I have actually stayed at the Northern several times over a few years. The Northern is an historic building with a great story. It has been "through the ringer", but was recently completely remodeled and reopened after several years of being closed. The remodeling results are quite sensational, and the tone of the design is consistent with a different Billings than you might be used to.
The lobby is nearly spectacular. Completely modern, well lit and very functional. A huge, gas fireplace with in front seating is wonderful.
There is a restaurant and bar right off the lobby (so you don't have to go outside when it is -27 degrees). It is a high quality place, well appointed, but a tiny bit pricey.
Besides the hotel restaurant, there are two topflight restaurants in the same block, both highly recommended.
The hotel location couldn't be better.
The rooms are nicely redone but a bit small. Not terribly comfortable to sit in.
There is no in-room coffee (in the lobby, but not in room). Definitely selling room service.
The parking is impossible unless you use valet. Getting your car takes 10 or more minutes (when the garage is done, that should change).
If you want a bit of luxury and a new opinion of what downtown Billings, MT is all about, the Northern is worth a try.
