Best Western Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel
Ranked #1 of 21 Hotels in Helena
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Enjoyed the stay. Stay was for business. Conference Room was perfect. Staff was very helpful and accommodating. Rooms were quiet & beds were very comfortable. I didn't get a chance to try out the restaurant, but I hear it was excellent. Parking across the street/walking mall was a little odd - downtown Helena -but I felt safe walking the area.

The location is right where the action is or within walking distance! The rooms were lovely and quite and the staff cheerful. This was my first visit to Helena and I will definitely return to The Great Northern Best Western!

We always stay at Best Westerns when we travel to new places since we know what we will get. Recently was in Helena for a wedding. This hotel did not disappoint, it was clean, comfortable, good front desk service, good housekeeping service. The location was good, walking distance to a few bars and restaurants.

This hotel is a fabulous place- friendly staff, comfy beds, wonderful breakfast. A 10 all-around! I love staying there when I have business in Helena. The pool is warm and fitness facility great. The Silverstar Restaurant/ Lounge attached, while pricey, is excellent. You can walk almost anywhere in the Gulch from here.

It was past midnight when my 87-year old mother and myself arrived at this hotel. Of course, the check in was quick. I had reserved the two room suite in room L 35, which is located within the lower level of this property. It was an expensive suite, but you are actually paying for two rooms. These two rooms are separated by a door that locks. Both rooms were clean and quiet. My mom's room had two queen beds, and my room had a king bed. The two beds slept in were comfortable. In the morning, I used the exercise facility, which is open 24 hours. The gym has two treadmills, a stationary bicycle, a stair-stepper rowing machine, and a weight lifting machine. All the equipment worked great. At the free breakfast, which was served until 10:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, I had scrambled eggs, meat, potatoes, bread, a waffle, yogurt, fruit, and some juice. A full breakfast indeed. I read the complimentary Helena newspaper called the Independent Record as I ate breakfast. The front desk lady, Corrie, quickly checked me out upon my departure. She even Mapquested a location for me that I needed to locate. The Best Western Premier Helena Great Northern Hotel is pricier than your average Best Western. But as the saying goes, you get what you pay for! At all my hundreds of stays at various Best Westerns throughout the United States, this is one of the nicest Best Westerns I have ever been to. I will stay here again when in the Helena area.

H had a very brief stay but it was a nice place with a nice clean room, great location, helpful staff. It was an enjoyable stay. I would like to see a set of stairs right next to the elevator. It seems a waste to take the elevator just one floor up.

This was a very nice hotel in downtown historic Helena, Montana. The room was lovely, walking distance to the carousel and several other shops and eateries around. We travel with a small dog so it's nice to have a high quality room.
