We travelled to Louisville for the 1st time to attend the SkillsUSA conference. The Brown Hotel is classified as an Historic Hotel of America and this played into our choice to stay. We were greeted at the entrance by an attentive valet attendant/bellhop. The lobby is on the 2nd floor and the history of the hotel hits you right away... More

I stayed at The Brown Hotel for the SkillsUSA National Championships with a large delegation from Pennsylvania. I can honestly say that The Brown Hotel is the nicest hotel in which I've ever stayed! The building is beautiful, the staff is attentive and super-courteous, and the great thing is that everyone was just as wonderful to the students as they... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Brown Hotel and had a wonderful time here. The service was impeccable with cheery receptionists and helpful staff. The rooms are a little on the older side but are clean and well kept with plenty of space. They have a breakfast buffet on weekends in the cafe downstairs but we chose... More

Went to the hotel for breakfast and to get the famous Hot Brown. It did NOT disappoint. The food was delicious and the service was superb. The hotel is gorgeous and has a great history. Definitely worth exploring. TIP - if you are eating at one of the hotel's restaurants, you can partake in free valet parking! Just be sure... More

Lovely hotel and location. Our room was very spacious with a very large bathroom. The decor is be traditional which may not be to everyone a taste but the beds were comfy and we slept well for the 3 nights we were there. The lifts can be a bit slow as there's a large number of floors for only about... More

Don't be discouraged by the pictures. although the hotel is in the heritage building, the rooms are tastefully appointed and not at all over the top. Modern, clean, spacious. Great breakfast in the lounge room and central location. World class.

We had a coupon from Travel Zoo, so our cost for the stay was very reasonable. It included the valet parking, a bourbon fleet and a room on the executive level which included drinks and snacks at night and breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and nicely furnished. The staff was very friendly. Do NOT miss the brown... More
