OK, so I tend to write superlative reviews. But the BW Great Northern Hotel at Helena deserves one.
We came down from a visit to our kids in Calgary and Edmonton, a long, hot full day's drive. Wildfires were eating into the hills to our East as we came into Helena along I-15. The air was filled with smoke. We were in no mood for a bad experience. We didn't get one.
First, it was easy to find the hotel. Second, we didn't have to fight street traffic to park in front and register. Third, they put us on the end of the 1st floor corridor, so we didn't have to shlep our things up stairs, etc. Fourth, we got a huge room with an exquisite king-size bed, a walk-in-shower, Internet that didn't require a call to Bangalore to connect, and a view towards the back parking lot to keep an eye on our car. (It matters.) Van's supermarket was only a short walk away for necessaries, and we only had to walk next door to the hotel for a superb innovative dinner at the Silver Star Restaurant.
If we get to having family reunions during the next few years, splicing together our clan from its Alberta, Colorado, and Texas haunts, this hotel and Helena are amongst our top choices.
