The Homewood Suites by Hilton Fresno hotel comes complete with an outdoor pool, fitness center, basketball courts, and billiards room to help visitors keep themselves in shape and entertained. The pet-friendly hourly rooms also feature free Wi-Fi and free parking, with local attractions ranging from well-kept gardens to Yosemite National Park, and Fresno Chaffee Zoo.
Global Menu – Old world décor meets bright Mediterranean fare such as pastas and seafood at Phoenician Garden Mediterranean Bar and Grill, whilst classic Ethiopian dishes are on the menu at Fasika Ethiopian Restaurant. Sinophiles can sate their appetites with treats from the Far East at Hunan Chinese Restaurant, and fans of barbecue can find what they’re looking for at Yummy BBQ. Other local styles include pub grub, Thai, and Tex Mex.
Shinzen Friendship Garden – A short way north of the day use rooms is the Shinzen Friendship Garden. This tranquil horticulture site was created by local Japanese-Americans and is a great place to rest and relax beside the koi pond, enjoy the teahouse, or just get some ideas for your own garden. If you’re especially keen on the green stuff then head southwest to check out the Forestiere Underground Gardens.
Fresno Art Museum – Fresno Art Museum is straight south from the hotel door and displays Mexican art both modern and ancient. The galleries also exhibit American creative endeavors in visual media. There’s a sculpture garden, and the exhibits are regularly rotated to keep the galleries fresh.
Fresno Chaffee Zoo – Not far away is Fresno Chaffee Zoo, a wildlife center that features a range of animals from across the globe, including elephants, wildebeest, and giraffes as part of the Safari exhibit. Giraffe fans will be pleased to know there’s the opportunity to feed the elegant giants, and stingray touch pools too.
