Enjoyed our stay at this historic hotel. Our room was clean and nice, though we ended up with two double beds instead of one queen since that was all that was left. Our room did have a bit of a slant to it, but it is an old building! We ate at the restaurant and had a good dinner. Breakfast... More

My husband and I decided to take the plunge and spend the money to visit this old hotel. We tried to check in and the hot water was out of our room and they wouldn't even let us put up bags in our room. The room was ok but nothing to brag about. We were in a corner room so... More

Very historical gracious old lady of a hotel. Floors & window sills don't meet our definition of level or straight but not so that it is a problem. Rooms and beds were nice. Great patio on the riverbank where you can have a glass of wine or beer (no spirits) and/or eat dinner. Food was good. Reservations recommended - no... More

We drove several hours out of our way on a recent trip to Montana just to stay in this hotel. And it was definitely worth it! The hotel has been operating since 1882, and was completely restored in the 1990s. Elegant, interesting, historical, and friendly and with a delicious restaurant to boot! We had a riverside room from where we... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Grand Union. We absolutely loved it. Starting at the reception desk, Lilah, who is there Mondays and Tuesdays, delightfully checked us in. She gave us the scoop on the renovation of the hotel. What an undertaking that was. The hotel is authentically restored and just beautiful. Our room overlooked the river on... More

I always love staying at the grand union but this was better than ever. The hotel and setting are beautiful. At dinner I enjoyed the food more than usual and asked about the executive chef, I was told he was new and had been there about 3 months. Dinner was fabulous. Best was the homemade bourbon maple ice cream. If... More

Both the hotel and the restaurant are great fun. The hotel is like stepping back in time and is in an incredibly beautiful location right on the Missouri River. We treated ourselves to dinner and a night out before setting out in our canoe to journey through the Missouri Breaks. The staff is efficient and friendly as well as being... More

My husband and I have visited the Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton for many years, enjoying the restaurant, the food and the rooms. it is like stepping back into our stat's history to spend time there. What is not to like? The mid 1800's building is right on the banks of the lazy Missouri, and we like t dine... More

I've travelled extensively in my career and, I like to say, I've stayed in the best and worst hotels in the world. I would rank the Grand Union as one of my top 3 favourite hotels. It comprises everything a great hotel needs: modest size, amazing view (request a river view room), professional staff, outstanding restaurant*, quiet and comfortable rooms,... More

We drove in to Fort Benton to get gas and quickly look around. We were on a long road trip from Canada to California. We found this historic gem and stayed the night. Beautifully restored and well appointed rooms. Peaceful, quiet. The restaurant is amazing and was one of the best meals on our trip. It was such an amazing... More
