At I-90 exit 447, Hampton Inn Billings (5110 Southgate Dr., 406/248-4949, from $129), offers large comfortably furnished rooms convenient to the interstate. Facilities include a pool, fitness room, and complimentary breakfast.
At the center of downtown is the Crowne Plaza Billings (N. 27th St., 406/252-7400 or 800/588-7666, from $170). The Crowne Plaza offers the service and amenities you’d expect in an executive hotel (such as an indoor pool, health club, and hot tub), but with the added privilege of doing so in Montana’s tallest building (23 stories). The hotel underwent a complete renovation in 2008.
