This hotel has it all and it is located adjacent to the Walking Mall on Last Chance Gulch. It's a convenient hotel with a nice pool you can swim laps in. The restaurant is good and doesn't hold to the Jimmy Buffet song. The hotel is quiet with beautiful rooms. I enjoyed staying here and I recommend it.

We stayed here for four nights and everything about it was excellent. No frills, just an excellent HIE experience. A very friendly welcome, nice big comfortable room, good cleanliness, a fine breakfast. Thoroughly recommended.

Most of the hotels and motels in Helena are a few miles from the city center in a sorry part of the Helena area. The Holiday Inn is one of the few that is in the beautiful city center of Helena and has quality rooms. Our room was spacious, clean and with a view. Personnel was very friendly and responsive....

I stayed here for a teacher conference for a few days. Took the shuttle from the airport. Check-in was easy. My room was comfortable and roomy. Shower was nice and hot. No free breakfast here, which is a minus. The hotel is close to lots of quaint shops and restaurants and lots of history. Didn't get to try the pool.... More

We chose this hotel for its proximity to Lucca's Italian Restaurant where we planned to eat for our anniversary. The hotel is literally a 2 minute walk from what some consider to be the best restaurant in Montana. To our surprise, we loved the hotel. The room was so comfortable and appeared to be newly and quite tastefully remodeled. The... More

Location is great. Lots of stuff to walk to, but seriously bad overall impression. I'm still struggling with internet service (thank goodness I have my hotspot with me) and it took over 5 minutes for the front desk to answer my call from my room to ask for a fork. I haven't stayed at an IHG property in a while... More

The outside is typical boring downtown hotel but the inside was nicely done. Great breakfast, lovely wine bar (totally unexpected) and sportsbar/restaurant. The service was slow but friendly. Food was delicious but mostly high quality bar food (other than breakfast). They were doing renovations on the 5th floor and parking lot - annoying for us but I'm sure will make... More

I stayed here two weeks ago, while attending a friend's retirement. At any time, someone was available and ready to render assistance and information, at the front desk. There is a restaurant and bar on site, which looked appealing, although my schedule was filled during my stay. A wide pedestrian area allows access to numerous shops, bars, and eateries, located...

This is the best hotel in Helena because of the location downtown in Last Chance Gulch. Nearby shopping, dining, brewery, nightlife is all steps away. The design of the hotel is odd to say the least, I still don't know how to get to the pool. I walked through a labyrinth each time I left the elevator while I feel... More

This property went through some strange changes over the years with management, but was drastically overhauled to expand a restaurant, bar inside. For business or casual travel, you cannot beat this location. I've stayed here many times and always stay at this property when I visit Helena. Lots of bars, restaurants and shopping within easy strolling distance.
