“Nice place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

The hotel is very cool. Great location to walk along the river and within crawling distance of about 5 bars. Had a basic room and it was very nice. The bar has a decent selection of beer and wine only and it is overpriced by Montana standards. We had an appetizer, it was prawns for $13. I was disappointed as the plate was sparsely populated with 3 medium sized prawns and the flavor was unremarkable. We slept very well since our room was quiet and the bed was comfy.

Room Tip: We had a basic single room and it was very nice.

I discovered the Grand Union through word of mouth. I had just finished up a rigorous four week business assignment and needed a place to stay before flying out of Great Falls in the morning (hotel is located about 30 miles outside of GF). The hotel cannot fail to capture one's imagination and is so enchanting it must be experienced to be truly appreciated. Gazing at the river and the surrounding environs, it is easy to picture the steamboats, traders, fortune seekers and adverturer's milling about as they did in the late 1800's. The rooms are beautifully appointed and modern while remaining true to the era. Dinner in the dining room is a must. Linger over several courses featuring local cuisine prepared by the executive chef.

Room Tip: 202 is rumored to be the best room in the hotel. The window opens to a the Missouri River vista.

Was there on business...from the terrific restaurant to the well-appointed room to the immaculant restoration...could not be a better experience. The chef is world class and the stay was as good as it gets!!

Room Tip: They DO have an elevator (behind the staircase) so check in is a breeze...had a corner upgraded suit...

The Grand Union was the first luxury hotel in Montana, and it quietly reflects its pedigree. The present owners have combined historical accuracy, impeccable taste, relaxed service and extraordinary dining into a archetype for restored historic hotels. We return twice a year, minimum, to commune with the spirits of a very real Montana.

Room Tip: All are good but the suites provide extra space (you can't have 205 if we're staying).

My girlfriend and I spent a magical Christmas with the gang at the Grand Union. We knew we had made the right choice right from the moment that we walked into the lobby and saw the wonderful Christmas decorations.

This grand old hotel wonderfully tells its history while being a very comfortable modern hotel with good sized rooms and wireless internet.

Spectacularly located on the banks of the Missouri River this hidden gem is perfect for a quiet getaway. The rooms have huge windows and we had a great view of sunrises over the river and a look along the park and Front Street from the second floor junior suite.

But better than all of that is the staff that will do anything to make your stay comfortable. While the place has an amazing restaurant it was going to be closed over Christmas so the staff called all over the local area to find a restaurant open on Christmas Day and they provided us with home baked muffins at our door for Christmas morning breakfast. When they heard we were planning on going in to tour the Charlie Russell Museum in Great Falls they provided us with free passes.

Thanks to all at the Grand Union for a memorable magical Christmas.
