BILLINGS, Mont.—A new La Quinta Inn & Suites in Billings, Mont., has opened to serve the growing number of visitors traveling to the area. This newly constructed, four–story hotel offers 85 guestrooms, meeting space, an onsite business and fitness center, and a large indoor swimming pool.
The hotel is owned by Kelly Midwest Ventures Limited Partnership. Kelly Inns Ltd. operates the hotel and is an investor in the hotel. Based in Sioux Falls, S.D., Kelly Inns was formed in 1984 and manages 23 select-service hotels in eight states in the Midwest.
“We are proud to welcome the La Quinta Inn & Suites – Billings. Increased travel to the region has created a demand for high-quality, affordable hotels especially for business travelers,” remarked Rajiv Trivedi, chief development officer at La Quinta. “With more than 850 locations nationwide, La Quinta delivers an outstanding product and guest experience. This new opening demonstrates the continued growth of the La Quinta brand through its strong franchise program.”
Conveniently located, the La Quinta Inn & Suites is within minutes of Yellowstone Art Museum, Metra Park Arena, the Western Heritage Center, Pictograph Caves State Park, and the Peter Yergen Golf Course.
“We are excited about our affiliation with the La Quinta brand—and the flexibility and innovation we employed together in the development process shows through, in this wonderful new property,” said Brenda Schmidt of Kelly Inns Ltd. “The La Quinta prototype was the starting point of a labor of love, which has resulted in a product we are proud to introduce to the Billings market, and which we are delighted to bring into the La Quinta family.”
The new hotel is the first La Quinta in the Billings market.
