Great decor and ambiance. The daily piano music in the lobby was lovely. Great restaurant and I really enjoyed the club level buffet breakfast. Staff was very engaging and always pleasant. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Louisville.

A great historic hotel kept in great shape. Outstanding, well trained people and great food. Nice location to the activities of downtown Louisville. One of our best hotel visits in years. They did a great job displaying their history. The lobby is something to see.

Located at the corners of Fourth and Broadway in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, The Brown Hotel is one of Louisville's most treasured landmarks. Built in 1923 at a cost of $4 million by J. Graham Brown, the More hotel was a magnet for many prominent guests and celebrities during the 1920s through the 1950s. In 1971, two years after the founder passed away, The Brown closed as a hotel and later reopened as the Board of Education building. Less
