We stayed at the Grand Union Hotel Tuesday July 7th. 2015 for a night. Our first impression of the historic hotel was wow the restoration was spot on from pictures. I also liked that the inside of the building was not old and musty smelling like the pioneer hotel down the street. Very impressive architecually inside as well as the...

We've been here several times and each time the Grand Union continues to be a total pleasure. The staff are very professional and personable! Food, rooms, location superb. Fort Benton is so historical and there are great museums.....after you finish this, put your kayak in the water and spend a week on the Missouri River.

Stayed at the Grand Union on the 1st night of a 4 day motorcycle trip with some friends. What a fabulous place, loaded with history and ambience. Great rooms, modern but with the feel of 19th century Montana Territory. Also had a great meal in the Union Grill. We all had something different and no one was disappointed. Would highly...

Staff, food and rooms were all superior at this establishment. Room rates include a larger than unusual continental breakfast. Right on the Missouri River this hotel's vies only compliment their style. There is an elevator as well as a grand staircase to the rooms upstairs. Free parking right out front.

Location was really nice: by the river, nice view, the best one could get in this very small town. The hotel is dating from back when the fort has been founded and a lot of original design elements were preserved. This gives it a very nice touch. Reasonably comfortable and a bit noisy. Breakfast was ok, although we really disliked...

Nicest US property I have stayed in over the past three years. 19th century gem that has been brought into the 21st century with full realization of its historical roots, top-flight style, creative touches, attention to the smallest detail, and spotless presentation. The renovation has been a real gift to this community and anchors the business and tourism industries (with...

This is a must see and experience on your bucket list! We are going back this year. It is right on the Missouri River and there is a park and riverwalk next to the property. We have heard about an interesting agricultural museum in Fort Benton that we plan on seeing this trip.

I've stayed at the Grand Union several times since it has opened and it is wonderful. The rooms are comfortable and the service is excellent. When visiting my family in Great Falls, we will often drive to Fort Benton for dinner at the Grand - it's well worth the drive!

This 19th century hotel went through some rough times before being beautifully restored. The room was smallish but had a modern bathroom. The hotel sits beside the Missouri River and the view from our room looked downstream with the river on the right and the small downtown on the left. Very nice. Our only complaint was that the TV was...

Unbeliably good food with excellent service. Staff was extremely nice and helpful. Sit outside if the weather allows, it's a beautiful view looking right out at the Missouri river. A must see if your in Fort Benton. I will definitely be coming back to visit the Grand Union next time I come to town.
