Revitalizing Missoula: Tire store turned hotel attracts residents and tourists

MISSOULA, Mont. – Missoula is growing, and with that, the downtown corridor is changing in order to support both its residents and tourists.

One of the cornerstones of revamping downtown Missoula is the modern AC hotel on the corner of Pattee and Main Street.

It can seem hard to believe, but just two years ago, an empty, run-down tire store stood on this prime corner in downtown Missoula.
