Hard Miles to the lap of luxury

A travel blog entry by uhlarcar

Some ************* the long and twisting state route 66 took us into the lap of luxury at the Brown Hotel. See above review for further details. In the morning we did a little more skirmish hounding at Long Creek, and then returned to the Homemade Pie and Ice Cream Kitchen. Probably should stick to dessert at this place, as the food seemed to be an afterthought and took a year to prepare,

Dinosaurs, Road Side Attractions, and Louisville!

We left Nashville around 9:30am and drove straight to Dinosaur World. Come on, you know the one. You're cruising along I-65, singing to your radio, when you see it. IT. The huge T-Rex with the coloring of a tiger. We've joked so many times about going, so we thought WHY NOT!

Well let me tell you...Dinosaur World was a let down. Now please …

And they're off!

We have always wanted to leave on the Wednesday of Derby week and were finally able to do so. The stars aligned and we were both able to be absent from work so we went for it!

We originally had reservations for this night at Horseshoe Southern Indiana, located about 15-20 miles from Louisville. However, the rising Ohio River meant both the …

3rd overnight

A travel blog entry by aprils331

Yay! A flight without any drama! We boarded and headed on our way to Louisville with no problems. We got in about midnight. It had been snowing and the roads were bad on the way to the hotel. We were going to go to the Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum but with the roads the way they were. It would just depend on what the roads are like in the ...

The Adventure Has Begun

Today, we moved our motor home to Camp Carlson in order to warm it up, ie; thaw it out, charge the batteries, and get the heat pumps running. Most of the day was spent packing everything we need in order to live away from home for the next two months. It's amazing how much "stuff" you need! Pattie and I will sleep at the house tonight since we still have much to move to the coach tomorrow. Getting excited! We leave Saturday ...

    Saw a Priceline Deal just within our budget to stay at another Historic Inn of America. Located in kind of a ghetto-looking part of town, the hotel itself was very nice I must admit, although it put a hurting on my wallet.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Brown Hotel Louisville

    What a Great Hotel!

    from

    I have stayed at the Brown a number of times over the past 2 years. Service is consistantly top notch. The staff are among the friendliest I have ever encountered. They all stop to greet guests as we walk through the hotel.

    They recently renovated the sleeping rooms and lobby. They did a great job. The beds are more comfortable than mine at home. The new furniture feels like home, not the standard commercial pieces you see in most hotels.

    Love the free high speed wireless internet.

    Best hotel of all my travels. Highly recommend.

    A Lovely Classical Hotel

    from

    A lovely old hotel in downtown Louisville, convenient to shopping and attractions. The service was GREAT and the free shuttle to and from the airport and to downtown areas (I think they said anywhere within a mile) was delightful. Food and service were good in the casual restauarant.

    What Brown can do for you....

    from

    We spent a Saturday night here in September and loved it. The lobby is gorgeous without a doubt. We took a minute to let the 80 years of history soak in before checking in. The front-desk lady was more than friendly and happy to direct us to where we trying to get. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bed itself very comfortable.

    The bathroom was very large with huge windows letting in a ton of natural light. Located only a few blocks away from 4th Street, we walked over to the Hard Rock Cafe for dinner.

    Anyone looking for a nice hotel at a good value or a place that steps you back in time a little bit , the Brown should be a good place for you.

    Fabulous stay

    from

    We stayed at the Brown for one night in August and had a fabulous time. The lobby was beautiful, although the front desk was a little hard to find (on the second level), but our room was the most impressive of all. We were given a corner room, queen size bed, and the carpet was obviously brand new. The bathroom really impressed me. It was huge! The toiletries were delicious-smelling Caswell-Massey almond and aloe. The bed was very comfy, with a fluffy down matress pad. I was sad that we were only there for one night. I will definitely return.

    OK if you're going to the theatre

    from

    Stayed at the Brown the night of 5/19/04 because my mother and I were going to see the Moody Blues at the nearby Brown Threatre.

    Overall Pleasant Stay

    from

    Stayed at the Brown for one night in April 2004. Overall, I enjoyed my experience mostly because ot the unique setting. Old-fasioned, historic hotel with beautiful lobby etc. Rooms were large, but you could "feel" the age of the hotel in the bathroom. Free wireless internet access throughout the hotel worked perfect and was convenient. Dinner at the casual restaurant was excellent as was the breakfast in the cafe. Free airport shuttle was great too.

    The best

    from

    Highly reccommend the concierage level. Food spectacular-seating tough to get during derby tho. Room service is wonderful. They took care of me like I was somebody-and believe me there were some movie people they had to tend to-but They got me seated across the street for the Pegasus parade. Made sure I had an early edition of the race paper-tho I never ordered it-sent my lost purse to me in the mail-rushed to the airport for me- Hey- They were #1Sorry about any bad stories you read- must have had employees out sick-cuz they are classy Beautiful place-lot of history and the best beds!!!! Don't miss it-Linda Lencioni

    Loved it!

    from

    I stayed in one of the suites at the Brown Hotel while visiting for the Kentucky Derby. It was a wonderful experience, I loved every minute of it. The staff was wonderful, they even specially oredered meals for me and brought them to my room. It was definately classy!

    Bad service

    from

    Went in after the David Copperfield show for some desserts and after dinner drinks.They couldn't have cared less that we were there.Put us on a wait for desserts with plenty of open tables in view.Obviously understaffed.We had been looking forward to it.They really gave us a bad feeling and we left.

    Hated the brown

    from

    we have stayed at the brown several times. all the other times were exceptional. this time was a disaster. room mixups two nights in a row. room service was never right. we were laughed at with our truck and made to feel inferior at the desk. not a good stay.
