“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

What can you say about a hotel that has its own well and keeps bees on its roof? This was my third or fourth stay at the Brown Palace and it has become one of my favorite hotels, period - and I've stayed in plenty. It's one of the most unique properties in the country, and therein lies its charm. The rooms are a good size and as well appointed as any other Mariott, the restaurants are excellent and there's afternoon tea in the main lobby area, which is like sitting in the living room of a mansion. The hotel's location is excellent, in the heart of downtown a block from the pedestrian mall. Highly recommended.

A professional staff, and decent accommodations, but not the high standards I've experienced at other top level Marriott properties.

There's a good degree of charm in the common areas and dining facilities, but my room, which was a good size, was less than palatial. Although nice renovations bring the room and bathroom to modern standards, the fixtures and decorating of the bathroom could have been from Home Depot. The closets were tiny and I had to hang the few items of clothing I brought with me "sideways" because the closet depth doesn't allow anything else.

Sure, nice robes, but no slippers...They didn't remember the room service breakfast menu for the second morning, which is a shame because they lost out of serving me a $25.00 continental breakfast (including tip...)

Decent place, but as a Marriott fan, my preference leans to the JW in Cherry Creek. Even as a cigar smoker (the BP has a cigar bar named Churchill's which I've previously reviewed) I'd rather not stay here. The Brown Palace is "well situated" if you're inclined to a somewhat desolate downtown. If being entertained by your surroundings is of interest to you, JW at Cherry Creek is the place to stay.

Spent a lovely 3 nights at the Brown Palace. Astonishingly elegent interiors albeit slightly confusing light switches. Treated myself to the $25 breakfast of bacon and eggs which was out of this world. Excellent location, less than a block from one of the main shopping thoroughfares.

Denver is the mile high town so be prepared for dealing with altitude, it takes a day or two to get used to it. Drink lots and lots of water.

The Brown Palace is step into elegant times. The Victorian architecture is like no other. The rooms are extra large with very, very modern features. The food and service in the restaurants is five star. Not only a great place to stay overnight but take time to tour the hotel.

just had a wonderful four days at the Brown Palace, in a king room (340) in the corner of the building. amazing room ... big and roomy, lots of windows. if it had a bath tub it would have been even better, but great rain shower and double marble sink unit. very comfortable bed, and wonderful high quality writing desk. felt like ernest hemingway had been there the night before. this historic hotel is quite extraordinary inside .. the view from the lobby up to the wonderful stained glass atrium is spectacular. and the cigar bar at night is a slice of heaven for smokers. it might just be my new favourite hotel in the US.

Room Tip: i think it's probably worth spending a few more dollars and getting a deluxe room or even a suit...

You can't beat the Brown Palace. Service is always superb and the food at all restraurants is top notch. So glad to live in Devner and have close access at all times. Brunch at Elyngton's is the best in town and getting drinks at the Ship Tavern or Churchills is always a class act.

This hotel was delightful; my husband and I recently stayed here for four nights and enjoyed every minute: beautiful atrium lobby; impeccable service; large, comfortable room and terrifc restaurants (especially the "casual" restaurant "Ship's Tavern, which had a special gluten-free menu for one of us (a gluten-free Ruben!). Highly recommended.
