Have a drink in the beautiful, historic lobby, but don't stay here. The carpet is threadbare, the wallpaper is peeling, the linens are very old.

This about the third time staying at the Brown (I believe) and it always is a good choice.

Elegant, historic hotel in the downtown area and within walking distance of some great bars and restaurants.

Had dinner at the Sports & Social Club and enjoyed many Sunday NFL games.

The rooms are very nice and I recommend an inside room which are quieter and away from most of the street noise.

A excellent choice.

My husband and I just got married on October 24 at the Brown Hotel. We had the most exceptional woman we called our "head hancho" taking care of everything. She took care of everything from booking us all the way to becoming our new life-long friend. Her name is Jeri Stewart and she is fabulous. The ceremony room was perfect and the reception hall was gorgeous. Overall my husband and I sum up the entire evening as perfectly unforgetable. Our hotel room was very clean and had a warm sense of welcome written all over it. Everyone we came in contact with was curteous and always willing to help. Although it might take a while to check in/out it is more than worth it. I just want to say thank you again for a wonderful night we will NEVER forget!

We stayed at this hotel and it was very nice. Our room was a little bit small but the atmosphere was very nice. The closed and latched bathroom door kept opening during the night and another party in our group kept seeing their bathroom door knob handle turn by itself.

I recommend this hotel even if it could give someone the heebie jeebies. If there was a ghost they didn't bother anyone.

We recently attended a large, three day wedding event. It was wonderful! The location of all the party rooms was ideal and closely connected. The lobby was drop dead gorgeous and very conducive to meeting up with friends or cozying up with a book or game of chess in between parties. Particularly appealing was the sound of live piano throughout the hotel. The maid service encountered in the hall were all very pleasant and greeted one with a smile and our room was well appointed and historic in atmosphere. We were very impressed with the establishment's ability to handle the massive amount of organization needed for handling a room flip between the ceremony setting and the following dinner party. A cocktail party in a second lovely room kept everyone entertained and the switch was completed in a timely manner. And hats off to the young woman who was so accommodating in fetching me a to-go coffee one morning. You would have thought I had ordered a 5 coarse dinner with the kind time and attention to securing cream and sugar. It's all in the details that make a hotel guest feel pampered. The Brown Hotel remains on my favorite list of fabulous hotels.
