I've always wanted to stay at this hotel. I really appreciated the space of the room and being in a great area of Helena. I also liked the Great Northern decor throughout the hotel. The only drawback was I felt the room service feature was too expensive.

Very large and expansive rooms. You really cannot go wrong with this hotel. There are restaurants and a movie theater within walking distance and, if you have little ones, a carousel around the corner. The only negative thing I can say about the place is that if you really care about the pool or hot tub check with management prior... More

Thank you Ruth for your great review! We appreciate you mentioning all the great attractions in the Great Northern Town Center. I understand your comment on the hot tub/pool. It has been down currently due to a broken jet which has been replaced. We generally have it posted on our web site. We hope it will not be an issue... More

I stayed at this hotel because of an event nearby. The last two Best Western properties I stayed at in other towns were less than enjoyable, so I was a little uneasy about this one. It was a fantastic hotel. Everything was clean, the staff was helpful. It was a really quick trip, but nothing could have made it better.

This hotel has everything necessary for a great convention. It has multiple size meeting rooms, a breakfast, fitness center, and lounge/restaurant. There is no reason to have to go anywhere else so I can attend meetings and network with fellow professionals between meetings.

The hotel is right down town in a nice location, the breakfast was good, they even had fruit salads and waffles, which they do not have in other locations. The beds where amazing, like we slept on a cloud!! Very clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
