Downtown Branson Hotels: Stay Where the Excitement Is!

Branson literally has thousands of hotels rooms, condos and rentals. But don’t miss the convenience and excitement of staying in Downtown Branson, where you can walk (and ride the free trolleys) to get to so many great attractions, stores and restaurants!

Here’s a quick look at some of the great (and unique) places you can stay:

The Hiltons

You can’t talk about Downtown lodging without mentioning the two Hilton properties at the center of downtown. The Hilton Branson Convention Cente is a high-rise hotel with four-star amenities, including restaurants and bars on-site. The hotel is connected to the Branson Convention Center, making it ideal for visitors attending an event at the center. It’s also directly adjacent to Historic Downtown, the train station, Branson Landing. And it’s even got its own Sparky trolley stop!

Across Branson Landing Boulevard from the “big” Hilton is the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. This is also an upscale hotel with a boutique atmosphere. Rooms are more like condos and are located directly over Branson Landing’s stores and restaurants, making this hotel incredibly convenient for those wanting to spend time at The Landing.

Best Western Plus Landing View Inn & Suites

Located at Fourth and Main Streets is the Best Western Landing View & Suites. As the name implies, the hotel sits uphill from Historic Downtown and The Landing and is a great option for people spending time in downtown. This hotel also has an on-site trolley stop.

The Branson Hotel

Branson’s first and most historic hotel is another great option. Built in 1903, the Branson Hotel provided the city’s main lodging for visitors for many years and was where Harold Bell Wright stayed while writing his famed “Shepherd of the Hills” novel. Completely renovated, this small boutique hotel only has 9 rooms, so it feels more like a bed and breakfast (don’t miss the attached Backstage Wine Bar for socializing)! There’s also Branson Hotel Condo Lofts in another nearby historic structure.

Sandpiper Landing Inn

Built in the era and style of Historic Route 66’s heyday is the Sandpiper Landing Inn. Although Branson wasn’t on Route 66 like Springfield, it was a popular side trip from the highway. Meticulously cared-for, this “motor inn” is a slice of Americana, and a very unique and convenient place to stay in Downtown. There’s even a trolley stop across the street!

Landmark Inn

Another great site for Ozarks history is the Landmark Inn. Originally built for the railroad’s station master in 1905, it later became a boarding house. It’s located in a quiet nook at the intersection of Commercial Street and Branson Landing Boulevard, which means it’s incredibly convenient to everything in Branson. The hotel has a total of 8 rooms.

Branson House Bed & Breakfast

The Branson House Bed & Breakfast is a great location for a romantic getaway or a personal retreat. With their continental breakfast, luxuriously rooms and private baths you’ll find yourself wanting to come back again and again.

Crescent Court Motel

Another motor inn in the classic Americana style is the Crescent Court on Veterans Boulevard, which features quiet bungalows and a reasonable price.
