I cannot say enough wonderful things about the staff. They were so helpful with anything we needed. The cleaning staff blew me away. We lost a wedding item in one of... More

Our daughter and new son-in-law chose the Great Northern for their wedding reception. We were exceedingly impressed with the quality of the accommodations, breakfast, ballroom and banquet. The staff was friendly, responsive and accommodating. Many of our extended family and friends also remarked on the high standards they experienced at the Great Northern. We will be back!

Dear CorvetteTraveler - we are tucked in the downtown area away from those large pylon signs that are traditional to hotels. You certainly were able to take advantage of the Town Center. Great options for dining, of course, ice cream and then Centennial Park that is adjacent to the Town Center. Centennial Park has really continued to grow, offering a... More

I wish there were higher than excellent marks I could give this hotel for sleep quality. The rooms, even by the elevators are silent at night. In addition, it is easy walking distance to Carroll College and downtown. Parking is easy. It is immaculate. And every single person that works there is eager to please. The young man behind the...

My stay at the Helena Great Northern Hotel was very enjoyable. Right outside my room was an outdoor theater in the round that staged a delightful production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. The Silver Star Steak house connected to the hotel provided the best steak dinner I've ever had and the nicest waitress as well. Highly recommended!

This hotel is tucked away in a unique downtown arts district in Helena. A bit difficult to find but worth the effort. Parking/unloading was a bit problematic due to the limited space around the entry way. Shakespeare in the park was playing, the carousel was running and the ice cream shop was open on a Sunday evening so it was... More
