“The Highest High Tea Anywhere!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

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!!!

“High Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

The Brown Palace high tea is not to be missed if you like a wonderful High Tea Experience. It incorporates all the elements of an English high tea without the price and without having to go to Britain to participate! What more could you ask for? Great atmosphere,food, service.

“A great Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is high tea with everything thrown in. Little sandwiches with the crusts cut off. Freshly made scones and an assortment of sweets. Clotted cream for the scones was delicious. An endless tea pot topped it all off. The live piano music was wonderful. A very old fashion affair. We loved it

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Fun to dress up and enjoy the old formalities of days ago. Unlimited tea, cute and tasty tea sandwiches and delectable desserts. Loved the piano player but they had a harp player one day and it seemed more soothing. Be prepared to spend a lot for the experience.

“So relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

What a unique experience. The Tea Room is located in center of the hotel lobby with comfortable seating, lovely piano music in the background, delicious scones and great company. I really enjoyed the tea too. I wish we had time to stay longer.
