We spent the weekend here with family. I loved the hotel. Being a traveling family there are positives and negatives for us but we would go here again. The negatives really are only the long waits for elevators and the prices . You will even find that the same sandwich can cost different amounts depending on which restaurant in the... More

I am not too familiar with the historic aspect of Louisville and The Brown hotel. I booked it through Hotwire Hot rate. We stayed for one night only. It is a beautiful hotel with tons of detail in the décor. The room was cozy and the bed pretty comfortable. We requested a roll-a-way and they had it delivered within minutes.... More

With the help of the excellent staff at The Brown we were able to plan a wedding in six months from out of town. Debbie Whitelock helped me with every little detail and executed a party to remember forever. All of my guests said it was the best wedding reception they had ever attended. The hotel is beautiful and provided... More

This is just such a beautiful and historic place. It really brings back old Louisville and is the perfect place to stay to enjoy a resurgent downtown Louisville. The room was very nice the bed very comfortable and everywhere I looked there were great details to observe. The service was spot on and the hotel has such a great upscale... More

I have been to the Brown before just to have one of their famous "Hot Brown" dishes, but this was my first time staying overnight. I was here in late July for business, and had a very enjoyable stay. The staff was warm and welcoming, the room was a perfect size for a single occupancy, clean and bright, and the... More

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.
