I have always been treated well at the Great Northern, but this time front desk and management staff went out of their way to fix a booking problem that would have left me looking for a new hotel in the middle of the work day. I appreciate very much that they just took it upon themselves to make sure I...

I recently stayed at the Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel. It was a wonderful experience from check-in to check-out. The staff was friendly and helpful and the cookies offered upon arrival were a nice treat. The room was spacious and comfortable and had all the modern amenities with some rustic charm as well. I always value a hotel that provides...

This is, I believe, the most expensive place in Helena, but in many respects, it's not hugely better than places that would cost 2/3 the amount in other cities. The amount of parking they have for the size of their facility is a joke ... be prepared to walk.

I stayed at the hotel unexpectedly due to road conditions so had traveled the day before the meeting. The face to face meeting was cancelled and I was able to enjoy the privacy and warm comfort of my room for a 2 hour conference call. I remain grateful for the hospitality.

To be fair there are several shops and store around the hotel but they were all closed. Nothing in walking distance was open to eat after 9:00 pm. The hotel is clean and in the summer I am guess would be really nice. For the winter they decorated very nice but the train was not working and it is the...

Dear Ben N - well the "train man" arrived last evening to do any needed repairs to the train. I am sorry it was not working - it gets a pretty heavy work out. Business districts can be quiet after hours in the winter. In nicer weather it is bustling! We traditionally leave the thermostats to 68, so I apologize...

Very clean, and comfortable place to stay, was right in the heart of Helena and very accessible to all the places we wanted to go, lots of great restaurants to choose from! We chose the Brew House and it was excellent, with excellent service... We finished up with the Carousel and the kids and grand kids really loved it
