The reputation of the Brown Palace is exceptional, so it's hard to live up to the legend. The Brown Palace is indeed everything it purports to be. It has the convenience of a chain (Marriott), but the charm and service of years gone by when traveling was much more glamorous.
Given that it is an older structure, it is built solid and therefore quiet. The service, food, atmosphere, and everything else are impeccable. If you shop carefully, the prices are quite reasonable for what you get and the convenience of downtown Denver. I had the chance to chat with a long-time housekeeper (Mary) who told me about the history of the hotel. It seems that the property manager lives in the hotel and is 'in the trenches' with the staff quite often. That's old-school true leadership, and it shows.
I didn't have the chance to visit the spa, but I can't imagine it being less than stellar.
I will never stay anywhere else in Denver.
