The Doubletree by Hilton, formerly known as The Crowne Plaza and before that, the Sheraton Billings Hotel, is a high-rise located in the Downtown Business District of Billings, Montana. It is the second-tallest building in the northern Rocky Mountain region and was the tallest from 1980 - 1985 until the completion of the First Interstate Center, also in Billings. Construction started on the building in 1979 and was completed in 1980; it rises 245 feet (75 m) in height.[2] It is used primarily for hotel space, and is the tallest hotel building in Montana.[1]

The Doubletree is unusual among high-rises in that it is built almost entirely of bricks in an applied masonry facade; the structure contains 2,372,982 red clay bricks that were formed in an 1869 kiln.[1][2] Upon its completion in 1980, the building was declared the tallest load-bearing brick structure in the world by the Brick Institute of America.[2] The building has twenty two above ground floors with a fine dining restaurant on the twentieth floor. It is connected to a seven level city parking garage and the historic grand building via sky bridges.[3] In 2016, the name changed from ?Crowne Plaza? to ?Doubletree by Hilton.? [4]
