Helena, Bozeman, and Southwest Montana Hotels


Grand Hotel

At a Glance


  • virtually shrieks once-grand Old West
  • restaurant decor and food still qualify as grand


  • claw-foot tubs in hallway baths notwithstanding, the dearth of en suite facilities won't please all
  • on a given day the "chef's choice" breakfast might not coincide with "guest's choice."

Grand Hotel Review

Fine dining and an 1890s saloon are two of the attractions of this classic Western hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, in downtown Big Timber. The attractive 1890 Room ($$$$) serves steaks, seafood, and lamb for dinner, plus decadent desserts. For lunch, the 1890 Saloon claims to have served "cattlemen, cowboys, sheepherders, miners, railroad men and travelers" for more than 100 years. Guest rooms are small, clean, and comfortable, with period furnishings—the kind of accommodations you might find over the Longbranch Saloon in Gunsmoke.
