Following a multi-year, multi-million dollar restoration, supported by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the U.S. Parks Department, and the Montana State Historic Preservation Office, the Grand Union Hotel re-opened its doors on its 117th anniversary on November 2, 1999. Continuously updated since, the Grand Union is proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the recipient of various state and national restoration awards recognizing the historical character of Montana’s oldest operating hotel and one of its most famous landmarks.
The vision was to return the building to its original hotel and restaurant use capturing the historic ambiance of the lobby, rooms and restaurant yet with modern amenities and uniquely Montana farm to table dining. The result is an authentically historic, lodging and dining experience, set on the river banks of the Upper Missouri National Wild & Scenic River and gateway to the Upper Missouri River Breaks National Monument. The Grand Union is proud to continue its tradition of providing the grandest lodging and dining experience to be found in Montana.
