Staff, food and rooms were all superior at this establishment. Room rates include a larger than unusual continental breakfast. Right on the Missouri River this hotel's vies only compliment their style. There is an elevator as well as a grand staircase to the rooms upstairs. Free parking right out front.

Location was really nice: by the river, nice view, the best one could get in this very small town. The hotel is dating from back when the fort has been founded and a lot of original design elements were preserved. This gives it a very nice touch. Reasonably comfortable and a bit noisy. Breakfast was ok, although we really disliked... More

Nicest US property I have stayed in over the past three years. 19th century gem that has been brought into the 21st century with full realization of its historical roots, top-flight style, creative touches, attention to the smallest detail, and spotless presentation. The renovation has been a real gift to this community and anchors the business and tourism industries (with... More

This is a must see and experience on your bucket list! We are going back this year. It is right on the Missouri River and there is a park and riverwalk next to the property. We have heard about an interesting agricultural museum in Fort Benton that we plan on seeing this trip.

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.
