Front desk staff looked professional, but not very helpful. Staff was great at maintaining high standards in the conference room. Water was kept cold and snacks were provided throughout the events. Several staff members asked if everything was acceptable or if they could do anything to be of service. The only low point was the lack of staff at check-in... More

Stayed here for two nights in late February (Friday/Saturday night). Very nice stay, overall. Hotel is located near Carroll College in a recently renovated shopping/attraction area in central Helena. Nice location with lots of stuff to do nearby (anywhere from right next door to 5 minutes walk), including a children's museum, carousel/ice cream parlor, movie theater, shops, and several restaurants,...

Dear MontanaMike65 - thank you for taking the time to leave a great review for our readers. We appreciate your time to share your experience. Generally, we do not have noise complaints from kids in rooms. We did see some extra families here with the 3 day holiday weekend recently. Parking in a downtown can be complex. The guest service...

I'll be going back for sure.... It is by far the best hotel in Helena with a perfect location. Only downside is finding parking. The restaurant is amazing, and the individuals working at the front desk were very helpful.

I hate staying at those hotels that are located right by the busy streets and highways. The Great Northern is right downtown in the quiet part of town but still centrally located in the heart of Helena. Close to Carroll College, the State Capitol and downtown business district. Staying at the Great Northern offers you a clean, quiet, comfortable room... More

This hotel exceeded all our expectations. The hotel has character, the decor is very attractive, the location is unique, the amenities are great, the room was extremely quiet. The only aspect that was a bit lacking was the breakfast.

The rooms, the facility, the staff were way above our expectations and other stays we've experienced. The Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame and The Montana Historical Society hosted the Induction Ceremonies for the 2015 Inductees. The served Brunch was very good and the Saturday Night Brunch was excellent. Only problem was we ran completely out of Horus-De-Voures at the Friday... More

Dear Bill V - it was great fun to have the MT Cowboy Hall of Fame this month! What a tremendous group of friendly people! Glad you enjoyed your meals. The committee ordered the food, perhaps they were not expecting as many to attend Friday evening as did. I think a great time was had by all! Marti Bara, General... More

We traveled to Helena to attend the induction ceremony for my Dad into the Montana Cowboy Hall of Fame and were treated like Royalty while we were there. The staff were accommodating to every request. The rooms were clean with all the amenities. Wish I'd had time to use the spa area but I did see a lot of kids... More

My family and I like to travel a lot whether its long distance or even a stay-cation. When we do travel we always look for the Best Western Hotel. In Helena, MT we found a BW Premier and always enjoy staying there. The Staff is always courteous and provide an excellent experience. We never need to look for another hotel... More

Stayed 3 nights, the staff and the room were extremely nice. Nice dining and shopping located next to the hotel and the carosel next to the hotel was such an added bonus, I will definetly bring my family back to stay.
