My boyfriend and I stayed here in early December when we went to Louisville for the weekend. Overall I enjoyed my stay. Its an older hotel so you have to take this into account when choosing to stay here. The lobby is beautiful and the bar and J. Grahams cafe within the hotel are decent. I found the staff to... More

The hotel is a very beautiful hotel with lots of character. There is plenty of space to socialize. I found my room to be quite nice. The bathroom was completely separate from the other space. There was also a large walk-in closet. The hotel is located in a great location that is within walking distance of many restaurants and sites... More

Someone else chose the city and hotel. My room was on the Club Floor and was spacious and wonderful. (I have stayed in rooms smaller than my closet ... well, that could be a slight exaggeration.) Bed was comfortable. Very reliable Wi-Fi throughout the building. My meetings were on the first floor, and it was a very comfortable setting. The... More

Stayed at the Brown for a business trip to Louisville. The hotel is nice if you like the older, very traditional style. 2nd floor lobby is very classic - though nothing like the grand lobbies at the Copley Plaza in Boston or the Palace in San Francisco. Rooms are OK, though it feels a little like staying at my grandmother's... More

Congenial staff, great location, small but clean rooms, feather top beds.The bar area and lounge on the second floor is beautiful. There are many restaurants nearby and the hotel restaurant serves a super brunch buffet.

While visiting Louisville on business. I kept hearing about this legendary sandwich called the hot brown. I was told it originated at the Brown Hotel what better way to enjoy it then the original spot where it was created. I walked into the restaurant and was greeted by a friendly host. And seated within minutes. When the server arrived I... More

My wife and I stayed here for a get away weekend. We had not been to Louisville before and were planning to do the Urban Bourbon Trail. I picked The Brown based on TripAdvisor ratings and because I like something different from the large chain hotels. It was built in the 1920's and retains the style and elegance of that... More

This hotel provides everything you need. Great service, good food, awesome location. My room was one of the smaller ones, but very comfortable - everything you'd want if you were to hang out there all day. We had meetings all day and the food was excellent. The ballroom was a little noisy for a meeting, but that was about my... More

This is a great place. From the friendly check-in to the easy check out it was a great experience. The location in downtown is tremendous and is even a stop on the ghost tour. The room was roomy and comfortable. We had a late supper in the dining room and tried the Hot Brown and their signature Derby Pie. Loved... More

Spent night here after spending day in bourbon country. Overall this place was excellent. When entering take time to take in lobby architecture because it is like you are stepping back in time. Our rooms very very large and beds comfortable. Shower's water pressure was a little to low but that would be my only complaint about the room. Also... More
