After a good night sleep the wished us safe travels on our trip. Great[More] staff and Hotel[Less]
Mark and Sonja great service
My sister and I was in Kanawha City for our brothers funeral. I have to say that was the best hotel staff we have ever seen. Mark was so friendly and helpful the 3 days we stayed there. We have such[More] a good visit with him each time we entered or left the hotel. He is such a great asset to your hotel. Give the man a raise. Ha ha. He was easy to talk to and took the time to make us feel welcomed and took care of of all our needs. More hotels could take a lesson from him in how to run a business. And want to give praise to Sonja who was the breakfast staff. Again another friendly person, the food was so good, hot and ready when we arrived each morning. She also took the time to greet us each morning and if we needed anything, she was more than gracious to see that we were taken care of. Job well done by these two wonderful persons. Please let them know how much we appreciated their dedication and pride in their jobs. God bless these two.[Less]
We have stayed in a lot of hotels for our Business and for pleasure. Recently we stayed in a hotel that honestly made me not want to stay in another--it wasn't this one! I was so impressed with the[More] cleanliness of this hotel. It even smelled fresh! The room configuration was wonderful and it was spotless! The breakfast was very good and the employees were so helpful. We were offered a water when we left--how nice is that?!! I wish it was closer to our home but for that one night, it WAS home!![Less]
Close to the freeway, and gas stations- easy in/out
This property was a little below average in terms of modernization, but the proximity to the freeway, and gas stations make this a good stopping point along a long drive. Typical in most respects[More] but a bit dated.[Less]
Enjoyed my overnight stay
I enjoyed my overnight stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Charleston West Virginia Civic Center. The room & hotel were what I expect from a Holiday Inn. I will be staying there again when passing[More] through there again.[Less]
