Our Hotel

From the State Capitol to the Raging Rivers Waterpark, visitors to our Holiday Inn will love exploring the city’s most popular attractions. Spend some time on the miles of recreational trails that follow the Missouri River and circle the entire town. 

No trip to this city would be complete without visiting the State Museum at the Heritage Center,including a gift shop and café. If you’d like to get off the beaten path, this city is full of surprises…all served up with plenty of North Dakota hospitality. For example, you can explore local artists at the Bismarck Arts & Galleries then head up the street to the unique, fun local restaurants and pubs. If retail therapy is on your agenda, stay downtown to find treasures in the boutiques and then hit the Kirkwood Mall, the biggest in the region.

After a day of exploring, when the sun goes down, come back to the Holiday Inn Bismarck to relax in our lounge or sit by the pool and spa. Our unobstructed view of the city skyline is material for stunning views and you may even catch a glimpse of animals in their natural habitat. In the morning take advantage of our Best for Breakfast delivered to your room or in the sunny and inviting restaurant.
