The Firebrand Hotel brings urban sophistication and service combined with the atmosphere and adventurous style of Northwest Montana's rugged landscapes.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for a week compliments of the Whitefish Veterans Support Team. Everyone was so friendly, from the front desk, to Christine, the bartender, and, Abby, who makes the best coffee drinks, to server John, who waited on us with a great attitude!! Food was amazing!! Hopefully the chef is back and ok. Rooms were clean and beds so comfortable. Looking forward to returning soon. Thank you WVST and to the Firebrand Hotel. Mervin and Kathy

Stayed in Whitefish for 2 nights on a road trip to Glacier Nat'l Park. We were really happy we chose to stay here and would absolutely stay here again! I debated splurging and staying at the Lodge at Whitefish Lake but now I'm glad we didn't. The location of the Firebrand can't be beat. Loved the decor and ambiance also.
LOCATION:
The Firebrand is in the heart of downtown Whitefish within walking distance to all the cutest shops and great restaurants. There are parks nearby and a great trail along the river that leads to City Beach - just a 7 minute bike ride from the hotel. Only a few mins to the golf course too.
ROOMS: We stayed in a Deluxe Double, room 231. The rooms are decent size with a lot of closet/drawer space and large bathrooms. I wouldn't pay extra for the balcony rooms tho, they're tiny with just room to step out onto and you're really not gaining any views. No refrigerator in rooms is a bummer.
HOTEL: This hotel is in very nice, new condition. There are ice makers/water dispenser machines on every floor, nice to be able to refill water bottles. Loved the rooftop patio with fire pits and the rooftop hot tub is huge. The lobby restaurant and bar was buzzing with people, kinda swanky vibe. No service on the roof but we were able to order drinks at the bar to take up to the roof with us. No room cleaning service either due to covid but our room had plenty of towels and toiletries. Hand sanitizers set up at the elevators.
Loved our stay at The Firebrand! Absolutely exceeded my expectations!

I teetered between Firebrand and the new Hampton but went to this hotel because of its proximity to downtown dining and shops. Our two rooms were nice, clean and well appointed. The hotel itself was close to the main area of downtown shopping. A few things though. First, the only bottled water available in the building was the room temperature bottles that sat on the desk next to all the ‘for purchase’ items. There was no water at front desk. There are no vending machines so there also was no canned soda anywhere in building and we had to drive to get both. We were traveling and needed to wash our clothes yet there was no laundry in the hotel nor anything close (I drove 12 miles out of my way to find a nice laundromat). But most importantly and most worrisome was when my husband and our friend went to use the gym at 8:00 this morning there were no cleaning wipes, no disinfectant and no hand sanitizer anywhere. He said it looked like there had been but it was empty. I would have thought in these scary times of Covid that the hotel staff would be extraordinarily diligent in keeping these items available. Because if this most of all, though I rarely give a 4 star review, I can’t say this was a 5 star stay.

That pretty much says everything. The hotel is very noisy, not clean and most of the staff very disinterested. They have made no provisions to service guests during covid - out of soap, etc. They are not cleaning the rooms during the stay, of course, but there isn't a provision to empty garbage, get fresh towels and supplies, get rid of dirty towels, etc. The room had one small bottle of each of shampoo, etc. for 4 days. You had to hunt down a housekeeper for any more supplies, towels, etc. The wet towels and garbage stayed in the room for 4 days; kind of like hotel camping. The room wasn't very clean, especially the carpets. We could note the location of our room by two huge dirt spots on the carpet in front of the door. The location is good, that's about it.

Thank you very much for sharing your recent experience. Please accept my apology as it appears that we didn't adequately explain our current room service policies. We will absolutely provide daily housekeeping service upon request. Our front desk is manned 24 hours a day to arrange amenity delivery, trash removal and replacement of towels for any guest not wanting full housekeeping service. Thank you for bringing the condition of the carpet to our attention. A work order was created and the spots removed. We appreciate all guest comments and use them as learning opportunities.

We stayed at the Firebrand last month on a two week road trip. The hotel was great, the interior is styled really nicely - lots of high end finishes and pretty decor. The staff were all really friendly and helpful during our stay. The room was very clean and well appointed - we booked one of the skyline rooms with a fireplace and extra sitting area which was great to relax and enjoy at the end of our day. It was the polar vortex week so extremely cold but we were still able to go up to the rooftop and enjoy the hot tub up there which was awesome. The restaurant on site is also really good, great food, great service and really tasty drinks. We had dinner there one night and breakfast both days we were there. Their location is great right in town, we were able to easily walk around and enjoy the shops and restaurants nearby. Whether you're visiting in summer to head out to hike and see Glacier or visiting in winter to ski this is a great spot to stay - highly recommend!

