My friend and I stayed two nights for a girls' weekend in Billings. The room was lovely - well-appointed and peaceful, beds were comfy, service was above par, coffee was perfect! It took us a couple (okay, 4) tries to figure out the route from the parking garage through the elevator and across to the hotel but we mastered it.... More

Stayed one night here in a two bedroom suite. The suite was more like two hotel rooms and not what I would truly consider a suite; no separate living room area. The bed was pretty comfortable and the room was clean.Decent choice for Billings.

I stayed here 15-19 April 2015. This classic hotel has undergone a top to bottom reno in the recent past and its not just cosmetics. What a cool retro - modern - somewhat art deco vibe. The beds are top notch and my wife and I enjoyed some of the best nights sleep in any hotel in the past several... More

First time at the Northern. I usually stay at the Embassy Suites across the street but attended a conference at the Northern and am sold. This will be my future stay hotel in Billings. Rooms are smaller but much nicer furnishings and ambiance of the hotel is great. Nearby restaurants are excellent and staff was very friendly and helpful.

Perfect downtown location with character and class. A couple of good restaurants within walking distance (I'd go with Walkers). Good workout room. No suggestions for improvement. Nothing else to say...

Good location if you have business or events to attend in downtown Billings. Nicely remodeled property that has been around over 100 years. Interesting room decor. Rooms are a bit small but comfortable beds and linens made for a nice stay. Shower only, which was nice but some may want/prefer a bath. Very nice bath robes. Nice toiletries. Iron and... More

We stayed overnight as we had an early morning flight out of Billings. We are local and wanted to stay at the new/old Northern Hotel. I stayed here often as a child and I wasn't disappointed in the rooms. They are lovely. They're small, but for two people, it was perfect. They are well appointed. (The only thing wrong was... More

I would definitely stay at this hotel if you are traveling to Billings MT. Great location within walking distance to everything-newly remodeled. Alonzo and Tamra at the front desk just couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. There is a shuttle to and from the airport-an SUV. The rooms are clean and well decorated as well as quiet. I was...

When my mother asked me where I stayed in Billings on my last trip up, I told her the Northern. She told me when she was a little girl (she is now 80 years old), the Northern burned to the ground, and her mother, my grandmother, took her and her little brother, Jimmy, by the hand, in their pajamas in...

The Northen was quite the surprise in a very good way. The lobby was beautifully decorated and incredibly inviting. I loved the mural above my bed - which was very comfortable. I would stay here again despite the hallway noise and the staff being not so friendly.
