This exquisite, historic hotel is absolutely beautiful. I've stayed several times over the years & it never fails to deliver. Employees are all helpful & friendly. Our room was a larger one, very clean & attractive. Have been both for business & pleasure. Business amenities are very well done for conferences. Check in & out is done reasonably quickly. Of...

We've stayed at this hotel at least twice and have loved our experiences. The staff is wonderfully helpful and the hotel itself is charming and decorated beautifully in historic pieces. The rooms are large and comfortable and the beds are cozy. Do yourself a favor in the restaurant and just order the hot brown. It is a classic. Before or... More

My boyfriend and I visited the restaurant on a Saturday morning, and the hot brown was still available even if is not on the breakfast menu. The service was great, I never had to ask for a refill. The Kentucky Hot Brown was exceptional! The atmosphere was very homey and elegant.

Travel back in time. The street would be filled with Model Ts, enter the lobby and you might find flappers and Gatsby. The woodwork is magnificent and amazing chandeliers light the lobby area. The staff, from shuttle driver to front desk to housekeeping are outstanding. While the hotel may take you back a century, the rooms are updated, clean and... More

Very lovely, large room, spacious bathroom, lots of windows. Bed was a little soft for my taste but not terrible. Helpful, nice staff. The lobby areas are just amazing. The updates haven't harmed the historic character of this hotel. The lobby bar was a little dreary and the late night food selection limited.

An absolutely gorgeous hotel! Historic, yet updated at the same time. Beautiful lobby and wonderful room. Our view wasn't good, so that was disappointing, but everything else made up for it. Staff was the best I've encountered since Disney, and that's saying something! Close to 4th Street restaurants and nightlife. Try the Sicilian next door for awesome pizza. Also, don't... More

It looks like you are coming back to 20's as soon as you arrive. Very clean, comfortable, kindly staff and great location. The breakfast is good, but there´s a Starbucks close to the hotel. Don´t miss the Hot Browns, very famous plate in the region. The hotel was also locations for Elizabethtown movie! Check the shuttle availability from-to airport (about... More

The stress melted away the minute we arrived. From the doorman to the concierge, front desk, housekeeping, bar and restaurant staff our stay was perfect! We could not have had a better team in place to assist us with every need and desire and we are so very grateful to The Brown Hotel and their staff for making our visit... More

My wife and I enjoy staying at historic hotels, such as the The Hermitage in Nashville, West Baden Springs, The Netherland Hilton in Cincinnati, The Waldorf in NYC, etc. I recently had the opportunity to visit The Brown. Let me cut to the chase. We had a good experience and we will return some day. Accolades to the ownership group... More

We like to stay at historic hotels, and have stayed at plenty including The Hermitage in Nashville and The Williamsburg Lodge in Virginia. The Brown Hotel is a lovely historic hotel steeped with charm. The lobby is a sight to behold, the Lobby Bar is a wonderful place to catch a bite to eat or relax with a drink, and... More
