When it abruptly closed in 2019, the hotel at 5500 Midland Road was branded as a Red Lion. For the majority of the property’s life, it was the Holiday Inn Grand Montana and many locals have a difficult time calling the hotel by any other name.

The large property made Billings news in 2015 when it was acquired by Florida-based Inner Circle Management for $7.85 million, according to a company press release. The property was re-branded as a Radisson, with promises of updates to the hotel and attached convention center. Current tax records show a number of entities on the various properties at 5500 Midland Road, including Sonifi Solutions, Inc., a South Dakota-based hospitality solutions company.

It’s been well over a year since they stuck those tiny, temporary-looking signs on the top of the hotel and until recently there has been very little activity at the property. When I spotted a billboard west of Billings for the hotel, I figured it had finally reopened. Not so much. Not yet, anyway.
