We just returned from stay #4 at the Brown Palace and I've come to the realization that this is my favorite hotel...ever. I've tried to figure out what makes it so amazing and realized that it's really the sum of its parts. Quite simply, the hotel is simple, not ostentatious, perfection. It's the small things that make the Brown so special--the bellman who gave us an impromptu history lesson of the Brown, a single fresh flower in the bathroom, a Keurig coffee machine in the rooms, fluffy pillows on the bed, a stretch out and relax cigar bar, cocktails in the atrium...I could go on and on and on.
I'm a rabid fan of all things art deco so we've only stayed on floors 8 and 9--the art deco-themed rooms (floors 2-7 are Victorian). How can you not love a hotel room that comes with a silver water pitcher sitting on a silver tray? This plus the fact that the hotel's water comes straight from its own well makes me a happy customer. I'll add that I'm a stickler for hotel cleanliness and have never had any issues with rooms at the Brown. In fact, I've even taken baths in the wonderful, deep tubs (separate from the shower)--usually I'm a showers-only girl at hotels.
This trip we introduced our (adult) children to the joys of Churchill's, the Brown's cigar bar. A cigar and a glass of scotch (champagne for the ladies) was the perfect way to end the evening. Years ago, when my daughter was young, we enjoyed afternoon tea in the hotel's atrium--a treat every mother/daughter should experience at least once.
Pricewise, this trip we spent $245 on a 2 queen room on floor 9 with AAA. Not bad at all for a holiday week in downtown Denver. We will return to the Brown Palace as often as possible--I love this place!
