Louisville is unusual in that it has two grand hotels (the other is The Seelbach on Main St.). The Brown is south of downtown and remote from most attractions, so plan to drive or cab to what you want to see. However, The Brown features wonderful rooms, an excellent dining room, and a lobby bar that offers Bourbon flights. And... More

Wonderful property. Lobby is breathtaking; enjoyed the lobby bar. The hotel staff was helpful and friendly without going over board. The room was comfortable, well appointed. Large windows, lots of light. We had a good breakfast in the English Grill. A very nice server, Amanda. My husband had the Hot Brown for breakfast, Amanda brought him the recipe if he... More

I've always wanted to stay at the Brown and finally got the chance with a large group of Civil War reenactors for a riverboat weekend. The hotel staff could not have been more accommodating -- special kudos to the bell staff who helped with masses of luggage, hoop skirts, bonnet boxes, and the like, getting taxis, answering questions, etc. The...

I enjoy staying at the Brown always. The rooms are not cookie cutter and the furniture and bedding is great. Big cotton robes to feel more comfortable. Candy jar in the room w/flowers. Bar & lobby area is beautiful w/period furniture. Christmas time decor is always a treat. My first impression is the very professional and properly polite staff that... More

On a recent stay I was reminded once again why I love staying at The Brown so much... The historic building is beautiful and elegant, but the staff make the hotel stand out. Everyone is wonderful there, remembering you by name. Pat, in the concierge club truly stands out as the perfect example of this... she makes you feel pampered... More

Lovely hotel in downtown Louisville Ky. Listed as a 4 star hotel ~ the staff and cleanliness of the accommodations make it true. Beautiful lobby with piano player in lobby bar. 2 restaurants in hotel ($$-$$$). Rooms are small but very clean. Parking in hotel parking building is $20 a night (my only complaint). Best thing about the hotel is... More

My boyfriend and I attended a wedding and stayed at The Brown Hotel. The wedding started at 2:00pm and The Brown staff allowed us to access the room early in order to get ready for the wedding. This decreased a lot of my stress about checking in the hotel in between the ceremony and the reception like my friends staying... More

This is one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever seen. The staff is amazing. The valet/bus service, front desk, gift shop girls, restaurant staff, housekeeping are top notch. I had an accident and was not able to go shopping, and I was afraid they might turn up their noses at me, but these people are just plain NICE.... More

My husband and I stayed for two nights. We chose it because of its great location. We were within walking distance of everything we wanted to do including Fourth Street Live and the Louisville Palace Theater. The hotel is very beautiful and historic. You have to try the hot brown sandwich. It was amazing! Room service breakfast was quick and... More

I checked in late after arriving from the West Coast and was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite. The Muhammad Ali suite is located on the fourth floor and is the most luxurious room in the hotel. The living room features a flat screen TV, sofa, chairs, and desk. An adjoining dining room seats four under a chandelier... More
