Head to Philipsburg and check out all that this tiny southwest Montana town has to offer.

Of course you want to know where to stay, so we recommend the Broadway Hotel — our best choice for a quality stay in an historic hotel.

The Broadway, built in 1890, is painted brightly in hues of red, yellow and green, making it a traffic-stopper on Philipsburg's main street. Inside, the rooms and suites are clean and well-appointed, with big, pillow-top beds.

While the hoteliers have lent a modern touch to the Broadway Hotel, reminders of the past remain. Dark notches in the wooden floor were made when the hotel's turn of the century boarding-house residents chopped wood to keep the stoves running.  

You won't have to chop wood, don't worry. Now, the hotel is a comfortable stay in a historic Montana mining town.
