Its been a while since I last stayed at The Brown. When we were caught in unexpectedly bad I-65 traffic we decided to spend the night in Louisville on the way home. A quick consultation with Trip Advisor showed the Brown highly rated versus the other hotel we were considering - so we chose the Brown. And we are SO GLAD we did!
Our room was completely lovely. A room with heritage and personality. A Comfortable night's sleep. Great buzz in the lobby bar when we arrived very late on a Saturday night.
Hospitality - A special salute and thanks to the Best Doorman Ever - Stephen. He was not only very welcoming and took great care of us, our luggage and our car, but when one of our suitcase locks jammed, he arrived back at our room swiftly with a hacksaw and tools to immediately remedy the situation. When he saw us the next day, he addressed us by our name; perfectly pronounced. A nice touch. Highly Recommended for a complete hospitality experience! Enjoy the bar AND the J Graham Restaurant on the first floor.
