New Hotel Downtown in Final Review Stage With the City

On Feb 19, 2024

Plans for a new hotel at 507 W. Main Street are in the final review stage with the city of Bozeman. The lot has been vacant since 2017 when the abandoned City Center Motor Inn and Black Angus restaurant were demolished.

According to documents submitted to the city, the hotel will be 4 stories and 91,556 sq.ft. There will be retail space on the ground level as well as a pool. According to the plans, the hotel will be a Hampton Inn & Suites. The developers are listed as Bozeman Exchange Associates, LLC / Bennett Hospitality out of Charleston, South Carolina.

The property at 507 W. Main Street was sold in 2015. It was listed at $2,900,000 and included the abandoned City Center Motor Inn building and a building on the corner of 7th and Mendenhall that was last the Café International restaurant but has been sitting empty for years. The developers of the hotel own 4 additional lots along W. Mendenhall that are not included in the site plan for the hotel, including the lot where the old Café International building stands. 

As we were writing this post, we took a little trip down memory lane thanks to Google Street View. Scroll to the bottom of this page for some photos of the old City Center Inn, Black Angus, and Café International building. 

This is not the only major development happening in this area of downtown Bozeman, the Freestone on Main building is currently under construction on the lot just east of this development, where Bamboo Garden used to be. You can learn more about Freestone on Main here.

I guess this means we have to give up any hope we had left of Café International coming back. That food was some of the best in Bozeman back in the day. If you'd like to stay in the loop with local information like this, sign up for our Local Info newsletter
