Corydon Indiana Hotel and Duke Energy Rates


Corydon Indiana Hotel, the Holiday Inn Express urges it’s customers to “play it safe” this winter season.

The winter winds a-blowin’! It’s hard not to notice the extreme weather that sometimes takes us by surprise in the winter months. When the shingles on your house start to fly away or your neighbor’s Chihuahua finds himself airborne, it’s time to think about safety!

Extreme weather can cause all kinds of headaches for traveler’s and local people alike. Large accumulations of snow, heavy rains, sleet/ice, and high winds can make driving the roadways extremely difficult and even dangerous. Safety is important during times like these and when it comes to road travel, it’s better not to take your chances. Getting off the roadways is the best bet. Finding shelter at places such as the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana is the smartest alternative to getting you back to your loved ones safely.

Severe winter weather can also have a great effect on the community as well, causing power outages and damage to local properties. The Southern Indiana region is all too familiar with this kind of severe weather, experiencing widespread outages throughout the area during the ice-storm in late January of 2009 and the high winds in September 2008 from Hurricane IKE.

Many people throughout the area found themselves without power for several days and looked not only to their friend’s/neighbor’s for help to cleanup, but also to the local hotels like the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana for a place to stay.

Locally stationed in Corydon, Indiana, Duke Energy also contributed to the efforts to put the local community’s power back on. This company, which serves the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana, has a total customer base of over 4.5 million people (both electric & gas services). With a network of 18,650 employees, Duke Energy works with local communities in times of emergency to repair downed power lines and remove possible hazards. Besides keeping the community safe, this innovative company is also working with the Indiana Utility Regulatory Commission to decrease energy usage 2 percent by 2019.

This kind of progressive thinking and willingness to lend a helping-hand is exactly what we need in times like these. At The Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana, we understand that sometimes severe weather can cause great distress. We can’t plan for these things to happen, but when you find that you need a place to find shelter for the night, the Holiday Inn Express is more than willing to keep you safe.

Business Hotel In Corydon Indiana




Corydon Indiana Hotel, the Holiday Inn Express located minutes from local artist shop Zimmerman Art Glass Company.

“Tis the season” for holiday shopping and waiting in long lines at the cash register. We all know what it’s like to endlessly search for that perfect Christmas gift for the ones we love. But with that singular relieving moment when you find that special something, comes a price…waiting in a dreadfully long line in order to pay & be on your merry way. It’s easy to forget during times like these, what the holiday season is really about: faith, tradition, and goodwill towards men.

In our quest for the best Christmas present, we often lose sight of these important values. The meaning or significance behind the gift is what should matter. Spending time with your loved ones and incorporating your own Christmas traditions are the things that make the holiday season one to remember. But you don’t have to avoid the whole “shopping scene” in order to keep your real holiday values intact.

The Zimmerman Art Glass Company near our Corydon Indiana Hotel features all the best qualities of this festive time of year. Fourth generation glass craftsman, Kerry Zimmerman carries on his great-grandfather’s traditional glass-making skills using the same tools today as his great-grandfather used when he began making glass pieces in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Opened in 1963 by Kerry’s father, The Zimmerman Art Glass Company in Corydon Indiana is renowned nationally for their beautiful glass art collectibles. Zimmerman’s offers a large variety of hand-sculpted pieces ranging from paperweights, decorative sculpture, and even holiday ornaments. Not only can you shop for the perfect holiday gift, but at Zimmerman Art Glass Company, you can also witness the glass-making process first-hand with interesting demonstrations. The Zimmerman’s proof of love and devotion to their craft is apparent in every piece created.

The Holiday Inn Express Hotel in Corydon Indiana is located only minutes away from Zimmerman Art Glass Company. Why not start a new holiday tradition this year? Spend the day experiencing the unique Zimmerman Art Glass Company and stay the night in one of our newly renovated rooms at the Holiday Inn Express.

Corydon Indiana Hotel Thanksgiving Rates


Corydon Indiana Hotel, the Holiday Inn Express is the perfect stop-off location for all those Thanksgiving Holiday travelers.

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? For most people in the United States, it’s sitting down to eat a turkey dinner and visiting with relatives. Traditionally, the holiday was a harvest festival meant as time to give thanks for the plentiful crops and good health. Most of us focus on the end result (i.e. a full stomach), but what about the effort it takes to get ourselves to those very special holiday feasts?

A notorious travel nightmare, the long Thanksgiving weekend hits it’s busiest travel days the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and the Sunday following. People often make a long weekend of it, leaving to their destination the day before and will return on Sunday before they start work on Monday. For the organized among us that think ahead, we plan around these peak travel days. But for the rest of us “flying by the seat of our pants,” traveling cannot be avoided. So we set off on our annual Thanksgiving expedition in search of loved ones and a hot meal.

Besides the awe-inspiring, can-shaped cranberry sauce we all know & love, we travel from table to table to unite with our loved ones. We give thanks, like so many before us, for the welfare of those who mean so much to us. And more important than any other time of the year, is the safe travel of those so dear to our hearts.

So whether you’ve planned ahead or not in this busy travel season, make sure to look out for yourself & others. Although the destination is important, plan to get there safely. At the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana, we offer guests the perfect stop-off location while traveling from table to table.

