My wife and I spent two days here in the heart of Helena this last week. The rooms are spacious and well taken care of, the public areas are very comfortable. Even though the hotel is in the middle of a busy sector of town, our room (3rd floor, halfway down the hall from the elevator) was quiet enough... though, I'll talk about some other sound issues below. There was plenty of lighting, but with the shades drawn, it was very dark. Perfect for catching up on some sleep.
A few downsides, however:
1.) The hotel is hard to find. Even once we found it's physical location, getting to the reception desk was a trick, and involved some narrow streets and an alley or two. This seems to be the case with all the businesses in this area of town.
2.) The elevator is hard to find. Seriously. Every time I went to find it, I walked past it. It's hidden back in a little area which looks more like an open room.
3.) The hall and (adjoining) room next door are very easy to hear. Very easy. Let's say, the couple in the room next door had some fun one of the nights. less

We do appreciate your comments mountana_standard. The hotel is located in the Great Northern Town Center on Great Northern Blvd., which is not a through street. The Town Center was built where the rail train track were. We have restaurants, and movie theater as well as the Carousel and the Exploration works children's museum. I am pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and we hope you will come back to see us again when your travels bring you to Helena.
