The Crowne Plaza Hotel Billings, formerly known as 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. The building was built in 1980 and rises 245 feet (75 m) in height.[2] It is used primarily for hotel space, and is the tallest hotel building in the city.[1]

The Crowne Plaza is unique 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] The building was declared the tallest load-bearing brick structure in the world by the Brick Institute of America upon its completion in 1980.[2]
