Who else is looking for something to brighten the outlook for 2021? Is Montana on a future itinerary or do you have clients looking for a new meeting destination? If so, Western Montana’s Glacier Country has new and exciting lodging options, some open now and others coming soon. Whether you are a meeting planner and need a luxury incentive location with lots of open-air adventure options or a tour operator needing a great overnight hotel located within walking distance to restaurants and cafes on your Montana itinerary, we’ve got you covered. Without further ado, here are a few of our lodging options that are new in 2021.

AC Hotel Missoula Downtown
The new AC Hotel by Marriott in downtown Missoula is in its finishing stages. The AC Hotel’s beauty and classic modern design are born of its Spanish roots and European soul. It was designed for the creative, well-traveled, entrepreneurial spirit constantly on the go and those who appreciate a well-designed hotel that allows them to focus, be present, and connect with others. The AC will offer 105 well-appointed rooms and a small meeting space with future plans for a rooftop bar to take in the breathtaking Missoula views. Opening March 2021.

It will be an ideal location to gather, with an interior landscaped courtyard along with additional outdoor patio options. Small conferences or group gatherings can take place in the 500 square feet of meeting space. Located on the ground floor, guests are invited to start their day by visiting Black Coffee Roasting Co. for coffee/espresso and light bites. Opening fall 2021.
