Accommodating staff! We arrived at 11am. They immediately placed us in a room, so that we could freshen up and rest. Later in afternoon they upgraded us to our King Suite with Club level access. We enjoyed validated parking, complimentary breakfast and evening beverages in club room. We were within walking distance to many restaurants and museums and shops. A... More

We stayed just one night to attend a concert at the Palace, which is only steps away. The bed and bed linens were extremely comfortable and the room very clean. All the employees were super nice and helpful. We would definitely stay again.

My husband and I booked a Living Social package for a night out the Brown Hotel. We live in Louisville, but decided to do a mini staycation. We were not disappointed. We upgraded the Living Social package to the Club Room, which was awesome. I would recommend getting the Concierge Floor access (13th floor). In the morning there is an... More

It's rare that I have a truly unique experience when I'm traveling. But the Brown Hotel is unique.The brown hotel is in downtown Louisville Kentucky. The area surrounding the hotel is exceedingly cute. Attractive shops, restaurants and places of local interest are all walking distance from the Brown Hotel. The hotel itself exudes old world elegance. Lush furniture, marble floors,... More

Dear Guest, Thank you so much for taking the time to detail your wonderful visit. We work very hard to present more of a unique, residential type inn, rather than a big city hotel. Our staff were so pleased to read your note on service…what it's all about. Please allow me to handle your next reservation and I'll block a... More

We have been two years in a row to The Brown and I'm thinking of requesting a standing reservation every January. The Brown offers the finest in guest services, elegance, and accommodations. The staff is kind and helpful, the rooms are home away from home with attention to detail and the food could not be any better. We choose the... More

This hotel is one of the best, if not THE best, I have ever stayed in. I was traveling for business, which can be draining at times. The Brown made me feel right at home. The staff went above and beyond to accommodate any request that our group had. The interior is absolutely gorgeous and I loved exploring and admiring... More

This is also on Expedia. We went to Louisville just to check out the city and eat some good food. I picked this hotel because of the reviews and the fact that i could get $150 off because of the VIP and it did not disappoint at all. The room was spacious and beautiful, the furniture was really nice, and... More

This was our third stay at the Brown and we were pleased with the room, service and attitude of the staff.

We absolutely loved our stay here. First of all, the hotel is a gorgeous historic property. Our room was beautiful, clean, and had a very comfortable bed. Service from everyone - from the valets to the front desk staff - was stellar. And we loved that the hotel was just steps away from the 4th street downtown area. Be sure... More
