nice hotelPosted Oct 7, 2014
Pros: the history about the place. the staff was helpful and friendly.
Cons: The valet parking fee is to high.
A nice hotel. I did think the room was a little small and they charged a lot more for it than what it was worth. Valet parking price is extremely expensive at $34 a day. Most downtown hotels charge $20. Because of these issues I don't know if I'd stay there again.

Wonderful, historic HotelPosted Sep 10, 2014
Pros: The champagne & cheese upon our arrival was very nice. Hotel tour was GREAT! Beautiful place to stay. Will go back for sure.
Cons: What I experienced....nothing.
Location: Located within walking distance to many major attractions and eateries. Molly Brown House, Museums, Parks, The Capitol, The Mint, Coors Field.
Great location. Walking distance to the 16th Street shopping Mall, The Capitol, The Mint, museums, and the "free" Mall Ride took us just blocks from Coors Field. Wonderful and informative Hotel tour too. Take it if you can. Some exterior restoration was being done and an elevator was under repair, but other then that great experience! Dined in The Ship Tavern. Yummy!!!

Classic Hotel, over priced!Posted Sep 2, 2014
The Brown Palace is a beautiful older hotel with great lounges and restaurants. But the room was small, lacked a bath tub and generally the decor of the hotel and room are dated, thread bare in places and desperately in need of a restoration. Especially if they charge the extremely high rates for the room and in the restaurants/bars. Service was also poor with the exception of the valets and bellman and room service. Several times we went to the front desk to find it unattended, the concierge also failed to deliver a package to us which we later found out was indeed delivered. After several queries, the package turned up a day late. Unfortunately, we found this classic hotel is riding on its name from the past and no longer delivers on its past reputation.

Amazing HotelPosted Aug 19, 2014
Out of all the places I've stayed in downtown Denver (or any city for that matter) this has been by far my favorite place! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful with luggage, recommendations, directions, etc...when I first got up to the room I was blown away with how immaculate and exquisite the room was! I'm looking forward to the next time I have the opportunity to stay at the Brown Palace again.

The step up into the bathroom could be tricky.Posted Aug 11, 2014
Pros: We really enjoy the restaurants all under one roof - particularly the afternoon tea area, Tavern, Churchill's and Ellington's.
Cons: Keep in mind that older people may have difficulties with the bathroom step.
Location: Some of the locations were 16th Street, Lannie's Cabaret, LoDo, and the Denver Performing Art Center.
The room was beautiful as always.However, for our next stay we will ask for a room without a "step up" into the bathroom. We appreciated the chauffeur service to and from a downtown club. The afternoon tea manager allowed us to keep it simply - one pot of tea and a few small pastries - without the full team menu.

Old world charm in DenverPosted Jul 28, 2014
Pros: The location, the beautiful decor, the restful atmosphere, the friendly staff and the bathrooms.
Cons: The lobby noise drifts up the grand staircase so I would avoid a room near the grand staircase.
Location: Shopping, restaurants, movies, bowling, museums, zoo and much more.
The Brown Palace is a beautiful hotel right in the heart of downtown Denver. It is very close to a mile long pedestrian walkway that is filled with shops, restaurants and activities. Our room was on one of the upper floors so it was a "newer" built room but it was nicely appointed with a spacious bathroom and sitting area. The water pressure was wonderful!! The staff was very friendly and courteous. Be forewarned that the in-house restaurants are very "proud" of their food but the portions are fairly large which helps offset the price.

Charming Historic HotelPosted Jul 27, 2014
The Brown Palace offered luxury, charm, and friendly service. The staff were in no way pretentious or haughty, and the accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The best parts? The old escalator over to the fitness area and the shower!!!

Very Nice HotelPosted Jul 22, 2014 on Hotels.com
My husband and I decided to go to Denver for a quick weekend trip. Having never been before, I blindly chose this hotel and was happy I did. The location was nice, close to a lot of shopping, close to the rental car places (so we could get to Rocky Mountain National Park), and we also were able to walk to the Botanical Gardens (it is two miles away). The hotel itself was very opulent with a piano player, high tea, and a very professional staff. The room was quiet and comfortable. I would definitely stay at this hotel again should we come back to visit Denver.