We were very disappointed in our last experience at the Firebrand. We have stayed at this hotel a number of times in the past but with the extraordinary increase in hotel rate, we most definitely did not see the value.
The hotel no longer provides daily cleaning – fair enough. They advised us of their change in protocol at the desk when we checked in. They said if we wanted our room cleaned to let the front desk staff know. About ½ way through our stay of 7 nights, we asked to have the room cleaned. The front desk accommodated our request and said they would advise housekeeping. Housekeeping did not keep up their end of the bargain. They did not clean the room nor did they refresh toiletries. All we received were fresh towels and the bed was made.
We had advised the front desk that the room was missing a pair of flip-flops for use at the hot tub – they indicated that they would provide us with a second set but they never arrived.
There is a bin that holds fresh towels by the hot tub but to our great disappointment, it was empty. It made a rather cold walk back to our room.
After our first night, I stopped in at the coffee bar in the morning for a coffee and a quick bite before we headed up to the mountain to ski. The cooler was mostly empty with the only choice being a muffin or a ham and cheese croissant. If they knew the hotel was full, they seriously under ordered for their guests. After the first night, the cooler was replenished with many more options but it was disappointing to see such a limited selection on our first day.
I forgot my ear buds at the hotel and asked them to send them to me. After spending over $1800 at the hotel, they charged me an additional $43 to mail my ear buds back to me. With the exception of the last 2 years when the border was closed, we had been coming to this hotel every year since it opened (sometimes twice a year). To charge me to send back my ear buds was outrageous.
The Firebrand used to charge around $120 per night. Our most recent stay averaged $230 per night. I cannot justify the cost as the service/quality has deteriorated.

We enjoyed our one week stay in a double queen room at the Firebrand. The rooms were not overly large, but big enough for the amount of time we stayed in the room. The bathrooms are very nice and generously sized. The beds are extremely comfortable, which is rare in a hotel room bed. We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel dining area on probably 5 of the days of our stay. The french toast, bacon, and scrambled eggs were delicious. We found the front desk workers to be very helpful whenever we needed anything or had a question. The hotel has suspended daily room service, but they are willing to do room service when requested. We requested a full service twice during our stay, and towel changes more than that. If you have 4 people in the room, there really are not enough places to hang towels to dry. The hotel is very centrally located to be able to walk to dinner at a variety of restaurants, the Sweet Peaks ice cream shop, souvenir shops, etc. The drive to the west entrance of Glacier National Park is only about 30 minutes. Once you get into the park, the scenery along the drive is so gorgeous, it seems to take no time at all to get to any of the popular trails. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the Whitefish area or going to the west end of Glacier National Park.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Booked a few months ago, so price was reasonable. The location is as perfect as can be. Whitefish is small, so no matter where you are downtown, you’re just a few blocks from the hotel. The food was very good, not amazing, but certainly tasty. The cocktails and the beautiful roof deck were also nice. True that housekeeping has to be specially arranged, but that’s the way it is these days. We frequently ran into housekeeping staff in the hallway and they always asked if we needed towels, soap, etc. The hotel’s staff is super nice — special praise to Chloe who handled the entire dining room at breakfast all by herself on 2 mornings!

The Firebrand is a very comfortable, convenient place to spend a few days in a wonderful small town.

Housekeeping is not in the habit of changing sheets out when cleaning rooms. On two separate occasions, I checked into my room to find black hairs and stains in my bed. The hallways and elevators need vacuuming and sheets need to be picked up on a regular basis when placed outside a room. The overall impression is that the hotel is dirty.

The staff are generally helpful and the location is great but there’s something a little off about the design of the place. As has been mentioned, the 3rd floor rooms can hear the hot tub noise and the mini fridges are really micro fridges. The rooms are definitely a bit boxy. We were very happy to stay there off season and pay $125/night but I would imagine that anyone paying 3 times that would be quite disappointed.

Cancellation policy please?
Answer from HannahW406MT
Somers, Montana28 contributions7 helpful votes
Greetings, I apologize for our delay in seeing your question! For most of our rates, we offer a standard policy of 72 hours prior to arrival to modify or cancel without penalty. Modifications within that timeframe would result in forfeiture of one night's rate including taxes. For arrivals during peak season (June - September) we have a 14-day policy; modifications made within that timeframe would forfeit the full amount of original reservation. Should you have extenuating concerns regarding your reservation status and you are already within policy, please contact the Firebrand Hotel at your earliest convenience, at 406.863.1900.

How is weather and fall colors in October
Answer from Angela F
October is a lovely time to visit Montana. Dressing in layers is recommended as the mornings are cool and crisp and the afternoon warms up. End of September through early October is typically the best time to see the fall colors.
