The hotel was conveniently located to downtown Helena, Last Chance Gulch and Carroll College. The free breakfast buffet was excellent. Wonderful gym. Great place to stay for both families and couples. Wonderful shops and restaurants all in walking distance from the hotel. Staff were very helpful and nice. The rooms were very nice with lots of extra touches. Would definitely... More

Our office uses the Great Northern every year for our conferences which have special requirements including wireless access, multiple rooms, quiet and a consistently responsible staff. With very little turnover, I've had the pleasure of working with the same people every year and we've never had a problem caused by the hotel. I'd highly recommend the Great Northern for conferences... More

Stellar location, great hotel, clean, roomy, nice, comfortable. Stopped here for one night as a stop over on a 12 hour journey. We had our 21 month old and our dog with us. We were given a great room with an outside entrance that made it very easy with our dog and bathroom breaks. Very comfortable hotel and the location... More

After being warmly greated, I was surprised when I was upgraded due to Platinum Rewards status when I checked in. The King Suite was spacious, well appointed with two wing back chairs in the seating area, a separate bar area for the fridge and microwave. Granite there and on the dresser/TV cabinet. Also, a very nice desk and 3 windows.... More

GrandmaryA - Your pictures are great! Thank you. We just changed some of the bed linen this winter (skirts, pillow covers and scarfs) so it is fun to see them posted on Trip Advisor. I am pleased we were able to upgrade our loyal members - we hope you welcome you back again soon. Marti Bara, CHA More

I have only good things to say about this hotel. One plus was the magnifying mirror in the bathroom. Another was the breakfast-quite good for a hotel breakfast! The meeting rooms were kept at the perfect temperature.

Stopped for a short overnight on business, and can't wait to get back. The facility is immaculately clean, and the desk staff was outstanding. The hotel puts out sugar cookies for guests as they check in, and the frosted decoration matches the Great Northern Railroad decor nicely. Check-in took less than five minutes. The lobby is spacious, and full of... More

As always, when traveling to Helena on business for conferences I always stay at the Great Northern in Helena MT. It is a wonderful hotel, and I couldn't say more about the staff, the atmosphere, comfortable beds, parking, etc. Very nice.

This has got to be upwards of my 20th stay at this property for business. In the last year they have made some small but impressive improvements to quality to this hotel. The breakfast served is honestly the best I've seen offered by a hotel. I truly tastes and feels like a restaurant breakfast. The other big improvement is the... More
