The ambience was sort of there although there was a guy playing department store piano, you know where he plays just enough of the notes of actual music to be recognized. The tea itself was average, the sandwiches good, the scones almost tasteless. I suppose it was Devonshire cream but like none I've had here or abroad. A little jar... More

The experience of afternoon tea in this historic hotel was highlighted by the wonderful ambience of the grand lobby. There were many teas to choose from and the three tiered serving stand contained two of the best scones I've ever eaten, wonderful little tea sandwiches and assorted sweet pastries. It was delightful!

Great High Tea in a superb setting. An English High Tea with all the little treats connected with same! Beautiful old hotel in downtown Denver. Takes you back to a slower more stately time. Wonderful piano music...excellent service. Highly recommended!

We went to have tea during a girlfriends weekend and it was such a treat. First know, we both love tea (yes a prerequisite to the outing), second we loved the idea of tiny little crust less sandwiches, scones, and sweet treats (another prerequisite). The tea is in the lobby of this lovely old hotel and you feel a little... More

This is the atrium lobby of the hotel. Elegant tea service in the afternoon, but it is also an extension of the Palace Arms bar, which is cigar-friendly...so have a drink here while enjoying the music unless you like smoky clothes.

This is a pricey tea, but so worth it. Very elegant surroundings, lovely live music, and excellent scones and little sandwiches. Great selection of delicious teas, and attentive service. We will go again!!

I attended a bridal tea for the ladies of both families the day prior to the wedding. I have been to teas at many places however I think the tea at the Brown Palace was the best. Servings of scones, tea sandwiches and desserts were more than generous, not to mention scrumptious. The service was impeccable. Our tea was for... More

High tea or low tea... As tradition would have it: High tea was the tea at supper time also known as Meat tea. This is between around 6 pm. Low tea is more the afternoon tea (before 4pm) and the word comes from the sitting arrangements. Low comfortable couches/chairs in the afternoon. Early in the 19th century, tea consumption was...

Six of us experienced tea at the Brown Palace Hotel Tea room. It was delish. Beautifully decorated sandwiches, delightful teas and desserts with gold leaf. (Edibile Art?) You can have an ''encore'' on your taste treats if you so desire. Yummers. Dress up if you want...it will be a memory. The pianist we heard played tunes we loved ...so we... More
