Now gambling on Mountain Time! MCR — the country’s 4th-largest hotel owner-operator — has acquired the 146-room Hilton Garden Inn Missoula in the heart of the northern Rockies.

The hotel is in the growing city of Missoula, just down the road from Missoula International Airport. If you’re searching for a nature-filled getaway this fall, look no further! Big Sky Country is the place for you.

Missoula, known as the Garden City for its lush green landscape, attracts travelers from across the globe each year for its outdoor activities. With more than 400 acres of parkland, 22 miles of trails and 5,000 acres of conserved open space, there is no shortage of hiking spots and beautiful views! The Clark Fork, Bitterroot and Blackfoot Rivers all converge in Missoula, making it one of the best spots for white water rafting and fly fishing in the Northwest U.S. The city is known for its blue-ribbon trout fishing, as seen in the 1992 movie A River Runs Through It starring Brad Pitt and set in Missoula. Be sure to pack your hiking boots and fishing rods!

If you’re more of a snowbird, plan your winter visit and get that ski gear ready! Montana has some of the most spectacular ski areas in the world and Missoula is a short distance to many of the greats. The Montana Snowbowl, a local favorite, is just a 20-minute drive from the Hilton Garden Inn. Feeling adventurous? The Snowbowl features a vertical drop of 2,600 feet and some of the steepest trails in the country.

Another claim to fame for Missoula is the University of Montana, which has a 230-acre campus just south of downtown and is home to more than 11,000 students annually. Football season has just begun for the Division I Montana Grizzlies! Grab your tickets now and join the other 25,000 fans that frequent Washington-Grizzly Stadium each fall.

After a long day in the great outdoors, head back to the Hilton Garden Inn for a far-from-average hotel experience. This hotel includes two restaurants, a casino and 22,000 square feet of event space all under one roof! Grab a table at the Blue Canyon Kitchen & Tavern for a true Montana dining experience or try your luck at a live poker game and hit the slot machines at our in-house Silver Creek Casino. On your way out in the morning for another fun-filled day, recharge at the Garden Grille, where you can enjoy your cooked-to-order breakfast and coffee by the warm comfort of the fireplace.
