Location was central to the City of Helena. Overall the facility was clean, would recommend vacuuming elevators as sweeping doesn't always address the corners. Great Breakfast with an extremely courteous staff tending the breakfast area. Silver Star Steak House was good, a bit pricey but good. The service the first night was mediocre and was outstanding the second time.

Thanks for a wonderful score. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. With the city construction, directions can be a little confusing, especially with the navigation systems not correcting for the closed roads. We hope to see you again.
