Saturated with history. This hotel was an amazing stay. Full of history and restored to its original 1920’s splendour. We felt spoiled by all the staff. They go over and above. The food is spectacular as is their Old Fashions. We loved our stay.

Best bar in the area! The room was beautifully appointed and the pillows were especially fantastic. Location was well suited for all activities and easy to walk everywhere. Amy at the front desk made us feel like family and was very accommodating. Walked in numerous other hotels to check them out, and we would no doubt stay at the Brown again. Hands-down the best!

My colleague and I tried to eat here. We paid for an Uber and we didn’t get service! I expected better than this place. We were persuaded to sit down and try again. Nobody came to our table. I actually poured water for us. It was awful and we left. Expect a reply. Doubt I will get one. Avoid!

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts, and please accept our apologies for your experience. We have since been made aware of what caused the lapse in service and intend to take measures to prevent this from happening again, however we want to acknowledge that this should not have been the case in the first place. We sincerely regret that this was your one experience with us, and we hope to get the chance to make this right in the future should you ever give us another try.

In town for a conference and went to the hotel restaurant to order a “Hot Brown”. It was AMAZING! Definitely worth the visit. When you go, ask for Andres, he was so delightful. The hotel is BEAUTIFUL! The service is outstanding. Will definitely be back.

We loved our stay at The Brown!! It is a beautiful building and location. The staff is very professional and friendly. We had a great experience at the lobby bar. Our dinner was delicious!! The piano player was an added bonus to the experience.

Recent stay at the Brown. Very old historical hotel. My first thought was mmmmm should have stayed at the Marriott but that thought quickly vanished . From the bell hop valet parking; check in folks; waiters; bartenders; the customer service was unreal. It was like something from the old school days. All the associates seemed really happy. The food was delicious; I had the best dirty martini ever. We hit the restaurant after a concert and they had a piano player; so nice. The brown is just a short walk to the Louisville palace. Rooms are good sized; extremely clean; beds comfy. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Wonderful experience at gorgeous old hotel. The staff put it over the top with exceptional service. Extra special attention from J Graham’s staff members Sue, Kat and Megan making us feel welcome with their service and great stories of The Brown Hotel.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. Our room was perfect—comfortable, good view—-and the hospitality exceptional. We had drinks and the petite hot brown at the bar for dinner. The next day at brunch, our server, Kat, surprised us with a celebratory (and flaming!) dessert. (We were celebrating a promotion, our anniversary, and a birthday.) We are looking forward to our next trip! Couldn’t have had a better stay!

We stayed here about 5 years ago, just before Covid hit. The beautiful lobby drew us back. But, the exact same errors that made us uncomfortable the first time around still exist, and we will not be back a third time. The reservations system is not at all user friendly. The front desk is always so "busy". (If you are always like that, why not hire adequate staff so that people can be taken care of?) Bar service is slow, and the particular bartender we had was also rude. Our room was not ready (and check-in is at 4, so this is unexcusable), but, the next morning, by 9:40 a.m., housekeeping was knocking on our door to ensure that we would be out of there by 10:00 a.m. checkout time. No compensation at all for not having the room ready ---- not even a bit of a late checkout. The one service area that is top-notch is the valet/bell service. Good for you. My advice: get a drink one evening if you are in Louisville (if you can get a bartender to wait on you). Don't stay there. Good-Bye, Brown Hotel.
