Excellent hotel and facilities, pet friendly, excellent steak house and lounge! The weather was below zero and we never had to leave the hotel for our business meeting. We ate in the restaurant and met in the lounge. The breakfast the next morning was very good. We sat by the fireplace to have several meetings and it was wonderful.

Louise D thank you for your comments. We enjoyed seeing your group in the lobby last week and you all looked cozy! Our lobby offers great opportunities for groups to meet, or for just one person to curl up and read a book! Safe travels during this winter season and we hope to see you again! Marti Bara, GM

I really enjoy staying here when in Helena for business. The service is great, the attached restuarant is quite nice and I like the train decor. It is easy to step out the door for a nice run in the morning and if the weather doesn't cooperate, the fitness room is quite useable.

My family and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Great Northern Best Western Hotel in Helena, MT over Thanksgiving weekend. Despite the holidays the staff was extremely attentive and helpful, and the room was in pristine condition. The food and service provided were both excellent, and my wife (a very hard client to please in the best of circumstances) was extremely impressed.

The location of the hotel is also fantastic for families with both carousel, children's museum, and theater all within easy walking distances. Their are also several restaurants in the area ranging from Subway to upscale restaurants with a wide selection of food choices.

This hotel is highly recommended for both business and for personal travel.

Another great stay at this hotel. The bed was comfy, service was excellent, the room was clean and nicely decorated, the pool was a nice temperature and the hot tub relaxing. I highly recommend the restaurant and bar for both the quality of the food and the superb service. Other restaurants are within walking distance as is the newly updated movie theatre. I also used the walking trail that runs next to the college and felt safe walking there every night. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or family travelers.

Thank you Kathy! Centennial Park has made some great additions that our guests are just a block away from. The walking trail is just one of those items! The Great Northern Town Center offers a wide variety of entertainment for our guests. From dining to the movies! We look forward to your return visit! Marti Bara, GM

This is one of excellently managed and very clean hotels. There is a restaurant on site, the menu selections are limited, but the food and service is great. Rooms have nice big desks that are ideal for business travelers. The gym facility is a very small one, but practical. I highly recommend this hotel. By the way, the hotel has excellent meeting and conference facilities.

On a recent trip through Montana, we stayed at the Helena Great Northern Hotel. The rooms were very clean and smartly decorated. The staff were extremely helpful during our stay; providing dining advice and assisting with specific shopping questions.

I stayed one night at the Best Western in Helena while on a business trip. The hotel is very pretty and located in a small pedestrian plaza area with an Old Main Street feel. Restaurant and bar at at the hotel, and it's a short walk to The Brewhouse, a terrific family style pub. I used the fitness center, which felt a little small, but was fine for what I was going for. The next morning, breakfast was great - eggs, sausages and fresh fruit were available. I would stay at this hotel again.
