We LOVED The Brown Hotel! The architecture was amazing! The food in the restaurants was fabulous! The home of the Hot Brown lived up to our expectations! We would definitely recommend The Brown Hotel to anyone visiting Louisville. We shall return!

Historic hotel and staff service and demeanor were excellent . Dining room food and service excellent with variety and flavors on the menu coupled with attentive service.

Our experience was one of a luxurious room inside of an elegant, historic, hotel. The lobby, on the second floor, is an excellent place to sit and relax and enjoy the environment. Location is great, just south of the busiest part of Louisville.

We were charmed by the historic ambience, yet everything in the room that needed to be up to date was. Staff was attentive and helpful.

Beautiful, classic old hotel. Staff eere exceptional...rooms were huge.

The hotel was beautiful and very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The area was full of things to do with easy access to a variety of restaurants and bars.

Very nice hotel. free wifi and the club room were great features. I would stay there again and reccomend it to others.

We loved the Brown, so classy and beautiful! Some things did seem a bit dated, but it was clean and spacious, and staff were wonderful! We will certainly be back!

Very nice historic hotel. The English Grill was a superb restaurant.

Execeptional Service. Beautiful decor. Great food and drinks. Best old fashion I have ever had. Try out English Grill. You will not be disappointed.

The hotel shuttle was wonderful and took us to dinner and other places. This hotel is about a mile from the downtown sights.

Terrible comfort. Mattresses are terrible. Do not book here

Everyone was friendly and their club room is an excellent addition. Room was nice and clean and lobby looked fancy.

Nice to see a classic and historical hotel so well-maintained and operated

First day was great! Second day, didn’t receive towel for floor. Four towels taken/ only replace two when asked for four. Ice bucket not cleaned and water remained in it when we returned. Needed new batteries for remote.
