Grand old hotel in a out of the way location.Posted Oct 4, 2013
Pros: Old world charm at its best.
Cons: Not what we went to the hotel for, but the TV was very small.
Location: Natural beauty and lots of special sites.
Wanted a different location and at the same time get a little history of the old west. The Grand Union gave us a look back out a hotel that must have been a welcome site to cowboys and others coming off of the plains. Had a wonderful day visiting the many museums and seeing the sites. And then that a first class meal with a wine list that was very impressive.

Charming hotel with a great place in history.Posted Sep 29, 2013
Pros: Its site on the river. The cleanliness and comfort. Good restaurant. Friendly staff.
Cons: Liked it the way it is.
Location: We didn't have time to visit the museums in Ft. Benton, but hear they provide a good look at early Montana history and particularly river commerce on
The whole time I was staying here I thought of what the activity must have been in the 19th century as the steamboat arrived from St. Louis when Ft. Benton was the head of navigation on the Missouri River. The hotel is beautifully restored. Dinner and breakfast were great, and Ft. Benton is a real window on early Montana history.

Not a place of luxury but quaint and a step back in time.

What a Gem!!Posted Aug 1, 2013
If you haven't stayed at the Grand Union, you've missed out on a crucial monument in the history of the West. Located right on the Missouri River scouted by Lewis and Clark, and at one time the classiest hotel between Seattle and the Twin Cities on the Great Northern Railroad, the Union is a gem. Bring your bike and explore Fort Benton--you'll be glad you did!

Unique!Posted Sep 8, 2012
A fabulous job was done upgrading this historic hotel! I've stayed at other historic hotels and National Park Lodges that were not nearly this well done. The staff was very gracious and helpful. Breakfast topped it all off with fresh fruit and scrumptious homemade baked goods. I'm hoping to get back someday

an incredible gem in the middle of nowhere!Posted Aug 9, 2011
I can't believe how lucky we were to find this amazing town and hotel! Beautiful, interesting history, fine dining, and our kids 16,12 & 9 were entertained by google-ing any haunted history of the hotel. Great staff, can't wait to go back.

Beautifully renovated gemPosted Jul 10, 2010
What a special experience in this wonderfully renovated hotel. Don't miss dinner in their very fine restaurant. And breakfast was wonderful (and not your run-of-the-mill make your own waffles and cereal -- clearly the restaurant's superb chef gets up early!)
