Very old historic hotel, very clean, in great condition built in 1935 ??. drinks at the bar are very reasonable, with a friendly bar tender. The Uptown Café only a block away has the best food we had on the entire trip, I would go back to Butte just to eat at this restaurant. The only negative is no restaurant... More

Best location in Butte. The area may look a bit sketchy to tourists but really most of Butte appears sketchy to the untrained eye. The neighborhood is fine with many choices for dining and drinking. We have stayed several times only in the old hotel. The rooms have always been satisfactory, a very good value, and I have slept very... More

The Finlen Hotel is actually made up of two different buildings--the main building is older, with a historic lobby with tons of potential but lots of ugly furniture. This is where the check-in is located. This first few floors of this building have hotel rooms--the rest of the building is occupied by residents. The other building a a two-story, 1960s... More

Would loved to have stayed here back in the 40s or 50s when the hotel was in its full glory, still, it makes for an enjoyable stay in the 21st century. My room was quite large and comfortable...no issues with the bed unlike others. It gets very cold in Butte in the winter, and my room was a bit chilly... More

I stayed at the Finlen last night as I like to stay at historic locations downtown. Overall the hotel is not bad, but my biggest complaint is the bed. It is very cheap and gives little support. After reading other reviews, I am not the only one to notice. Also, there were 3 separate groups of loud people throughout the... More

We stayed at the Finlen Hotel a couple of years ago and I couldn't wait to go back. We booked ahead for two nights. It's truly an awe inspiring experience to walk in and see the grandeur of a bygone age. That of course didn't change with this trip. However, our bed that evening was the most uncomfortable we've ever... More

While all the restorations aren't complete yet, my sister and I enjoyed spending five nights there in two bedrooms with one full bath, a refrigerator, microwave and bar sink and a vanity sink in the second bedroom.

My fiance and I stayed here overnight and I can't tell you how underwhelming this place is. Maybe they had nicer rooms somewhere else but the one we got was a repainted motor inn. The best thing you can say about it is that it seemed clean. The beds were uncomfortable, the outlets didn't work and the lights wouldn't turn... More

It was beautifully restored with class! As we entered, I read up on the history- JFK and Charles Lindbergh stayed here! The lobby was rich and ornate, but I still feared a tiny moldy room with outdated furnishings and fixtures. Much to my surprise, we found it very clean, with all new plumbing and lighting fixtures, beautiful black furnishings and... More
