The hotel lobby was gorgeous! Exactly how the reviews described. We were about a 3 block walk from the 4th St Live center but arrived on a Sunday and little was open. I used the valet service quite frequently and they were extremely hospitable and friendly. However the front desk staff upon check in and our waitress at lunch were... More

My boyfriend and I travelled from Michigan for a wedding in Louisville. We were told that this hotel was amazing and were excited to be staying there for a long weekend. However, when we got to the room we were not impressed. It was large and I understood the historical feel but thats about it. The head board had dust... More

I do like historic hotels but some of the older rooms can feel a bit tight its worth the visit and to have a hot brown I think there are other choices in town for the same price that are a little roomier this hotel is for the historic experience in my opinion the staff are on point and the...

As the most elegant ballrooms in the city, we choose the Brown Hotel's Crystal Ballroom for our wedding day, but the ballroom wasn't the only perfect part about our choice. Our service was 5-star, our room was clean and fresh robes awaited our arrival. From the fabulous food served for dinner and breakfast to the helpful bellmen and event coordinators,... More

I booked this hotel due to the reviews and the "Four Diamond" award. The actual room was spacious but nothing special. We were "upgraded" to the Club Level (due to the fact that my friend was supposed to have two beds, but didn't) which gave us access to a special room with continental breakfast and nightly wine, beer, cocktails and...

Upon arriving at The Brown Hotel we circled the block a few times looking for the parking garage as there was zero signage to indicate where to go. Once we found the entrance it was easy enough. The hotel charges $20 a day for the parking (included in your bill) but the parking garage charges $18 a day. Check in... More

I went to a wedding reception at The Brown Hotel and the entire reception was wonderful including the beautiful Crystal Ballroom, the service, the meal, the appetizers, and more. The rooms were very nice and there are some great amenities included in the price of the room.

We stayed here 4th of July weekend. We have stayed here before and it is always good. You can't beat the location we were able to walk to dinner and down to Waterfront park for the fireworks. I love the lobby bar it is gorgeous and they have an EXCELLENT selection of Bourbon. We stayed on the club level the... More

If you like historical hotels this is the place for you. Rooms were comfortable and spacious. Front door service to check in very poor. Unloaded the car at the front door, walked up to the bellman with my luggage who asked me what he could do for me. When I told him I was checking in he gave me a... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Brown Hotel in Louisville. Room was nice, staff was great. Lobby bar was incredible. Bell hop shuttle service was a huge bonus, which was willing to drop us off and pick us up at local restaurants.
