I've stayed at the Grand Union several times since it has opened and it is wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and the service is excellent. When visiting my family in Great Falls, we will often drive to Fort Benton for dinner at the Grand - it's well worth the drive!

This 19th century hotel went through some rough times before being beautifully restored. The room was smallish but had a modern bathroom. The hotel sits beside the Missouri River and the view from our room looked downstream with the river on the right and the small downtown on the left. Very nice. Our only complaint was that the TV was... More

Unbeliably good food with excellent service. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Sit outside if the weather allows, it's a beautiful view looking right out at the Missouri river. A must see if your in Fort Benton. I will definitely be coming back to visit the Grand Union next time I come to town.

This hotel sits right on the wild and historic section of the Missouri. We loved watching the river and the geese. All the rooms are kind of small and tilty, so you might feel a little drunk, but we just loved the view and the charm of the old rooms. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms are modern and the... More

Great rooms, beds and baths. Excellent food and drink. Super location in Fort Benton. Great staff. Built in 1882 and restored beautifully. The furnishings are superb. Located on the "steamboat levee" the hotel is central to wonderful walks both up and down river.

i had an opportunity to stay in this beautiful historic hotel in January which is not ideal tourist season. There were four of us in the entire place and the gracious front desk person filled us in on the unique history including the cowboy ghost! It was great. The hotel, built in 1882 has undergone renovation. The rooms are very... More

This hotel was built in 1882 and was on the cutting edge of luxury and modernization. It is said it was the best place to stay between Chicago... More

We were travelling late September so we had our choice of several rooms......we chose a second floor room overlooking the river and bridge. It was perfect........clean and very comfortable. We were very impressed on how helpful and friendly everyone was. It is so nice... More

We had a river view room and the view was very scenic. Our room was comfortable and the ambience of the room and hotel was elegant as well as historic. It was easy to imagine the frontier days and the time when Fort Benton was the hub for commerce and trade. We were quite enchanted with our stay in this... More
