Excellent and friendly staff make this hotel a great place to stay if you visit Helena MT. The restaurant is a must for dinner, the food excellent. Rooms were spotless and the rest of the facility was as well. I will stay here again when in Helena.

We stayed at Best Western in downtown Helena and had a great time. We for in in the evening and checked into our room. Front seat had great customer service. Our room was beautiful. High ceilings, huge bathroom, clean, and comfortable. One of the nicest hotels we have stayed at. We ate at the Silver Star which had great good and amazing customer service. We were very please an would stay here without a doubt on our next trip to Helena.

This property is newer and looks very nice inside and out. The room was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. We had a corner room with a nice view of the temple on the third floor. It was a two queen room with a sleeper sofa, nightstand, desk/chair, entertainment center with flat screen tv, coffee maker, microwave, mini fridge and a upholstered arm chair. Bathroom was split with a sink and mirror with outlet in the room and then a second counter with sink, toilet and bathtub/shower in the bathroom. Very convenient for getting ready in the morning.

Loved the curved shower curtains that give extra room in the tub. Beds were comfortable and the four of us had plenty of room to move around. Also appreciated the extra outlets in the table lamps bases to charge all of our electronics.

The indoor pool and hot tub was a hit with the kids. My husband used the small but adequate fitness center. The front desk served cookies in the evenings which was a nice treat. Breakfast selection was good with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, juices, toast, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, cold cereal, yogurt, scrambled eggs, ham, waffles, biscuit and gravy.

We enjoyes our short overnight stay and would stay here again if we are in the area. The only minor downside is that the parking lot is a very short walk away from the hotel so you will have to unload your baggage in the loading area in front of the hotel and then park your car. It was not a big deal to us.

Room Tip: We had a quiet room on the 3rd floor. For those who have kids and plan to use the pool a lot they h...

Thank you for sharing your experience on Trip Advisor. That is a great room for families - a little oversized then others. It appears to were able to enjoy all the amenities our hotel has to offer. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary in June - we have proudly work had to keep it fresh and updated. Again, thank you for your wonderful comments! Marti Bara, GM

We loved our stay at the Great Northern in Helena! We booked 5 rooms for a family wedding and all of our kids and grandkids had a great visit, including one granddog! The staff could not have been more accommodating to our various needs. Truly a pleasurable experience!

Room Tip: Rooms in the front of the hotel had large curved windows...seemed extra spacious

We have been to the Great Northern twice and will return! We love the lower level rooms (3 of them) which walk out to a nice patio. Great place if you have a dog or children with you. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent and the breakfast buffet is an added bonus.

Room Tip: The lower level rooms with the patio are excellent

It's easy to see why this hotel is at the top of Trip Advisor ratings for Helena. It is very nice and upscale, yet very economical. The lobby is very nice so the moment you walk it, you know it'll be a great stay.

The rooms are large, the beds are very comfortable and the staff is excellent. I can't find a single negative thing to say.

Breakfast is typical for these hotels and parking was with a permit just a half block away. The permit was provided by the hotel.

The hotel is located in a business complex with several restaurants in the immediate vicinity. It appears to be rather busy with business travelers and conferences/seminars. The rooms are superb, the beds a delight. It's so very quiet in the room, no noises from the corridor or adjacent rooms. We were very satisfied with our choice.
Helena is not a vast town, so it's easy to get around (by car) and find pedestrian areas with cafes and more restaurants.

Room Tip: We had one on the 1st floor which was excellent

Thank you for your warm comments! I appreciate your remark about Helena not being difficult to get around - it is in a grid - but what connects the grid can be challenging to some folks. We do have many charming places to dine around the city, it is pleasing to know you experienced the true flavors of Helena Montana! Marti Bara, GM
