    About

    A Louisville legend, the Brown Hotel is beloved by generations of guests for its Georgian-Revival elegance and timeless Southern charm. Anchoring downtown Louisville with a firm grasp on history paired with a 21st century appreciation for hospitality, this landmark hotel at the corners of Fourth and Broadway blends breathtaking architectural features with the modern amenities and services today’s most discerning travelers expect. From exquisite event space to the city’s finest dining, the Brown infuses every experience with gentility and refinement.

    Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Brown’s prime location offers easy access to many of Louisville’s most in-demand destinations, including the Brown Theatre (across the street), the Palace Theatre (half a block) and the Kentucky International Convention Center (seven blocks). The hotel holds the coveted AAA Four Diamond rating, a testament to its setting, service and exquisite sense of style.

    A recent $12 million renovation has taken this grand old hotel and combined it with all of the contemporary necessities. So now, you can not only experience genteel, Southern hospitality in historic grandeur, you can do so in updated guestrooms with new furniture, lighting and carpet while watching 37" hi-def televisions and taking advantage of high-speed Internet access.

    With amenities like hand-woven throws at the foot of the bed, granite bathrooms and goose-down comforters, guest rooms at the Brown blur the boundary between residential retreat and luxury hotel. And while its 293 guest rooms and suites are sanctuaries of effortless style, no trip to the Brown is complete without a bourbon flight in the Lobby Bar or a Hot Brown in the English Grill where, critics agree, “perfection is possible.”
