Rich History

Repurposed into a hotel in 2020, the Armory hotel building dates back to World War II. Then a two-storied fortress with concrete walls, the Armory housed the 163rd Infantry Regiment of the Montana National Guard. 

It was designed by Fred Willson, the architect behind some of Bozeman’s historic buildings, including the Ellen Theatre, Baxter Hotel, Gallatin County Courthouse, and the Rialto Theatre. 

The Armory was built on land donated by the Story family, the first family to settle in the Gallatin Valley. The building served as an Armory until 2003, when the national guard relocated to a new facility. 

It sat abandoned for years before it was purchased by its current owners in 2012, who turned it into the tallest building in Bozeman. The new hotel was opened in 2020 and sits atop the original two-story structure.  

Noteworthy Features

After its completion in 1941, the Armory had maple floors, 18-inch-thick concrete walls, a soundproof room for the band, and a rifle range in the basement.

Today, the new Kimpton Armory Hotel is the tallest building in Downtown Bozeman. It houses three restaurants, including a rooftop restaurant. One of its most notable features is Armory Music Hall, a 600-seat venue for musical performances and other events. The hotel boasts 121 rooms with beautiful, contemporary décor and is manned by more than 70 staff members.
