The hotel itself shows a few signs of age, nothing huge mainly faded carpet in places. The decor is great though, with antiques mixed with horse themed, Louisville is home to the Kentucky Derby so you would expect this. We had a Club Room and the selection and service was a lot better than many other hotels that I have... More

I love this old hotel and even at the ripe old age of 93 their is still the beauty and hospitality you don't find at the "chain hotels". Everyone from the Valets/bell staff, front desk personnel, gift shop ladies and restaurants seemed to have a genuine concern of making my stay as pleasurable as possible. My room was spacious, nicely... More

We needed to take a last minute trip to Louisville to see a relative that lives downtown, and decided that this was a place we had to check off our list. I'm so glad we did. It is just beautiful. It takes you back to a different era, really. We had an upper floor King Room and it was huge!... More

I chose The Brown for both its location and for its obvious historic beauty. I booked us the Bourbon and Browns package, which included one night’s stay, valet parking, a flight of bourbon, Hot Brown sandwiches and 4 bourbon balls. Kentucky at its finest! We arrived around 8pm on a Friday and left the car with the valet who was... More

What a treat to stay in such a lovingly cared for Grand Dame of a hotel! I've stayed here twice in recent months and have enjoyed every service I sampled - from the decadent Hot Brown to breakfast at J. Grahams and the glass of wine in the lounge on the Concierge Level. I wouldn't hesitate to return for a... More

The Brown Hotel provided the service level you would expect from a Louisville landmark hotel. The bell staff, front desk and restaurant were very gracious and helpful. I received thoughtful instructions to 4th street "live" which is right down the street. The room service breakfast was timely and delicious! The Hot Brown was amazing and no matter where you stay...

I joke about the Haunted Hotel, but I love the stories that goes with this place. Great service and great food. Rooms are "roomy". Single cup coffee in the rooms are good, good local beer and bourbon at the bar. Good fitness center. This hotel is located next to some great restaurants, bowling, bars and breweries. @runforbeer

The check-in process was not only welcoming but efficient. I received a call from the front desk within a half hour asking if I found everything satisfactory. Everything was most satisfactory, but I could not find my cell phone charger. I was told someone would bring one to me to use during my stay. I found the charger but was... More
