This Radisson is very similar to others in this corp., clean and comfortable. We arrived later in the day and the restaurant was closing, but the kitchen kindly made us some fish and chips. We also had breakfast there and it was wonderful! The front desk helped us with making some changes to our reservation for upcoming stays.

Enjoyed a nice trip to Helena. Stayed at the Radisson which was close to what we were doing. Spent the first night and were comfortable. The staff is very friendly. Called before leaving our room to make sure they cleaned it and would leave us fresh towels. Returned 10 hours later to find....no clean room, no fresh towels....totally ignored. Upon... More

Hotel room was a good size with extra room for comfort, clean and based on reviews and pictures, was what I expected. Frugal? Not really, I needed to stay here because of a group meeting - so find a way to get additional discount, AAA, Insurance Company Name, etc., I did and the savings was worth it. The issue I... More

When we first pulled up I thought we had made a huge mistake as there were 3 cars in the lot. We decided to stick it out and were pleasantly surprised. It is an older building that is a little dated in it's bones but the rooms were updated with the nice beds, furniture and tv. The customer service was... More

Thank you for the kind review. Yes our parking is very large and extends around the building, many of our guest park near entrances closer to their rooms, so sometimes there is less cars at the main entrance to the hotel. Usually the parking lot is full as we have 17,000 square feet of meeting space and do many conventions... More

I made reservations over the phone for a Jacuzzi suite. I trusted the Radisson name at that time and thought nothing of the very high price for the room. When I arrived at the hotel and went to my room I was shocked. The room was not a suite at all. I checked with the front desk to be sure... More

Terry E, Director of Sales at Radisson Colonial Hotel Helena, responded to this review

Dear Golda I do understand your feelings; the hotel business over the last few years has changed their thinking on amenities in hotels. I guess sometimes we are all a little confused by the constantly changing terms to reflect the room types in our hotels and I do understand it's even more difficult for our traveling guests. Terms and the... More
