Only problem - no pool. Other than that, this is a beautiful, posh hotel. I have stayed here for an annual conference for the last five or six years. Bar is expensive, but they make OK drinks. Breakfast buffet is good, too.

I have always wanted to stay here; glad I did. Rooms are amazing and well appointed. Easy access to much of the downtown area. There is a zip-bus, free shuttle out front which will take you to various parts of the downtown. Several restaurants to choose from and a huge lobby where you can sit and drink mint juleps or...

Once more at the Brown in Louisville and once again despite the grand structure the accommodations are more Courtyard Marriot than Preferred Hotel. Bathroom has Home Depot tiles, fiberglass tub, and tawdry appointments. The mattress was springy like a trampoline and the pillows unremarkable. The windows are screwed shot, the LG television small and encased in a wooden dresser. Breakfast... More

Let's start with the good: This is a beautiful hotel and the building is very well maintained. The location couldn't be better and it was very easy to get to. When I arrived to check in the valet staff and the front desk clerk were both very friendly and helpful which was a plus. The rooms are nice and quiet... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the Brown Hotel last week. We stayed on the club floor based upon recommendations of other guests on TripAdvisor and I must echo this- even with children, I totally recommend the club floor. The club floor offered a light breakfast which included child friendly foods like danish, cereal and fruit. In the evening there... More

I stayed here for a conference for work and I was really impressed with the hotel. The lobby where you check in is actually on the second floor and not where you get dropped off which is the first floor so it was something that I was not used to. I loved the historic look of the hotel and it... More
