This was my husband and my first trip to Louisville and based upon other reviewers, we chose to stay at the Brown Hotel. We were not disappointed in the choice. From check-in to check-out we were treated as "special guests". The housekeeping staff was friendly and accommodating; they even greeted us with ice for our ice-bucket as we arrived during... More

The Brown hotel has a wonderful lobby. The service is outstanding. Our room was spacious and comfortable. However, at this price point, I would expect bathrobes in the room and a wider assortment of bath products, etc. We enjoyed our stay, but it was a bit far away from most of the downtown attractions.

This was our second stay at the Brown, and it simply reaffirmed my choice in making it my very favorite place to stay anywhere. Every member of the staff that we came in contact with went above and beyond expectations. Concierge Kelly made our time in the club lounge an absolute delight. The valet/bell staff, in particular Collin, Steve and... More

There had been so much hype about staying at the historic and famous Brown Hotel - I found it disappointing once checked in. The rooms reminded me more of a motel type feel and the bathrooms were dated. We went walking around after dinner and not much to do at this end of the street. I would recommend staying closer...

I enjoyed my two-night stay on a recent business trip. The lobby is amazing and the front desk staff provided exceptional service. I encountered several different staff members and each of them were pleasant. The room is nice, spacious and clean. I was very pleased with my time in the room. I did spend one day in a conference room... More

The Brown Hotel is one of those old-line/traditional hotels that places a premium on service. It appears each member of the staff was well trained to provide maximum service witha smile and professionalism.

The Brown Hotel is a very beautiful historic hotel. The lobby and restaurants are gorgeous. Our room was very nice. It was clean and had two big windows. (We only wish it had a refrigerator.) The front desk staff was very polite. We enjoyed the fact that we could walk everywhere from the hotel. The only complaints we had are... More

If I could move in to the Brown, I would. It is simply classic. From the stunning lobby to the impeccable service, the stay is always perfect. I suggest the concierge level. The breakfast and evening spread is worthwhile. And on this floor, the rooms are a bit larger and the bathrooms as well. I also used their Kentucky Board... More

Loved this property - so much tradition. Care is taken in the way the hotel staff cleans and maintains this hotel. Location was good. Furnishings in the lobby as well as in the room were comfortable and top notch. Bathroom was small-ish. Every time I was in the lobby, the bar was closed, so I missed out on the mint... More

What a wonderful historic hotel. I will admit my room was smaller than expected, but well appointed. Bathroom was very large and updated! Staff always spoke we very attentive. Housekeeping even opened my door on a couple occasions when I came in with my hands full. If you stay at the Brown, you must try the "Hot Brown" which is... More