Corydon Indiana Hotel Government Rates

Corydon Indiana Hotel, the Holiday Inn Express recognizes the nation’s Veterans of war and commends it’s local VFW.

On November 11th people across the United States of America will celebrate, honor, and remember our nation’s bravest heroes and Veterans of war. We commemorate all who have served and sacrificed with heroism to protect this great country.

Initially recognized as an Armistice Day by US president Woodrow Wilson, November 11th of 1919 marked the one year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month (November 11) in 1918 signified the exact moment the war officially came to an end with the German signing of the peace treaty. Several years and wars later, the celebration of Armistice Day extended to include and honor all veterans. On November 8, 1954, congress officially renamed “Armistice Day” to “Veterans Day,” the holiday we all know now. Veterans Day allows us as a nation to give a great big “Thank You” to all those who have served to protect us all. As our current president Barack Obama quotes in his August 17th, 2009 address in Phoenix, Arizona, “We can never say it enough: for your service in war and peace, thank you VFW.”

This annual holiday also gives us the opportunity to recognize our local heroes. Here in Corydon, Indiana, members of the VFW and local community show their respect for those who have fallen and sacrificed their lives courageously by holding a service in their honor at the Cedar Hill Cemetery (at the Veterans Monument). Here at The Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana we commend our local VFW and are pleased to extend a special military discount to all veterans as well as active duty military.

Stay with us at the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana at a special military rate. Make your reservation today at our Corydon Indiana Hotel The Holiday Inn Express by calling us directly at 812-738-1623 or visit our Holiday Inn Express Corydon website online.

Hotel in Corydon Indiana Getaway


Corydon Indiana Hotel, the Holiday Inn Express offers the perfect location for a weekend getaway.

The holiday season is just around the corner, and for many of us, this festive time often leaves us drained by the time we say “Happy New Year.” Like busy little bees, we buzz around accomplishing an enormous checklist of daily tasks. But the demands of daily life can have a way of catching up to us if we are not careful. The combination of work, school, family, social obligations, or debt can put a strain on any normal person. In this day and age, people seem to strive to be “superhuman,” but we shouldn’t forget that we are not invincible.

With new threats such as the Swine flu on the rise and the cold & flu season just ahead of us, it is imperative that we take precautions to prevent sickness. The best way to ward off sickness is to use your own common sense by taking care of yourself with good hygiene, drinking plenty of fluids, eating a healthy diet, getting enough rest, and avoiding excessive stress.

Although considered a typical part of the holiday season, stress and exhaustion should not be ignored. Often the warning signs go unchecked and result in mental or physical burnout and even sickness. But this can all be avoided if we learn to recognize these signs before they become a problem. The first step is to identify the stressors in your life, whether it’s being overwhelmed, having too much to do, internal or external pressures, or family problems, because all these can directly affect your anxiety levels. Next, changing what you can or working with the problem can help to gain control of the situation. De-stressing and avoiding exhaustion are the best ways to keep from getting burned out or sick. But allowing yourself adequate downtime as well as a sufficient amount of sleep can do a world of good. Taking a weekend vacation can be a great way to get away from those day to day pressures.

A quick weekend getaway can be just the thing to prevent getting burned out. With very little effort, a relaxing stay can be set up to accommodate your needs. The Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana offers the perfect place to rest. With it’s clean, comfortable rooms and indoor heated pool & hot tub, the stress will seem to melt away.

So enjoy a weekend getaway with us at the Holiday Inn Express in Corydon Indiana. Make your reservation today at our Corydon Indiana Hotel The Holiday Inn Express by calling us directly at 812-738-1623 or visit our Holiday Inn Express Corydon website online.

Central to this historic district is The Old Capitol Building. This two-story, Federal-style building features two-foot thick walls constructed of limestone and stands mostly unchanged from the day it was built. Several other buildings and sites add to the Historical status of Corydon Indiana. Buildings located within the district include: The Harrison County Courthouse, The First State Office Building, The Grand Masonic Lodge, The Old Capitol Bank, The Kinter House Hotel, The Leora Brown School, Cedar Glade, Westfall House, Posey House, and Indiana’s oldest standing Methodist Church.

Hotel Near Squire Boone Caverns
















"America's Most Spectacular
Underground Adventure"

Squire Boone was one of the most prominent pioneers in the annals of Kentucky and Indiana history. He gained fame as an explorer, hunter, gunsmith, statesman, and minister. He helped to clear the Wilderness Road and, in his later years, was honored by Congress for his service during the Revolutionary War. Mr. Boone fought in many hand-to-hand battles, including the Battle of Fort Boonesboro. Eleven times he was wounded, taking him close to death on several occasions.

It was Squire Boone and his brother, Daniel, who discovered these caverns in 1790. Squire later escaped a band of hostile Indians by hiding in the caverns. From that day on, he considered the beautiful valley by the caverns to be holy ground. He eventually settled here with his wife, four sons and their families. Onto one of the foundation stones of his mill he carved this inscription: "My God my life hath much befriended, I'll praise Him till my days are ended." Upon his death in 1815, Squire Boone was laid to rest within his beloved cave as he had requested.
