Kalispell Council Approves Five-Story Downtown Charles Hotel

In an 8-1 vote Tuesday, the Kalispell City Council approved on first reading a five-story $34 million downtown hotel development and a 250-space parking garage, as well as a land transfer of the prominent city-owned parking lot located on Third Avenue and Main Street.

The parking garage, which would utilize tax increment financing (TIF), is projected to cost around $7 million and would be located at the city’s Eagles lot at the southeast corner of First Street West and First Avenue West.
