“Fantastic Hotel with lots of history”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Livingston Montana is a town that seems to value its Frontier Heritage, and the Murray Hotel is a prime example of that pride. My wife and I recently stayed there for 1 night, and were fortunate to take advantage of the Murray Hotel "Bistro Package". We had a suite on the 4th Floor, wonderful dinner at the 2nd Street Bistro, and Breakfast at the Coffee Crossing. All of the time spent in Livingston was a treat, and if you plan to visit, try to stay at least 1 night in the Livingston. As a side note, be sure to visit the numerous Artist Galleries and shops. The Montana Watch Company and the Parks Reece Gallery should not be missed.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 4th Floor, which was a bit quieter than lower floors (due to proximity of the Bar...

The Murray is very convenient as a home base for seeing the lively town of Livingston, Montana, which is about an hour from an entrance to Yellowstone Park. It's easy walking to a movie theater, restaurants, coffee shops, bookstores and galleries. The Bistro restaurant adjacent to the Murray serves delicious food and drinks.
They do supply you with earplugs since the train does go by periodically, but it didn't bother us at all and our room was on the train side.
Overall, a very comfortable hotel, filled with fascinating historical memorabilia.

Went with a bunch of friends for New Years. Went to the in house restaraunt. Then they had a good band downstairs but we just had a fun time hanging out in one of the decent size suites.

Room Tip: The rooms are all nice that I can tell. Try not to get right over the bar. Its worth getting one o...

We would never have even thought about staying here, if it wasn't for the "Get Lost in Montana" promotion on the airwaves here in Alberta.

A wonderful surprise, really authentic decor, a great meal deal with the Bistro next door, and the chance to "live" the old west.

Room Tip: The Murray Hotel was (is) a railroad hotel, across from the main station. There are trains.

We had a wonderful time staying at the Murray Hotel this weekend. I would definitely recommend it if you are staying to have a good time at the Murray Bar or partying it up in Livingston, but if you are looking for a good night's rest, I might pass. They give you earplugs in the rooms for a reason. VERY LOUD. The building is old and full of character, which I believe is why the walls are paper thin. Overall, however, the hotel has great amenities. Wonderful beds, very clean, charm, and flat screen TVs. The shower drain was a little plugged. Overall, I would probably stay again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room as far away from the bar as possible.
