Great Stay at Brown Hotel
We loved our stay at the Brown. Everyone was friendly, the service in lobby bar was great, the valets were very nice and efficient and the rooms were very spacious. Our only disappointment was that there was no place for breakfast within the hotel on Mondays. We would definitely stay there again.

Did not disappoint
After a very rough start to the year, we wanted to stay at a place where we would be pampered. The Brown Hotel did not disappoint. The staff were very polite, warm and helpful. The food we had at the hotel restaurants was amazing. The only annoyance was that a lot of the roads in downtown were blocked off on the morning we left because of a 5K race. It took us over 1/2 hour to get to a destination that should have only taken about 5 minutes to get to. It would have been nice to have been warned about the race and the road closures the day before so that we could have worked our schedule around it.

The Historic Brown Hotel
Beautiful old hotel with lots of history. Many pictures on the walls showing it’s fascinating past. Excellent restaurants, featuring the historic “hot brown”, which was delicious. The staff was exceptional.
