Certificate of Excellence
Located at the corners of Fourth and Broadway in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, The Brown Hotel is one of Louisville's most treasured landmarks. Built in 1923 at a cost of $4 million by J. Graham Brown, the hotel was a magnet for many prominent guests and celebrities during the 1920s through the 1950s. In 1971, two years after the founder passed away, The Brown closed as a hotel and later reopened as the Board of Education building.

Historic hotel in downtown Louisville that is close to bars and restaurants. The rooms are decent size and clean. The only problem was lack of hot water for the shower, it seems it would flow hot than back to cold. Excellent valet staff.
