Bozeman, Montana, a city that consistently ranks as one of Outside's best towns, has added a noteworthy new lodging option in the heart of downtown. The previously un-remarkable 1960s Imperial Inn hotel, has been completely transformed by local architectural firm Thinktank Design Group into The LARK, maintaining its streamline-era architecture but with major facelifts. Now there's a new, hip lodging option in a major outdoor hub located only 16-miles from Bridger Bowl Ski Area, an hour north of Big Sky Resort and the private Yellowstone Club, and at the gateway to Yellowstone National Park.
The LARK features 38 rooms that are uniquely Bozeman, decorated with works by local artists and craftsmen. The Map Room sits near the lobby and provides an artistic offering for finding your way around locally. The new open-air design, outdoor fire pit, and wider balconies take advantage of the main street location in Bozeman's bustling downtown. Restaurants, breweries and the arts and cultural center are all within walking distance.
With a goal of getting guests outside adventuring, the Lark includes an onsite expert guide service and free bikes to experience the adventure town like a local. And finally, all guests receive a Field Guide travel journal to document the adventures of Bozeman and beyond. No excuses!
