This is a lovely hotel with tremendous ambiance. Step back in time yet have all the modern conveniences. Our room was small but elegant. We had a superb dinner in the restaurant with knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff. The concierge showed us through the lovely gift shop, was helpful in all ways. I would only suggest some tidying up in the... More

We recently visited Ft. Benton for our anniversary and stayed at the Grand Union on a recommendation of a friend. We arrived about 3pm to check in went in the front door which goes into a hallway and we asked where the front desk was located of someone waiting on the elevator. Actually you enter the side of the building.... More

Lovely historic hotel. Our room was large, comfortable, clean and had a river view. The dining room was small, but our server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The food was quite good. The continental breakfast in the morning was adequate. They didn't have any decaf coffee in the self-serve pots so I asked for some and they brought me my... More

A preface: They were busy with both a wedding party and an anniversary party, and as a result may have been a bit challenged by those activities occurring on the same night. That being said... No one was at the front desk when we arrived. When we rang, the desk clerk appeared, but was not very friendly. We were processed... More

Few small remote towns can support a grand hotel so it was delightful to stay here. Room was comfortable and clean. Restaurant was excellent serving sophisticated fare with a lovely patio table by the river. Service was super friendly.

We had a room with a river view. Very nice rooms with all the grandeur of a historic hotel such as it is! Had dinner on the riverfront patio which was very nice and good food. It is very hard to get quality staff in a location such as this!

Driving across Montana, looking for interesting little towns. At 1500, Fort Benton was a bit bigger than we were looking for but stopped anyway. Stopped to take pictures of an interesting old hotel. Went inside to ask permission to take pictures of the inside. Did so. Went outside to sit on the benches in front of the hotel and look... More

Excellent location ( we're on our way to Glacier) on the Missouri. A great agricultural museum, Fort Benton, river walk and ice cream within walking distance. No cell service and wifi a bit spotty but doable, good bed and great restaurant. Have the ribeye!

Built in 1882, when Fort Benton was THE place to be in Montana. Renovated since then, but still with older decor. Located on the river walk, very central. Best rooms view the Missouri River from the front or left side. Get a top (third or possibly second) floor river view room--or stay in another town. Other rooms have no good... More
