By far the best hotel we've stayed at in Louisville. Easy check in and out. Staff absolutely awesome. Troy and Kennedy made us feel like family. Please try the Brown Hotel you'll love it. Great food and a nice selection of great bourbon.

The Hot Brown was way different than expected but delicious. Not a sandwich at all. Very upscale hotel but don't let thst deter you from going. They don't care what your wearing, you get treated as a valuable customer. Lovely old decor.
