The Radisson hotel in Helena is a beautiful boutique property. This hotel is in a good location with restaurants and petrol stations close by. From its inviting fireplace to its grand staircase in the foyer it is exceptional from the moment you walk in the door. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable and decorated with minimal but modern decor.... More

The room was super clean and updated. Awesome bed, mattress was super soft yet firm. So comfortable. My husband is usually a 70-75 (firm) on our sleep number bed and I'm a 30-35 (softer) and we both LOVED the bed. And the pillows were perfect. Loved the gas "fireplace" ice mantel - so pretty and could change the color setting.... More

After reading several reviews we decided to check out the Radisson Colonial. The main entry is beautifully renovated and very clean and bright. The lady at the desk was very friendly when we checked in and asked us if we had a preference for the first or second floor, we chose the second. The room was adequate and nicely renovated... More

Thank you for your review. I am not sure if you were here over Thanksgiving as we gave most of our housekeeping staff the day off to be with their families, housekeeping service was on request only basis that day, Hopefully you were made aware of this at check in, if not I sincerely apologize, and I would like to...

Disappointed by my room location because it was difficult to get there due to construction. It is also worth booking through one of the travel services as if you book directly you get to pay $15-$20 extra per night, even with a "special" group rate.

Hi Bobbie, thank you for your comments. Yes we are in the last stages of our renovation program, we have finish 120 rooms and the last 30 will be complete by mid-January; which of course we are very excited about. Unfortunately for safety reason we have to keep the hallway closed during the renovations, so it does make the distance... More

The bathrooms were in a state of disrepair. The tub/shower yellowed with streaks of white and brown gunk, tile was falling apart, poorly done and cut around the toilet. The cleaning service was fairly terrible. There was a lot of hair from the previous occupant in the tub/shower on the first day and was still there after housekeeping "cleaned" the... More

My room was clean, comfortable, and spacious, even with a king size bed. Plenty of room to stretch out and the large screen TV made viewing pleasurable. The sink/vanity area was small but plenty adequate without feeling crowded. The lighted make-up mirror was a very nice touch. Road noise was virtually nonexistent but unfortunately you can hear, and feel, every... More
