Though the rooms are a bit smaller than newer, chain hotels, The Brown Hotel compensates with luxury on the cheap. The Louisville landmark glitters with chandeliers and opulent furnishings—perfect for fairy tale-loving guests of all ages. Families can connect with the hotel’s colorful stories in various “history nooks” around the property, with tales of a storied past.
Recent renovations have taken this grand old hotel and added new furnishings, carpet, and lighting, plus high-def televisions and high-speed Wi-Fi. Genteel touches include hand woven throws and goose down comforters in each room.
Another benefit of staying here: the doting concierge and complimentary transportation to downtown attractions.
