No complaints about the hotel, cleanliness, location; all great. We travel there for dinner 3 - 4 times a year, but it seems the quality of the food has dropped since the new Chef took over. Pretty bland, nothing edgy, but still the same price. Wine glasses have shrunk to the size you'll get at any Chinese restaurant and even the side of bread has gotten smaller. (We had to request it last time, didn't automatically appear.) Kinda sad, it's always been our "go to" place.

I first stayed at the Grand Union 7 years ago. I've been back every year since. As is the case with me, you should only go there if you have a genuine appreciation for fine dining. As a part time Montana resident, I can say it is the very best dining experience in the State. You should go there if you have an appreciation for History. It is located in the City dubbed "The Birthplace of Montana, and adjacent to Front Street, once known as the "bloodiest street in the west". And you should go there if you have an appreciation for the hard work, and pure passion of a Woman and her husband, who were bent on restoring and preserving a Montana Icon. It's a walk in the past, through the comfort of today, with unparalleled cuisine.

The Grand Union is a demonstrably superior hotel in a very small but very historic town in Montana. Our room was large, beautifully appointed, and unusually comfortable.
This is a handsomely refurbished hotel dating to the 1880s.
We travel extensively in Montana, usually fishing (there's not much of that in Ft Benton), and this may be the finest accomodation available in the state short of an exclusive guest ranch.
The staff was helpful and accomodating.
Overall, you cannot do better and for history buffs, the city of Ft Benton is among the most historic locations in Montana. It relates to the opening of Monana, development of trading and
opening of the state, the Nez Perce War, and frontier commerce.
The historic sites are well developed and there are three museums in the city in addition to many varied sites.
Although on the higher range of rate schedules, the value is exceptional and the town is worthy of a minimum of two days of exploration.

This hotel was built in 1882 but has been totally modernized. The rooms and beds are comfortable. Each room has its own bathroom. There is an elevator to help guests get their luggage upstairs. The decor looks like it's in keeping with the history of the hotel. The restaurant is fabulous and was the best meal we had during our trip (and was very reasonably priced). The history of Fort Benton is very interesting. There are numerous signs explaining the historical significance of the various buildings and people involved.

I have been staying at the Grand Union for both business and pleasure since it first opened in 1998. And because I'm a professional historian I've stayed at all of the other historic hotels in Montana (and many others throughout the West) since. By far the Grand Union is the grandest of Montana's historic hotels. There really is nothing else that even remotely compares in quality and elegance. I recently stayed at the Grand with a large group (as we then canoed a portion of the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument). The comments from the guests in my party of 20 were uniformly positive, even effusive. Indeed, year in and year out, similarly numbered groups (from all corners of the country) are awed by the magnificent and award-winning restoration of the hotel, the quality of the locally grown food always expertly prepared by the chef, the attention to detail, the cleanliness, and the helpfulness and energy of the always-friendly staff. This is one of Montana's true gems and I recommend it to anyone and everyone as an authentic "bucket list" experience. I can't think of anywhere else in the American West where one can sit within a few feet of the Missouri River while dining on bison or ribeye while sipping a local handcrafted beer or a glass of exquisite wine in a quiet, relaxed, yet elegant and truly historic setting. For anyone traveling along the trail of Lewis and Clark or between Glacier and Yellowstone Parks, the Grand Union hotel is an absolute must stay.

Room Tip: The hotel borders the Missouri river; try to get a riverside room. In the summer you also may be able to watch a thunderstorm roll in!
