The Belmont Hotel is an eleven story residential hi-rise building located in Madison, Wisconsin. The building was built in 1924 in a beaux-arts style by Balch and Lippert. It was a hotel until 1968, and featured an old English dining room.[2] The height of the building instigated Madison's current height restriction, to protect views of the Capitol Building, which remain in effect to this day. The building was put on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[3]

It has been owned by the YWCA since 1968.
