Travelers' Choice
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 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.

We had a two day stay over New Years. This time was planned because of time off, not the Holiday. We arrived around 8pm. All dining and bar areas closed at 10pm. This was not a problem for us and judging from the number of people in those areas people were aware of the requirement. We had a king bed room. Very spacious. Loved the extra large sofa. Room was spotless. The safe was great. All employees wore mask. Hand sanitizers were plentiful. We were never in an elevator with others. The elevators did have a sign limiting guests to 3 per elevator. Loved the Christmas decorations in the lobby. We had breakfast and dinner in the Lobby Bar. Both were excellent. Visited the gift shop downstairs and found several gifts for the new year. Valet staff were all friendly and made us feel welcome. All the staff really made our stay.

Hotel's Favorite
Our visit to the Brown Hotel this trip included our normal evenings in the lobby bar for our favorite Hot Brown, as well as a very nice dinner hosting friends from Ohio to an evening of wonderful food and even better piano music. Few places we travel too allow us to feel at home and allow us to host friends like it was our own house. Thank you to entire staff for a fantastic stay.

My wife and I drove 2hrs to stay/relax one night at this hotel. It’s beautiful when you walk in, the lady that checked us in was pleasant and kind. My wife and I had dinner at the hotel, all the waiters were very friendly and very attentive to our needs. The room was great large and comfortable. My only complaint would be and it’s minor, the bathroom is on the outside wall so the floor was as cold as ice> We will stay here again.

My wife & I live near by and I surprised her with a dinner at the hotel. After briefly talking to Judd G. an employee he gave us and another couple a private tour of the hotel. Judd went above and beyond the call of duty. We had a great dinner & total experience. We will more than likely come and spend the night as a couples get away.

The Good: grand full service hotel, spacious, great service, awesome restaurants, fantastic bar The Bad: not cheap, a little worn The exterior is classic iconic old Louisville. Parking on-site is valet with a fee. The lobby is fantastic with gigantic ceilings and extraordinary detail. It was built in the 1920s and the Art Deco shows through. The front desk was quick and very courteous. Our room was very large by modern standards with a huge gorgeous bath. We also had a huge closet. The TV is large enough with easy log in for Netflix. The room was clean and well maintained in general but the occasional scratch on hardwood can be seen. Room service was excellent with huge portions. The room service coffee was actually very good. The bar was also fantastic with extraordinary takes on classics like the Old Fashioned. The price was very reasonable for a Hotel this fine. Parking is extra and a bit spendy. Service at all stages was great. The Road Word: if you are anywhere near the region go to the Brown. It’s a rare place in a commonplace world.
