Where to Stay in Bozeman this Winter

Wondering where to stay in Bozeman this winter? These cool hot spots are a favorite with locals and visitors alike. Each offer their own unique guest experience and they’re all a short drive to Big Sky and walking distance to Bozeman’s popular dining and shopping district on Main Street.


Kimpton Armory Hotel

The Armory’s nine-story building is a standout in Bozeman’s downtown skyline because of its Art Deco flair. This brand-new boutique hotel has high-end accommodations and top-notch service. The unique amenities include a rooftop pool and bar, musical hall, fitness center, and two restaurants. The dining and entertainment options are the big selling points. Slip into one of Fielding’s awesome banquets and enjoy upscale comfort food and craft cocktails. If you want something more casual there is Tune Up lounge and Sky Shed, the Armory’s glass-enclosed rooftop bar. In the future, the musical hall and 500-person venue will host special events. Check out the Grand Opening offer.

The Lark

The Lark is a boutique hotel that offers a unique Montana adventure. The comfortable, modern rooms feature local artwork mixed with metal, leather and wood fixtures from local craftsman and suppliers. The big, walk-in glass shower is a great luxury after a long, cold day of skiing, shopping or taking in the sights. The Lark sits where Main Street begins. The cozy lobby and outdoor patio are a perfect place to people watch with a glass of wine in front of the fire. Check out the Festive Season Savings Package.

The Element Bozeman

If you’re a loyal Marriott member, you’ll love the Element in downtown Bozeman. This sleek, super modern hotel is just one block off Main Street. Leisure and business travelers will both appreciate the comfortable beds, a kitchenette with full-size fridge, gym and indoor pool, complimentary airport shuttle and electric car charging station. The adjoining restaurant, Squire House, is an inviting place to grab a hearty meal and a good drink.


Don’t worry, they have champagne. This locally-owned boutique hotel is a fun place to go for your next girls’ getaway or staycation. You will feel like you stepped into the swinging ’60s in the modern, comfortable rooms. Amenities include in-room champagne, fire pit, charging station for your electric car, and in-room blowouts and massages. The cafe on the property, The Farmer’s Daughter, has fresh, healthy food and is a favorite breakfast/brunch stop for locals. RSVP is the farthest from Main Street but it is at the heart of the revitalization taking place on Seventh Avenue, Bozeman’s next tourist destination.

Bozeman is a great place to visit in the winter, or really any time of the year. But winter is a great season to settle in and just enjoy the cozy weather with a good drink. I talk about some great happy hours here. If you’re thinking of extending your stay in Bozeman indefinitely, contact me at
