Murray Hotel - Livingston

Montana Angler Fly Fishing is excited to offer our guests Montana fishing vacation packages with the Murray Hotel. The Murray Hotel is an authentic Western hotel with modern amenities in the beautiful destination of Livingston, Montana. All the pieces are in place for a great getaway: a century-long reputation, close proximity to world-class recreation, and unsurpassed charm. Like any good hotel, the Murray has a personality of its own, a thing as tangible and real as its marble stairways, yet as hard to define as music or an aroma. Celebrities have been stopping here for 90 years, sharing space and rubbing elbows with the cowpokes, railroaders, and other travelers that provide a hotel's life blood.

Our guides will pick you up each morning for a day of fishing on legendary rivers and spring creeks including the Yellowstone River, Yellowstone ParkBoulder River, Stillwater River and the Livingston Spring Creeks.

Since its grand opening in 1904, the Murray Hotel's guest registry has been more like a who's who of history and Hollywood. Celebrities such as Buffalo Bill and Calamity Jane have graced the threshold of what was once "the" elegant railroad hotel. The Murray was also home to Walter Hill, son of railroad tycoon, James J. Hill. More recently, colorful personalities like motion-picture director, Sam Peckinpah, rented what had been the largest suite in the place, built originally for an heir to the Burlington railroad fortune.

The Queen of Denmark once spent the night, but her impressions went unrecorded. Humorist Will Rogers and his buddy Walter Hill, must have been satisfied. They liked the place well enough they tried to bring a favorite saddle horse to a third floor suite, via the hand-cranked, 1905 Otis elevator.

To this day, Livingston attracts a steady stream of writers, musicians, and movie stars. 

Dining - Second Street Bistro
One of southwestern Montana's premier restaurants, the Bistro has an extensive wine list and gourmet meals served in a sophisticated and yet warm atmosphere. Open every night, the Bistro can also provide room service. The 2nd Street Bistro combines the techniques of classic French cooking with locally sourced Montana lamb, pork, beef, chicken and produce. They pride themselves on making everything from scratch from baguettes to croissants to crème brulee. The Bistro offers a wide selection of wonderful appetizers, eclectic salads, hand tossed pizzas, great steaks, chops, seafood and amazing desserts. In the summer season, the 2nd Street Bistro utilizes its own urban farm. The private, thousand-linear-foot farm produces all the vegetables and most of the herbs the restaurant uses in the summer, from mixed greens and tomatoes to beets, broccoli, and cabbage.
