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.

When you turn on to 4th St. from Broadway, The Brown Hotel is on your right. You can either pull up in front for valet parking or go a few more feet, turn right which takes you in to the parking garage. Park on the 2nd level and there is a walkway on the left of the elevators that take you inside to check in. Very easy!
