We did the Banjo Billy Denver tour (Reviewed by me separately) and our guide Julia pointed out the Brown Palace Hotel and told us some interesting stories about the hotel and how it was actually built by Henry C. Brown in order to compete with an existing hotel that refused him entry because of his attire (The other hotel doesn't exist anymore.....).
The building is worth a visit even if you don't take the High Tea!!! However, if you are already there, it would be a crime to miss it!!! It is the best!!!
It is not cheap (Far from it....) but is definitely worth the experience. We sat next to a pretty lady playing beautifully on her harp. The tea selection was very extensive and it was served with a beautiful silver triple tiered tray with wonderful scones (Yes, with delicious Devonshire clotted cream and jam!!), tasty "English" triangular sandwiches and assorted cakes. Everything was delicious!!
The impeccably dressed waiter even brought us another (complimentary!!) round of sandwiches.
The setting is magnificent and steeped in history!! Take a walk around when you are through!! There are also guided tours of the hotel if you have the time.
High Tea at the Brown palace....A MUST!!!
