My sister and I took a Saturday night mini-vacation at the Brown, even though we live in this city. We were delighted with our corner room on the 10th floor, which had two very comfortable beds. It was a very big room with south and west views; a big bathroom (the shower had a bright light and a curving shower rod-- nice touches, as was the real soapdish); and lots of windows. Each bed had a specially woven throw depicting the Kentucky Derby (which was to take place the following week). A copy of the city magazine was provided, along with a guide to attractions. There was a two-person-sized easy chair that was well-stuffed and as comfortable as the beds. The staff was gracious and helpful. Sunday buffet breakfast at J. Graham's Cafe on the lower level was a bargain and wonderful; we usually won't touch scrambled eggs on a steam table, but theirs were delicious, and so were all of the other dishes. When we walked down the street to find a restaurant for dinner on Saturday, we passed a few disreputable-looking folks, which is not suprising in a downtown area, but the hotel itself was wonderful. We will recommend it even more strongly to friends who visit our city, now that we have enjoyed it ourselves.
