Bozeman, MT | Hotel rendering EVEN

We are delighted to partner with IHG on this incredibly located development, being the first hotel positioned at one of the fastest growing airports in the country.

ERES Capital, LLC, the full-service investment and development division of ERES companies, announced the inauguration of a new SAME Hotels property in Belgrade, Montana. Located adjacent to Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport (BZN) in Yellowstone Airport Plaza, a new mixed-use and planned development, the IHG Hotels and Resorts The branded hotel (IHG) will meet the ever increasing demand from the airport and the Gallatin Valley at large.

Leading the development project, ERES Capital called on O’Reilly Hospitality Management, LLC to partner and manage the EVEN hotel. With an estimated completion date of late 2022, the hotel will consist of approximately 70,000 square feet over four floors and 120 guest rooms. Thoughtful on-site amenities include an indoor swimming pool, Cork & Kale restaurant, bar and market, lounges, meeting rooms, top-notch athletics studio, flexible activity space and outdoor courtyard with fireplaces. EVEN Hotels targets the needs of well-being travelers, responding to the growing demand of active people who want to maintain their daily routine at a lower cost while traveling.

The hotel will serve not only heavy BZN traffic, but also Belgrade, the town of Bozeman, the Bridger Bowl ski area, the rapidly expanding areas of Big Sky Resort and Yellowstone National Park. Like the airport, Yellowstone National Park has also grown exponentially, and in June of this year the park hit a new monthly record of nearly one million visitors, a 64% increase from June 2020.

“We are delighted to partner with IHG on this incredibly located development, being the first hotel positioned at one of the fastest growing airports in the country,” said Mike Elliott, CEO of ERES Capital. “Typically you will see more than 10 hotels around an airport of this size and, although the offer has increased in downtown Bozeman, hardly any hotels have been built in the Belgrade area or from the airport for at least a decade, making it an incredible investment. opportunity.”

Tim O’Reilly, CEO of O’Reilly Hospitality Management, adds: “We are delighted to partner with ERES Capital in the development and management of what will be one of Bozeman’s finest hotels. We believe this growing market will provide a dynamic platform for the success of this unique and upscale hotel brand. “

Julienne Smith, Senior Vice President, IHG Development, said, “We are delighted to partner with ERES Capital on their first EVEN Hotel property and the first in Montana. With convenient proximity to downtown Bozeman and Yellowstone National Park, wellness-conscious travelers will now have a hotel option that meets their individual lifestyle and desire for upscale accommodation. .

Montana’s busiest airport, BZN, has enjoyed a record decade with several development projects, including a terminal expansion and a parking lot that is the largest in the state. The airport has grown from around 680,000 passengers in 2009 to over 1.57 million passengers in 2019. BZN is currently on track to surpass that level, with airport authorities estimating that by July 2021 the number of passengers will increase. from 135% to 140%. compared to July 2019.

In 2015, to better serve this influx of airport traffic, the County of Gallatin, the city of Belgrade and BZN worked together on the I-90 interchange project which created a new exit and constructed two underground passages, roundabouts. points and sidewalks. The increased traffic has also spurred the development of Yellowstone Airport Plaza, the new shopping center planned for visitors to Belgrade, Bozeman and BZN. Spanning 53 acres, the mixed-use complex is one of the region’s largest developments and will include the new EVEN hotel.
