Visitors to our hotels in Worcester will quickly feel the energy of the arts and culture that defines this historic Central Massachusetts city.
A great place to start is with a visit to the world-renowned Worcester Art Museum; the 35,000-piece collection features works by masters such as Cassatt, Monet and Sargent. Guests enjoying our Worcester accommodations should plan on at least half a day to get a glimpse into the 5,000 years of art history, all contained within the museum’s imposing, Renaissance-style Salisbury Street building.
As home to the Worcester Lunch Car Company, a builder of diner cars from 1906-1957, it’s not surprising that the diner was born in Worcester. You can count on these local favorites for hearty breakfasts, as well as satisfying late-night bites—hungry diners can find everything from historical diners to four-star restaurants, offering almost every type of cuisine on the length of Shrewsbury Street known as Restaurant Row.
With nine colleges and universities in Worcester, hotel guests will find plenty of bars and nightclubs on Shrewsbury, Pleasant and Canterbury Streets. In the summer, visitors can enjoy outdoor jazz concerts in Elm Park, and then take a walk through the Elm Street Historic District.
