We had a great two night stay here. The building is beautiful and I loved learning about its history. The lobby is just as it was 134 years ago when the hotel first opened. However, we had a few small issues which stopped us giving it five stars: the wifi was very slow, the walls very thin (we know it's...

We were attracted to this hotel as Fort Benton was billed as extremely historic and the hotel itself had its heyday in the 30s. The building has been lovingly renovated and the rooms have a few modern touches. I'm glad we paid the extra to have what was described as a mini-suite as even this was barely large enough to...

We made a special effort to stay in this fine restored hotel. The owners have mixed old detail with modern upgrades to help us remember what small town hotels were like 75 years ago. A gorgeous facade, gracious first floor rooms and bedrooms with modern comforts. We ate in the dining room for dinner and enjoyed the fare on a.limited...

The Grand Union Hotel is one of my favorite Montana journeys. Located on the north bank of the Missouri River, the historic hotel promises a sense of bygone days, when Fort Benton was the "World's Innermost Ports." From the front hotel step, you can almost imagine a steamboat from St. Louis arriving laden with goods bound for gold mining camps....

We stayed 2 nights at the Grand Union historic hotel. The staff were helpful and friendly, the rooms were quaint and inviting. The bed was comfortable. We received wonderful service from everyone. We liked the small bar, loved the outdoor patio overlooking the Missouri River. The restaurant was beautiful and the food prepared by the chef was excellent. The included...

Grand Union Hotel offers several special events throughout the year, usually combining a special meal with an overnight stay for a package price. We have done these several times in the past and the service, food and accommodations have always been fantastic. They set themselves a high bar to meet for return visits. Sadly the last visit was not up...

Second stay at this historic masterpiece on the Missouri in Montana. One of the most authentic renovations I've ever enjoyed. Rooms are spacious & unique with all modern conveniences. 5 stars for the restaurant downstairs as well. Visit Ft. Benton's 4 history museums, fish, swim, boat, golf, etc.

We went to the Grand Union for a five course dinner and wine pairing, plus a room for the night. The presentation of each course was amazing, and the service impeccable. The rooms are very nice, though not large (it's an OLD hotel!). And the bathroom is rather luxurious, with beautiful old tile work.

Visiting Fort Benton and staying at the Grand Union Hotel had been on our bucket list for several years, and we were finally able to check that off the list last month. But, it was so wonderful that we’ll be returning again. First, there’s the elegance of the hotel’s exterior, with historically accurate embellishments and balconies. Step inside, and you...

It made the news some years ago when a couple returned to their home state of Montana, purchased the falling apart and boarded up, historical Grand Union Hotel on the banks of the Missouri River and renovated it. We've been wanting to stay there forever, but it was always full up. Finally we secured our chance last weekend. The Grand...
