Holiday Inn Express Dallas Fair Park is the ideal choice if traveling to the East Dallas/Mesquite area. We are positioned off I-30 near the Mesquite border. Holiday Inn Express® Dallas Fair Park puts guests minutes from popular attractions, business destinations and Downtown Dallas. We opened the doors in 2009 and have been providing top-notch accommodations ever since. Fair Park, home of The Texas State Fair, is located only 5 miles from the property. Our location grants guests access to many attractions and destinations like the Music Hall at Fair Park, The Dallas Arboretum, White Rock Lake, the Cotton Bowl, Dallas Convention Center, Deep Ellum, Lakewood, Dallas Zoo, Gexa Energy Pavilion, South Side Ballroom (The Palladium), American Airlines Center (AAC), as well as Mesquite Arena. Our Business Travelers appreciate our professional and friendly staff, flexible meeting space, and our close proximity to Downtown, Dallas Convention Center, Dallas Market Hall. Dallas Love Field Airport (DAL) is just 14 miles from our hotel, and the Dallas Fort Worth Airport (DFW) is less than 30 miles away – a direct path on I-30 to our door. Whether you are planning to attend a sporting event or concert at the AAC, a musical at Music Hall or a business conference at the Dallas Convention Center, our hotel is the perfect choice.

PERFECT FOR A FAMILY

Our family consists of 3 kids (16,12, &9) and us. We comfortably stayed in the suite they gave us. It was perfect for our family and the staff were all so sweet. The complimentary breakfast was the best free breakfast we've had at a hotel to date. We are planning our family trip for next year and we WILL be staying at the Holiday Inn Express with this type of suite again.

We went for an overnight stay and it was great. The room was very clean and beds were extremely comfortable. Staff was very personable and friendly. Easy access right off of main highway. Would stay here again without a doubt.
