We love certain chain hotels however, every once in a while, we happen upon a hotel that offers something else. The Grand Union Hotel in Fort Benton is such a place. Staying there for the night was like being transported back in history. The owners have thoughtfully restored this historic hotel to make it comfortable for present day travelers, yet...

This historic hotel has been completely renovated in recent years and has an exceptional restaurant. The town of Fort Benton is of great historical interest and is well set up for tourists. The walk along the river is graced by many detailed signs depicting the history of the town. There are four exceptional museums in town, all within walking distance...

I would only suggest some tidying up in the...

Lovely historic hotel. Our room was large, comfortable, clean and had a river view. The dining room was small, but our server was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The food was quite good. The continental breakfast in the morning was adequate. They didn't have any decaf coffee in the self-serve pots so I asked for some and they brought me my...

A preface: They were busy with both a wedding party and an anniversary party, and as a result may have been a bit challenged by those activities occurring on the same night. That being said... No one was at the front desk when we arrived. When we rang, the desk clerk appeared, but was not very friendly. We were processed...

Few small remote towns can support a grand hotel so it was delightful to stay here. Room was comfortable and clean. Restaurant was excellent serving sophisticated fare with a lovely patio table by the river. Service was super friendly.

We had a room with a river view. Very nice rooms with all the grandeur of a historic hotel such as it is! Had dinner on the riverfront patio which was very nice and good food. It is very hard to get quality staff in a location such as this!

Driving across Montana, looking for interesting little towns. At 1500, Fort Benton was a bit bigger than we were looking for but stopped anyway. Stopped to take pictures of an interesting old hotel. Went inside to ask permission to take pictures of the inside. Did so. Went outside to sit on the benches in front of the hotel and look...
