Historical NoteReturn to Top

The Hotel Investment Company was an investment company located in Wilmington, Delaware. They were incorporated in Montana in 1911.

The Placer Hotel was built in 1912 and designed by architects Cass Gilbert and G.H. Carsley. The Placer Hotel immediately became competition for the Montana Club. At this time, women were not allowed to become members of the Montana Club, which made the Placer Hotel an appealing alternative for families. The Hotel was built with strong financial support from J.M.S. Neill. It was his intent to build the largest and best hotel of the region. The Placer Hotel was the product of this endeavor.
