We came for lunch and to check out the hotel to prospect for a future stay. We had a delicious lunch in the cafe and had great service! Everyone was so nice and friendly and hospitable! The hot brown and mint juleps were perfect! We will definitely return!!!!!

We stayed at The Brown December 19- December 21st. Fabulous room, spacious, clean, quiet and a very comfortable bed. The people are helpful, courteous, and professional; very attentive to the quest's wants and needs. The food was excellent, and the afternoon complimentary hot spiced tea and the hot chocolate in the lobby was a nice touch. Will definitely stay again.

My wife and I stayed at The Brown December 20, 2014 while attending a David Chappelle show about 100 yards away at the Louisville Palace. I can't say enough about how great our stay was! From the valet staff, front desk, and restaurant staff.... everyone was amazingly friendly and inviting. We stayed in room 1319 on the concierge floor. I... More

My visit to the Brown was wonderful. The service could not have been better, that is absolutely the first thing you will notice. A close second is the gorgeous attention to detail in the décor and atmosphere of the Brown. Lovely furnishing with an antique look. Super plush mattresses made the bed hard to leave in the morning. My room... More

Dear Guest, Always great to hear "wonderful." Thank you for noticing the attention to detail. We did recently purchase all new beds – great to hear you noticed. And thank you for noting the spacious rooms…when the hotel first opened in 1923 it had over 600 rooms and in a later renovation the rooms were enlarged, and the count reduced... More

Due to our own business we are drawn to the old classic hotels. The Brown does not disappoint. It is beautifully well kept and inviting. Rooms are not recently redone but still very nice , clean.

My boyfriend and I stayed here in early December when we went to Louisville for the weekend. Overall I enjoyed my stay. Its an older hotel so you have to take this into account when choosing to stay here. The lobby is beautiful and the bar and J. Grahams cafe within the hotel are decent. I found the staff to... More

The hotel is a very beautiful hotel with lots of character. There is plenty of space to socialize. I found my room to be quite nice. The bathroom was completely separate from the other space. There was also a large walk-in closet. The hotel is located in a great location that is within walking distance of many restaurants and sites... More

Someone else chose the city and hotel. My room was on the Club Floor and was spacious and wonderful. (I have stayed in rooms smaller than my closet ... well, that could be a slight exaggeration.) Bed was comfortable. Very reliable Wi-Fi throughout the building. My meetings were on the first floor, and it was a very comfortable setting. The... More

Stayed at the Brown for a business trip to Louisville. The hotel is nice if you like the older, very traditional style. 2nd floor lobby is very classic - though nothing like the grand lobbies at the Copley Plaza in Boston or the Palace in San Francisco. Rooms are OK, though it feels a little like staying at my grandmother's... More

Congenial staff, great location, small but clean rooms, feather top beds.The bar area and lounge on the second floor is beautiful. There are many restaurants nearby and the hotel restaurant serves a super brunch buffet.
