Arrived at Northern Hotel on August 25th with checkout on August 27th. Friendly front desk staff and the lobby is beautiful, clean and brightly lit. The gas fireplace in the lobby just adds to the ambiance. Our room was a classic suite with king bed. It was very clean, spacious and comfortable. The restaurant/bar is Ten. We enjoyed drinks at the bar. We were given a ticket for a complimentary breakfast for both days of our stay to Bernie's Diner. Hotel guests enter the diner from the lobby of the hotel, which is very convenient. It was a very good menu and the food is very good as well. Definitely recommend this hotel if you travel to Billings, MT

I recently stayed at this property for two nights. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and comfort of the room! Nicely appointed! I booked on Amazon and received two breakfast coupons for a great diner, Bernie's (just off the lobby), and a coupon for a free glass of wine in the restaurant. I also had dinner there, a wonderful Montana steak and iceberg wedge small salad (which was generous!) One night I was working on a work project and called room service for coffee - which arrived in 15 minutes. Nice sized pot, cream, etc. One morning I walked to the Art museum, which is also a little treasure. I had dinner at a local restaurant within 2 blocks of the hotel. The only recommendation is a coffee maker in the room. But this is *very* minor compared to the value for the money. I booked 5 months out on Amazon and my room rate was only $120 a night, huge value! Thanks for the hospitality!

We were passing through Billings and enjoyed our stay at the Northern. It is a very classy, clean hotel. Our room was great. We faced the street, but had no issues with noise. We were in walking distance to a variety of restaurants. Parking was convenient and complementary. We'd definitely stay here again.

You couldn’t be better taken care of at Northern. This is a big city feel in a small town. You can’t go wrong here. The bar and restaurant rival the best hotel restaurants I’ve stayed at. New York Chicago New Orleans DC you name it. I have stayed here 5- years in a row every summer and it is its own western experience

This is a beautiful, restored hotel located in downtown Billings so the location is excellent. Parking is available for no additional charge at the garage located next to the hotel. It would have been helpful if we had been advised of the complimentary, valet parking at street level outside the hotel prior to our arrival; we did not know about the curbside valet so parked in the attached garage and struggled to get our luggage into the lobby. The lobby is beautiful, and the front desk staff is friendly and efficient. The room was beautiful and comfortable. We ate dinner at the Ten restaurant in the lobby and the food and service was excellent! It was definitely fine dining and would be great for special occasions. We also ate breakfast at Bernie's Diner off the lobby. We had to wait and the service was slow, but the staff was friendly and the food was good. We would definitely return to the Northern Hotel.
