My husband and I went to Louisville for a weekend trip, I have heard lots of positive comments about The Brown Hotel so we decided that was the place to stay. We were quickly greeted by friendly and helpful valet staff (also extremely nice when we left). The hotel itself is beautiful, old world charm and very clean. Our room was on the 9th floor and although not overly large it was very clean and comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was nice, bright windows and gleaming clean. We had a drink at the lobby bar which was a fantastic area to relax and enjoy the atmosphere. That evening we took a walk about 2 blocks to Fourth Street Live. We felt safe walking and there were lots of other people out and about. We enjoyed the location of the hotel because it is slightly out of the noise/young crowd of the Fourth Street Live venue but easy enough to walk and enjoy it if you wish. We had great sleep, the hallways were not loud and the air conditioning worked great keeping the room temp perfect. I would definitely recommend this hotel. The only neutral comment I have is the breakfast buffet at J Grahams Cafe inside the hotel wasn't that great. It was included in our room package but we didn't think much of the food choices or quality. Not terrible but we've had better.
