    Great unique hotel with wonderful food

    The Brown Hotel had great service and extremely comfortable beds. However, our room was not the cleanest. Room service food was delicious, but we had issues with getting the entire order delivered correctly both times we ordered. Overall, the issues we had were minor, and we are looking forward to staying again.

    I love the old hotel feel. I appreciate a grand hotel experience and The Brown delivers. The decor is opulent. The dining options are perfect. The service is impeccable. I’ve been twice in the past 2 months and can’t wait to go back again.

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

    Main complaints were the quality of the mattress in the room was terrible and the fact that the fire alarm went off twice in the middle of the night. The second time with instructions to evacuate the building. At that point, we were unhappy enough that we just quickly got dressed, packed our bags, and left. In our walk to the parking structure we learned that it was just another false alarm. I called the next morning to verify checkout and told the lady why we left, but she didn’t really acknowledge hearing what I said. I’m not one to formally complain About much so I just left it alone and didn’t say anything else. We normally stay at one of the Hilton hotels up the street and thought we would try the Brown this time. A mistake we will not ever make again.

    The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was clean. The bathroom tended to be a little on the cold side. We were on the club floor so we enjoyed the continental breakfast both mornings. The hotel is beautiful.
