In addition to being home to NASA Marshall Space Flight Center and the Army Aviation & Missile Center, other nearby points of interest include:

  • The Huntsville Botanical Garden, open year-round and a short three minute drive from the hotel.
  • Stovehouse, a live entertainment, dining, and shopping venue, just five minutes from the hotel.

In addition to the hotel's dining venues, visit Bridge Street Town Centre (an 8 minute drive from the hotel) where you can choose from more than 25 dining options. Check out downtown Huntsville for even more dining and entertainment possibilities; it's less than 10 minutes away.
