One night while on the road we decided to stay over and continue the next day. Even though one review stated that their rooms smelled of cigarette smoke, we still gave them the benefit of the doubt since they had the best rating of hotels in billings. Once we got our room and got inside it did smell of smoke.... More

Nice Hotel in Billings, it was nice from top to bottom. I believe it has been renovated fairly recently. Our room was very clean and the service was exceptional. We like the location because it is near a lot of nice attractions. The rates are average in my book and what you get in return is above average.

If your travels take you to Billings by all means it would be in your best interest to stay at The Northern. In terms of design, comfort, and value it is safe to say there is nothing like it in Billings. The lobby is inviting and slightly trendy (Billings who knew?). And the rooms are modern, clean, and comfortable. I... More

I loved the beautiful renovations and staying downtown. Comfortable bed & nice views! The staff at TEN restaurant was very attentive, as was the hotel staff & valet! We had dinner at TEN. The staff was great and attentive, but we really didn't feel like the food was top of the line. We both had ribeye steaks and they were... More

This hotel is the real deal. There are a lot of hotels in Billings that I would call ''faux 4-star." If you don't know what real quality and service is, you might be fooled into thinking that you were staying at a very nice hotel. The Northern stands alone (in my opinion) out of all the hotels in Billings. It... More

I hadn't stayed at the Northern Hotel in about 15 years, way before their total renovation during the last three years. The result of the renovation was they re-created the ambiance of the classic hotel that I first saw 40 years ago. Everything during the stay was superb, from the food, lounge, and banquet meals, and of course the efficient... More

We stayed for just one night. We have two kiddos & found that things were a bit cramped in our two queen room. We did bring our own pack & play so that didn't help with the roominess. Had we to do it again would have chosen a king room or king suite for the little extra. They have many... More

We tried to stay in as many historic hotels and B and Bs as possible on our 15 day road trip so we were really looking forward to staying at The Northern. We were a little disappointed that the hotel's renovation had wiped away most of the historic features, but the hotel is still beautiful and perfectly located in downtown... More
