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

We stayed one night in the Historic Grand Union Hotel. The hotel is beautifully restored with all our modern amenities. When making your reservation you have the opportunity to chose your hotel location and view. We chose a room overlooking the park and Missouri River on the third floor. Upon checking in we found the front deck staff to be... More

One night's stay in this beautiful historic hotel with some modern additions. We chose a corner suite on the third floor overlooking the Missouri river. Our room was spacious enough and had some modern ammenities such as a kurieg coffee maker and flat screen TV mixed in with old world charm furnishings. Front desk staff were wonderful....letting us see several... More

So much fun to stay at a hotel that was part of the American West! We actually stayed at this hotel twice this year on tours with DayTripping out of Santa Rosa, CA, so I don't know the cost of the rooms, but was a lovely place to stay if you enjoy historic places. Very clean, very comfortable bed and... More

Fourth time at this Hotel. Excellent as always. Lovely historic hotel on the main street in Fort Benton, right on the Missouri. It was the swankiest and costliest hotel that far west (200,000 USD to build) when it opened in the 1800s). Still lovely, A very well maintained hotel with a very good restaurant attached to the hotel - chef... More

We stayed at The Grand Union hotel at the beginning of July. We got there around 1:30 and were told we couldn't check into our room till 4:00 as the hotel was full. It was very hot outside and we were in leathers from our bike trip. The lady at the front desk let us put our luggage and our... More

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
